After the alligator attack that killed 2-year-old Lane Graves of Nebraska, Disney is making several changes to their beaches and waterfronts at several of their resorts.

The park immediately fenced off and closed beaches after the attack, the beaches eventually opened but with alligator warning signs and the fences intact.

The theme park resort is now focusing on deterring guests from fishing at and around the resorts.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, several No Fishing signs have popped up at several resorts, including Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the Fort Wilderness campground and Old Key West Resort.

Other beach changes include them being closed at nighttime now, with the exception of when fireworks are going off.
