Some tragic news has broken recently about Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.
We were so very sad to to learn that a 3 year old boy has been found dead at the Art of Animation Resort on Tuesday. Absolutely heartbreaking.
The family were visiting from New York and the child got separated from his parents at which point they began searching for him. Sadly, the toddler was found under water in the main pool around 8pm. Lifeguards and other people in the area were said to be very shaken up and in tears.
Lifeguards are on duty at all pools around all of the Walt Disney World properties, but are not there all night.When lifeguards aren’t on duty, there are signs posted saying that pools are closed or that guests can swim at their own risk.
It is not known if lifeguards were on duty at the time of the child’s drowning.
Our sympathies go out to the family at this unimaginably sad time – we can’t imagine what they must be going through at the moment.
