    Exclamation On-Ride Video Debuts at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Effective August 12, 2014; The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios will offer On-Ride Video for Guests with an active Memory Maker package and Magic Band.

    Guests who experience the attraction with a Magic Band and a linked Memory Maker package will automatically receive the on-ride video of their experience within 24 hour via their My Disney Experience account.

    It is expected that similar offerings will be rolled-out to a few other popular attractions over the next several months.

    Oh dear no! I hate to think of being in stranger's pictures let alone videos. ACK! We might be one of few families who would rather not relive the experience by looking at ourselves. And I live in dread of being that woman that people are laughing at in videos at home. "Look at that lady in the corner! She's scared to death! Hilarious!" Not.

    I kind of feel the same way you do, Sherri. We didn't even video our wedding, so the last thing I want to do is see myself in attraction video from vacation. It's just not our thing.

    I hadn't even thought about the stranger in the video aspect. I mean, that kind of stuff could go viral if folks post on social media.

    Is it the whole car?

    For Rip Ride Rock It at Universal, the video is focused only on the one rider.

    if they had this for more than 1 ride I would totally get this for next week, love the idea. I wasn't a big user of the photopass program before, but if I could get several ride along videos that would be cool. On our last trip I loved getting the attractions+ card, so if they paired that alone up with the ride along videos I'd be all in.

    It looks like from the video posted on the front page, at least how it's presented there, that it is the whole car.

    More attractions are coming according to Jason's first post.

    I'm not too keen on the idea. EEK.

    I don't think I like this idea. What's the legality of videoing minors and making it public? What if someone in our car posts a video of my child getting sick or something and it goes viral without our permission?

    You're at Walt Disney World. You're being videotaped or photographed at some point *everywhere*. If you read Disney's "theme-park-legal" policy, it basically says that you permit photographing and/or videoing while you're visiting the parks.

    I get that, I really do. I'm not normally paranoid about this sort of thing, but for some reason this really rubs me the wrong way. Can't put a finger on why it makes me feel uncomfortable. I guess it's the unknown of who could be watching these ride videos, but I guess that could apply to anything.

    I understand this as well, and I'm not going to be upset about it. But the fact that the videos will now be in the hands of any average guest, vs in a more controlled environment, does raise some discomfort. Mostly it's just going to be people enjoying their own reactions at home, fine, not a problem. And great for those people who will enjoy this. But we do live in an age of oversharing.

    If it keeps some people from whipping out their camcorders and trying to record their ride experience I'm all for it. Can't tell you the number of times I've had someone turn on a light or try to take a picture spoiling the experience for everyone else. So if they can get memory maker then everyone can be happy. Besides I think I might want a video or 2.

    Yes it's the whole car. Mine was done yesterday. It's really only a small clip of the people in elevator. The rest is graphics of the attraction. I thought the part with us was just too short. Blink and you miss it. They only show that second before you drop.

    I saw the video posted by another group on twitter. Seems like the car scene is short. You can likely find yourself but there is not a lot of time spent in the car. Now that could change…if customer feedback gets to Disney. Course…IF they are only recording the cars HANGING part…well that only happens once or so during the ride. So capturing video is a short window of opportunity IMO as it is.

    I like the full video they did with the canned effects and footage and sound. It’s a nice presentation for sure.

    I’m sure we’ve all waved most our rights as we enter the parks anyway. I’m not put out by this. In fact the abuse of technology I like. I’ve not received one of those e-mails JY mentions in PC66 where as they got notified of MORE pics of his family that were taken that they didn't know about. To me I like that…and I’d likely buy more once I’m home since we try and extend the MAGIC once back to reality. Least DW and I do… It'd be a nice surprise...WOW they got me on that ride??? KEWL!!!

    Far as them tracking me in the parks…OK. I’ve no issues. AGAIN I chose to be there. As long as no bodily harm come to me and my family I’m all good. AND I highly doubt Disney would let that happen.

    ALSO on a side note…I’ve no issues with showing ID when asked. It it protects my identity from theft I'm all good! It does bother me that I need to show and use my Disney VISA card for every purchase to get the discount. Can’t have that linked to my band and get the discount if purchases are over $50. You still need to use the actual card and make your purchase over $50. Why not let me just tie my card to my band…accumulate my purchases over my length of stay…and THEN get my discount on the full purchase amount I spent while on vacation? Com’on Disney – get with Disney VISA and work this out. AND get the DCL on board with this too!!! You’ll all flying the SAME flag colors and icon…work with me people!!!

    Sorry to jack the thread…
    Best Regards,
    GMRO

    While I like the idea on one hand, I dislike the idea on another. The selling of ride photos is ubiquitous, so the video is just a natural expansion. However, the technology has never been too good about limiting the image to the actual guest buying the photo. I know that, in legal terms, you're giving them permission to sell your image by entering the park, but I wish they offered some way to opt-out. Now with the magic bands, your opt-out status could easily be tracked and handled on the back end. Replace the opt-outs with Disney characters.

    I always thought when I got off splash mtn that it would be cool if they could superimposed a character over other people in my boat. I would think this wouldn't be to complicated to do, especially now with a magicband pinpointing my exact location on the log.
