ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Officials at Disney, Universal and SeaWorld's Florida theme parks say they are adding enhanced security measures, including metal detectors, inside and outside of venues ahead of the busy holiday season.
All three parks will be using metal detector screening. Disney will be randomly selecting guests for secondary screening, and wouldn't say how long the measures would be in place. Universal says its metal detection use is a test and won't discuss specific future plans. SeaWorld says guests can expect bag checks and wand metal detector checks.
Disney is also no longer allowing guests 14 years and older to wear costumes into its parks.
In addition, Disney is discontinuing the sale of toy guns at both its Florida and California parks, and will no longer allowing those items to be brought in.
