Two snakes, one visit

LOL, my sister just got back from a week at WDW staying at Caribbean Beach Resort and during her stay she ran into two snakes.

First time her and her husband were just outside their room sitting at some tables with umbrellas on them when a snake came slithering out from the shrubs and came to rest near the table. Sister freaked out and ran into the room and curled up into a ball on the bed. Husband had to go get their room changed to second floor.

Very next day they were walking out to the parking lot on a sidewalk when another snake crossed in front of them. This time she just hid behind her husband.

I found it hilarious as he was telling the story.

You can tell her she was lucky it wasn't an alligator instead of a snake. My husband has seen a snake exit the lazy river at Typhoon Lagoon and go into the bushes along the side. We saw a rather large black racer in the bushes near the Grandstand bus stop at SSR. There were several birds attacking it, probably because it was getting close to their nest.

Oh lordy - I would have dropped dead on the spot.

I know its ridiculous but that is my biggest fear. I know there are snakes there but if I actually saw one, they'd be scraping my corpse up off the sidewalk.

Last year we came across a couple of them (within 1/2 hour of each other) near run off rapids at Blizzard Beach ... The CM's were very quick to wrangle and remove them.

Most people have to pay deluxe prices at AKL for that kind of brush with nature.

We just got back last night and --- we saw a rat at EPCOT!


Not complaining - anyplace with all those people and all that garbage, I guess it's not surprising. But I did scream!

Ran into a snake at POR in Dec. 2011. We were staying in the AB section, in one of the buildings that's really far away from the main building. Walking from our room to the parking lot, a snake slithered out of the bushes on one side and started to cross the path. We stopped and looked at the snake; the snake stopped in the middle of the path and looked at us. We had quite the standoff going. Finally the snake ended up crossing the path and slid into the bushes on the other side. That's when DH got brave and decided to stop by the bushes to take a picture of it. Not me - I was way down the path by then.

We've seen snakes at wdw before. No big deal for dh or myself we aren't afraid of snakes. Now the giant jumping spiders in Dom Rep, THAT still gives me nightmares.

I am way more afraid of rats than snakes but to be honest I really don't want to see either

I went to the car one night to get something out of the glove box while we were staying at CSR. What comes wandering out of the bushes but.. an armadillo! While it was kind of neat, I do prefer a little more distance between myself and the local wildlife.

Oh heck - my husband would have tried to make friends with those snakes! He would have been telling me to take pictures or videos!

Been to Disney World over 60 times and have never seen a snake. Alligators, check. Wild turkey, yep. Armadillos, you betcha. Deer? Yes, three of them running under the monorail. Plus dozens of ducks, coots, ibises, bunnies, cormorants, turtles, fish, eagles, and osprey. Part of the reason we love Disney World - it's a nature preserve.
