This is in order to offer a unique experience to park customers who will be able to test personalized interactive attractions based on augmented reality. And as part of this project, the group has recruited many specialists, including the executive Mike White to the position of senior vice-president of the Net Generation Storytelling and Consumer Experiences division so that he ” leads Disney’s efforts in the Metaverse. » In this context, one suspects that the recruited lawyer will have a lot of work ahead of him.
