Wow! Your poor little guy! I'm glad he's okay. But, it was really very nice of you to post your story, so that others can really be more aware of their surroundings.

Very glad to hear that he recovered so well ... scary stuff indeed.

SSB's younger brother was clearing brush in SC and all of a sudden saw a 6 foot diamond back rattler poised to strike ... bit him in the back of the knee. He was luckily with another who eventually got him to location for airlift to city hospital. His leg was the size of a watermelon and had over 40 viles of antivenom used on him while in IC for a week. They are dangerous creatures, for sure.

if it's the one I'm thinking about, yes it was in the room at Contemporary....my husband and I were talking about it last night and he said someone probably took it to the room? I also remember one at a DVC in the room where the washer and dryer are

Disneysuncat, where in Ky do you live? We are from Northern KY, just about 12 miles south of Cincy. It's a small world after all.........
Mickeyfamily, We live in Northern Ky too (in Independence). It truly is a small world!!! I don't know about you, but at least in our part of town, we typically only see garter and black snakes - nothing poisonous! How scary to think of something like this happening at Disney. I would have never thought about it before reading this! I have a 2 and a 3 year old and cannot imagine either of them having to endure something like that. How scary!

Kmgindele, we are in Burlington, not far from you at all. The week after we got back from Disney, we saw 3 snakes in our backyard. We have never seen a snake in our yard before. My poor DS thought they were after him.

We're going to CBR in 3 weeks, so I appreciate the warning/reminder to be careful. I don't know if I should mention this this to DW or not. She may get so nervous every time we're walking around, we'll need the ambulance for her. I have to admit I'm a total wimp myself when it comes to these things (snakes, spiders, etc.) - mostly due to my unfamiliarity with them. Living in NYC, the only snakes we have are the lawyers and bankers.

We bought the snake ourselves and asked the waiter to bring it out. They did upgrade us to AKL for the remainder of our stay. Disney arranged a couple of private character meetings and he was in one of the Star Wars parades. It quickly became a very low key visit. One of the side effects was that he was very tired, all the time. We could only do the parks for a few hours and then he would completely give out. He actually stayed that way for about 2 months, sleeping about 14 hours a night and taking naps in the day. There was a lot we were not able to do, so we hope to go back in a couple of years. He still has stiffness in his fingers and had a really bad nightmare just last night about snakes. He is a real trooper. When I think of how it could have turned out, we are very blessed indeed. Again thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

Your wife sounds a lot like me! LOL. But I think you should at least mention it so she is aware. That way if she happens to drop something near a bush she will be more careful.

First off, I have to say I am glad your son is doing well. What an ordeal you had to go thru on your vacation. Nobody anticipates something like that happening. It seems he was well taken care of and it is good to hear that.

Second, we are staying at CBR in 8 days and I have to say I am freaked out now

I am so glad your son is ok! That had to be so scary for your family. Could not be more pleased that thanks to your posting more people will be aware. I'm sorry if took such a horrible situation for more people to be aware of the danger.




the picture below looks like it's of an Anhinga, more commonly called a snake bird (and rightfully so, it looks like a snake rising up out of the water!) They are very common in Florida. (in fact, in most of the southern states)

When we were at CSR two years ago, there was a black cottonmouth water moccasin in the bushes next to the steps leading to the slide at the pool. It came out onto the stairs and the guard called animal control. The slide was shut down for about an hour while they waited for animal control to arrive and then search for it in the wooded area next to the slide.
And no, they didn't find it...
