Also just realized that you can only pick one option for the poll. Was hoping people could pick one of each of the sets. Oh well.

By the way the poll says "Disney Parks". We have staied at FW many times and I have seen two snakes over the years. Both were in the canals.

Great idea! Because resort and parks are in the same poll, I could not answer...maybe a poll that has just 2 questions? "I have not seen a snake on Disney property or I have seen a snake on Disney property"? Then responders could explain in a follow-up post.

I was going to do that but can't seem to edit the poll now.

Last week at Blizzard Beach, my DH grabbed a snake in Cross Country Creek and tossed it out.

Last trip to the GF, DW and I got quite a few pictures of an aligator n the water just outside of our "outer building" room overlooking the water.

We halso had a picture of what "I believe" was a water moccasin imming along the rocks at the shoreline.I will see if I can find the pictures.

It's Florida....So expect this every trip.

I found this thread and thought I would share. On our last trip in September, we were going to lunch at the WCC, Wilderness Lodge, and while strolling up from the bus stop to the doors to enter the resort, an employee stopped us and warned us that a baby snake was crawling across the cement just ahead. Sure enough, as we walked a little further, there it was making it's way to the other side where the grassy area was. It didn't bother us, and we surely didn't bother it. However, I thought that it was crazy because prior to the trip I had read some snake sighting reports.

I am terrified of snakes and was thankful that last year on our trip, I did not see any. However, when we were at Pop last week, I saw one in the bushes. Thankfully, there was already a couple there taking pictures of it, so I had a bit of a warning.

I don't want to stay on a ground level floor for this reason. I am really trying to convince hubby that we should stay at the Poly next trip, but the lush vegetation worries me a little.

Not one has been the least interested in people though!

, ". th" so we went that way. Well, it was further than we thought, it was getting way too dark and we were both afraid of most everything we could think of. We ended up coming out at the very back part of Tri Circle D Ranch very close to the lake. Every cast member we saw going to their car, we were nervous, so we just kept walking. Finally got to the bus stop and went back to WL. Several days later we went back at 10 am (plenty of daylight) and asked someone at WL about going again and staying on the pavement the entire way to FW. We told her what happened and she looked at us and said we were very lucky as they are many poisonous snakes near the lakes......YIKES. Never thought of that, as we are from Maine and we have no poisonous snakes. Lesson learned. we stay on the pavement in total daylight. It is a magnificent walk !! We have seen groups of deer .,anbunnies.bunnies.and beautiful birds, butterflies and beautiful flowers
