Submission + - Disney now collecting finger prints

cvd6262 writes: A while ago, it was reported here on Slashdot that Disney World was using fingerprint scanners to record the "shape" of visitors fingers. Now, they've expanded the system to record the prints (instead of just the shape), though they deny it.
"We are not collecting fingerprints," Disney representative Kim Prunty said. [...] "The system takes an image, it identifies points on that image and measures the distance between those points and immediately creates a numerical value on the blink of an eye," Prunty said. "And it's the numerical value that's stored in our system and recalled when a guest reenters our turn styles using their Magic Your Way tickets."
Sounds like capturing fingerprints to me.
