New Security Checkpoints Provide a Better Flow Into Magic Kingdom

If you have visited the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, in the recent past, then you know the challenges everyone faced with getting through the Security Checkpoints to the right and left of the entrance.  When you visit today, you will find something quite different.  The new Security Checkpoints are now providing a better flow of traffic into the Magic Kingdom.

If you are walking to the Magic Kingdom from The Contemporary Resort, your Security Checkpoint will be along The Contemporary Resort Walkway.

Traveling from the Polynesian Village Resort, and The Grand Floridian, by monorail?  Your Security Checkpoint will be just prior to boarding the Resort Monorail.  If you are traveling by Monorail from The Contemporary, your Security Checkpoint will be prior to going up the escalator to the hop aboard the Resort Monorail.

When you travel by Resort Boat, from Fort Wilderness, Wilderness Lodge, Polynesian Village Resort, The Grand Floridian and The Contemporary you will have your Security Checkpoint along the dock as you disembark from your boat.

When you arrive by Resort Bus, or Disney Bus Transportation, you will pass through a Security Checkpoint prior to entering the Main Entrance to The Magic Kingdom.

Certainly the location that sees the most foot traffic is the Transportation and Ticket Center.  If you arrive from the Magic Kingdom Parking Lot via a Tram, or just by walking, you must go through the Security Checkpoint before heading to the Express Monorail or the Ferryboats.  When traveling from Epcot, aboard the Monorail, your Security Checkpoint is at the entrance to Epcot.

For now the former Security Checkpoints appear abandoned, and almost ghostly, as a reminder of days past.  Later in the day, these checkpoints have been reduced to serving as shade structures for Magic Kingdom guests looking to take a break from the Central Florida Sunshine.

Many were skeptical about the pending changes to the Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom security.  We at Chip and Company have seen the positive impact, and the improvement to the safety and security of guests visiting the Walt Disney World’s most visited park.  The new Security Checkpoints are proving to be very effective at providing a better flow into the Magic Kingdom.

  1. We just visited last week and used the security checkpoints at the bus drop off. It was fantastic! Separating the checkpoints make the lines so much shorter and bearable for everyone (including the security personnel I talked to).

  2. We were there this week and definitely felt the change in security was an improvement. It went very smoothly at the Ticket and Transportation Center. I loved that once we arrived at the gates of the Magic Kingdom, when we’re so excited to finally be there, all we had to do was walk up and scan our Magic Bands and we were in!!!
