118. Perhaps to match the finger prints to the ticket
So if they park hop or leave the park a different person doesn't enter on the same ticket. They stamp people hands leaving anyway. I don't see how pervasive the problem could be that it would require this technology. I think it may have already been in place to monitor season pass holders so I guess they just expanded the practice.

I'll have to ask my Disney employeed friends.
