Visitors to Walt Disney World theme parks can see a familiar sight for the first time in over a year with the return of biometric scanners at park entrances.

What is happening:
- When Walt Disney World parks reopened after the shutdown caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic last summer, one of the first things guests noticed was the removal of biometric scans at points of contact from entrance to the park.
- Now, for the first time since last July, biometric scanners are back in place and used at Walt Disney World park entrances.
- As of last July, biometric scanners at all entrances to Walt Disney World park look like the photo below to limit the number of places guests can touch during their day at the park. Now those simple covers have been taken away and biometric scanners are in use again.
- The purpose of biometric scanning is another measure to ensure that guests are using their assigned ticket. Apparently, the scan measures a guest’s finger and assigns it a number that is assigned to the ticket used in conjunction with the scan. The next time this ticket is used, whether it’s a multi-day park hopper, a day park hopper, an annual pass, or even a re-entry to school. ‘A single day park analysis ensures that the same guest uses the same ticket and the correct credentials.
