Disneyland security checkpoints will soon include the Downtown Disney district in a move that is set to be completed by the end of the year.

The change of checkpoints is intended to boost security and increase guest convenience, a Disney spokeswoman said.

While no "specific incident" has prompted the change, the park constantly reevaluates is safety procedures and has acted on a "current state of heightened awareness," the spokeswoman said.

The plan will see the western security location, currently located between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, move outward. The east side checkpoint is not changing for now.

The new metal detectors and bag checks will be located in the area between ESPN Zone and the Rainforest Cafe; ESPN Zone and Earl of Sandwich; and an area located by Sephora and Anna & Elsa's Boutique.

In addition, guests entering through the Disney and Friends parking structure will also have to go through the metal detectors and bag checks.

The security point from the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa into Disney California Adventure will remain.

Currently, people who do not visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure can enter Downtown Disney without going through a metal detector or a bag check.

However, visitors to the theme parks have to go through the checkpoints each time they go in and out of Downtown Disney and back into one of the parks.

Moving the security points out will allow park guests to go into Downtown Disney without having to go through the points a second time.

The spokeswoman said that they do not foresee a bottleneck effect by visitors trying to enter into Disney property, since the higher number of security points will in turn help control the larger crowd that will now encompass the secured area.

The move is set to be completed by sometime in December, the spokeswoman said.
