PHOTOS: Walt Disney World Surveying Guests About Facial Recognition Entry Process

Last month, Walt Disney World began testing facial recognition as a form of park entry. We participated in an optional test ourselves, and have now received a survey regarding the system. Check out our screenshots from the survey below.

After checking that we did participate in the facial recognition test and how many times we participated, the survey had us rate aspects of the experience.

The survey asked for ratings based on our initial experience first. We rated total time spent at the entrance, comfort level, ease of use, and overall experience.

The survey then asked us to rate the same aspects from our subsequent experiences.

Finally, the survey asked how the test impacted our visit and if we would use facial recognition again.

here is my survey response. disney must promise not to sell or give my facial recognition to any other entity. if they cannot promise that simple request to protect my property, then they can go suck eggs!
