It appears that there are more changes set to come to Disney’s Magic Kingdom as they try to create a better flow for guests as they enter the park by moving the security checkpoints.
According to the rumoured plans, guests will be screened at various points away from the park, allowing them to simply walk up to the touch points and enter the park without having to wait in long lines.
Guests parking at the Transportation and Ticket Centre will go through the security bag check and metal detectors once they leave the trams and before they board the ferryboat or monorail to the park.
This will also mean adding security checkpoints at the monorail platforms for Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. There will also be a checkpoint added at the walkway between the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom for those that would like to walk to the park from this hotel (this is already being tested during certain days).
For those that are staying at other on-site Disney resorts, you’ll be screened just before you enter the park at new checkpoints by the bus drop off points.
There has been no official statement from Disney on this, but we’re hoping to hear something from them soon.
Is this going to create more problems or is it just moving congestion to another point? My thought would be that it’s just moving congestion from one area to another, however, it’s going to make things a lot more ‘magical’ for guests entering the park.
