Walt Disney World is moving its metal detectors to an earlier entry point at its most popular park, Magic Kingdom.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the detectors will now by located at the Transportation and Ticket Center starting next Monday. Visitors staying at three resorts along the monorail route, meanwhile, will go through security at the monorail stations there.

The metal detectors currently are located at the entrance to Magic Kingdom. Visitors typically park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and then take a monorail or ferry to the park.

The Sentinel quotes Disney officials as saying that the change is an effort to improve the arrival process for visitors.

Orlando's other major theme parks, Universal and SeaWorld, also have metal detectors.
