Downtown Disney security changes

Disneyland visitors will find some changes in how they get through security on their way to the theme park.

Resort guests will now be screened as they walk into Downtown Disney shopping district, just west of the theme parks.

Park-goers will also be screened after they leave the Mickey & Friends parking structure to board the trams to the theme parks.

Disney says the changes were made in order to secure a larger area and to keep visitors from having to go through bag checks and metal detectors multiple times.
