After attack, Disney World to post signs warning of alligators

Following the attack that killed a 2-year-old boy at a resort earlier this week, Disney World will put up signs warning visitors of alligators.

A source told the Orlando Sentinel it's not clear where the signs will go or how many will be posted. On Tuesday, Lane Graves was attacked by an alligator on the shoreline of the Seven Seas Lagoon at the Grand Floridian Resort; his body was found Wednesday. Guests have reported alligators in the lagoon and also at the Coronado Springs Resort, the Sentinel says, and one employee said he warned the Grand Floridian that the area should be fenced off. While there were signs up by the lagoon warning against swimming, none mentioned the presence of alligators.

All of Disney's beaches remain closed, and the company is "conducting a swift and thorough review of all of our processes and protocols," spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said.
