ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Universal Orlando Resort is reversing its policy of banning bottled drinks from being brought into its theme parks from the outside.

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 says 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.
