A spokesperson for Disney told FOXBusiness.com, "Unfortunately we've all been living in a world of uncertainty, and during this time we have increased our security measures across our properties, adding such visible safeguards as magnetometers, additional canine units, and law enforcement officers on site, as well as less visible systems that employ state-of-the-art security technologies."

Omar Mateen, the man responsible for at least 49 deaths and 53 injured at the Pulse night club in Orlando, had reportedly scouted Walt Disney World, according to Reuters, citing two officials briefed on the investigation.
