I guess after almost 18 years, they've accepted this is a permanent necessity. Sad that we live in a world where that has to be the case but good that they have finally begun work to streamline the process.So i was there the week after 911 .and they were all ready checking, bags etc looks like that will never change.
I hope more work can go into things like park-hopping where once you have gone through a check and are "in the system" you don't have to do it again if you move directly with Disney transportation.
I know that was supposed to be a feature of the up-charge transportation but since that's gone, it seems like it would be better for them and guests to make this happen and eliminate another bottleneck (and need for additional security staffing).
At the moment, they may be happy with a little more inconvenience when it comes to park hopping but as the three parks who have needed to, have begun to shape up and maybe, if they get evening hours more evenly spread across all four parks in coming years, this option will start to seem like a good thing to them, again. (fingers crossed)
