  • Lending Disney a hand - Orlando Sentinel, 7/14/05

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/busin...ness-headlines


    After the ticket line and a bag-search checkpoint, visitors to Walt Disney World now have to make one more stop before entering one of its theme parks: at a finger scanner.

    Disney guests must now put their index and middle fingers into a device at the turnstile that assigns a code to link the image of their fingers with their name and ticket.

    Disney says it's simply part of an attempt to find a more foolproof system to block the use of stolen and shared tickets.

    But privacy advocates say the practice is troubling because it moves consumers a step closer to eventual acceptance of a national ID card or a drivers license that stores biometric data.

    "Slowly but surely we're just giving away our right of privacy, and the question is what are we getting in return?" said Larry Spalding, spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union. "We get all these massive databases, and how secure are they?"

    Some tourists also questioned the finger-scan machines.
