Disney is building its own Metaverse
Introducing virtual worlds to its parks
Last year, Disney revealed its plans to build its own metaverse, and they’re quickly making it a reality.
Disney got granted a patent on December 28th to develop a ‘Virtual World Simulator,’ which will create a realistic 3D virtual world, where park guests can be fully immersed in the Disney universe and interact with their favourite characters.
Unlike any other experience created in the past, Disney’s virtual worlds will be solely in the real world, meaning guests won't be required to wear 3D glasses, AR headsets, or look through their phone screens.
In a statement from the company’s CEO, Bob Chapek explained, “Our efforts to date are merely a prologue to a time when we’ll be able to connect the physical and digital worlds even more closely, allowing for storytelling without boundaries in our own Disney metaverse, and we look forward to creating unparalleled opportunities for consumers to experience everything Disney has to offer across our products and platforms, wherever the consumer may be.”
