Lane Graves, 2, was killed at the park past year.

"The lighthouse sculpture has been installed to help spread awareness of the Lane Thomas Foundation, which was established to provide assistance and support to families whose children need organ transplants", a Disney spokesperson said.

Walt Disney World is honoring the little boy from Omaha who was killed by an alligator at the Grand Floridian resort previous year with a newly unveiled sculpture.

Lane's body was found 16 hours later.

Branden Albert Wants to Un-Retire from Jacksonville Jaguars
According to the Jags official ESPN beat writer, Mike DiRocco, it's unlikely that the Jags will take the veteran back. He participated in the first three practices and was in the facility working out on fourth day of camp.

The gold brick lighthouse features two blue stars, commemorating the youngster who introduced himself saying, "I'm Lane Thomas; I'm 2".

The lighthouse is a symbol of the foundation, which aims to "create a strong base of support for families in crisis".

Lane was trying to scoop some sand on the beach when an alligator crawled out of Seven Seas Lagoon and attacked the boy. The boy's sister, Emma, was in a playpen 20 to 30 yards from the shoreline. But he was snatched by an alligator a few moments later. Witnesses tried to save him. Graves' dad jumped in and attempted to pry open the gator's jaws - with no luck - as a second gator attacked him. It added signs warning guests of reptiles in its waterways.

Some critics also questioned why alligators were present at a vacation resort popular with children.
