PHOTOS: Disneyland Introduces New FastPass Scanners That Combat Sunshine

If you’ve ever tried to use your phone to redeem a FastPass at the Disneyland Resort, you know that the bright sunshine or the brightness setting on your device can make things a little difficult. Disney has decided to combat this by introducing new scanners, with the first installed at “it’s a small world”.

The new scanner has an area for the phone to be inserted. The dark area makes the barcode much easier to scan.

The old scanners looked like this:

As you can see, the device would be subject to brighter conditions with this scanner. Hopefully these new ones will help shorten the sometimes lengthy waits to redeem a FastPass at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
