BREAKING: Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay Theme Parks All Currently Closed at Capacity

We anticipated heavy crowds as we entered into the long weekend for Labor Day, and we watched as additional queue space was set up around the Universal Orlando Resort theme parks during the week in preparation for guests.

It seems the additional measures were warranted, as all three Universal Orlando Resort theme parks: Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay, are now currently closed due to capacity.

Crowds were heavy as we got through the security checkpoints and made our way to Universal CityWalk Orlando.

At the time of publishing, we were able to enter into Universal Studios Florida, despite being at capacity, but we anticipate the park will try and stop guests from coming to the resort and park entry may be cut off for those who already arrived at any time.

Will you be trying to visit a Universal Orlando Resort theme park this weekend? Let us know in the comments below!

I don’t see a whole lot of social distancing in these pictures. But, I guess no one cares anymore.

We are here currently and you can tell they are at capacity. Had we not bought express passes when we bought our tickets we would not have been able to ride anything. Even attempting to get food or drinks seems to have a very long line.

COVID-capacity but still fairly crowded in my opinion.

The parks just can’t socially distance their guests there’s no way. And there’s no way I’m going if they can’t or won’t! People are fighting not to wear their masks and they continue to be defiant to do so. No thanks I’m waiting for a vaccine and see the numbers heading downwards in Florida!

Having lived in Orlando for over 20 years we learned long ago that theme parks were not the place to be in the summer so universal must have seen this coming. I wonder how many more covid cases we’ll have by tomorrow.

No, I won’t be going back until they drop their ridiculous mask mandate. #FakePandemic

I can’t believe that any of these parks are still open amid the pandemic.

We visited for the first time and it was absolutely terrible! It took an hour and a half just to get inside the parking lot. Then we get to the park and are told only virtual lines are available but we weren’t even able to reserve a spot on anything. Then we were told to buy express passes, when we go to buy them, they were sold out! 2 hours in the park was a total waste of time. We were so enthusiastic only to be badly disappointed. The manager told us, they were still working on learning how to… Read more »

You what they do they take your money selling seasonal passes and day sell daily tickets if the park gets full those people that both seasonal passes can not go inside the park because they sold out for the day you spend 3 hours at the line and when you get to the gate they won’t let you in. They talk to you the bad way is the worse experience I have coming the universal studios this year

I would never visit any of the Florida theme parks between mid-APR and late NOV or during any holiday period, because of the crowds (and heat during the summer half of the year). I plan my trips in JAN/FEB, avoiding special events in the Orlando area like the Orlando Marathon.

The last two years I bought a Florida resident weekday only pass to avoid those times while saving money. I’m too impatient for long lines. The pass is a great perk for state residents.
