Disney plans Facial Recognition Technology test
25 March 2021 16:52 GMT

Disney is conducting a limited 30-day test using facial recognition technology.

The technology captures an image of a Guest’s face and converts it into a unique number, which is then associated with the form of admission being used for park entry.

"Participation in this test is optional. For those interested in volunteering to participate in this effort, please make sure you arrive with valid theme park admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation", said the company.

Children under the age of 18 who wish to participate may do so with the consent and in the presence of a parent or guardian.

The company said the software test comes "with the future in mind" as we shift toward "more touchless experiences."

On Tuesday, the park released guidelines for park guests on what to expect from the facial recognition software test.

Special entry lanes will be designated for facial recognition, so guests can choose whether or not to use them.
