Disney recently received a patent for software described as “Sensing and Managing Vehicle Behaviour Based on Occupant Awareness.”  The patent alludes to a system with the ability to combine facial recognition with established preferences (stored on a device containing guests’ data from rider profiles and questionnaires completed before visiting theme park attractions) and customize the experience of the attraction to the rider (for example using different ride paths for different audience profiles as shown above). The ride can become more exciting for guests seen to find the experience boring or more “tame” for guests susceptible to motion sickness.

It remains to be seen whether the technology within this patent will be used but it does sound an exciting prospect offering a customized experience to all users (e.g. children to thrill-seeking adults).
