Disney tightens security at its theme parks

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

universal securityHomeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson activated the National Terrorism Advisory System for the first time Wednesday, warning the public of "self-radicalized actors who could strike with little or no notice." As the country faces risks of terror attacks, Disney is increasing security at its theme parks, adding more metal detectors, cops and random screenings.

The bulletin, which marks the addition of a new level of public warning to the system, will be in effect for the next six months, or until events dictate otherwise, Johnson said.

Disney is also ending the sale of toy guns, including water guns, and banning anyone older than 14 from wearing a costume on its properties.

The security measures will be in effect at Universal Studios and SeaWorld as well.
