Hong Kong Disneyland gets finger scanning at gate

Hong Kong Disneyland joins it’s state-side cousin’s with new fingerprint scanning devices required for admission on multi-day tickets.

"But it’s different from fingerprint
identification," Coker explained, adding that annual-pass holders need
not worry about their personal data being leaked if their passes are
lost or stolen. A ticketing tag system will be installed in existing
ticketing machines to identify each holder after his or her index
finger has been scanned, but it does not contain sufficient information
to recreate a fingerprint image, Coker said.

Guests are also given the option of showing ID (although that may not be indicated by signage. It’s not at the US parks).  (Read)
