Beginning today, the Walt Disney World is conducting facial recognition testing for theme park entry. The testing was happening early Tuesday morning at Magic Kingdom and will be taking place through April 23rd.

With the future in mind and the shift in focus to more touchless experiences, we’re conducting a limited 30-day test using facial recognition technology (length of test subject to change).

The technology we’re testing 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.

Note: 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.

We know that face masks are to remain on at all times while on Disney property and we’ve heard the same is true during this testing.
