Universal Florida's ET ride uses your name to say "goodbye," or so my wife says. I didn't hear it.

"Customize their experience" = obnoxious targeted marketing.

LAMPPOST: "I'm sure ASHLEY would love a ice-cold Coke about now!"

TABLE NAPKIN DISPENSER: "Wasn't that meal great, BOB AND MARIE? How about a special dessert from your good friends at Monsanto Confections?"

PILLOW IN CONTEMPORARY RESORT: "ashley . . . oh, ash-leeeee! when you wake up tomorrow, ask mommy to buy you some t-shirts."
