  • What's next, DNA samples for park entry?

    WDW announced today that everyone visiting the park will be required to submit to a scan of their fingers as proof of ID.

    So now you can expect to be printed if you commit a crime or visit WDW. How wrong is that? :rant:


    And remember boys and girls if you agree that this idea is a bunch of hogwash, then keep those cards and letters coming!

    Today the Dept. Of Homeland Security expressed "intrest" in being able to access the WDW system too. Interesting.

      I wouldn't worry too much, they hardly ever work...

        a.) this is old news
        b.) the APs have been required to do this for ATLEAST 6 years
        c.) you stick two fingers into a scanner, then you go in

        I have no problem with the system and it's main focus is on killing the blackmarket for multi-day hopper passes. Calm down, it's not the end of the world.

          I totally agree. We've been doing this for a very long time (As AP'ers) and I think it works really well. I don't see why anyone would think this is a big deal

            Re: What's next, DNA samples for park entry?

            It's funny, I visited WDW for the first time a few weeks ago, and the only park that asked me to do this was EPCOT. We were staying at Coronado Springs, so we had the "Ticket to the World" deal with our room key, and I always wondered how that worked. They never scanned our fingers when we checked in, so how would anyone know if it was really me? And why was it that only one park used it? I saw other people scanning at MK for sure, but they just waved us through. I thought it was odd. I was wondering if maybe they were new, and weren't into full operation yet, but it seems they are. Now it's an odder mystery...

              Your facts are a bunch of hogwash. Disney's scanners don't take finger prints, so it's useless to any law enforcement agency.

              And it is also old news. And the system is planned for use at other Disney parks, though funding just hasn't appeared.

                I would like to see WDW's management put as much emphasis on cleaning the park, improving and modernizing the MK's look and run down attractions and facades, and employ better CMs...as they do for finger printing and faux security measures that are as flawed as their lack of Disney Legacy knowledge.

                  If I've commited a crime, I SHOULD be fingerprinted. If I want to visit WDW and I haven't committed any crimes (and am not planning on committing any) what the heck to I care?

                    For the final time, THIS IS NOT FOR SECURITY AT ALL. This is a measure to attach someone to a ticket, like a photo. The machine does a bone scan and then puts the data on the ticket. It's like a photo and there is no way Disney will know as there is no main computer bank. This is a way to stop all the black market multi-day park hopper sales on International Drive! The attachment of this program to the "declining" of the MK is beyond absurd.

                      Umm, no. Disney does keep a database of finger photo points. You see, these scanners take a photo of your finger and assign a numerical value to different points on your bone structure. That information (the numerical values) is saved in a Disney controlled database. The magnetic strip on your pass does not contain the information, it only contains a number that accesses your account on Disney's database. The ticket it self doesn't contain the actual finger numerical values, just your account number.

                      However, you are correct about the reason this is used. It is used to stop transfer of unused tickets or un-used days on a ticket.

                        At least the Disney ones work. I've done it at Busch Gardens only to have to do it at least three times before they gave up and asked for ID.

                          You know, I'm quite for DNA samplings for entry, but only if it were to go straight to their on-site genetic laboratory in The Land...

                            I'm for DNA samples, as long as I am the test subject, get free access to WDW and all the facilities on property, comped meals and valet service to and from all the parks.

                            Yeah baby! Make me a guinea pig!

                            LOL Seriously, I don't see this as a big deal. If they want my fingerprints, fine. If a person is trying to access WDW that is wanted for some crime then I am grateful to those people for keeping out the criminals. You get the good with the bad I guess. I honestly don't care as long as I can enjoy the park and have a good time.

                              I totally agree with that. This could be money well spent in a host of other areas!
