The new Castle Welcome show began this week, allowing Magic Kingdom security to move the security checkpoints further from the park entrance. There is now a baggage check table and metal detector at the end of the walkway from the Contemporary, one set of tables and metal detectors to the right of the entrance for guests using the bus, and another set of baggage check tables and metal detectors towards the entrance for guests using the launches and monorails. All guests now are required to go through the metal detectors. Hopefully this will ease the congestion at the parks entrance.
