    Could you please explain the current process for security when entering the Walt Disney World parks now - bag check, finger scan, etc…? Thanks so much. We have a trip coming up this year!

    Hello, Lauren,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney. It's wonderful to read that you have a Walt Disney World trip this year.  With the newest additions of TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you'll be able to enjoy these new attractions that are sure to be an exciting thrill adventure.

    When you enter the theme parks at Walt Disney World, Park & Resort Security will be at each entrance.  You will carry your bags with you through a metal detector.  However, you may be selected at random for a secondary screening.  If you are going through security with a stroller, scooter, or wheelchair, your bags will likely be checked. To help expedite this process, it helps to have any bags open and ready to hand to security. 

    Once you are ready to enter the theme park, you will tap your Theme Park Ticket (Annual Pass, Magic Band, Magic Your Way Ticket, etc) to the Mickey Head, which will light up, and then place your finger on the finger scan plate (use the same finger for every visit). Once that is done, the light on the Mickey Head will change color showing you are ready to enter the park. Time to enjoy the day!

    Cast members are available at every entrance point to help you if there are any questions or problems. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions.
