Agreed, and the new media monitors the ambulance and police calls, so they would have been all over this kind of thing!

Sorry, while the OP was well spoken and while its a far out there story,its not totally unbelievable. But without a real news media back up it just did not happen!

That's how I felt... I mean, when the monorail breaks down, Twitter is all abuzz so I would imagine that once word got out that there were snakes in space, people would be even zanier!

Not to mention if OP's friend's son was bit by a snake and it was caught soon after, I would imagine that Disney suits would insist he got to the hospital as a safeguard. Heck, my DD was brushed by a pod of leave that fell from a tree that gave her hives (she has severe tree allergies) and we went to First Aid to get some Benedryl. The nurse wouldn't let her go until we saw how she reacted to the Benedryl and the hives were cleared and we signed a paper saying we didn't feel further care was necessary. Disney called us that night and the next AM to make sure she was okay... and that was for nothing more than a group of leaves brushing her shoulder!

*I just saw you said ToT...there's probably mice in there too!
And unlimited fast passes for Space Mountain

The scorpion story now has me officially freaked out.

I didn't want to tell this story as it brings back some truly painful memories. But back in the fall of 2002, our jungle cruise capsized. No big deal right? Just swim to shore right?

Problem was I saw something slithering around me. It was slimy, black, and HUGE! Turns out it was an anaconda. I grabbed a large branch that happened to be floating nearby.. as the anaconda tried to devour me, I put the branch in its mouth to prevent it from biting down on me. Luckily that worked, and I was able to make it to shore.

Certainly makes me think twice before climbing aboard the Jungle Cruise...

She did. She dropped straight out of the sky and helped me wrestle the anaconda into submission.

At this point I'm not worried about the Anaconda, the thought of aspirating any of that old, nasty, greenish/yellowish water scares me more!

I'm surprised Jack Sparrow didn't swing by on a vine and rescue you, you know he's right next door!

j-lo has always been willing to help those in need. She's nice like that. And conveniently around when you need her. Especially after those nasty jungle cruise capsizings. Thanks j-lo!

There was a woman found unconscious at the end of her Space Mountain ride back in May, 2011 maybe she was bitten by a snake!

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

I didn't even look to see what it was, I threw it forward as hard as I could. We were in the dark at the time and I still didn't see what it was. It wasn't as big as a mouse, but if it was a spider it was a BIIIG spider!

Never forgot it.

Edited to add - whoa, sounds like another story on page 3!!! Watch out on ToT!!!
N.O.T. O.K.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, I would DIE.
