Megan and Kris talk about the recent updated to security at Disneyland and what this means for you.
In a nutshell, the security checkpoints have been moved from the courtyard between Disneyland and California Adventure to just outside the Mickey & Friends parking structure. There are also now security checkpoints on the perimeter of Downtown Disney.
These changes have made going through security faster and smoother and allows them to be more thorough in their searches. This also means that Downtown Disney is now within the bounds of security and therefore more protected.
Finally, it also means that they've rerouted the walking route from the Mickey & Friends parking structure. Instead of walking down Magic Way to Disneyland Drive to get into the parks, you'll now have to walk a little further taking Downtown Drive through the parking lot for Downtown Disney ending up at the security checkpoint between ESPN Zone and Rainforest Cafe. It's a little longer of a walk but it's also more protected.
Probably better just to take the tram. :)
Note: We've covered navigating Disneyland Security in Episode 65 which includes tips on getting through fast and being considerate to those waiting in line with you.
