Disney World and Universal Studios Add Metal Detectors to Entrances

Dec 17, 2015

Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando all boosted their security on Thursday following recent mass shootings by adding metal detectors at their entrances.

Disney World is taking steps beyond the added detectors as well, such as discontinuing toy gun sales in all of its parks and barring anyone 14 and older from wearing a costume, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The parks have also increased the security presence on the ground.

"We continually review our comprehensive approach to security and are implementing additional security measures, as appropriate," Disney said in a statement.

On Monday, a man was caught trying to bring a gun into the Magic Kingdom Disney park.
