Disney is implementing a change to its Florida resort after a toddler was killed by an alligator in June. 

A barrier of rock is being placed at the Walt Disney World Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Orlando, which is where the child, Lane Graves of Nebraska, was killed. A similar barrier will be added to all resort beach locations.

The barrier will run along the Seven Seas Lagoon beach line. Work of the Flordia barrier began several weeks ago and will be complete by the end of September.

Immediately following the June incident, the Disney company and CEO Bob Iger released statements sharing their deepest condolences for the loss of life. The Graves family did not seek legal action against Disney.
