Disney has come out with RFID bands that would enable the Disney staff to know your child’s name as they wander around the park.
The MyMagic+ system is designed to track users’ purchasing habits, and if parents agree to certain settings, employees playing characters in the park can use hidden sensors to track children and their information; so Goofy can walk up to a child and say something like, “Hi Bobby. Happy birthday.”
My brain is going two ways on this, both related to Stranger-Danger.
It could be good, in that you can differentiate between real Disney staff and those people who just like cos-playing as Belle when they go to Disney World. (DON’T JUDGE ME! …okay, I haven’t done that. Yet.)
But depending on hack-able the RFID is, I’d be worried about random people knowing my (imaginary) child’s name. A child might think someone isn’t a stranger because they know their name.
But either way, if Disney’s Belle knew my name as a child, I’d be really confused because I hadn’t met her before.
