Disney World to start scanning fingers of young kids at park entrances

Disney World is changing its entrance policy for kids.

Children ages 3 to 9 years old entering Disney World theme parks will now have to have their fingers scanned, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The reason, the Orlando Sentinel reports, is an attempt to stop the use of shared and stolen tickets. Because there were no finger scans associated with the tickets, it would be easier for others to use the tickets.
If parents do not want their children's fingerprints uses, they can use their own on the ticket.

Disney World starting using the finger scanning in June 2005 at all of its park entrances to work in conjunction with the tickets. The scanners takes a picture of several points on each person’s index and middle fingers and assigns a numerical value to the image and associate it with the ticket.
