Disney acknowledged that it’s an armed world, after all — installing metal detectors at the Walt Disney World theme park entrances today as part of a package of new security measures.
Toy guns are prohibited and adults are no longer allowed to wear costumes under the new policies. Disney has also removed toy guns from its retail locations at the Florida resort.
It’s unclear whether all Disney parks are following suit, and if the measures would be in place permanently.
“We continually review our comprehensive approach to security and are implementing additional security measures, as appropriate,”
Disney said in a statement released to the Orlando Sentinel.
The measures come ahead of the premiere of the latest “Star Wars” movie.
Security at the parks has been beefed up following the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, according to the Orlando Sentinel. A man was also arrested last weekend after allegedly trying to bring a gun inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
