Universal Orlando joins SeaWorld in offering an official mobile app

The app also integrates with Facebook for check-ins and Open Table for restaurant reservations. App users who check in to a specific number of locations currently can get a Universal Orlando savings guide.
Universal Orlando joins SeaWorld in offering official mobile apps. SeaWorld's app offers several other neat features, including a "car finder" (accessible under "More") that allows you to drop a pin when you leave your car in the morning, allowing you easy GPS directions back to it at the end of the day. The SeaWorld app defaults to the SeaWorld park nearest you, using your phone;'s GPS feature. (That's why you're seeing San Diego.)
The SeaWorld app also includes maps, show times, a restroom locator, local weather and facts about the various species of animals in the park. Just search for "SeaWorld" in the App Store.
Disney has yet to offer an official mobile app for anyone other than Verizon customers (*corrected, see comment), though it has partnered with Gowalla as its official check-in app.
(*I'm on AT&T so I can't see or use Disney's app, so I'd appreciate thoughts on that in the comments.)
Of course, there are a slew of unofficial apps offering park maps, directories and attempts at estimating wait times. Search for a park name in the App Store and I'm sure you can find whatever's available.
