We had a snake in our bathroom POR. We thought it must have come into our room with the housekeepers. My girlfriend found it and was not happy. We called the front desk and they sent two CM over and they picked it up and put it in the woods. We request second floor or higher from now on.

This made me laugh so much!!! Anything bigger than an earthworm!! Thank you so much for the laugh.

I saw one @ Pop. In September. About 2 ft black, slithering toward the bushes. But, honestly. I am not really terrified of snakes per se. But, poisonous ones yes.

However, I do not even know, what I would do, if I pulled the covers back to my bed and saw a snake. I just cannot wrap my head around that thought.

Why oh why did I read THIS thread?? My DH is terrified of snakes and while I do not mind them from a distance, I do not want to encounter one close up! I will have the willies all day now. At least I have several months to forget about this,I never thought I would be so happy our trip is several months off!!!!!

I've seen a snake once in WDW, the Fantasia Gardens Mini Golf, doing the Gardens course.

I was about to take my shot and i saw from the corner of my eye this snake, black about 4ft long slither across the green into the trees.

It threw me off my game, I was leading and ended up coming last.

How soon can you make your room requests? With this continued Snake talk I am calling as soon as I can and requesting an upper floor room, even though I am terrified of heights and have very irrational fears about my children by railings of anything over 1 story. I will deal with the heights. Plus I figure if a snake wants to make the effort and climb more than one floor and get into my room and make its home.. I will take the cue and sleep in the van in the middle of the parking lot so I can see the snakes coming over the concrete.

We just returned from CSR and saw 3 snakes on 3 separate occasions. The first was at the bottom of the stairs when we came out of our room and headed down the steps. He was more afraid of us than we were of him. He was thin and about 2 feet long. The second snake was crossing the bridge going towards El Centro.... he was bigger and a black snake typical of the area. He made a quick escape over the bridge and was gone. Then my 14 year old was looing for a lizard and reached in to pick up what I thought was a little lizard and out he comes with a snake...... again, small, thin Garter snake. He was docile and just let us take a picture or 2 before my son let him go on his way.

A couple years ago, there was a very large black snake outside of our first floor POR room that my husband and oldest son still talk about.

Many people have reported seeing them in the lazy river areas of the 2 water parks, might just have to reconsider going there.

I too saw the pictures of the one at CR. I will go look for the thread. Here is a link to her blog, about 3/4 of the way down the page are the pictures, you can't see it really well, but you know it is there.

I don't mind the little critters outside... but this would definitely freak me out if I found it in my room!

Not a Snake

Never have been worried about snakes, but my DW and DD's would pass out if we had one in our room. Going to the world in June for the 4th time and will be staying at CBR, will definitely keep an eye out! Most interesting animal I've seen at a Disney resort was in 07 when we stayed at POR. On the last day of the trip, we left our room early in the morning to walk to Riverside Mill when DW stopped and told me to look at what she first thought was a large cat walking along the path. When I glanced up at it, it didnít look like a domestic cat, it looked like either a Bob Cat or Lynx, not sure which they have in FL. It was walking around like it owned the place. I followed it to take pictures, and it nonchalantly walked into the foliage. Maybe Disney brought it in to eat all the snakes!

I am like you, I can't stop reading this thread! The bad thing is I am deathly afraid of snakes. So bad I can't even watch them on TV, they give me the hebegebes ...its something to do with them not having any legs but yet can still kill me. Poisonous or not I am not hanging around to find out!!!
