ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - For now, visitors to Universal Orlando will have to leave their water bottles at home.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1Ai7ksL ) reports that visitors who showed up to the park Monday were not allowed to bring bottled water or other liquids into CityWalk or its theme parks.

In an email to the newspaper, spokesman Tom Schroder said the measure is part of a review of park procedures and is not permanent. He declined to say how long the ban would last or to provide other details.

The current liquid ban does not restrict baby formula or medicines, however.

It has previously been Universal Orlando's policy to generally prohibit visitors from bringing in lunches, though it has allowed small snacks and bottled water.
