For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Universal Orlando has just extended its temporary closure. More details below.

Read the statement below:

BREAKING: Universal Studios is Extending Temporary Closure

We are extending the closure of Universal Orlando Resort at least through May 31 as we continue to respond to current conditions and make the health and safety of team members and guests our top priority.

This includes our theme parks and Universal Citywalk. The Universal Orlando Resort hotels have also temporarily suspended operations through this time period.

We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed, based on guidance from health agencies and government officials.

Universal refund policies:

Can I get a refund?

Unexpired single-day tickets that have already been purchased will be valid on any day for 365 days from the purchase date. Unexpired multi-day tickets that have already been purchased will also be valid for first use on any day from 365 days from purchase – but, as always, must be used within seven days of first use. If you cannot travel during this time, you can apply the value of a wholly unused ticket toward a new purchase.

What about Annual Passes?

Annual passes will be extended by the number of days our theme parks are closed. Existing benefits and restrictions will continue to apply.

More information regarding resort hotel refunds and other event refunds can be found on the Universal Studios Resort website.

I am the only person who thinks if Universal ends up reopening its parks before Disney does, i think they will have no choice, but to kick start a 50/50 deal for the Marvel theme park rights in Central Florida, where Universal's Islands of Adventure keeps the Marvel Island themed land(as well as the rights to still allow Spider Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man Thor, the X-Men, and the Fantastic 4 at UOR), while Disney World rolls out the following Marvel heroes(Black Widow(to coincide with the 11/6 release of her movie), Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Ant Man and the Wasp, and Scarlet Witch(to go along with Doctor Strange) for meet and greets just in time for WDW's 50th Anniversary.

PS: I'm keeping my fingers crossed about a Trolls unit joining the Superstar Parade, replacing and completely phasing out Nick's Dora and Diego characters and units, as well as promising all of us to bring back She Ra to IOA, as for no reason they phased her out on Leap Day :(
