All beaches closed at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has announced that all of their beaches on property are now closed until further notice.  This is due to the alligator attack last night, June 14.  An alligator came up onto the beach at the Grand Floridian and pulled a 2-year-old boy back into the water.  Crews are still patrolling the Seven Seas Lagoon, but the child and the alligator have not yet been found.

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (, Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
