Disney, SeaWorld And Universal Start Metal Detector Checks

Disney and other Orlando area theme parks beefed up security- including added screening at the entrance

Disney and other Orlando area theme parks beefed up security this week- including additional screening at the entrance

Starting Thursday morning visitors to the happiest place on earth—Walt Disney World–have to go through metal detectors. SeaWorld and Universal now have them as well. This comes on the heels of recent terror attacks in Paris and California.

In a statement, Disney says it has increased law enforcement and dog patrols. Guests are also being randomly picked for metal detector screening. The theme park is no longer selling toy guns at its parks. People 14 years old and older can no longer wear costumes to Disney.

Disney said it’s adding these measures given the current state of heightened awareness.

SeaWorld and Universal have followed suit, also adding metal detectors. Universal says this is a test and that it’s studying the best security practices for today’s world.
