Universal Orlando Resort Launches All-New Mobile App
Plus FREE Xfinity WiFi Now Available Across Both Theme Parks And CityWalk

ORLANDO, Fla. (June 11, 2014) – 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.

About Xfinity WiFi
Xfinity WiFi from Comcast is the nation’s largest and fastest Wi-Fi network with now more than three million hotspots across the U.S. The Xfinity WiFi App, available as a free download on both iOS and Android devices, makes it easy to locate business and outdoor hotspots, or customers can visit the hotspot finder map online at www.xfinity.com/wifi.

Comcast’s Xfinity WiFi network includes:
- Outdoor Hotspots: Comcast has placed Xfinity WiFi hotspots in public locations across the country, ranging from shopping centers and commuter stations to parks, sporting venues, beaches and boardwalks.
- Business Hotspots: Most Comcast Business Internet customers are eligible to receive an Xfinity WiFi hotspot for no additional charge when they order service. This is a value-added service that directly improves their patrons’ experience. Examples include restaurants, cafés, bakeries, retail establishments and office waiting rooms.
- Neighborhood Hotspots: Comcast is currently in a phased roll-out to give residential customers with Xfinity Wireless Gateways the option of having a second “xfinitywifi” signal (or SSID) in their home that is separate and distinct from their private and secure home Wi-Fi signal. This additional signal provides separate access for visitors without the need to share the home’s private network password.
