Alexa takes a vacation as Universal Orlando launches new app

Alexa can now tell you information about Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood

Universal Orlando announced today that they will be adding Alexa support to its devices with a new skill.  This new skill will allow you to get information via an Alexa device such as:

  • Wait Times
  • Show Times
  • Park Hours
  • Points of Interests (Such as Restrooms, Restaurants, Guest Services, etc)

The Universal skill for Alex is not just for Orlando either, it also works with Universal Studios Hollywood.

Here is how you get things going:

Visit the skills section of your Alexa App or on or simply say, “Alexa, open Universal.” Once enabled, Alexa will be ready to assist. All you have to do is say, “Alexa, open Universal” and you’ll have access. And that’s it! Alexa will be able to help you plan your day.

Now if we could just get Universal to team up with UberEats to deliver Butterbeer, then we would be set!
