Disney Star Wars Ride Gets Its Own TSA Checkpoint


A Star Wars ride at Disneyworld in Orlando has been equipped with a TSA style checkpoint complete with naked body scanners and authoritarian security agents.
Of course, it’s a “joke”, the scanners are not real. However, critics contend that the move represents a normalization of grossly invasive security theater.
Thrill seekers entering the newly re-opened Star Tours Star Wars simulator ride will now find themselves in a security line similar to that of any airport across the country.
A Disney update states:
The second room of the queue is now a security check area, similar to a TSA checkpoint. The two G-series droids are still there, G2-9T scanning luggage and G2-4T scanning passengers. While we won’t tell you why, you’ll enjoy paying a lot of attention to what the scans of the luggage show is inside.
It gets better, Disney wants your experience to be as close to a real trip to the airport as it can be:
When it’s your turn to go through the passenger scan (a thermal body scan), you may be verbally accosted by a security droid. Also, keep an eye out in the queue for an earlier version of RX-24 (“Captain Rex”) from the original Star Tours; he’s labeled “defective” and has some familiar dialogue.
