    Smile Security "Tents"?!?

    Okay... so, I keep reading the same advice from numerous people saying to make sure that you head to the security "tents" and line up to have your bags checked before going to the turnstiles to enter the park!!! My question is... where are the security "tents" located?!? I went on to Google Maps to get a close up look of the park and noticed that there are eight small white buildings between the two parks... four on the left and four on the right... are these the security "tents"?!? I'd like to have somewhat of an idea before we go on our trip so we're not wasting time wondering around searching!!! Thanks

    The only way you are getting to the Disneyland or DCA gates is through the Security...you won't miss it. You won't be wandering around searching. When you get off the tram...follow the crowd.

    The four white buildings on each side of the Plaza are where you purchase tickets. The green tents outside of those are the security tents.

    They're most likely referring to the security bag checks which if you look on Google Maps, are the small row of blue roofs (theres 3 or 4 on each side) located just before the small white buildings. I guess they are kind of tents, but permanent in that sense. The checkpoint isn't hard to find once you're there though. Can't enter the Entrance Plaza without going through them! lol

    Yea there are 4 green tents to the west and 3 to the east. And I don't know who's telling you to go through the tent opossed to above, around, under, sideways, or any other way. If you have not been to the park since 2004 than the tents will be obvouse. The only other ways into the park is the monorail station on the otherside of DtD and the Grand Ca hotel enterance to DCA but they both have a table outside the turnstyle to check you bag. Pre 2004 and post 911 they had tables outside each turnstyle it seamed a little weird to have to get someone from secerity to each table in order to open the turnstyle. (it almost sounds like its now with the CMs checking for multiday tickets, that will soon probaly be done by the bag checkers to help save hours)

    I was so confused about what you were asking about at first! Lol

    As others have said, you can't help but go through the tents when you enter (unless going through the monorail or GCH). They're nothing to worry about, just a bag check.

    Remember to take off your shoes and remove ANY METAL before going through the bag check.



    Actually it's not TSA it's Disney. They just look in your bag, see what food you're bringing in, and if they see any weapons they will confiscate them. In all likelihood you'll pass right through!
