OT i thought that WDW was designated a no-fly zone: true or false?

As for security being assigned to high profile guests (political or pop culture icons); it makes sense imo. I'd rather have the situation controled vs mass descent of star-struck tourists adding to the mix.
The no fly zone was in effect shortly after 9-11, it has been changed to a certain height now.

There is definitely backstage security at Disney and always near the bag check point areas.

thanks, was wondering since we've observed small aircraft in the area. I'm willing to bet they employ many plain clothes personnel too.

Jousey - based upon having law enforcement in the family, police have more rules & regs they have to follow vs security forces (unless licensed to carry leathal weapons). All-around it sure seems to me to be a rather thankless job to protect fools from themselves (not to mention the safety of innocent but gawking bystanders) and then have to worry about being sued if they don't cross their t's and dot their i's just so

Plain clothes security used to be the norm, but some security firms/analysts promote visible security as more of a deterrent now. I wonder if Disney is adopting this strategy.

I know that security has been hightened in many public areas around the country since before the election. It might taper off after the holidays.

Possible threat, Monorail was searched last week by a security dog.
if you see a dog searching, that doesn't mean there's a current threat. In DC they do dog searches on the Metro once in awhile just as drills.

When I first noticed uniformed guards at Disney a bunch of years back, I asked why. I was told that they had done surveys and guests felt safer with a uniformed presence. The invisible security was still in place (in fact there are probably more of them) but at key places there are uniformed guards.

It was also at the same time guards were put at the entrance to each resort to get into the parking.

Just because it worked for me or worked this way in the past or is part of the great Dis lore is no reason it will work this way in the future. Depending on the CM you get, new interpretation of the rules, changes in rules, weather over the Himalayas, your results may be different.
