Note to self: avoid the big boats!
I hate spiders!!

Most of them are just about the size of the tip of a pinky finger, the biggest I've seen on the boats are about the size of a quarter (legs included.) They are normally contained by the windows. The thing that creeps me out is they are hanging over my head. I hate that!

I'll contend with the spiders any day over the refugee bus system. Heck,it's one of the reasons we stay at the WL more often than not. (the boats that is). We love taking them to MK and FW on a regular basis.

With that said, I remember a similar thread as this form over a year ago when we had just come back. I can honestly say I don't think I saw any more spiders or bugs on the boats than I've seen on a bus or monorail. Silly to worry about.
