How am I supposed to enjoy my vacation if I'm worrying about snakes the whole time? I've never worried about snakes down there before. I guess since I joined this forum I started worrying

I hate snakes. I've never seen one at Disney World all the times I've been there and I hope my luck continues in May.

I've ridden ToT a lot, too (and plan to many more times in 50 days time)....however, I am now a little skeeved. Not so much by the spider (or whatever it was), but by the fact IT CLUNG to your hand. Spiders eat insects therefore, to me, they are beneficial....but I still don't want something clinging on to my hand. ew

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

Just because something is unlikely to happen doesn't mean it won't. It was very unlikely that a little child reaching for a toy under a shrub right beside a resort sidewalk would be bitten by a rattlesnake. But it happened.


Actually that isn't really all that unlikely, and as far as the Earth being round, there is enough proof of that where one has no reason to not believe I can't say the same for the OP's story.


OP, I was there a few weeks ago and spent 3 of my days at MK, and it wasn't closed at all then. What was the date of the incident?

While the hospital and Disney might not have held national press conferences about this, it would have gotten around. How many people per car in Space Mountain? 6 right? (Sorry, I'm a frequent Lander and I get the two SM confused.) So there were 5 other people in the cars, and 2.5 of them probably would have ran off and told their family, and the wildfire would have began. The DisBoards would have heard about it before it reached Frontierland on the rumorphone.

But, with HIPPA, I don't think hospitals go out of their way to issue press releases, and Disney would rather say nothing publically about any injury.
Oh, I didn't mean a hospital would release it. I meant every time something happens where the Sentinel can use DISNEY in the title, they do.

I don't know!! It happened so fast that I had launched it through the air before really stopping to think about it! Maybe I threw it at YOU; it hit me on the first drop, and I squealed like a little girl confronted with Justin Bieber and just tossed it as fast as I could. In spite of its tiny, grasping appendages. I was in the last row....

I have bad spider luck too; that's why I block this incident out as much as I can. If that was a spider.... it was like half the size of a mouse. And grabby.
