New Disney Parks Security Policies


Disney Parks has issued new park security policies, for both Disney World and Disneyland. We have included a link below to the full policies on the Disney website, but what has really changed today is:

  • Toy weapons or objects that appear to be weapons, will not be allowed in the parks – this includes toy guns, toy blasters, squirt guns…The parks will no longer be selling toy guns
  • Metal detectors are set up and being used at bag check locations at the parks
  • Guests ages 14 and older may not wear costumes
  • Guests ages 14 and older may not wear masks, unless medically necessary. Younger guests can not wear masks that block peripheral vision

We would anticipate that these changes will slow down security checkpoints so if you are heading to parks, plan extra time for getting into the parks. The Disney World security policies are that same for Disneyland Park as well.
