I failed to mention a thought I had while driving to work this week. I started to think about how those lakes at the Magic Kingdom are interconnected, and that Fort Wilderness has a long-abandoned water park there on the shore of Bay Lake, the old River Country. And I thought that, if any place, that overgrown ruin would be ideal for alligators to nest.
Scroll down to the Sentinel‘s video, which is a link to a video made recently and broadcast on Inside Edition. Looks like someone else had the same thoughts.
