Disney World is trialing a new FastPass system that will utilize RFID technology to speed up ticketing lines at Disney’s popular rides and theme park attractions, according to ITWeb.
As part of the new trial, guests will be able book their rides and attractions for specific times in the future, even before entering the park. They will also each receive an RFID card to wave by scanners placed at participating attractions in order to check-in their arrival.
Disney’s current FastPass system enables park goers to receive paper passes, return to attractions at a future time, and then bypass the lengthy lines.
The RFID-based system is expected to replace the existing system of distributing paper FastPass tickets, however no information regarding a full roll out has been released.
