    Universal Orlando Resort launched a new mobile application that gives guests full control of their adventure by providing immediate attraction wait-times, interactive park maps, customizable favorites lists and more – all with the swipe of a finger. The app is available as a free download for Apple and Android mobile devices.

    In its pursuit to enhance theme park mobile technology, Universal Orlando also announced the debut of FREE park-wide mobile Internet access, with Xfinity WiFi, the nation’s largest Wi-Fi network. High-speed Wi-Fi is now available across both Universal Orlando theme parks – Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida – and at Universal CityWalk. Coverage includes all main walkways, most indoor dining and shopping venues, plus attraction queue lines. To connect to Xfinity WiFi hotspots, guests should select the “xfinitywifi” signal (or SSID) on their mobile device and follow the prompts to access the free service. In-park Xfinity WiFi will allow guests to run the Universal Orlando mobile app, along with other web-based experiences, at a faster rate while conserving data usage.

    The Official Universal Orlando Resort App boasts several unique features, including an interactive way-finding function that utilizes GPS-enabled maps and real park images to visually guide guests step-by-step to their desired attraction. The app’s in-park features provide information on special show times, ride updates and more, while its intuitive sorting feature allows guests to explore Universal Orlando by park, by activity or by amenity.

    The app will undergo continuous enhancements over time, with plans to add features like e-commerce purchase capability, customizable itineraries, social sharing and more. To download The Official Universal Orlando Resort App, visit the Apple or Google Play app stores on your mobile device.

    That is brilliant, I knew the hotels had Free Wifi recently, but now the parks have it thats awesome. I normally pay for a local sim with data included. That'll save me a bob or two.
