Greetings fellow Mouse Fans…
I have been struggling with what to write for two days now. (Which is why this post is a day late.) And I'm still not certain what to say as I sit here glued to my computer watching the events in Boston and Watertown continue to unfold. All I know is that this is a time when people come together and out of the madness, goodness rises. As Mr. Roger said, "Look for the helpers."
Already the emails have begun to arrive asking the inevitable question – "What about Walt Disney World? What are the security procedures?"
It is inevitable and understandable that when something like the events at the Boston Marathon occurs that people question security surrounding major tourist attractions and events.
Let me be as reassuring as possible with some facts:
Walt Disney World employs over 1000 security personnel.
Guests entering Disney parks enter through security check points and bag checks. Those of you who have been there may have grumbled once or twice as a security guard looked through your bags with flashlights or made you unzip every pocket, now have a new appreciation for their throughness.
There may be other security measures in place that we are completely unaware of because those are the best kind. If they broadcast every thing they do, how effective would they be?
The Disney community and all of us at MEI-Travel & Mouse Fan Travel are keeping all of those in Boston in our thoughts and prayers.
As always – Be well and make magic wherver you go.
