From Pacific to Atlantic - August 2019: Day 3 (Volcano Bay)


Today we had decided to go to Volcano Bay. I was awake at 5am but left it until about 6.15am to wake the others. This is when it gets stressful - I am always keen to get up and out ASAP so that we can beat the crowds and the sun but not all members of the family move quite so quickly. We popped up to the lounge to grab some food and then back to the room to get our stuff. We were at the shuttle bus stop by 7.20am and were queuing up at VB entrance by 7.45am and they started letting us in not long after we arrived. I can never remember the name of all the slides but we went on loads of them over the first two hours. The only one we had to TapuTapu for was the Krakatau aqua coaster and that was 10 mins. DH and the kids had a load of fun laughing at me screaming. On one of the raft slides I shot off the raft at the bottom and DH and the raft went over the top of me!
We also spent some time in the crazy river and the lazy river.

We came out of the park at about 11.30, just as it was starting to tip it down with rain, and got the bus back to the hotel. We popped up to the lounge for a hot drink and some snacks then chilled out in our room for a while.






Cameron and I had a very healthy PB&J Jamwich!



We wanted to get some food and were thinking about either getting an Uber to Teak Neighborhood Grill or the water taxi to Citywalk but it was bucketing it down with rain and it was thundering so the water taxi wasn't running and we couldn't be bothered leaving the hotel. We went to Jakes American Bar instead. (picture above of DS looking evil drinking from his Jakes glass!). DH and I had burgers, DS had chicken grill burger and DD had the most delicious looking grilled cheese sandwich from the children's menu. I forgot to take photos before we started eating because we were hungry so you won't be able to see how delicious it looked! The food was all really good, and we decided to have dessert but had learned from the Toothsome experience and so we asked how big the desserts were and whether we should share them - so DH and I had one between us. They were also delicious - DH and I had churro bread pudding with Dulce de Leche ice cream, and the kids both had Oreo cream pie mason jar.

Mick / Joan - yes it was a good day despite the weather, we needed a bit of chill time anyway!

Michyloulou - the weather is so unpredictable, we were very lucky as it started raining literally as we reached the bus stop at VB. I would recommend getting up early and taking advantage of the early opening if you are staying on site at Universal - we had most of the big rides done before the park was open to everyone else.
