Walt Disney World has reopened its Star Wars ride after an update from its original incarnation as Star Tours.

One interesting addition is the security check point. While it is not an actual security check point, the feature uses thermal imagery to 'process' people and bags for their trip.


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. For those attraction junkies, you'll remember that the G-series droids are so named because in the original Disneyland Park version of the ride, they were created by removing the "skins" from two of the goose animatronics from the soon-to-close America Sings attraction (Goose = "G" series). 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. When it's your turn to go through the passenger scan (a thermal body scan effect), you may be verbally accosted by a security droid. [Editor Note (5/23/11): This is a theming element of the queue, and a great parody at the expense of TSA. This is NOT a serious or actual security scan - the thermal imaging is similar to what has been used for years in Test Track at Epcot.]

I don't know if it is intended to make the idea of invasive search like the TSA performs comical as a poke at them or if it is to get kids to laugh at it to make it acceptable. It may do both.
