Speaking at the JP Morgan Global Technology Conference, Disney CEO Bob Chapek talked a little bit about some of the technology that has helped the Disney Parks operate safely during the pandemic. In particular, he spoke about two technologies – the Disney Park Pass theme park reservation system and virtual queues.
Of course, virtual queues were in place before the pandemic with the debut of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in December 2019. With today’s announcement that WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure would be utilizing a similar system, it’s easy to see how virtual queues would be utilized going forward.
Perhaps most interesting is that Chapek reiterated that the Disney Park Pass reservation system would be used even in a post-pandemic environment as a means of managing demand and ticket pricing.
At this point, it should come as no surprise that Disney sees long-term value in the Disney Park Pass reservation system after Josh D’Amaro listed it as a technology that was “here to stay” all the way back in August 2020.
