All anyone has to say is “the happiest place on earth” and we all know you’re talking about Disney. We grow up with this incredible image of the most magical, fairy dust enchanted land there ever was, and some of us have even been lucky enough to visit ourselves.
I never got to go to Disney as a child, but when I had a family of my own my husband and I decided we wanted to bring out kids. We’ve visited Disney World in Orlando twice with our children and even went once without them (highly recommend) and never did we ever feel anything but safe.
I’m sure the Graves family also felt safe when they visited the theme park back in June of 2016 and stayed on site at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Sadly we know that the Graves’ 2-year-old son, Lane, was tragically killed after being snatched by an alligator as he played near a beach area.
People were alarmed that alligators would be living so close to the resorts, and despite “no swimming” signs posted near the water the family says they never mentioned the threat of alligators.
