Universal Orlando- New App for Phones and Free WiFi!

 With the opening of the new "Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Diagon Alley" looming closer each day, Universal Orlando Resort has just sweetened the deal for guests.

 They've launched a new Phone App (both Apple and Android) which allows for real-time updating of Wait Times along with Park Maps, Show Times, Favorites Lists and more.  Later the App is said to get E-Commerce abilities to allow for  purchasing.

 The final blow? Universal has announced complete free Wi-Fi for all guests. through Xfinity/Comcast. This will allow guests at the Theme Parks, City Walk or anyplace on the resorts property to use the wireless network. No more running up your phones data cap posting live pictures!

 They say visitors should choose the "XfinityWifi" on their mobile device, then follow the prompts.

....still no exact opening date for Diagon Alley though.
