Universal has already been pushing guests to use the app instead of paper maps, which are currently available to pick up at the front of theme parks. Take a look inside a paper Universal Orlando Resort map.

Though the maps are convenient, they do create lots of waste and large companies have been striving to be more environmentally-friendly. That said, not everyone has a smartphone to use the mobile app.

This is still a rumor and has not been confirmed. Stay tuned to Universal Parks News Today for updates.
