What Happens If You Are Caught Vaping?

With so much open, outdoor space at the theme parks, you might think you can sneak in a quick vape and no one will notice.

However, there are security guards throughout the theme park, and many undercover security guards are wearing plain clothing so you will not know who they are.

If you are caught vaping, you can be asked to leave the theme parks and prohibited from returning without a refund of your ticket purchase. Universal Studios is private property and you can be asked to vacate the premises.

What is Universal Studios’ Marijuana Policy?

Marijuana is prohibited at Universal Orlando Resort and not allowed, even in the designated smoking areas.

Universal Orlando Resort’s vaping policy is similar to their smoking policy. You will find few places to use your electronic cigarettes inside the theme parks.
