Staying onsite at a Universal hotel is great if you are planning on spending a whole day at Volcano Bay.

Every hotel gives guests early access to the water theme park during their stay. All you have to do is show a valid room key and you can enter the park and start enjoying all the watery fun an hour earlier.

You don't need to take your car to Volcano Bay when staying onsite either. All hotels have easy park access with buses that run regularly. There's also a walking path that guests staying in Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Loews Royal Pacific Resort can use to get to Volcano Bay in less than 15 minutes. Universal's Aventura Hotel guests can be at the Volcano Bay entrance in less than 3 minutes by going through an exit in the pool area.

If you choose to stay at Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort then you get an extra perk. Like Universal's Aventura Hotel, guests can get to Volcano Bay through a "secret" entrance with its own security, making it super easy to get to the park.
