Disney Increases Park Security after Orlando Shooting

The Walt Disney Company is heightening security at its theme parks in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando, the home of Walt Disney World.

Disney says it has added K-9 units and extra law enforcement officers, along with less visible systems that employ state-of-the-art security technologies.

This is in wake of multiple reports that the shooter, Omar Mateen, scouted Walt Disney World as a potential target.

Guests’ bags will be searched and some will be selected for checks with a metal detector.

Disney installed metal detectors outside its Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom parks last year.

I am a lifelong fan of everything Disney. My first trip to a a Disney park was to Disneyland as a child in 1970, but didn't make to Walt Disney World until I went with my wife and first child in 1990. A year doesn't go by with out at least one trip to either Disneyland or Walt Disney World. My wife and I are Disney Vacation Club members and also Charter Members of D23.
