The free wi-fi roll out continues as it appears Disney has now begun to activate guest wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) at the All-Star Resorts.
This is really good news for Guests, who up until now had to pay for wired internet access.
it's that kind of thing they need to do i think, i still have my Pal Mickey and loved the idea but i could never hear it. I don't think it took off in a big way because of this and the cost implications. People have spent a lot of money on the holiday and then it's $50 each.

Pal Mickey was a great idea that upon execution was terrible. You had to lug that thing, and it couldn't get wet! Try that trick in the summer. Plus, as Brit says, it couldn't be heard. Also, it wasn't always in sequence. The one we tried kept telling us about things AFTER the fact. So it needed a lot of work... too bad Disney didn't work to improve it.
With regard to improving things in the park. Couldn't agree more. There are loads of ways Disney can enhance the park experience. For example, during the food and wine festival, you could scan a barcoded picture (I forget what they are exactly called) and download all sorts of info on the festival. The map, the location of the booths, etc. It was a great help!
They could use that technology to assist guests in many ways. Might potentially reduce costs as guests (some, not all of course) would be able to better find their way around without using CM time (that would be better spent returning to cleaning the park! What happened there, eh).
