Really?

When I saw this posted, I had to call my Uncle who has worked for Disney for over 20yrs. He is in the legal department and is often the "first contact" when accidents happen in any of the parks.
I remember as a kid many times while we were visiting he would get called away and have to handle incidents where a guest was injured. I remember once he had to go handle a situation where a guest from anouther country got severly burned when a portion of the old electrical parade came in contact with this poor lady.
I asked him about a snake bite on Space Mountain and he said that as long as he has worked there no one has ever been bitten by a snake on this ride.
So as far as I am concerned, this is a bogus post.
Until I see an actual incident report from Disney I call BULL!!

How do you know? There's actually "no way" you can prove it didn't happen. It was just as likely to happen, as not likely to happen...

It may be unbelieveable, but it's completely possible, and while it maybe can't be proved, it can't be proven it didn't happen.... Just b/c a CM didn't know ... Do you really think Disney lets every little intern know what's going on there?

Someone also questioned that where'd the snake go, the original OP post said they had to shut down the ride and found it dead at the bottom. No, it doesn't die from biting, but could possibly from falling.

I could very well not be true, but it could also just as easily be true, it's not really all that far fetched, just because it wasn't on the local news. If disney didn't want the details out, they probably had a pretty goood hold on keeping them in. They make billions of dollars, lol....

However, I do like the "this is a plot to make shorter lines" theory, lol!!!

I was there in July.

This is hard to talk about but... here goes.

I was at Epcot and sitting outside eating some french fries. And...a squirrel. He ran up my leg to get to my fries. And when he ran past my lap....

Well...he touched me. He invaded my personal space. I have been molested by a squirrel.

Now I am so ashamed. Whenever I see a squirrel I get a funny feeling "down there".

So beware of squirrels!

How do you know that little squirrel was after those fries and not something else?

Actually, no. The likelihood of a snake NOT dropping from the ceiling of Space Mountain is much much greater than that it did.

I heard from my neighbors brothers cousins sisters Pilates instructors parole officer that this kind of thing happens all of the time at Toy Story Mania. So... everyone should avoid that ride...

There is a twitter account called 'Cats of Disneyland'... someone needs to start one titled 'Snakes of Space Mountain'.

Ok, to be serious, I contacted my friend Beth who's daughter is currently working at SPM in the CP. She was on from 7-4 the past two weeks with Thursday and Sunday as her days off and she said that this did not happen on her shift, nor did she even hear of this happening from other SPM CM's. She rooms with two others and they know nothing about it either.
