With temporary fencing and signs going up along shorelines at Walt Disney World in the wake of the unfortunate tragedy of a 2-year old child getting killed by an alligator, one wonders what the permanent solution might be.
The fencing looks like this:

Disney Statement on the fencing and signs
Disney released the following statement:
“We are installing signage and temporary barriers at our resort beach locations and are working on permanent, long-term solutions at our beaches. We continue to evaluate processes and procedures for our entire property, and, as part of this, we are reinforcing training with our Cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to Guests on this topic.”
There have been reports of guests feeding alligators from the decks of the new Polynesian bungalows which are over the Seven Seas Lagoon. If true, this could have contributed to the tragic loss of life. I wonder if Disney is going to install cameras to watch the bungalow decks like they do at the Animal Kingdom Villas?
What do you think of this? What options should Disney consider for the permanent solution? What about doing something like this?
