We’ve all been stuck waiting in line to enter a theme park behind that guy who just can’t seem to figure out how a turnstile works. We think, “Why did I get in this line?” while all the others seem to move so much faster. Today Disney is showing off a new park entry system that they hope will eliminate this frustration and generally make the experience of entering their theme parks a little bit easier and speedier.

In recent days, Disney began testing a barcode scanning system at the main entrance of Epcot allowing guests to enter the park without passing through any spinning turnstiles or inserting their tickets into a machine. Instead, tickets in the new system were quickly scanned and guests could continue inside the park. It’s an enhancement that’s especially useful for families with strollers or wheelchairs.
