Permanent Bag Check Shelters Coming to Universal

Since the Universal Orlando Resort introduced bag check procedures, Guests might have noticed how some of the checkpoints looked temporary, especially those located at the end of the walkways connecting Universal's theme parks and CityWalk to the five on-site hotels. It looks like that's finally about to change.
During our latest visit, we noticed that the former bag check areas located next to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure have been completely removed.

These photos show the former location of the temporary-looking tables were bags were checked:

A look behind the walls reveals that concrete was removed to make way for new shelters:

Since metal detectors were recently added, it makes sense to refurbish these areas to better integrate the new system. Meanwhile, hotel Guests can still access the CityWalk are from a secondary entrance.
