News out of Orlando today, SeaWorld and Universal Studios are following Disney with adding metal detectors at the entrances of their theme parks. SeaWorld has already started this at the beginning of the Holiday season and Universal Orlando is testing the metal detectors out now.  We do not know how long either park will use the metal detectors or they will be a permanent fixtures.  We all know as time goes on attractions and big theme parks need to heighten security due to the rise in terror threats and extremist attacks.

On Wednesday, the federal Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin saying it was “especially concerned that terrorist-inspired individuals and homegrown violent extremists may be encouraged or inspired to target public events or places.”

I know this will hold up lines and make our wait longer but it is worth it. I appreciate they take safety and security seriously. Please do not take your frustration out on the CM’s they are just doing their jobs.
