Visitors to Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom are going to be welcomed with a very noticeable change to the park’s security setup starting today. Disney has moved the large bottleneck security checkpoint from the park’s immediate entrance to a number of smaller checkpoints further out to the resort monorail entrances, bus drop-off area and the TTC.

Making this change moves the monorail, ferry and a larger chunk of the resort area around the Magic Kingdom into a checked, protected zone. It also, presumably, is being done to remove a large gathering of unchecked visitors from the entrance, which makes entering the park more enjoyable, and also eliminates an obvious soft target for trouble-makers.

Our friends over at The Disney Blog give a thorough and easily understandable rundown of the new Magic Kingdom security setup. If you are planning on a Disney World visit in the future, you will want to read this. It is going to be pretty different from what we are used to.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
