App Reviews

  • Not the best

    By Apeyhoehne
    This app does not allow for proper day planning when you are in the park, or even before you go. It doesn’t show the showtimes for all of the shows, in fact, you have to go to a special page to pull up the showtimes for any of the holiday shows. It also should show the menus for the restaurants in the park, both quick and full service. The Disney World app has this feature and it is very helpful. When you get hungry and want to figure out where to go to eat, it’s much more helpful to be able to pull out the app and find a place suitable for you. It’s a pain when you find a place on the app, walk over and look at the menu and find out there’s nothing there that you want. Also, it could help the lines at the food stands if the guest can look at the app and view the menu to decide what they want before they get to the counter. The only helpful thing with this app is wait times, which don’t always appear to be accurate.
  • Not cool. Not cool at all

    By SonyaSonyae
    This is a very nice app. However I did run into a major problem. I decided to buy two park to park tickets through this app. I paid for both together. My transaction went smoothly. No issues. I entered in everything currently. It even asked me to enter in my guest name for her ticket. I did so and received my confirmation number via email. However, one major problem happened. I paid for two tickets but only one ticket showed up 😱. I had to call Universal studios for help. After being on hold for 10 minutes. My issue was resolved. The customer service lady was not sure why this issue happened. But it was fixed. Not cool app. Not cool at all. This issue needs to be resolved. Other than that it’s still a great app that I do recommend.
  • Wait times not working

    By TechWifeA1A
    Today was the first time we’ve used the app. As a method of making your way around the park and locating everything, it was great. However, we primarily were concerned with knowing the wait times for rides so that we could plan accordingly and that feature was not working all day. I tried refreshing multiple times throughout the day and made sure it had nothing to do with my WiFi connection. Occasionally, it would give a wait time for a ride or two, but for most of the day, it kept saying that the rides would open at 9:00a or would not give a wait time at all. We have annual passes, so we’ll be coming back soon and hopefully will find that this feature of the app is working as the developers intended. I will be sure to update my review at that time.
  • I purchased a Florida resident annual pass

    By gnoe77
    I called a few times with questions about the premier package, and was told I would receive one ticket per year to Halloween Horror Nights. I was also told that with purchasing the most expensive plan, there would be no black out dates. As I called today to see if I needed to reserve the date for my HHN ticket, I was then informed, after 3 calls of questions, that I could not use it on Thursday, October 11th. I am very disappointed that this was not disclosed to me in earlier calls. I was told No black out dates! I already booked my hotel, and was going to do islands of adventure the 12th. I will no longer be doing that, and I will no longer visit universal studios in the future. I am very disappointed in your customer service representatives giving me false information.

  • Consumerism

    By Ayesha0825
    Very few rides in between multiple gift shops, dining facilities and more places you can spend spend spend. It’s taking consumerism to a new level. Pay a large sum to enter a park and then keep spending as you move alone while you wait hours and hours in long lines. It doesn’t stop there, you can buy an express pass for almost the price of the ticket to enter the park, which only prolongs the lines of ppl who could not afford to pay more for express. Unless the park is spending more money and investing in running a separate ride (portion) for express passers then why ask a regular person to wait longer in line because they need to make room for ppl who get to skip ahead?. Like I said, it’s the consistent distractions where one can spend spend spend. While the parks job is to also make profits, there needs to be a limit as to how far can you go as a business.
  • Beware

    By VCorbin
    The app was useless unless you already knew what you were looking for. It was good at showing you where you already were, but not so much at telling you how to find things. After using the app at the park, my phone rapidly lost charge. After I left and charged my phone back up, I found numerous “burst” photos of up to 25 shots and at least a dozen videos that I had not taken. They were all dark, so obviously had been taken from inside my bag. I also found that the timer on my phone kept being mysteriously set, even after I had turned it off. No wonder my phone died so quickly. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but my phone had never behaved in this way before. I deleted the app and if I ever return to Universal, I will be using a paper map.
  • Delays

    By TJLJ87
    Last year we tried to go on King King, but they shut it down after we waited 90 mins. We never got to go on. This year we tried it again, we got to the same spot as last year and they called a delay...after 45 mins!? Then we waited an additional 30 mins more after that delay announcement. We did finally get to go in, but it wasn’t that great. All this hype for not much... very disappointing. We waited about 30 mins for Jurassic Ride today, but it shut down due to storm... that never came.
  • Love Universal Orlando! The app...

    By Lpryor
    The app has a lot of good info, maps, wait times, etc. However its wallet only works at Volcano Bay, not City Walk, Islands of Adventure, or the Studios. Also, would be awesome if you could load your annual passes to the iPhone Wallet. They're not something I generally carry around all the time. As a local that would make the spontaneous evening and weekend trips a little easier. As far as I can tell you can't associate your account to your passes at all.
  • We love Universal!!!

    By CeeLeeCee
    This is our 2nd trip to Universal Florida. We went to Universal Studios in Los Angeles a few times. Last year my husband wasn’t feeling well so he couldn’t attend so my sister and her husband took our places. My husband promised our son that we would go this year. He passed away a few months ago. I didn’t think I could do it but with prayer and great friends, we are on our way! It’s pricey, but hopefully we can get some great food deals!
  • The Negative Reviews Are Outdated

    By Annoyed Rock Fan
    Was hesitant to download after looking at the 2-star average rating and all the problems with "the app closing itself." Glad I went with my gut. It works wonderfully as of Sep 17 (as well or even better than the Walt Disney World app) in or out of park, and it hasn't closed out on its own after an hour of use, so I will definitely be using it on the upcoming trip! Highly recommend for anyone going to Universal Orlando soon.
