January 2, 2005 – Finger Scans are Now Required for Entry into Walt Disney World


On January 2, 2005, all guests entering any park within Walt Disney World were required to scan their fingerprints in order to limit access to those who have valid park tickets or passes. The scanner took a biometric reading of a guest’s fingers, capturing it so that all further readings will be matched to the first scan. The idea of fingerprint scanning was met with mixed reactions due to the sensitive nature of personally identifiable information, but it was discussed at the time of adoption that other parks, such as Universal Orlando and SeaWorld, were in the process of adopting the biometric scanning process for guest identification.
