Universal's Volcano Bay Opening Day Kicks Off Summer Fun

by Mommy Frog on May 26, 2017 Orlando

Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks. 

Here are this week’s theme park highlights

Grand Opening of Universal's Volcano Bay - Krakatau

Grand Opening of Universal's Volcano Bay - Opening Ceremony Dancers

  • With an opening ceremony that featured an enchanting South Seas dance performance while the majestic Krakatau volcano flowed in the background, Universal Orlando Resort's newest theme park opened to the public May 25. We had a BLAST attending Universal's Volcano Bay Opening Day as part of the Universal Orlando Blog Squad. We tasted the island-inspired food and drinks while tackling the fantastic rides. Yes, your intrepid frog reporter braved the Ko'okiri Body Plunge—and survived. Look for more details soon.
  • On the other side of town, Leap attended the dedication of Pandora—The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom. From Flight of Passage to the bioluminescence that makes the Mo'ara Valley a beautiful spot for a nighttime hop, Pandora exceeded our expectations. The Disney Parks YouTube channel has highlights of the opening ceremony. We have more video and a full review coming soon
  • SPOILER ALERT. With Guardians of the Galaxy—Mission BREAKOUT! opening this weekend, media reviews have started popping up. Laughingplace.com posted a lengthy and spoiler-riffic description of the attraction with some neat pics. We'll be hopping in this weekend (red eye flight from Orlando=coffee) and will give you our take on the attraction and the Summer of Heroes entertainment next week.
  • Jack is back!"Jungle Jack" Hanna returns to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay this weekend, May 27-28. During Jungle Jack Weekend, guests can hear stories of his travels, and attend meet-and-greets and autograph session.

That’s it for the theme park news this week. Have a great weekend!

Hoppy planning!

Keep hopping, Mommy Frog!
