The one thing that always annoys us at any theme park is the wait times, and even worse is when you don’t know them in advance! That’s the best part of Universal Orlando Resort’s new mobile app, for both iPhone and Android.
The app is said to give guests full control of their adventure in the park, providing them with immediate wait times, interactive park maps, customisable favourite lists and more!
How do we use it, I hear you say? Universal Orlando also announced FREE WiFi coverage throughout both it’s parks and CityWalk, so you’re never going to be without the app! Best of all, coverage includes all main walkways, most indoor dining and shopping venues AND 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.
Back to the app, it boasts several unique features including an interactive way-finding function that utilises GPS-enabled maps and real park images to visually guide guests step-by-step to their desired attraction. It also provides 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.
However, one of our favourite functions of the app, is to store where your car is parked!!! We’re always forgetting that, and with the many parking lots and thousands of cars, we’ve spent countless times wandering the car park looking!
Thanks Universal, it’s definitely being added to our “Holiday Kit”!
