Gators ‘Routinely’ Removed from Lagoon Where Toddler Was Attacked

Divers at a Disney World resort found the body of a ­2-year-old boy Wednesday, a day after he was snatched by an alligator at a lagoon — where there are no signs warning of the creatures.

Officials admitted that the dangerous animals are “routinely” removed from the grounds — and that Disney even has its own wildlife-management team — yet the signs at the Seven Seas Lagoon, just across from Magic Kingdom Park, warn only against swimming and about deep water and steep drop-offs.

“There’s gators in the lakes and lagoons here,” a grounds worker at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa told The Post.
