Um, a number of them do, or they have jogging paths, or docks, or areas to feed the ducks, or picnic areas right up against the water. They're quite nice during the day and you just keep an eye out. Again, normal alligators are not out to get you. They're out to get their normal food and protect their nests and fight each other for territory.
This same week, several other people have been attacked by native wildlife. Next week, it'll happen again. A few weeks ago, traffic was snarled near here because of a small alligator crossing the road. Up north, it was deer, and further up north it's moose. Out west, I had no expectation that the areas around Vegas resorts would be meticulously cleared of scorpions or snakes. Most of the people in the thread have basically said they didn't think there'd be alligators at Disney, even if there were gators elsewhere. Yep. That's pretty foolish. They can send patrols out all they want, but they'll never be completely rid of alligators (or snakes or snapping turtles or other nasty hazards). They can only mitigate the problem of hand-fed alligators, and alligator breeding grounds they've allowed to fester on their property. And of course they can put up little rope barriers and signs that won't actually stop people from feeding them or going wading, but will only minimize their liability in a lawsuit situation.
