Universal Orlando Resort is making spending the day at their theme parks easier with the launch of an all-new mobile app, along with free park-wide Wi-Fi.  The new service will allow visitors to plan their day on their mobile device, even making on-the-go updates via the Wi-Fi service in the parks.  Read on to learn more about this new Universal Orlando Resort service.

The new mobile app gives guests the most vital need-to-know park information.  Access to immediate attraction wait times, interactive park maps, customizable favorites lists and more options make navigating the park and planning your day much easier.  Plus, the Universal app is a free download for Apple and Android devices making it a no-brainer for any Universal Orlandopark-goer.

With free Wi-Fi now available throughout the park, it will be easy to stay connected without running up your data usage on your cell phone.  There are two ways to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspots known as XFINITY. If you’re an existing XFINITY customer, select the “xfinity” signal on your mobile device.  If you’re not an existing customer, select the “Universal” signal and follow the prompts.  It’s that easy!
Several other unique features are included on the Official Universal Orlando Resort App.  Need help finding your way around?  No need to grab a map.  Simply use your app.  It has an interactive directions function that utilizes GPS-enabled maps and real park images to visually guide you through the park.  You can also search the app by park, by activity or amenity, as well as find out information on special show times, ride updates and more.  Extra enhancements will be added over time, including customizable itineraries and social sharing.  For now, though, be sure to download the app to make your day at the park a seamless one.  Click here for the iPhone version and here for the Android version.
