Universal Orlando Resort is taking no chances with visitor safety and has just issued a release that they will be CLOSING completely beginning Saturday night at 7:00 P.M. and will not re-open until Tuesday, September 12.
Here’s the notice that was issued by their public relations team…
Universal Orlando Resort has made the following operational decisions due to Hurricane Irma:
Our destination will close at 7pm on Saturday, Sept. 9. We will be fully closed on Sunday and Monday. We anticipate normal operating hours on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
Our on-site hotels are currently at full capacity and will remain operational as they focus on taking care of our on-site guests.
We will hold our Rock the Universe event at Universal Studios Florida tonight, Friday Sept. 8 and will welcome Saturday ticket-holders tonight as well. The event will be cancelled on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
