In over 10 visits at various resorts including WL, Pop, POFQ, ASMU, ASMO, ASSP, and BC, I've never seen a snake or a gator anywhere on Disney property and I've been at different tomes of the year too. I'm hoping I never do! I used to ask for a ground floor room but no more! I would have a heart attack if I found a snake in our room!

We've seen a gator at POR in the river by the bridge between the main building and Mangolia(I think or maybe Terrace can't remember the name of the building) and we've seen a few little snakes in the Aligator Bayou.

Seen many snakes here in VA but none down in WDW. I am also among the people who would have a heart attack if I found one in my room!

I live in Prince William County, VA and we have been having a snake problem at my house for the last three years. We have caught seven snakes in our basement now I think. I am beginning to lose count!! Two were babies but one of the ones we caught last summer was at least 5 feet long!!! Our next door neighbor also caught one in his basement last summer. We know they hang out by our front door and somehow come in thru our laundry room but we don't know exactly how or how to make them relocate away from the front door.

There was a snake twice in our pool at the Wilderness Lodge. I also saw a venomous snake that bit someone when swimming at the beach in the campground a long time ago. They closed the beach for swimming after that and I also think that's why they don't use River Country. It's just too hard to control that area.

No, it was because of the lake water not being fit to swim in (sure they had other reasons, but don't think snakes figured into the closures ).

Haven't seen any snakes at FW , and we've been going there for years. I am terrified of them. I'm sure they are there, but just hope I never encounter one!

I've only seen one in the past thirteen trips, although I'm not so naive as to believe there haven't been any others!

This little guy was in the main pool at POR one evening when our kids were taking a swim before bed.

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.
