Disney has recently been trying out a new sort of a “park guide” in the form of a modified Nintendo DS system. The system displays park information about attractions and tracks your movement through the park via GPS. Several guests have been asked to try the new system, and tests will continue for a few more days. Full implementation or wide availability of the system for use by guests may occur in the future, but at the moment no further information is available.
The Kim Possible scavenger hunt game at Epcot used similar technology and was tested last year, but only recently was the infrastructure to make it a permanent offering beginning installation. We expect this new offering to follow this pattern of trials and eventual implementation in the distant future.
