ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — Universal Orlando lifted a ban on outside bottled drinks being brought into their theme parks.

Universal spokesman Tom Schroder said Thursday that the theme park resort has gone back to its original policy of allowing outside drinks like bottled water into the parks.

The outside-drink ban was short-lived, only lasting several days.

Schroder said the ban was intended to be temporary as the resort reviewed its procedures.

Universal in the past had allowed visitors to bring in small snacks and water.

But visitors on Monday were told to throw them out before entering the Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures parks, as well as the CityWalk entertainment complex.
