As technology moves forward, the theme park experience changes accordingly. Inside The Magic reported that, according to The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo Disneyland will implemente a new system for facial recognition for Annual Passholders. This decision has been made to improve the experience and eventually reduce the use of cast members at the ticket booths.
I’m curious how facial recognition technology could be used in other parks. Instead of using the Magic Band, you’re ticket, card transactions, and other information is linked to your face. With Face ID being introduced with the iiPhone X, facial recognition technology is catching fire among technology companies.
Tokyo Disneyland might currently plan on using it only por AP’s, but we could see how this technology can scale as it gets cheaper and easier to implement.
