It offers the next step in Disney’s huge technology push like being able to open hotel room doors with your phone and even the much maligned testing of automatic PhotoPass cameras replacing human photographers.
I want to know what you think about Disney adding Google Home Smart Speakers to the hotel rooms in the Yacht Club…
- Do you think it’s a good idea?
