(Orlando, FL) — Disney is now utilizing touchless facial recognition technology at its theme parks in Florida to identify guests as they enter.

Facial recognition technology was tested this morning at the entrance to Magic Kingdom. Disney says testing will continue sporadically as the company shifts to using more touchless technology. Guests must remove any hats or glasses before passing through the testing lane. However, masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus must be worn throughout.

The test was optional this morning, and testing will continue sporadically. The test was only conducted for a short period today.
