no title

This is SO disturbing to hear!

On Monday, we learned that Disney World officials were warned about a dangerous alligator less than an hour before two-year-old Lane Graves was attacked and killed back in June.

Now, we're hearing the alligator likely lost its fear of humans after living in close proximity to people for so long before the attack.

A report from the Florida Fish And Wildlife Conservation Commission, which classified the attack itself as "predatory," found that

Disney Was Warned About Alligator 45 MINUTES Before 2-Year-Old Lane Graves Was Killed

Filed under: R.I.P.DisneySad SadAlligatorViral: KidsViral: Animals

This just makes an already sad story even more upsetting.

It's been over two months since 2-year-old Lane Graves was killed by an alligator while vacationing at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and yet we're still learning new details about the tragic accident.

The autopsy for the Nebraskan toddler was released late last week, and, unfortunately, it seems as though Disney was even more at fault than we originally thought!

That's because in addition to failing to providing sufficient signage to alert guests about the reptiles, according to the report, some Grand Floridian Resort cast members were warned about the alligator by other visitors just 45 MINUTES before Lane was dragged under water.

Apparently, Shawna Giacomini of North Carolina and her two daughters first noticed the wild animal five feet away from shore at around 8:15 p.m. EST. While they allegedly told the hotel's movie coordinator about the alligator, when they returned to the beach at 9 p.m. EST… Lane was already gone.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also confirmed that the child's cause of death was indeed cranio-cervical trauma as well as drowning, but hopefully the Lanes' loss can help prevent future deaths.

Please stay safe while enjoying your Summer breaks, everyone!

Rest in peace, Lane.

Disney World DIGIT-ally Alters Steven Tyler's Sexual Hand Gesture In Aerosmith Ride! See What It Looks Like Now!

Filed under: DisneySteven TylerViral: News

Walt Disney World has been taking the steps to make its parks more family friendly lately.

The theme park recently removed all animated alligators following the June incident when a young boy was fatally attacked by a gator in a Disney's resort — but Splash Mountain isn't the only ride that's getting tamed down!

Disney's Hollywood Studios just de-sexualized one of its oldest rides by digitally altering the pre-show video for Aerosmith's Rock ‘N' Roller Coaster!

Park frequenters may have noticed Steven Tyler used to make a peculiar hand gesture in the video that plays for the in-line riders — which could be mistaken for a "crude" thumb-to-ring-finger sexual gesture (seen above) commonly known as "the shocker".

Well, we guess enough people finally complained — because Disney digitally removed the gesture 17 years later!

Thanks to computer magic, the rock star's sexual gesture has now turned into a harmless open palm — and the result is much more PC:

Disney Has Quietly Removed All Animated Crocodiles & Alligators From Theme Park Following Death Of 2-Year-Old

Filed under: R.I.P.DisneySad SadCrocodilesAlligatorViral: Animals

We still can't believe this tragic story actually happened at the happiest place on earth.

As you're surely aware, 2-year-old Lane Graves was killed by an alligator while wading in the water at Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa two weeks ago.

While the kid-friendly theme park has since added fences, signs, and even a net around the lagoon where Lane was dragged underwater, Disney is now doing even more to make families feel safe.

According to numerous firsthand accounts from fans, the House of Mouse has quietly wiped all traces of their animated alligators and crocodiles from the park.

We already knew that Jungle Cruise operators had removed a croc-inspired joke from the ride, but now we're hearing that characters like Louis from The Princess & The Frog, Tick Tock Croc from Peter Pan, and Brutus and Nero from The Rescuers are nowhere to be seen as well.

This does seem like the decent thing to do, at least while the Graves family is still in mourning.

With that said, we're hearing the real alligators inside Epcot's Living with the Land aren't going anywhere… which doesn't make much sense.

Do U think Disney is going overboard by removing any signs of the reptiles??

Jack Sparrow Is Staying Put — Abuse Claims Against Johnny Depp Don't Have Disney Worried About Pirates Of The Caribbean's Future

no title

We're gonna be seasick.

Johnny Depp is currently wrapped up in the most tumultuous divorce of the year, and once again, his prominent industry peers don't seem to care very much about Amber Heard's disturbing domestic abuse claims.

Disney CEO Bob Iger became the latest Hollywood power player to speak out about the Pirates of the Caribbean actor's personal problems on Wednesday… but he seems almost too lackadaisical about the whole ordeal.

The 65-year-old businessman sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to discuss the grand opening of Shanghai Disneyland Park, but when the topic of Jack Sparrow's role in the Pirates ride came up, Bob didn't seem at all bothered by the drama.

In fact, while Bob doesn't necessarily think the public is going to forget about Amber's accusations anytime soon… he's not that worried about their effect on the Pirates brand:

Last week tragedy struck Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida when two-year-old Lane Graves was attacked by an alligator, dragged into a lagoon, and killed in front of his parents Matt Graves and Melissa Graves.

After the body was discovered and the family released a statement, neighbors began to honor the late child with a beautiful tribute on his street.

Well now it's sadly time for the Graves family to pay their respects to their son as they recently announced Lane will be buried on Tuesday. The service will be held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Elkhorn, Nebraska with both a rosary prayer service and wake being held prior on Sunday night and Monday respectively.

Seeing as how this was such a high profile case, there will be no cameras, cell phones, or other recording devices at the funeral "out of respect for the family."
