Snake Thread Followup Poll

After reading all about snake sightings at Disney, I'm curious ...

Also just realized that you can only pick one option for the poll. Was hoping people could pick one of each of the sets. Oh well.

Great idea! Because resort and parks are in the same poll, I could not answer...maybe a poll that has just 2 questions? "I have not seen a snake on Disney property or I have seen a snake on Disney property"? Then responders could explain in a follow-up post.

Last week at Blizzard Beach, my DH grabbed a snake in Cross Country Creek and tossed it out.

, ". th" so we went that way. Well, it was further than we thought, it was getting way too dark and we were both afraid of most everything we could think of. We ended up coming out at the very back part of Tri Circle D Ranch very close to the lake. Every cast member we saw going to their car, we were nervous, so we just kept walking. Finally got to the bus stop and went back to WL. Several days later we went back at 10 am (plenty of daylight) and asked someone at WL about going again and staying on the pavement the entire way to FW. We told her what happened and she looked at us and said we were very lucky as they are many poisonous snakes near the lakes......YIKES. Never thought of that, as we are from Maine and we have no poisonous snakes. Lesson learned. we stay on the pavement in total daylight. It is a magnificent walk !! We have seen groups of deer .,anbunnies.bunnies.and beautiful birds, butterflies and beautiful flowers

Our experience has been:

We have seen snakes at parks and resorts and at water parks.

We have seen both venomous and non

We have never seen one in a room

We have seen them near the doors to the buildings

I've seen one at WL and Pop. The first time scared the mess out of me. 2nd time it scared the mess out of the British lady ahead of me so I had warning and was more calm.

Much easier for me to say, "NO!"
Hope I can squeeze it in!

I've seen a green snake swimming in the Hippy Dippy pool at POP! Lifeguard just netted it and let it loose outside the pool area. It's Florida, it's tropical...of course there are snakes!

Saw 2 at POR this past trip. But thats not that weird, I dont think. We live in OH, and had saw one a foot behind me as I sat on a bench. So if it happens here I am sure it happens a ton in Florida.
