A recent article in the Orlando Sentinel suggest the Florida theme parks in the Orlando area are changing the way visitors interact with its many attractions. While "the rides" are a big draw, other attractions create a need for interaction.
While Walt Disney World's Fantasyland expansion and Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter will both be anchored by big new rides, some of the secondary attractions could prove every bit as important to the future of the resorts.
Elaborate sets where guests can dance with princesses and a wand shop where the souvenir wands choose their buyers mark the latest efforts by Disney and Universal to make their parks more interactive with visitors. They are also among the earliest attempts to extend that interactivity beyond traditional rides and shows and into every corner of the sprawling resorts.
"Interactivity" has become a big buzz word in the amusement industry in recent years.
