In November the Disney Company announced that it would be expanding the secure zone at Disneyland Resort to include Downtown Disney.
This is a fabulous idea, namely because you will now be able to leave the parks, go to Downtown Disney, and return to the parks without having to go through security again. Anyone who has attempted that in the past knows it’s more trouble than it’s worth.
Now you will go through security when you exit the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure, or when you walk onto the property from Harbor Blvd, from the hotels, and in the future, from the new east side parking structure.
The new security checkpoints have been under construction for a month now and are set to open on Thursday.
