Disney Installing Gator Signs, Barriers After Attack on Boy

The move follows killing of a 2-year-old boy by an alligator.

— -- Disney announced today it is installing new signage and temporary barriers on the beaches of its Disney World resorts in the wake of a fatal alligator attack earlier this week.

"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."

The move comes after the death of 2-year-old Lane Graves at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Orlando.

An alligator snatched him into the water Tuesday near the resort, and his body was found the next afternoon.

Disney chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger called the Graves family and released a statement about the boy's death.

"As a parent and a grandparent, my heart goes out to the Graves family during this time of devastating loss," he said. "My thoughts and prayers are with them, and I know everyone at Disney joins me in offering our deepest sympathies."

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
