The boulder wall is going up along the beaches of the Seven Seas Lagoon where several resorts are located.

It is part of the new security plan following the death of two-year-old Lane Graves of Omaha, Nebraska, said Disney officials.

Disney also put up warning signs and ropes after Lane was dragged by an alligator into the lake on June 14.

Lane's body was found 16 hours later and an autopsy showed he died from drowning and traumatic injuries.

His family decided not to file a lawsuit against Disney.
