PHOTOS: New U•Rest Areas for Removing Face Masks Debut at Universal Orlando Resort

With Universal Studios Orlando reopening, the Orlando heat decided to come along as well! While practicing social distancing and extra health precautions, wearing a mask all day might start to take a toll on you. To safely allow guests to remove their masks, Universal has set up U-Rest Areas throughout the park for guests to do so.

These areas throughout Universal Orlando Resort provide guests with a large area for them to safely remove their masks and practice social distancing.

These areas are staffed with Team Members to answer questions and to ensure proper safety measures are being followed. These sections are located normally where there is a large enough space for social distancing and have seating available for guests to relax.

This one here is located within the Fear Factor Live theater, as the show is currently not performing.

Central Park in Universal Studios Florida also features a U-Rest Area, conveniently next to a food cart, so you could enjoy your snack and beverage without a mask in the park while taking a little break.

At Islands of Adventure, the Port of Entry plaza has been converted to a U-Rest Station, and also makes a really good photo op area!

Tables and umbrellas are in this area as well, including ledges by the planters that guests can rest by.

This might be our favorite stop just because you can see so much of the rest of the park! From Jurassic Park and the construction of the latest rollercoaster, to Mythos and Hogwarts just in the distance, it’s definitely a good time to grab pictures without your masks on.

Another really nice U-Rest Area is within The Eighth Voyage of Sindbad Stunt Show theater.

Guests can enter the theater and enjoy a break while the stunt show is currently not performing.

Guests can take in the sets of the stunt show and stay spread out inside while enjoying their break.

There’s even a U-Rest Area in CityWalk down by the waterfront, which offers up great views and a nice photo op location.

What do you think of these new U-Rest Areas throughout Universal Orlando? If you’re in need of a mask or want to represent Universal with yours, make sure to check out their branded face masks available for purchase!

Great idea, poor execution. The few of them that I saw were right near designated smoking sections which kinda defeat the purpose of getting “fresh air” with the mask off…

You are going to make rest areas so people can remove there mask 🤔 ok the air where they are standing is still the same all over the park so how does them stop spreading germs just like smoking areas the smoke still
When all over does make sense mask some be worn if someone chooses not bc it’s mandatory. This is not China they wear them all the time and have worn them bc of so much pollution there . And most people do t even know how to take there mask of the right way

It is good that the parks are starting to reopen and have areas for people to rest. It looks like the Jurassic coaster is coming along well. That looks cool! I still think that the Lost Continent needs either a dark ride inside Poseidon’s Fury or make it a brand new land. Also, it will be interesting to see in the future what is going to happen with the Marvel and Simpsons lands whenever contracts expire. I’ve seen concept art for a DC land that was originally planned and heard about maybe a Pokemon land in the future. We’ll see… Read more »

And so it’s begun! No one wants to wear these masks in that dreadfully hot and humid weather and inhale their own hot breath. Soon their employees will be passing out, getting sick from over heating and needing to go home. Good luck with this dumb rule. This virus is like a flu virus that isn’t prevalent during the summer! Even if it was floating around, over 90% of people that do catch don’t have symptoms and if they do, they recover. This is ridiculous rule!

The facemask thing is getting a bit ridiculous. You have to have a mask on to get through the gate at volcano Bay, but once you do you dong need if. You need to have it on again to leave. What’s the point. No one wore one all day!
