DISNEY WORLD and DISNEYLAND installs metal detectors, bans costumes, toy guns due to credible threat...
In a sign of how jittery the nation has become about terrorism and gun violence, Orlando's major theme parks on Thursday added metal detectors as a security precaution.
Walt Disney World placed walk-through metal detectors in front of its theme parks. Universal Orlando began using wand-style metal detectors in an area leading into its parks and nightlife district. SeaWorld also began using wand-style detectors.
The safety measures extend outside Orlando. Disneyland and Universal Studios in Hollywood are also using the devices.
