Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Pool Adds Net and ‘No Climbing’ Sign After Child Was Rescued From Decorative Pyramid

Following a video of a child being rescued from the top of the pyramid near the Dig Site Pool at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, the feature now has a net and a “no climbing” sign.

The net covers the lower branches to hopefully impede someone from climbing them.

Do you think this change at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort pool will prevent another climbing incident? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Considering the kid that climbed them was probably not old enough to read, no I don’t think it would have prevented the incident that occurred.

    Hopefully, they can get a better looking sign long term if they’re set on that. While it was not a good thing to happen, such measures were never needed before. Odds of it repeating anytime soon, I’d say, are low – even without any changes at all.

    1. Not the CHILDs job. It’s the parent job ONLY tired of parents think cast members are babysitters.

  2. How about you keep a closer eye in your kids?? Raised four children and never had to worry about my kids doing this because we actually watched them. Put down your phones and play with your kids. You won’t regret it!

  3. Saw the same thing happen about five years ago. Mother no where to be found. We alerted the life guard and he had to climb up to get the boy. When finally located Mom didn’t even thank the life guard – just grabbed the child and walked away. Raised four of our own and always had them in sight especially around a pool. I agree put the phones away, they grow up too soon.

  4. This is rediculous. The kid clearly climbed up from the back or the side. Otherwise, the lifeguards should be fired for not doing their job. Did they just not see the kid climbing up the side of the pyramid?
    It’s a lit easier to climb up from the back and sides.

    1. Life guard job is in the water not the decoration. Parent should have been arrested for endangerment.

    2. The lifeguard’s job is to watch the water not the pyramid. If a lifeguard starts watching everything, who is watching the people in the water where in a mere second a child could drown from one misplaced jump into the pool? It is the parent’s job to watch the child. If you bring a child to Disney, be a parent and make memories, don’t be a phone obsessed alcoholic.
