DHS side entrance closed (pics)

The lesser-used “side” entrance to the Main Gate of Disney’s Hollywood Studios has closed without warning. This walkway was commonly used by locals and other frequent visitors who knew that waiting for a tram in this parking lot was often a longer process than simply walking. And if walking, the side pathway was a more direct route to the turnstiles.

Many years ago, there was no security checkpoint here at all, but in the years after 9/11, a bag check was added.

Then, temporary metal detectors was added, until slowly metal detectors became required of all and not simply “random selections.”
