We loved our time at Universal’s Volcano Bay. It was my kids favorite of all the parks by far. We stayed at Cabana Bay which was connected to Volcano Bay so you can’t beat the convenience of being able to walk to the park!
When we first got to Valcano Bay I was just amazed at how authentically Polynesian the foliage was. It really set the tone for the whole park. We recently traveled to Hawaii this past year so the feeling of the tropical surroundings made me almost feel like I was back in Hawaii!

You also get a dedicated server who will serve you food and drinks and provide you almost anything you could need (even provide complimentary swim diapers and baby wipes when you run out!) If you are visiting with young children I would

I can’t really speak to any of the big water slides, but we sure did have a blast in the wave pool, the lazy river and the kids area.
