Disney Updates Finger Scan Policy For Tickets & Admission

Disney Updates Finger Scan Policy For Tickets & Admission

-Reported by Theme Park Insider

Walt Disney World is closing one the few remaining loopholes that allowed guests to share admission tickets to its theme parks.

Disney has started requiring that children ages 3-9 scan their finger in addition to presenting their ticket when entering a park. Previously, guests ages 9 and under just had to tap the ticket and were not subject to the finger scan — which made it possible for people to share or resell children’s tickets to the parks.

A Disney spokesperson told the Orlando Sentinel that parents who do not want their children to use the finger scan simply can scan their own finger on their child’s ticket instead. FWIW, Disney’s finger scan system does not store the image of anyone’s fingerprint. It generates a unique digital code for each finger scan, then associates that code with your ticket. The next time through, your finger scan generates a code again, which should match the code associated with your ticket.
