Disney Testing GPS Based Nintendo Interactive Maps
Disney is working again with a GPS based system for use in their parks, this time using a Nintendo DS game console. Recall they were using specially programmed mobile phones for a Kim Possible location based game last year. The idea is that you can use the DS as an interactive map that is location aware; not positive if it actually has GPS capabilities, but it certainly pinpoints your whereabouts. Once you have the map and your location you can also tap into a whole lot of information:
You can click on the individual lands in the park and see instantly all the wait times. Let's use Liberty Square as an example. When you click on Liberty Square it will bring the land into full view. You can click on the Haunted Mansion and instantly see that it's wait time is twenty minutes. Click on the Liberty Tree Tavern and you can get a summary of their menu. From Around WDW News
Hummmm, so if they can tell you the menu do they tell you the outrageous prices on the menu too?
