Disney Unveils New Warning Signs Where Alligator Attack Occurred

By: Jon Corrigan

Following the tragic death of a toddler at Disney’s Grand Floridian last week, the resort has unveiled new signage warning guests about the presence of alligators and other wildlife.

Disney has also installed fences around the water.

“We are installing signage and temporary barriers at our resort beach locations and are working on permanent, long-term solutions at our beaches,” Disney said in a statement. “We continue to evaluate processes and procedures for our entire property, an, as part of this, we are reinforcing training with our cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to guests on this topic.”

The new warning signs read: “DANGER. ALLIGATORS AND SNAKES IN AREA. STAY AWAY FROM THE WATER. DO NOT FEED THE WILDLIFE,” and feature images of an alligator and a snake.

Two-year-old Lane Graves was dragged into the Seven Seas Lagoon, a man-made lake, by an alligator around 9:00 on Tuesday night. He body was discovered fully-intact on Wednesday afternoon, not far from where he was snatched while playing in a foot of water.
