Disney Installing Fence On Beach Where Alligator Attacked Boy

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Photos shared on social media on Friday show a construction crew installing a fence on the beach at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort where a 2-year-old boy was attacked by an alligator on Tuesday night.

Alligator warning signs will also be put up near all the waterways at Walt Disney World resorts following the death of a 2-year-old boy who was dragged into a lagoon.

It's unclear whether the signs will also be installed on Friday.

Disney issued the following statement regarding the construction of the fence:

We are installing signage and temporary barriers at our resort beach locations and are working on permanent, long-term solutions at our beaches. 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.

- Jacquee Wahler, Vice President, Walt Disney World Resort
