Well, 3 years after work on the scene initially began, it is finally functioning…
It seems Disney may finally be ready to roll out these “StoryMaker” elements that were installed years ago when MyMagic+ was initially rolled out. These elements include this finale scene, but also interactive elements installed but not activated inside Star Tours, the Hollywood Brown Derby, MuppetVision 3-D, and Expedition Everest, just to name a few.
The elements will use information read from the RFID media the guests are carrying, such as their names or park photos, to create personalized moments. This technology will also allow characters at meet and greets to know the names of the guests they are meeting or cast members at various locations to know when a guest is celebrating a special occasion.
We will have more on these new elements as they continue to roll out.
