New Security at Disney World

As you may already know, Disney World recently increased security.  Some of the new safety rules are as follows:

  • Costumes and masks are now prohibited by guests ages 14 and older.
  • Disney is pulling all toy guns from shelves.
  • There has been a heavier presence of uniformed and armed police recently. Disney will also add more K-9 team patrols.
  • At AMC Disney Springs 24 theaters, bags will be subject to search and you may be asked to walk through a scanner similar to what they have at airports. There may also be searches with hand-held wands. This is a temporary change related to increased levels of caution around Star Wars.
  • Walk-through scanners are at bag check lines at Disney theme parks and water parks.

Security measures may continue to change over the next year or so.  I will continue to make updates as changes occur.


The Ganachery is coming to Disney Springs


Disney World has announced a new chocolate shop set to open later this year, The Ganachery.  It will be opening at Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), near other new restaurants like The Boathouse, Jack Lindsey’s Hanger Bar, and Morimoto Asia.

This new shop will have custom blend gourmet chocolate.  Yum!  Customers will have the option to enjoy their tasty treats right there, or take them home for a special treat later on.  It is unknown at this time if this shop will be included on the dining plan.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be.  There’s nothing like using a snack credit for a decadent dessert.  As more information is released about this chocolate shop, I will post more details.  🙂
