So what’s on the horizon?
“Looking ahead, there are many exciting TouringPlans projects in development. Optimal turn-by-turn walking directions inside the parks using GPS is the next big thing we’re working on. With that, we’ll be able to tell you step by step how to get from one place in the park to another, in the shortest amount of time. We’re also working on a prototype for walking directions that uses augmented reality (AR) to guide you on your route. Imagine giant Mickey Mouse gloves floating in space along the walkway in Tomorrowland, pointing out the path to follow to your destination. Once we get the GPS and point-to-point walking directions done, this would be the next step. And beyond that, we think there’s a lot of ways AR can help guests in the parks”.
