Blagh, whatever it was was about the size of my palm, but I didn't keep it around long enough to determine what it was! CM's told me "oh, could have just been a wolf spider"...JUST??? Or, a litany of other creatures native to Florida, who knows. It did add to the ambiance of the ride tho.

Really, I would just convince myself that whatever it was, it came from another person on TOT! If I didn't see it, it can't be a spider!

On our honeymoon in 2005 we found a scorpion in our room at AKL. It could have been a scorpion. .

Cool

OK, the son is in Florida at WDW and is riding SM.

Then while riding SM a snake drops from parts unknown on him.

It then proceeds to bite him within the Groin area.

They find and, I assume, kill the snake.

Nothing else appears to happen until the next day when he notices that "it" is red and swollen.

He then flies home, I assume because there are no hospitals in Florida.

His mother is taking pictures of his "private" areas and sending them to random people because that's what any friend would do.

He goes to the hospital where he has a couple of surgeries and is loaded up with anti-biotics. Wouldn't anti-venom be more useful?

We all live happily ever after, but I'm sure there is a strongly worded letter headed for WDW about public safety and pain and embarrassment, etc.

Posted on the DVC Boards????

Okay this is really creepy cuz I dont like snakes. But last year we were coming out of Raiforest Cafe the one in Animal Kingdom and right by the entrance my son notice a snake we told one of the CM'S, so what they did is they got it and just put it back into the bushes thats crazy. So from now on Im gonna have a flash light and told my boys to be careful when were at the parks.

I'm always a skeptic about these things. However, back when I was a kid -- long before the advent of the Internet, I remember a story reported that a venomous snake fell into a car and bit a patron at a Missouri amusement park. Silver Dollar City -- Fire in the Hole. Fire in the Hole is basically an indoor coaster. I've always believed the story to be true, although I googled it and really could find no mention of it -- perhaps because it happened so long ago?? I'm not sure.

Anyone else remember this?

Now, no news report of a snake falling from inside an enclosed roller coaster, landing on someone and biting him? Requiring hospitalization? That seems very odd to me, indeed.
