The day after a 2-year-old boy was dragged to his death by an alligator at a Disney World resort, crowds of visitors – including parents with children in strollers or toddlers dressed as little princesses – appeared unaffected by the tragedy.
That may be because Walt Disney World officials did little to call attention to the lightning-fast attack that occurred at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Disney World Tuesday night.
Tragedies come and go and life goes back to normal. That’s the problem. Where were the Disney warnings about alligators on their properties?
Shopkeepers at the resort, who are not employed by Disney, also found it curious that Disney failed to discuss what happened.
Disney did not openly address the alligator attack – with neither the guests who were staying at the resort nor the people who worked in the shops.
I’ve been to Florida many times. Alligators are everywhere. It’s so common to see alligators that you won’t even see warning signs. It’s Florida, folks.
