Here's his update!

This new security bag check location began on Monday 11/7/05. I have no idea if it is permanent, or just an experiment. I personally like it for going into the park, but being forced to exit way over to the west side is not convenient unless you are taking the parking lot tram, or maybe the monorail. It's a long walk back to the Amaze section of the parking lot.
