Disney Springs’ parking garages will soon have new technology aimed at improving guests’ parking experiences, according to a recent permit filed by the Reedy Creek Improvement District with Orange County.

According to the permit, Reedy Creek will install a $2.37 million new system from Indect Parking in the Lime and Orange garages, as well as the upcoming Lemon garage. The company is known for creating a system that uses cameras to capture and store images of visitors’ license plates. This could be used to be able to locate exactly where guests’ vehicles are for those who cannot find them, as well as determine when peak hours are and how often certain guests visit. This comes with concerns about privacy, though it should be noted that by law, the company cannot find out who the vehicles are registered to.

The system currently in place was designed by Q-Free/TCS, which uses ultrasound to detect whether spots are filled with a large object, which it assumes to be a car, and adjusts the number of free parking spaces accordingly on signage. There is no word on what technology will be used with the new system, though it is expected that this will replace the Q-Free/TCS system entirely.

UPDATE: John Classe, Reedy Creek’s District Administrator, has informed us more about the new system coming to the garages, which will continue to use ultrasound and not cameras. The technology will be used track vehicles entering and leaving parking spaces.
