There is a bridge with real aligators for guests to cross at AK?

I just saw on the Disney Channel that you can cross a bridge with real gators beneath you? When did this happen? I never saw that the last time we went...

Pretty sure it's part of a tour, at additional cost.

I'm pretty sure it's part of the Wild Africa Trek tour at the Animal Kingdom.

We saw a little gator last year in the water in Frontierland (the "Rivers of America" used by the Liberty Square Riverboat. We were walking along the walkway that goes along the Frontierland street looking over the edge. Exciting!

Actually, they are crocodiles and the rope bridge is part of the Wild Africa Trek.
