We were on Tom Sawyer Island a few years back when someone screamed that there was an alligator. They had all the guests get down where the boats land and in no time flat three guys got that sucker. They had to be close by because they were there in minutes. The lead guy fancied himself Crocodile Dundee. He had the hat and rugged look but not the accent. He talked to all the kids and told jokes. He told us that they had been hunting that alligator every morning for a week. He said no one could spot it. But then Rope Drop and the first guests on the island looking for paint brushes and he would come out. You know why that alligator had to leave? He didn't buy a ticket! Kids were laughing like crazy. Everyone got pins and his autograph. At Grand Floridian we saw a small non-poisonous snake being removed by a cast member from the area by the workout center.
