Disney World erected a temporary wood and rope barrier around the Seven Seas Lagoon where 2-year-old Lane Graves was dragged to his death by an alligator.
Workers were seen erecting the fence near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, where Lane was killed at the man-made beach Tuesday night.
The workers also installed new signs warning resort guests that alligators and snakes lurk nearby in the murky water.
The signs read: “DANGER Alligators and snakes in area, stay away from the water, do not feed the wildlife.”
“We are installing signage and temporary barriers at our resort beach locations and are working on permanent, long-term solutions at our beaches,” Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said in a statement to the NY Post.
Lane, of Elkhorn, Nebraska, was wading in less than 12 inches of water with his parents and 2 siblings when the gator attacked him.
A lifeguard who was working at a nearby pool said he saw Lane wade out about 10 feet from shore when the alligator grabbed him around 9:15 p.m.
Lane's father, Matt Graves, and the lifeguard fought desperately to rescue the boy from the gator's jaws, but they were unsuccessful.
Lane's intact body was found the next day in 6 feet of water, about 15 yards from where the gator snatched him.
The cause of death was determined to be drowning and internal trauma from puncture wounds to his body.
The Grand Floridian Resort is one monorail stop away from the Magic Kingdom.
All guests were comped free rooms after the tragedy.
