And I was freaking out in 2004 when my friends and I met a beetle in our room!

I tought I didn't mind snakes, but this thread is a bit much.

Hubby had a snake slither in front of him while he was walking during our stay at the Poly. He debated about telling me, knowing I'd go into panic mode. He did tell me and I did freak a little, but being on an upper level room and also having a corridor helped calm me a bit, just a bit! We once switched rooms at ASMo because of a VERY LARGE palmetto bug that decided to crawl into the vent. Nah, wasn't staying there overnight. We were doing the Christmas party that night and by the time we returned, it was near midnight. We were switching rooms at midnight with two toddlers. I've never had a first floor room since. I now ask for the highest level in hopes of avoiding snakes, lizards and other flying bug "objects" invading our room!!

When I said something to them, the parents pretty much told me to mind my own business...which maybe I should have been doing anyway.
Yes, I saw this, too. My DD8 had clear, specific instructions to keep clear of the banks. I don't mind snakes, but what is with the freakin' huge spiders in FL? I'm from Ohio. Our spiders die in the winter time? Give me a snake anyday!

I found two tiny lizards in my room at Sports early one morning, hanging out on the back of the door... Didn't see any snakes, thankfully.

After reading this I am definitely keeping my eyes open. I have to admit I did have a few good laughs reading the stories. If we ever found one in our room we would leave everything behind and just go home with the clothes on our back. No way do I want to bring one home as a souvenier.
The worst thing I ever saw at WDW was a bat sleeping near the trash can MANY MANY MANY years ago

I have never seen a snake at CBR but I did see an alligator. I saw a snake at POFQ last year. Hope not to see another one again.

Can more people who AREN'T seeing snakes post? :P I've already decided to not stay at Pop (to be farther away from water) and stay at Music (far less slithery sightings). There's got to be thousands who DON'T see any, right? lol Please say yes! Between this and the Bed Bug thread I'll be needing S.W.A.T gear to check our room. lol

I stayed at POR and saw NARRY a Snake and it's right on water. You can see snakes anywhere. Don't fret over the possibility you might see a snake. There's more bugs in FL than snakes!
