Guests visiting Universal Orlando have a new way to plan their day on their mobile devices and can do so using new Wi-Fi service in the parks.

Universal’s new mobile app provides immediate attraction wait times, interactive park maps, customizable favorites lists and more. The app is available as a free download for Apple and Android mobile devices.

Universal Orlando has also debuted free park-wide mobile Internet access with Xfinity Wi-Fi. High-speed Wi-Fi is now available across both Universal Orlando theme parks and at Universal CityWalk. Coverage includes all main walkways, most indoor dining and shopping venues, plus attraction queue lines.

There are two ways to connect to XFInITy Wi-Fi hotspots. XFInITy Wi-Fi customers should
select the “xfinitywifi” signal (or SSID) on their mobile device and follow the prompts to access the free service. Non-XFInITy Wi-Fi customers can select the “Universal” signal on their mobile device and follow the prompts. In-park Xfinity Wi-Fi 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.
