I actually thought I might have just tossed it on to someone else.

Man, I'm glad I don't know what it was. Because it certainly didn't feel like a mouse (and I've handled quite a few of those). But it was awful grippy.

Well, you know... Those people who went up in the elevator many years ago, on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed- Probably haunt the elevator. Grabbing people is the only way they get their kicks!
My money is on the nanny- she looks mean!

This whole snake thing sounds like a hoax set up by Jimmy Kimmel!

I wonder if the snake was twerking too???

Theory on the grabby TOT monster - maybe lizards? Those little guys are everywhere down there and I could see them getting up the hallway to the unload area and into a car where they just chill until they go flying up into the air on the drop...and they're clingy. So I'm hoping that's it and will refuse to believe anything else until after my trip - I can handle flying attack lizards but not spiders!

Now, I never thought of it possibly being a lizard, but it very well could have been!!

As a zookeeper that works with herps, this post is hilarious. Very witty!

A venomous bite would need immediate attention. By the OPs description, it sounds like a spider bite.

As for TOT, I could definitely picture a lizard.

The more I think about it, the more I think I could have been a tree frog. 1/2 the size of a mouse and you can definitely feel feet and toes in your hand.

I loathe myself for reading this thread six days before I leave for WDW. Snakes and mice and spiders and lizards and god knows what else falling on you during a ride? I would have never imagined that possibility. I would lose my mind!

Forgot to post when we returned last week.... I am happy to report that no snakes fell in my lap on space mountain and thankfully no wolf spiders attacked me on TOT! Phew! Lol! And don't think I didn't look up every time we rode TOT to make sure nothing was hanging out up there... I checked well! Lol!
