    9to5 Mac writes that the happiest place on earth just got a little bit happier, with the news that Disney is giving its theme park workers (or “cast membersâ€, as Disney likes to call them) iPads to help them handle guest relations. The information comes from the Disney Projects Twitter page, which has been detailing the ways in which Disney employees are using iPads in the Magic Kingdom, including the classic tweet: “Seeing a Haunted Mansion cast member with an iPad is a bit… strange.â€

    9to5 Mac writes that the iPad will be the “centerpiece†for Disney’s new version of its “FastPass†system, which is the system that enables park attendees to get passes for popular attractions so that they can be fast-tracked to the front of the line. The new system, which cast members have started training on today, uses RFID technology in conjunction with the iPad to read information from scanned passes. For the next few weeks, certain selected visitors will be helping Disney out testing the new system, by booking a seat on popular rides before they reach the parks, then when they get to their chosen ride at the booked time, waving their RFID band at a sensor to automatically send their booking information to a cast member carrying an iPad, who can then read it. How and when the new system will become officially operational depends on how well the pilot program goes over the next few weeks.

    That is such a difficult question! I think I'd be one of the cats from the Aristocats!
