Walt Disney World is making some changes in the wake of an alligator attack that killed a 2-year old boy at one of the company's resorts, reports CBS Miami.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, "No fishing" signs have been added to areas including Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the Fort Wilderness campground and Old Key West Resort.

Beaches are now staffed by employees and are closed at night except during fireworks shows.

Did they write it in Gator?

Next step is teaching 2-year-olds to read.

Then it would have to translate to “No Humaning”

I watched a show about a guy hunting crocodiles in Africa.

You shoot them at a spot behind their eyes.

The crocodile died immediately.

Shouldn’t that be “No Kidding” ?

I can’t but think the “No Fishing” is a typo. It must be “No Swimming”

Luis the alligator - from the Disney film "The Princes and the Frog" -- has been dropped. The alligator was supposed to appear in the new castle show. Tic-Toc The Croc - from the Disney film "Peter Pan" -- was pulled from a parade.

How stupid and pointless.

Same with gators. Try a head shot and all you do is piss them off.

I feel so bad for everybody involved: the family from Nebraska, Disney employees, Disney World attendees, ... everyone.

It was so, so sad.

Not if you're Disney and wanting to remove any reminder whatsoever of that alligator attack because it's bad for their business.

More ridiculousness.

Humans don’t have long on this planet.

Just add “Locally Raised, Free-Range, Organic Gator” to all their restaurant menus.

“Tastes like chicken!”

“You, too, can do your part to thin the herd. Order a plateful today.”
