  1. She is lucky there wasn’t an alligator near. People need to realize if there’s water there are alligators! I know they have the gator hunters on property to catch them but they can’t find them all

  2. The first thing that entered my head when reading this was ALLIGATORS. She was very lucky to remain topless and not lifeless. When will people learn to not let their guard down when near water whilst in Florida. Nothing surprises me anymore in this day and age.

  3. Two things immediately came to mind (and neither was ‘topless is inappropriate here’): Alligators and microscopic things that live in warm fresh water. Brain-destroying amoebas, flesh-eating bacteria, e. coli and other delightful things that could ruin not just her vacation but her life. What on earth are people thinking?

  4. Cool it! Everyone is a little over the top here. Disney keeps gators to a minimum and large gators are so rare now you just never see them on Disney property anymore, which I find disappointing but that life in the parks now.

  5. She is desperate for attention and must have a mental disorder. This is not normal behavior at kids park.

  6. With alligators known to be in rivers in Disey Word lications she didn’t think it through. Could be snakes in the waterways too
