Going Through New Facial Recognition Park Entry Procedure at Walt Disney World

Recommended Posts

Something Seaworld/Busch Gardens has been doing for 2 years....


We announced this morning that new facial recognition technology was being tested for park entry at the Magic Kingdom. The facial recognition test is now active again and we got to check it out for ourselves!

The process is extremely efficient and seems like it might go a long way to help eliminate long lines to enter the park.

Large signs make it clear that this lane is specifically for guests wanting to participate in the test. It is completely optional.

Guests must keep their masks on, however they are asked to remove hats and sunglasses while passing through the entrance.

Guests can hold their park ticket or MagicBand up to the scanner while looking at a camera to have their image captured. The scanner shows the Mickey head that can be seen on MagicBands and the correlating touch points. Stars appear while the scan is taking place, and then guests are free to enter the park. The image that is captured here is then converted into a numerical code that corresponds to each guest’s park admission.



More information was released on the Walt Disney World website about the process and addressing any privacy concerns.
