As the fall season approaches, you can see the responsibilities piling up before your tan lines even have time to fade. But what’s the best way to beat those “daily grind” blues? And more importantly, how to fit it into your crazy schedule?

An island getaway featuring: you, a drink, the beach, and our favorite volcano. Universal Volcano Bay is waiting for you.

Come fall, summer temps make way for warm, breezy days. Perfect for a getaway at Volcano Bay without having to hide from the sun under an umbrella. So while your friends up north sip on hot cocoa as temperatures drop, post your picture-perfect drink on the beach photo and warm them up with some jealously.

Trying to avoid crowds? Coming in the fall means avoiding peak season, which means more room to float in the Kopiko Wai Winding River. Not to mention shorter wait times for select attractions, with some that even offer a “RIDE NOW” option. Less crowds, less waiting, more ride now. Something tells me I don’t need to say anything more than that.

But before you start packing, I’ll go ahead and finish your itinerary. Volcano Bay is surrounded Universal Orlando’s hotels. Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort—Volcano Bay’s closest neighbor—is home to a vibrant, retro-style theming that will have your nostalgia at an all-time high.

Plus, you can “leaf” the fall views behind for a view that cannot be beaten: the mighty Krakatau.

Among its bowling alley, fire pits, and themed dining, this resort also boasts a walking path that will bring you straight to your island paradise. Plus, when you stay at any of our hotels, you can get into the parks one hour before the parks open and make the most of your time.

And while you’re here for your getaway, hop on over to Universal’s two other theme-parks: Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure. These parks have more than enough fun and thrills to fill up the rest of your getaway. They say don’t run away from responsibilities, but what if you ride a roller coaster away from them?

Finally, what’s a getaway without an escape from making dinner too? We’ve got you covered at Universal CityWalk, where you’ll find anything-but-ordinary dining experiences like The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar and The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen. Sit back, forget the pre-dinner tornado that happens at your house, and why NOT order another milkshake? After all, it is your getaway.

At Volcano Bay, fun in the sun doesn’t just stop after summer is over. A getaway is the perfect way to experience all that Universal Orlando Resort has to offer this fall.

So, while some of your friends will spend their fall watching leaves plummet to the ground, you can plummet 125 feet on the Ko’okiri Body Plunge.

We’ll see you soon!
