Disney working on Wireless Info while in Disneyworld

I've always been fascinated with Disney. Especially the way they employ technology to increase the guest experience. I stumbled across another great Disney idea a few days ago and I'd like to share it with you.

It seems that Disney is working on a wireless information system called "Disney Magic Connection" that will interface with the wireless capabilities of the Nintendo DS. In order to provide for a better time in the park it will provide you with your location on an interactive map, reminders of show times, reminders of parade times, locations of the nearest costumed characters, what rides have the shortest lines/wait times, games to play while you are waiting, what rides are accepting Fast Pass, and you can even make reservations at a Disney restaurant all from the Nintendo DS.

No word on full deployment yet, but you can bet they are working to make this happen soon.
