A few weeks ago, Disney announced that they would be erecting a lighthouse sculpture at Walt Disney World to honor the memory of Lane Thomas, the little boy who lost his life to an alligator last summer in the Seven Seas Lagoon. It appears that construction of the memorial icon has begun and it will be located near where the incident occurred at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
Construction walls have been erected on the left side of the beach, near the steps that lead down to the sand.
A look over the walls (which isn’t hard because the elevated concrete walkway is about the same height) reveals that the foundation is already in place. Since the sculpture is most likely a prefabricated piece created offsite, it will likely be in place very soon.
Disney did not list a completion date for the project, but simply stated that it would be erected this summer.
