Visitors who are on the Autism spectrum or have other cognitive disabilities now have a safe haven from the hustle-bustle of the Universal Studios theme park.

The new room has rubber floor tiles to dampen noise, an activity panel wall, dim lighting, and two hiding tunnels.

Use of the room is free.

Universal Orlando continues to evaluate their resort for additional spaces, including at Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay, a representative said.

As of March, 2022, locations around all three parks and at CityWalk have been identified for use by guests who need a low-stimulation environment.

Universal Orlando’s “Guide for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities” expands on this, offering insights for enjoying a day at the parks; outlining areas some guests may find challenging, along with suggestions for overcoming each challenge; providing a sensory stimulation guide to each attraction; pinpointing Companion restrooms; and more.

The guide also details quiet areas guests can seek out in Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay, and CityWalk.
