Top 5 Reasons to Book a Universal Orlando Resort Vacation

5. Volcano Bay
Universal's Volcano Bay is a "wet" theme park.  Forget everything you know about a traditional water park, they have thought of ways to improve that!  No carrying tubes around, no waiting in long lines in the sun, and no burning feet on hot concrete!  Oh, and you can't forget the incredible Tapu Tapu wearable - no more needing to carry methods of payments around, or even a camera!  You can use your wearable to pay (link your payment method via the Universal Orlando App) and to activate selfie spots throughout the park. There are a variety of rides and experiences for thrill seekers to relaxation finders so there's something for everyone.  And, the food at Volcano Bay is even a notch above what many would expect.  You can add this third park to your Universal tickets for a small upcharge, and it's totally worth it!
