Children in Orlando, Florida as young as three may get a little Disney magic right at the entrance to the park, as they will now be required to have their fingers scanned, local media reports. The anti-fraud measure has been slammed as a violation of privacy on social media.

“Walt Disney World has begun requiring children from 3 to 9 years old to have their fingers scanned when they enter the theme parks, just like older kids and adults,” the Orlando Sentinel, the first to report on the measure, said.

According to the paper, this measure was introduced in order to “block the use of stolen and shared tickets.”

The kids, however, may have some loopholes to avoid scanning. For example, parents who do not want their children’s fingers scanned can use their own instead.

“The policy is meant to ensure seamless entry for guests while also protecting guests from someone else using their tickets,” the paper wrote, quoting the spokeswoman.
