3. Cool Off At Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park
Relax in a tropical paradise alongside a tranquil beach or enjoy thrills on Krakatau Aqua Coaster. Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park is the perfect way to cool off this spring.
While you’re there, try the delicious Waturi Fusion Ice Cream. This rainbow celebration of ice cream is just what you need to relax in the sun. From pizza, burgers, and tacos to salads, chicken, and even a quinoa edamame burger – Universal’s Volcano Bay has food perfect for whatever you’re craving!
With this theme park being so new, it is important to get there early. To add to the incredible benefits of being a Passholder, Volcano Bay will now be offering Early Park Admission to 3-Park UOAPs from May 1 to May 31, 2018.

4. Mornings Are Despicable, But Minions Make It Better!
Enjoy an awesome breakfast buffet at Cayman Court, and fill up on pancakes before heading to the theme parks.
I’m not a morning person at all, but the Minions are the best excuse to wake up early and start the day! Our on-site hotels offer special UOAP rates; make sure to check out your latest offer.
5. Chow Down on Doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnut
Voodoo Doughnut is opening this spring in Universal CityWalk. Voodoo Doughnut gives the perfect excuse to keep coming back with over 50 one-of-a-kind doughnuts to choose from, including vegan options.

6. “Must Go Faster” To Celebrate The 25th Anniversary of Jurassic Park
The OG Jurassic Park film was released June of 1993, making 2018 the 25th Anniversary of its release.
With so much excitement surrounding Jurassic Park, Universal’s Islands of Adventure provides the perfect setting for a celebration.
Take the time to cool off in the beautiful Florida weather by riding Jurassic Park River Adventure and seeing many of your favorite dinos.
7. Get That Sunshine In Your Pocket By Visiting Your Favorite Trolls
Having two young nieces, ages 2 and 4, I have become very familiar with all the Trolls. The obsession with these characters is very real. Even as an adult, I completely understand why.
Make the time to visit with your youngsters this spring as Branch and Princess Poppy are out meeting guests at Universal Studios Florida.
While you’re at it, take the time to visit with other characters in our parks like Kung Fu Panda, Hello Kitty, the Transformers, and more!
8. Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Honk Honkers Cotton Candy
The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Kitchen provides the most amazing way to cool off from the Florida sun: Milkshakes! And they have just added three new milkshakes to their menu.
Make sure to head over to CityWalk to try one of the latest milkshakes (and my personal favorite) the Confetti Shake. With vanilla ice cream, vanilla buttercream frosting, rainbow sprinkles, fresh whipped cream, and a slice of confetti cake on top you can’t go wrong.
While spending your time at Islands of Adventure, make your way over to Seuss Landing to get a bite out of Honk Honkers Gourmet Cotton Candy.
Did I mention you get to create your cotton candy dream? Choose from Blue Raspberry, Pink Vanilla, Jolly Berry, Apple, Grape, and Birthday Cake to get your creation started.
Top your pillow of cotton candy off with rock candy, sprinkles, animal crackers, marshmallow bits, chocolate bites, chocolate cookies, or chocolate sprinkles.
