PHOTOS: Construction on New Security Screening Area Goes Vertical at Entrance to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

While work on new arrival enhancements at Disney’s Animal Kingdom stalled for a bit over the last few weeks, it seems it’s full speed ahead as the park prepares for its 22nd anniversary coming up in April. Construction on the new security screening tent at the entrance to the park has now gone vertical and can be seen over the scrim-covered fences at the front of the parking lot.

Two sets of structures were seen being constructed, with cylindrical pillars along the edges of what will be the tram turnaround.

The two structures are now being unified at the center, making for a large, all-encompassing security screening area to welcome guests.
