Disney to add vehicle locator feature to park apps

It’s late at night and the fireworks over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland have ended. You weave your way through the crowds onto the tram, where you sit slightly sunburnt and wind down from the sugar rush provided by that extra churro.

You step off the tram and are greeted by a sea of ​​cars in an endless parking lot or a cavernous garage when it hits you: you’ve forgotten where you parked.

A new feature set to roll out in the Disneyland and Walt Disney World apps aims to help guests avoid those stress-inducing moments by providing the exact location of their vehicle, Walt Disney Co. said in a press release this week.

The Auto Locator feature uses cell phone location services to mark where guests have parked their cars, or guests can enter their parking information directly.

Park visitors can still deny the app access to their phone’s location services.

At the end of the day, assuming guests haven’t drained their phone batteries in the park, they can open the app and head straight to their cars without a few wasted detours.

The auto finder will launch at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. this summer and at Disneyland Resort later this year, the company said.

In recent years, theme parks have tended to use technology — including digital tickets and app location tracking — to manage crowds, speed up cashless purchases and reduce wait times at the most popular rides, prompting warnings of large-scale data collection from privacy advocates.
