A little mouse told me that there are going to be a some changes to how we enter the Disney World theme parks in the coming months.

As you can see in the photo above Disney Security personnel were training on new metal detectors in the Magic Kingdom. Like Universal Studios ALL guests will have to go through the new metal detectors in the coming months.

To alleviate long lines Disney is going to be installing metal detectors at the Transportation and Ticket Center for guests coming from other parks, who used Disney Parking, or for those staying in a non Disney hotel. You will go through the metal detectors before you get on the Express Monorail or take the Ferry to the Magic Kingdom.

Also we have heard that Disney will be installing luggage scanners at the Disney World Resorts but that might take a little longer than the theme parks. Guest would send their luggage through scanners before they can begin the check in process.

When we were in Disneyland Paris earlier this year they already do this and it took no time to get into the resort with our luggage.

Are you glad to see Disney working on adding extra security to the resorts and theme parks?

  1. It takes so long to get into the Magic Kingdom now, this is going to make it even worse. But i guess better safe than sorry!
