    Is the security/bag check process at Disney World the same?

    Hello, dear Joyce! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for visiting us once again. We always love to help old friends! 

    I'm happy to share that the Walt Disney World Resort reviewed every possible opportunity to make the experience safer to their Guests, and the security and bag check procedures were no exception. Everything is still evolving daily, and processes may look even better when you visit this August, of course, but security measures do look a little different now. 

    The Walt Disney World Resort is currently using contactless bag check procedures in which Cast Members don't touch your bag, and many Guests report that the process feels smooth and safe. On multiple occasions, my friends told me that the new method is faster than the old-style bag checks, and that's always great news. As long as we can all keep mouse traps away from the Walt Disney World Resort, we'll be good to go, right?

    I'm sensing that you're a planner like us, and I hope that this information helps you plan your ideal Theme Park bag as well as the best timing to enter each Theme Park

    Please let us know if you have more questions before your awesome trip is here, Joyce! We're always thrilled to help fellow planners make the most of their Walt Disney World Resort vacations! 

    May the magic (and the face coverings) be with you,
