Thanks so much for sharing that. We are traveling 6/16-24 and staying at CBR - I will definitely tell my little guy (DS 6) not to put his hands in the bushes. Additionally, we will all (try) to stay alert for critters! I wouldn't even have thought of encountering either gators or snakes! My husband grew up in Orlando. Although he hasn't lived there in quite some time, hopefully his "FL instincts" will kick in! Glad your son is OK - that is very scary! I wonder: There is so much water all around WDW, is this something you should look out for all over the world?
