Disney World has begun testing a new security scanning system ahead of the theme parks reopening next month. Testing is currently taking place in the Lime Garage at Disney Springs at the entrance to the escalator.
The new process is a scanner guests walk through that can detect firearms, IEDs, and other threats. This system is contactless which is important as Disney navigates post COVID-19 procedures.
Instagram user muggleonmainstreet shared some photos of this new system:
The system manufacturer, Evolv Express, boasts that “It is the fastest weapons-screening system on the market, consistently screening 60 people every minute for firearms and other threats. That’s 3,600 people per hour, or 10X faster than a traditional checkpoint system.”
