Disney now finger scanning kids as young 3 to prevent ticket fraud

(FoxNews.com) - In an effort to combat ticket fraud, Walt Disney World has quietly implemented a new finger scanning policy at the entrances to its Orlando theme parks.

Now, children between the ages of 3 and 9 should be prepared to have his or her finger scanned electronically before entering the park property.

A spokeswoman for Disney confirmed to FoxNews.com that the new scanning policy was quietly rolled out in late August but the biometric scanning system has been in place for about 10 years.

“The process helps prevent ticket fraud,” the spokeswoman said but added that “parents of younger children who do not feel comfortable can use their own [finger scan] to match the ticket instead.”
