Security Heightened at Walt Disney World Theme Parks

security heightened at Disney theme parksThis morning, the entire country heard news of a devastating and senseless tragedy which took the lives of at least 50 people in the city of Orlando. Many more have been injured.

As a result, the security measures at all Walt Disney World theme parks has been increased. Metal detectors which were just brought into use recently, are now being used to screen every person that enters the park. This goes for those without bags as well. (in the past, they could bypass the normal security screening)

It has been reported that the lines are long, but safety is paramount at Disney World. There is no word on whether these increased screenings will continue.
