Disney installs gator warnings, barriers after boy’s death


MIAMI: Disney World said Friday (Saturday in Manila) it was installing alligator warning signs and temporary barriers at its Florida resorts following the death of a toddler who was snatched from the shore of a lake. The signs warn visitors of “alligators and snakes in area” and also tell patrons to stay away from the water and not feed wildlife. “We continue to evaluate processes and procedures for our entire property,” spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler told reporters. There was a no swimming sign at the lakeside beach at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa where the two-year-old boy and his family were staying. However there were no signs warning about alligators. “We are reinforcing training with our cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to guests on this topic,” Wahler said.
