Would you like to wear an RFID bracelet that will let you into your Disney hotel room, the park(s) and track your every move?
Hello, privacy police. I don’t need to see a princess, it’s not my birthday and I’d rather be a pirate and like to pay cash and have you leave us alone. You already have our ID and have scanned us for weapons.
Now it’s time to scan for additional marketing opportunities. OK, I’m showing my age as the only time I went to Disney World was when families had to check the A-E rides. The E-rides were Pirates of the Caribbean and the brand new Space Mountain. It was a 90-minute wait for Space Mountain so we passed.
We have now negotiated FastPass at Disney Land and enjoy time there. We can’t tell you my husband’s system but we enjoy both parks and especially the night-time parade and fireworks. OK, we buy passes to both parks and go between them as time limits permit. Over the limit is OK, before, you have to wait on a Fast Pass.
My husband is a software engineer and I’m a privacy pioneer. How could we get bracelets that allow us to enter our hotel room, get into the park, go on a ride, buy a yogurt breakfast, juice or lunch without being tracked every moment?
My privacy bill was named 1984. In 1984. I believe Disney is going too far even though I still love Space Mountain, in California, an easier area to walk from realm to realm.
