Question regarding Security

Hi! My family and I have a trip planned in a couple of weeks and we were wondering if any of you know or have heard if the security for entering the DL parks has changed? The reason I ask, is because we heard on the news that due to the unfortunate bombings that have occurred recently, the TSA may be called out to theme parks (as well as malls and sporting events) and we were just wondering if this has been implemented yet.

Thank you in advance for the information ... Have a great day!

We were at the Disneyland the Monday of the booming,. and when we went back and forth no extra security was in place.. Even at the airport the next day, we had no security hold ups...

Not to say that they haven't increased it now.. but while we were there it was as normal.. bags and strollers checked and through the gates.. in less than 5 minutes..

Great, thank you for the information. I was starting to prepare myself to have to explain to my 2 little girls about the TSA security pat downs / checks.

Again, I appreciate both of your responses!

The thing is, the normal bag check and level of security at the Disney parks, in my opinion, would have caught the situation before it happened. Pressure cooker in a backpack would be caught by the simplest of bag checks, and an abandoned bag is noticed immediately at Disney.

I can't imagine the Transportation Security Administration having the resources or authority to check bags at an amusement park. I could see Disney increasing security.

We were also there when the bombing happened, and the only thing I noticed different was the bomb/drug dogs in the park. We hasn't been in a few years so not sure if that kana regular thing.

We have been here (DL) all week, and the bag check process is the same as it has been on the past.

TSA at Disneyland (or any other venues) would be very unfortunate.

Seriously disney security is a joke. Anyone who wants to get something by them can do it easy and anyone who thinks they are safe because of the checkpoints is mistaken

Uggg. It just occurred to me with our upcoming trip, I'll need to briefly explain this to my kids. One trip to Disneyland and then one trip before then for our youngest daughter and my husband.

I was stopped for trying to bring in a Starbucks Frappuccino in a glass bottle. It could have been a dangerous situation had I not thrown that away.
