Video: Here’s the facial recognition test process at Magic Kingdom

Disney is currently testing out a new facial recognition system at the entrance to Magic Kingdom. Guests can use the optional process in a dedicated lane that is set up with the scanning technology. The test is expected to last about a month.

This video from Brooke on Twitter summarizes the experience.

Brooke didn’t capture the screen during the test, but she said it informs the guest to “Look here,” before displaying Mickey ears when the scan is complete. While hats and glasses must be taken off during the screening (best remove them!), guests can keep their masks on.

Assuming these tests go well, we expect the facial recognition scanners will replace the old fingerprint scanners. Facial scanning is usually more accurate than fingerprint scanners, and it provides a way of scanning into the parks that doesn’t require guests to physically touch the same space. That’s a welcome change.
