    Pinioned birds at Animal Kingdom—UPDATED

    Said it many times while at DAK, if I were an animal in a zoo, DAK is where I would want to be. We have had parrots as pets for 30+ years now, and you learn after living with them that they are really wild animals and don't belong in cages. That said, they are victims of their own beauty and...

    My Unpopular WDW Opinion - post yours!

    Don't love the current theme of Tomorrowland; I really miss the tiled waterfalls of the original look. Beautiful.

    Oh, there you go again bringing facts into this and spoiling all the fun! :)

    If by "never happened before" you mean a death, then that is correct. However there have been instances of attacks reported. Wapo did an article last week on one in 1986 or 1983 or something like that with a picture of a kid in a hospital bed surrounded by Disney characters.

    You are absolutely correct. Didn't even think about the turtles. A boardwalk wouldn't disrupt their habitat, but a seawall would. Proving that this is a complex issue that will require a multi-faceted solution and not a simple one-pronged approach. In the short term, however, signs warning of...

    True, but people might be less inclined to put their feet in the water with a system like that in place.

    There are no counter measures that come with a guarantee, but that doesn't mean that no attempts should be made.

    Yeah, I know, but one can hope. It would complete change the theme of some areas, but it would be safe and most likely nothing like this would happen again. It would also provide a place for people to walk as well.

    No matter what, they need the alligator signs. The horrible part is that it took till now to get it done.

    Someone - many, many pages back - mentioned a system of sea walls and boardwalks as a solution to the alligator threat. That's really about the only thing that will keep people really safe.

    I agree with you! The illusion that this is a "beach" puts people in a whole different mindset from this is a "lakefront". I think I said this before that the trucked in beach sand is as much to blame for creating the atmosphere of a carefree beachfront as the lack of alligator warning signs is...

    Not to mention that it is part of the water management system through all of WDW with a series of canals and natural water bodies all interconnected. The term "man made" doesn't imply that its like a pool or something similar. It has long since been claimed by the natural ecosystem in the area.

    Oh absolutely! Another contributing factor, I think, is the whole concept of a lot of the resort areas having "beaches" with trucked in sand when in fact they are lakefront - with alligators.

    You're right about non-Floridians not knowing about the presence of gators. Florida residents just assume if there's a water body, there are alligators. Now, for Florida residents (Disney) to have that knowledge and not share it with "guests" seems at the very least to be negligent. Perhaps...

    Comcast/Universal has donated $1 Million to OneOrlando fund

    I love that these contributions are coming in like this. I really despise what has happened in and to our beautiful city in the last week and all the terrible loss of life. Thank you Universal and Disney for leading the way!

    News New security measures

    Australia had a fairly effective response to a mass shooting a few years back. I'm hoping that we in this country will have the backbone and fortitude to do the same. Although I hate the security measures that WDW has had to enact; the need is abundantly clear this morning. I guess I have to...

    You beat me to it. Where are all the good guys with guns? Still waiting for just one of these tragedies to be stopped one.
