Walt Disney World in Florida will enable customers to bypass entry turnstiles and use rubber bracelets encoded with credit card data to enter the park and buy items. Customers could also be alerted by smartphone when rides are available without having to stand in line.

The technology will also allow Disney to track guest behavior, but it also allows guests to control how much information they share.
