What’s The Real Reason Why Disney Parks Take Your Fingerprint? And What Do They Do With It?

Disneyland and Walt Disney World have been using biometrics as part of their entry system into the parks since 2013. Biometrics is defined as, “…the technical term for body measurements and calculations. It refers to metrics related to human characteristics. Biometrics authentication is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control.” (thank-you, Wikipedia).

/ˈintrəˌvərt/
noun: Introvert comes from Latin intro-, “inward,” and vertere, “turning.” An introvert generally prefers solitary activities to interacting with large groups of people. If you would rather work through your feelings in your diary than have a conversation, then you are an introvert.

I will be the first to admit that I’m an introvert. As early as my mid-teen years, I was labeled a “snob” by the mother of a friend of mine, because I barely talked to her when I was at their house. But nope, I wasn’t a snob…I was just uncomfortable in making small talk with someone I barely knew.
