ORLANDO, FLA. (WSVN) - Walt Disney World re-opened its beaches to guests, Friday, more than a week after a 2-year-old boy was attacked and killed by an alligator.

The beaches are now open from one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset.

Disney has added more signs and temporary barriers to try and keep guests and others safe.

Lane Graves, the 2-year-old from Nebraska, was snatched by a gator from a beach at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort earlier this month and was later found dead.

State wildlife officials said they believe the gator responsible for the toddler’s death was captured and killed.
