Metal Detectors Greet Disney Visitors

The place where dreams come true now includes metal detectors.

A Disney spokesperson said they were installed today at both Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California to increase security for the holiday season. Also effective today, Disney will no longer sell toy guns inside their parks or allow anyone over the age of 14 to wear a costume, including on Halloween. The same goes for SeaWorld's 11 theme parks.

In a statement, a Disney spokesperson said “We continually review our comprehensive approach to security and are implementing additional security measures, as appropriate.”

According to the Times, Disney won't require everyone to walk through the metal detectors, but will use a random selection process.

According to an attendance report released in June of this past year, Disney World's Magic Kingdom is the most visited theme park in the world averaging almost 53,000 guests per day.
