With a month now having passed since the alligator incident at Walt Disney World, slowly some of the items removed for fear of offending guests are starting to return to the resort.

Earlier this week, the crocodile portion of the Electrical Water Pageant was returned to service. The scene features lights in the shape of a crocodile performing to the tune of “Never Smile at a Crocodile” from Walt Disney’s Peter Pan.

Reportedly, Louis the Alligator from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog will finally start appearing in the Mickey’s Royal Friendship Fair show at the Magic Kingdom. He was slated to debut in the show when it began on June 17th, but since that was just a few days after the attack, Disney decided to temporarily cut him from the new show. He should debut any day now.

Are the real and/or animatronic alligators still in Living with the Land pavilion? I believe there was an effort already afoot to remove the living alligators as they were removed from the narration over a year ago.

I rode today. The real alligators are still there but the animatronics are not.

I’m really surprised that the alligator returned to the Electrical Water Pageant. I assumed it would be gone forever. It’s just a little too on the nose.

I’m glad they have returned. I don’t think having them there is insensitive at all. We cannot remove everything that offends everyone. It was completely fitting that they were temporarily removed but also completely fitting that they were returned.
