I was laying in bed last night and remembered I wanted to post this! LOL!
When departing, TSA asked how old the kids were and we were ushered into a “family” security line. They had signs explaining everywhere that it was a trial.
It was slower than the other line so you didn’t feel rushed. The TSA were very nice and took it slow too. They were talking with the kids about the vacation and one loved my Mickey Shirt ect. It was not slow like packed- slow like there was no one rushing you to get through or looking at you like you were a pain in the buns.
I still had to go through the new scanner [B]but the kids didn’t[/B]. They went through the metal one and my [B]DN didn’t have to take off his shoes[/B]. Apparently 11 and under didn’t have to.
In addition, we did get stopped for the bag of toys and suckers ect… usually when we leave Orlando, our bags get searched - weird souvenirs may be the culprit because it never happens anywhere else! But as soon as I said what was in there, they were ok with it. Every other time I have had to unpack the whole strategically packed bag. Don’t know if this is a result of the new trial or coincidence though.
Nice perk for families. I could see I would really love it if I had little ones! Mine were used to the drill of the line but it was still nice!
