Walt Disney World bans private fishing at its resorts

ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA.WESH) — Walt Disney World Resort has made more changes in the wake of a fatal alligator attack earlier this month.

Signs that say, “No fishing” were posted at Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, the Fort Wilderness Campground and the Old Key West Resort.

Fishing was eliminated on most Disney grounds, unless it’s part of a guided excursion.

Netting was also added to the already standing rope fences lining the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon, where 2-year-old Lane Graves was drowned by an alligator on June 14

That specific gator was later captured and removed from the premises.
