Theme Park Security

In the wake of the tragic Pulse Night Club shooting 2 months ago the Orlando area theme parks have heightened security measures such as metal detectors and additional personnel. The new security measures are designed to make large crowds safer while doing everything to not hinder the pleasure of the visitors on which Orlando relies so heavily.

In conjunction with the Orange and Osceola County Sheriffs, Fish & Wildlife Commission, and various emergency response agencies that are accustomed to processing large amounts of guests every effort is being made to guarantee a happy and memorable vacation for the millions of people around the world who choose to visit our great state.
