Security screening improvements coming to the Magic Kingdom to Contemporary Resort walkway

Feb 11, 2019 in "Magic Kingdom"

Disney has filed plans for improvements to the security screening area on the walkway between the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Plans show a proposed shade structure in the location of the existing tent that currently houses the security checkpoint. Along with a more permanent structure, the area also offers more space as it expands into existing landscaping area. (Thanks to @danlb_2000 for spotting the permit)

Disney is currently undertaking a property-wide initiative to improve the arrival experience for guests at the theme parks, with a focus on streaming the security screening.

Many of the existing security screening points were very quickly added in 2017 in response to moving the Magic Kingdom's security screening to the TTC. Work is well underway on major changes to the Disney's Hollywood Studios arrival experience, and now it appears work will begin on the smaller areas such as resort checkpoints.
