LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) _ Walt Disney World is placing limits on fishing after an alligator killed a toddler at the park earlier this month.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that “No fishing” signs have been erected at areas including Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the Fort Wilderness campground and Old Key West Resort. Fishing at Disney World is now limited to excursions.

A Disney spokeswoman confirmed that netting has been added to the rope fences that were installed after an alligator attacked 2-year-old Lane Graves near the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon.

Other changes following the Nebraska boy’s death include hotel beaches being staffed by employees and closing at night, except during fireworks. Disney has beaches at eight hotels and at the Fort Wilderness campground.
