I grew up in New England and moved to Louisiana when I was 13. Saw creepy crawlies I never had before. There IS a difference between a German Roach and Palmetto or "water bugs" as people here usually call them. As others have said WDW is in Florida. No way too avoid certain native species. The little tree frogs at POR like to cling on the wall and on the outside of the doors at night and tried to come in with us when we came back to our room at night. Just part of being in the South!
