VIDEO: Disney Security Uses Family to Help with K-9 Bomb Training

Time to head to the Disney Parks! As you approach security, chances are the last thing you’d think about is helping with a K-9 bomb sniffing training… but this family stepped up to assist.

When visiting Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, or any of the Disney Park, it’s very obvious Disney’s security is top-notch. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, even more efforts have been put into a seamless security checkpoint that now allows Guests to walk through checkpoints without having each Disney Park Guest needing to open his or her bag.

Have an umbrella? Just be sure to hold that out in front of you when passing through to avoid being pulled into the special bag check line. Outside of the security checkpoints prior to entering the Disney Parks, Disney also has several undercover police positioned throughout the Parks that are made to look like you and me to go unnoticed unless there is an emergency or in the incident of a fight.

Most recently, we’ve seen Disney add security Cast Members to the conflicts areas on rides such as Frozen Ever After at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT where the Lightning Lane and Standby line met up, as this can be a high-tension spot for Guests having to wait for people paying to ride the attraction.

The speed and technology of Disney’s security have developed in wonderful ways, but we love that nothing beats the trustworthy K9 unit! Disney’s four-legged security can be spotted around the Park entrance as they are trained to sniff out drugs and bomb elements.

Recently, a family visiting Disneyland Park was asked to help with a K-9 bomb-sniffing exercise. The mother of the family was nervous, but all went well as shared in the video. @gabriellegutierr took to social media to share “Disney’s K-9 unit asked us to help them with a K-9 bomb sniffing training. Why was my mom so nervous acting like an actual criminal?”. Check out the video below:

Way to go, Disney K-9 Unit! Thanks to all of the Cast Members, Security Guards, and beloved dog Guards for keeping the Parks safe for families to enjoy.

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
