ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) – Universal Orlando Resort announced Wednesday morning that both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure reached capacity. The announcement was made 10 minutes after both parks had opened.
Universal did say it anticipates reopening later in the afternoon.
The Universal Orlando Twitter account had warned Tuesday night that the parks were expected to reach capacity “very early” on Wednesday.
“If your plans are flexible, please consider visiting another day,” the tweet read.
Both parks at Universal have had limited daily attendance and attraction ridership since reopening in June. The theme park had shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Unlike Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando does not have a reservation system in place, so entrance is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
