Disney World (Orlando, FL) Complaint - Unrightful Collection of Personal Information
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- I visited Disney World Magic Kingdom yesterday[2/21/10] and I was appalled to see that they require the collection of finger prints!! I adamentally refused to allow my 3yr old son to be scanned. At first the ticket lady wouldn't let us through and I seriously considered leaving then and there. But after much venting of frustation on my behalf she agreed to let him through because he "can't reach the scanner anyways". So my question that I pose to you today is why on earth would the Disney Corporation like to fingerprint a child? For what purpose is this unrightful collection of data? They claim that it is for the sole purpose of keeping someone from stealing your ticket but I don't believe. Furthermore, upon questioning aforementioned ticket lady about what is done with such data and whether it wa stored in a database of some sort or what exactly was done with it she responded, "No, it is just used to get in". So, let me say this, how can the info be used at a later date if it is not stored on at least one database?!?!? And so I shall have to say that unless I see a legitamite purpose for my child to be fingerprint, then I, as not only a parent but also as an American Citizen, refuse to allow this to happen!!!
