Enhanced Security Feature Coming to Walt Disney World

Even the most magical place needs to protect its guests. What do you think of this new enhanced security feature?

Disney Parks are designed to allow guests to enjoy a land of wonder and leave the cares of this world behind for just a few hours or a few days. To help allow guests to feel safe, Disney continues to enhance safety measures.

One of the best changes to Disney security is the Evolv scanners at all Walt Disney World park entrances. These first debuted in 2020 and allow guests to simply walk through the scanner. Only select guests are asked to have their bags searched rather than every single guest.

Many Disney fans are also aware of the increasing number of fights and altercations within the Disney Parks. Disney addressed this issue by adding a “Courtesy Reminder” for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland websites.

Since the parks reopened in 2020, guests were encouraged to use contactless payment. Guests may still use cash but are encouraged to use their MagicBand, Apple Pay, or a credit card with features to either swipe, tap, or insert the chip into the credit card scanner.

Over the past couple of weeks, new payment scanners are now being installed across Walt Disney World. The first thing that you may notice is that the screen of this scanner is quite a bit smaller than before.

Guests may still tap using their card or MagicBand, but this feature is now located at the very top of the machine. Many guests share that this makes it easier to tap their MagicBand which is a great new addition.

There is also an added security device – located just above where guests will swipe their cards – a small camera. This is a great feature to help deter theft and possible fraud.

During our recent trip to Walt Disney World, we found at least three lost MagicBands. This new feature will help prevent a lost MagicBand from being charged wrongfully.

New credit card scanners help to prevent unauthorized charges at Walt Disney World.

What do you think of these new security features? Have you experienced unauthorized charges on your account during a trip to Walt Disney World? Share your thoughts and share this news with your Disney pals.

Hmmm...a camera that will probably capture guests entering their private PIN.

The new scanners are horrible. I had to keep taking off my magic band to line it up properly to be scanned.

Purchases using a magic band requires a pin number. A pin that only the owner of the band will know.
