The entrance to the Walt Disney World theme park is seen June 15, 2016 in Orlando, Florida where a two-year-old boy was attacked by an alligator at the Seven Seas Lagoon by the Grand Floridian hotel.
An American family’s Disney vacation turned into a nightmare when an alligator snatched a two-year-old boy at the shore of a resort lake and fought off the father’s frantic attempts to wrest the toddler from its mouth, officials said Wednesday. A search and rescue operation was launched after the attack Tuesday night at the Grand Floridian hotel not far from the Magic Kingdom was ongoing, but police said they held out little hope the boy would be found alive.

ORLANDO, Fla. (WJW) — A tourist was arrested after he reportedly refused to get his temperature checked at Disney World. Temperature checks are mandatory for all guests as part of Disney’s coronavirus safety protocols.

According to the Orlando Sentential, the incident occurred on February 13.

Police reportedly confronted Kelly Sills, 47, of Louisiana, after he skipped the temperature check tent, refused to undergo screening, and wouldn’t leave the property when authorities asked him to.

The Washington Post reports that Sills argued with officials, asserting that he paid $15,000 for his vacation and therefore they couldn’t remove him from the property.

“I paid $15,000. You can’t trespass me for paying $15,000,” Sills reportedly said.

Sills was arrested and recently pleaded not guilty on a charge of trespassing, according to the Orlando Sentential. The newspaper says they contacted Sills’ attorney on Thursday, however, the lawyer refused to comment on the case.
