Disney: Enhancing the guest experience
With millions of visitors pouring into its theme parks every year, The Walt Disney Co. is always looking for ways to improve the experience of its guests. Disney is now testing wearable tech called a MagicBand -- an RF device containing a bit of code that communicates with the park’s servers. (The bands themselves contain no data.) Guests who want to use the MagicBand will fill out some basic preferences and information on the Disney website and use it to enter their Disney Resort hotel room and theme park, make a fast-pass reservation for a popular ride, and buy food and merchandise, all with a tap on a reader.
