With Florida’s Phase 1 reopening plans, Orlando restaurants are allowed to reopen their doors for dine-in at 25% capacity, and these are the ones that have let us know their dining rooms are open.
It goes without saying to follow proper distancing and safety guidelines, and if you don’t feel comfortable sitting at a restaurant yet, many of these venues also offer take-out. Oh, and tip your servers well.
In surprise announcements on their respective Facebook pages, Madame Tussauds and SEA LIFE Aquarium at ICON Park on I-Drive have announced they are reopening today.
Attendance must still be capped at 25% per COVID-19 reopening guidelines, and safety measures must be adhered to.
