Walt Disney World Erecting Fencing after Gator Attack

Construction workers have put up a waterfront barrier at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Walt Disney World, three days after a toddler was killed by an alligator at the resort.

Meanwhile, Disney World released a photo of signs it plans to erect at all its resorts with beaches. The red, white and black signs say “Danger! Alligators and snakes in area. Stay away from the water. Do not feed the wildlife.”

Previously, signs had said simply “no swimming.”

“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, and, 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.”

Construction workers put up wooden posts connected with rope along the edge of the Seven Seas Lagoon. All of the beach areas at Disney World remained closed Friday. Eight hotels and the Fort Wilderness campground have lakefront areas with a beach.
