Plenty of people are wondering whether they should or should not go ahead with their Disney vacation especially as post-secondary institutions and large gatherings around the country are closing amid Coronavirus concerns.

The decision is ultimately yours to make, but if you do decide to make the trip, you should avoid touching surfaces that many other people have touched. Admittedly, this can be difficult especially in a place where so many people visit regularly.

One easy way to protect yourself and avoid touching things is to not scan your finger.

That’s right! When you enter the park and scan your MagicBand, you are also asked to scan your finger, but did you know that this is not required?

Nearly every single person that enters the park touches this spot, so it can be a very germy surface!

If you’d like to avoid touching the fingerprint scanner, all you need to do is take a photo identification that matches the name on your ticket. To inform Disney of your decision and make your entry as smooth as possible, visit Guest Relations at Disney Springs or any theme park.

Will you opt-out of Disney fingerprint scanning?
