By now, you’re probably aware that Universal Orlando’s new water theme park, Universal Volcano Bay, is officially open. I bet you’re ready to take on the thrills, soak up the sun and experience everything Volcano Bay has to offer.

Your destination is set. But have you thought about where you’re going to stay?

Here are five reasons why staying at one of Universal Orlando’s hotels is the best way to maximize your visit to Volcano Bay:


1. Get In Before Everyone Else

By staying at Universal Orlando Resort Hotels, you receive Early Park Admission to Volcano Bay. That means you can enter the park one hour before the scheduled opening and check out the rides before everyone else.


2. Walk or Ride and Save Time

Forget hopping in the car and driving to the parks. When you stay at Universal Hotels you just need to roll out of bed and make your way over.

Guests staying at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort or Universal’s Aventura Hotel can walk to Volcano Bay on the dedicated walking path. Guests staying at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort and Loews Sapphire Falls Resort enjoy complimentary shuttle bus transportation.

No getting the car wet. No getting up early to drive. No parking. Enjoy Volcano Bay the hassle-free way!


3. Make Purchases with Your TapuTapu

When you visit Volcano Bay, TapuTapu becomes your currency. You can make purchases throughout Volcano Bay using TapTu Pay. All you have to do is set up an account through the Official Universal Orlando Resort App or online, link your party’s Volcano Bay tickets, add your credit card information and create a pin number. Click here to set up your account and learn more about TapuTapu before your visit.


4. Experience Shopping without the Baggage

Interested in purchasing gifts, but don’t want to carry it around? When you stay at Universal Hotels, you have the option of having your merchandise delivered back to your hotel for free. All you need to do is tell the Team Member at the gift shop you’d like to have your purchases delivered to your hotel.

Guests staying at Cabana Bay Beach Resort will have their purchases delivered to Luggage Services in the hotel lobby for pick up. Guests staying at the other hotels will have their merchandise delivered to their hotel rooms.

Enjoy a view of Universal's Volcano Bay when you stay at the new Universal's Cabana Bay Towers.

5. Enjoy Views Beyond Belief

Nothing beats waking up in the morning, looking out the window and seeing a 200-foot volcano.

When you stay in a Volcano Side Room at Cabana Bay Beach Resort, you’ll enjoy stunning views of Volcano Bay all day long.

Make the most of your Volcano Bay visit and stay at Universal Orlando Resort. You’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from the fun!
