    Probably not. We're looking at 1 day at MK, 1 day at Epcot, 1 park hop day between AK and DHS, and 1 park hop day between the two Uni parks. The arrival day could be either a water park, swimming at the hotel pool, or resort hopping, depending on the weather. I wish I could afford a 2nd Uni day, but I can't right now.

    Sounds like your arrival day should be Volcano Bay day.

    Krakatoa is looking pretty impressive beside I4 these days... We drove by on the way to the Brahmin outlet Monday and its almost closed in on the South side, but you can see the slide tubes still.

    Red arrow is red drop-from-top slide exit. Blue arrow is underground cavern of a Volcano Bay river. Yellow arrows additional things to note.

    The blue & green drop-from-near-top-of-mountain slides now reach their pool. Note these other features on Krakatau's East side.

    Restroom buildings at Volcano Bay have a distinctive design, with a tall peak between two angled roofs.

    Very likely that the Volcano Bay twisty slides closest to Turkey Lake Rd are first to have running water, and a filled pool.

    Great pictures! Didn't realize how close this was to Cabana Bay. Very impressive.

    Thanks for posting the pics. I think they may have solved one of the questions I had. From earlier construction pics, it looks like there is a large jump in elevation between Cabana Bay and Volcano Bay. I wasn't sure why they would want the ground floor on the new Cabana Bay tower looking at the side of a large cement wall. But I have a feeling that might just be a temporary retaining wall to keep dirt out of Cabana Bay during construction.

    This looks so close to the highway! Seems super close when driving the off-ramp as well. Anyone know if they are planning to hide the highway at all and how?

    Pretty handy. Things are close enough to walk too.

    In the existing structures. A tram route is being built to connect the structures to the water park.

    Just saw it this weekend. I really don't like how close it is to the highway :( I'm hoping it'll be so immersive we won't notice, but it reminds me of DL in Anaheim.

    I am lost. Are the two towers next to Cabana Bay hotel rooms or are they parking structures?

    Looked over some images lately and noticed that up the towers (noticed specifically at the Ika and Honu tower) that they have four lanes going up and down. Will it be A: 1Tapu per slide and one express or one Tapu and one standby
