(NEWS4JAX) — ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - In an effort to combat fraud, children between the ages of 3 and 9 should now be prepared to have their fingers scanned when they enter the Walt Disney World theme parks.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the new requirement is in place to help block the use of stolen and shared tickets. Older children and adult visitors have already been having their fingers scanned for years.
