    With the introduction of Magic Bands- do we still have to scan our fingerprints to enter the parks?

    Hi Robyn! 

    That's a very good question! My husband asked me the same thing on our last Walt Disney World vacation. I think the FAQ about the Privacy Policy answers this question best. 

    "We offer the convenience of Ticket Tag at the entrance of many of our theme parks and water parks. Ticket Tag helps to facilitate ease of re-entry into our parks and helps prevent fraud.

    In order to use Ticket Tag, you simply place your finger on a reader. The system, which utilizes the technology of biometrics, takes an image of your finger, converts the image into a unique numerical value and immediately discards the image. The numerical value is recalled when you use Ticket Tag with the same ticket to re-enter or visit another Park. Ticket Tag does not store fingerprints.

    If you don't want to use Ticket Tag, you can simply carry and show a photo ID that matches the name identified with your ticket."

    So yes, with MagicBands you still place your finger on a reader to enter the parks. My children actually love doing it, because they feel like secret agents à la Perry the Platypus.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a magical vacation!
