Volcano Bay is the premier water park at Universal Studios Resort and in our opinion the best water park in Orlando, however, as with any water park safely storing your belongings while on the water slides, rapids or swimming in the water can be a logistical nightmare.

Luckily, there are a number of lockers across Volcano Bay suitable for bags and other personal belongings. Sadly, lockers at the water park are not free and instead the price of a locker is dependent on the size you require.

We’ve stored our belongings in lockers multiple times while visiting Volcano Bay, however, in certain circumstances we’ve also gone without.

Does Volcano Bay Have Lockers?

There are four locker stations across the Volcano Bay waterpark; Wave Village (East), Wave Village (West), Rainforest Village, and River Village.

Each station has three different-sized lockers available and is next to the restrooms which are suitable for changing.

How Much Is A Locker At Volcano Bay?

There are three different locker sizes available at Volcano Bay;

  • Mini at $10
  • Regular at $16
  • Family at $20

The price of each locker is based on a full-day rental and can be paid for using either a credit card or TapTu Pay.

What Size Are The Lockers At Volcano Bay?

Given that there are three different locker sizes, and subsequently prices at Volcano Bay it’s important to find the right locker size for your requirements.

  • Mini lockers are 14.11 in. x 5.52 in. x 17.72 in.
  • Regular lockers are 16.25 in. x 12 in. x 16.9 in.
  • Family lockers are 12 in. x 16.9 in. x 24.3 in.

As such mini lockers are ideal for basic items such as a phone, car keys, and bank cards in a fanny pack or equivalent. Meanwhile, a regular locker is better suited for backpacks and family lockers for two backpacks or a backpack and some additional items (towels etc.)

Do You Need A Locker At Volcano Bay?

Depending on what you’re bringing to Volcano Bay and who you’re visiting with you may not need to invest in a locker.

When we visited Volcano Bay as a couple we chose to bring our phones and bank cards. Subsequently, we rented a locker to keep them safe while we went around the park on waterslides together.

However, when we visited Volcano Bay with my parents they weren’t able to go on any rides and instead only went in Waturi Beach when the waves were turned off.

As such we chose where we sat specifically so we could see our belongings while in the water and didn’t bring any valuables with us.

Given this based on our experience, lockers are perfect if you want to store certain items such as your Universal Orlando spending money, cameras and phones safely while exploring the park.

That being said, you might not need one if someone is going to be at or near your belongings while at the park.

If you do choose to rent a locker while at the water park then note that lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

As such you’ll want to ensure you arrive with enough time to get a locker if you wish to use one.
