    We are staying in the resort and wondered if there is a way to do security and stay in a secure area before arriving at the gate of parks so the line is less at the actual park. If so what time does security start to be screened at those areas and where?

    Hi there, Christiana! Thanks for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're to help you make any plans for your upcoming Disney vacation.

    Over last year or so, the security checkpoints have made a few changes that help keep some of the wait times as low as possible. At the Magic Kingdom, guests who are staying at one of the Monorail resorts, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, the security checkpoints are located at the entrance of the Monorail loading area. Guests who are boarding the Monorail at one of the resorts are checked before they board and don't have to be checked again upon entering the Magic Kingdom. If you take the walking trail from Disney's Contemporary Resort, there is a security checkpoint on this path. 
    For Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios, the security checkpoints are located at the entrance of each park. Epcot has two; one in Future World and one in World Showcase. 

    The security checkpoints open right around the time that the complimentary transportation around the resorts and theme parks begins operations for the day. I've been in line as early as a couple of hours before Disney's Hollywood Studios opened and security was in operation. 
    Christiana, there are several stations for you to have your bag or stroller checked, and remember that each security table is double-sided.

    I hope this helps with your Disney day planning. If you find that you have more questions, please stop by and visit with us again. We're more than happy to help you with FastPass+, Advanced Dining Reservation, and Memory Maker questions.
