“They want to turn a real-world venue into a virtual world simulation,” said John DeStefano, a patent and technology technical adviser at Founders Legal. The Atlanta-based corporate law firm specializes in intellectual property and represents advanced technology companies.
Founders Legal is not representing Disney in the patent.
DeStefano and patent attorney Yuri Eliezer studied the recently approved Disney patent.
Disney officials did not return a Spectrum News request for comment as of press time.
Eliezer said Disney’s new patent puts the company one step into creating its own metaverse.
“A lot of companies are heading into the metaverse,” said Eliezer, a partner and patent attorney at Founders Legal. “There’s a growing ecosystem and land grab of patents.
Disney virtual world simulators
Everyone is trying to get their own piece of this metaverse.”
It is no surprise that Disney has joined the ranks of Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, among many other technology companies, to jump on the so-called metaverse.
The metaverse is defined as a digital ecosystem designed to simulate our real-life environment, said Yuri Eliezer, a partner and patent attorney at Founders Legal.
“It’s not just graphical representation of the world in a virtual environment but the ability to interact and exchange digital assets in a virtual environment,” said Eliezer.
The coronavirus pandemic accelerated the use of this technology. Disney filed for the patent in July 2020.
With most people working from home and telecommuting, “we are now more virtually connected than we were ever before,” Eliezer said, adding that we can still be productive when virtual.

For example, when browsing a princess dress shop window, the technology could project a Disney Princess to interact with the window-shopper. Additionally, Disney Virtual World Simulator could be used to make long queues less boring by allowing people to interact with beloved characters.
The technology is designed to allow more personalised experiences in the theme park via user tracking.
This means that the tech can “a moving perspective of one of a user in the real-world venue or a camera in the real-world venue” and correct in real-time.

The future of Disneyland
The Disney Virtual World Simulator offers just one aspect of the future of Disneyland.
” Now we are creating a virtual ecosystem to live, work and play,” Eliezer said.
Disney is no stranger to incorporating new technology into its theme parks. One of Walt Disney’s most famous lines is Disneyland would never be completed as long as there is imagination in the world.
Disney, which created the first Audio-Animatronics in the 1960s, and trackless rides, has more than 300 patents.
At Disneyland, one of their former nightly fireworks shows featured projection mapping technology.
As fireworks went off above, Disney projected animated images on the surface of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, buildings along Main Street, U.S.A., and even it’s a small world.
Disney modified and adapted its parks technologically during the pandemic by adding mobile orders and a new enhanced day planner using artificial intelligence called Disney Genie.
However, Disney has other plans, and the firm is looking to build a “virtual-world simulator in a real-world venue.”
This means that the Disney theme park Metaverse will include real-world features as well as AR features. How they plan to pull it off is yet to be revealed.
“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,” said CEO Bob Chapek at the fourth-quarter earnings call.
However, Disney plans to tell various stories through the simulator, but officials told The LA Times that the firm has “no current plans” to use the simulator.

Company has patented a “virtual world” simulator that could be used on future theme park attractions, Orange County Register reports.
The technology, which Disney calls “virtual world” instead of virtual reality or augmented reality, would allow multiple guests to experience a 3D virtual world from multiple vantage points without a VR headset or other device. It would create 3D imagery using multiple projectors.
The simulator uses a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technique that tracks the changing point of view of a guest to continue changing the 3D image.
The patent states that the virtual world simulator could project animated characters, objects, props, or artwork into real-world locations.
Founders Legal patent and technology technical advisor John DeStefano told Spectrum News that Disney wants to introduce virtual simulations into Disney Parks.
