The fact that you can walk from the Polynesian to the Grand Floridian ought to indicate how silly it is to check someone before they board a boat or monorail to make the same trip. "Sterile zone." Right. Are they going to perform security checks before they allow someone to drive into a resort parking lot? If not, then the resorts are not protected (and let's be clear, they wouldn't really be protected even if they did check people at the resort gates). If the resorts are not protected, then checking people on resort-to-resort launches is just protecting the boats, not the people on the boats. I'm sorry about this rant, which isn't directly at you personally, Mr. Camel. But this is absurd. It's a waste of money, effort, and the precious time each of has on this great green Earth to do all of this. It accomplishes nothing but fuel our fears. It won't even insulate Disney from a massive lawsuit if someone decides to go all kill-crazy at WDW, which surely must be the reason they are doing this.
