No it was a gator as everyone was looking at him, it just happen that he liked the New foam bobber that the kids were using as the bobbers were bright pink and bright orange. He kept going for them. We took him out of the water, he was walking. No it was a gator. lol

Thank you all I am going to be so paranoid the whole 10 days I'm at WDW!! At least we are at AK and there haven't been a lot of reports there. I see one I might die of a heart attack or I'll need meds to calm me down. Either way it wouldn't be pretty.

We found one in our garage last year. I was walking out to get something and it crawled in front of me. I ran out of the house screaming and crying hysterically. My neighbors thought something was seriously wrong. I called 911 and much to my dismay they don't deal with snakes...and yes that seems a little much but in my defense I had no clue what to do... I had just moved south so hadn't seen many snakes and I am DEATHLY afraid. Long story short a neighbor down the road came a killed it and I cried hysterically. I'm still afraid and to the point of tears even thinking about it. Ugh...maybe we won't be going to Disney anymore. I head this thread!

I never want a 1st floor room lol. We were 2nd floor at POFQ this past March and I was leaning on balcony looking at the pool and this giant 5foot black snack slithered its nasty rotten self out of the bushes and onto the walkway! Then it put its rotten self right into the bush right in front of a room!
Can you request no 1st floor rooms??!?

I always request no 1st floor rooms and always get them. Snakes were not on my mind when I first started doing this, but last year at POFQ we had a close encounter with one of those 5 ft long black snakes. We came out of our room, hopping and skipping down the stairs and my DD was within inches of stepping on one of them lying half in the bushes, partly in the walkway.

We saw another one the same waiting for the bus a few days later. It bugged me more that I didn't know what kind of snake it was to be honest. It looks like those little black serpents are quite comfy at POFQ

I don't think the level of the room makes much of a difference. I found a black racer in our tree. He was right at eye level with me. At first I thought it was a branch, until he moved. YIKES! That was in April, thankfully I haven't seen any since. They are just as afraid of us as we are of them. Unless we get close to their nest, they don't want anything to do with us. They will protect their territory.

Really wish I hadn't read this thread and hoping that I forget about all this icky stuff before our trip in Feb. Of course being from GA I'm always cautious of snakes but I still hate them and don't want to see them.

Why do I want to see this and record it? I can't stop laughing thinking about your husband shaking his head while you throw pillows at the curtains Tell your husband to record you throwing the pillows so everyone on DIS can laugh
