Last trip to the GF, DW and I got quite a few pictures of an aligator n the water just outside of our "outer building" room overlooking the water.

We halso had a picture of what "I believe" was a water moccasin imming along the rocks at the shoreline.I will see if I can find the pictures.

It's Florida....So expect this every trip.

Where is the poster who said they had one in their room? Details please

I've seen snakes at the resorts on numerous occasions, but never seen one in a park. I wonder if the higher volume of traffic and activity in the parks keeps them well away from the main areas?

Ah well, as others have said, it's Florida. We all know they are there

Someone in the other snake sighting thread had one in his bed and someone else had one on a curtain rod with a nest. That totally freaked me out (severely!).

We saw black ones daily at POFQ on our walk from our room to the pool and main building.

the "snake guy" was going crazy last May at Asmo. When I was out walking around at night there was a black racer right around the corner in the walkway. He was enjoying a puddle. I actually don't think of booking any of the "lusher" resorts because of venomous snakes along the pathways in the dense foliage. While we visited Asmu, the staff was getting a gator out of the bushes that was right near the walkway!

I have never seen a snake, but I also have seen an Alligator! It was at Fort Wilderness in a lake by the campfire sing-a-long.

Our daughter saw a small black snake slither into the foliage in the courtyard at the CBR. We also saw a large snake in MouseGears at Epcot. I have pictures somewhere. Let me see if I can find them and I'll post them.

We saw one last April at Blizzard Beach on the cement pathway near the kiddie section. It wasn't very big and it was black.

I found this thread and thought I would share. On our last trip in September, we were going to lunch at the WCC, Wilderness Lodge, and while strolling up from the bus stop to the doors to enter the resort, an employee stopped us and warned us that a baby snake was crawling across the cement just ahead. Sure enough, as we walked a little further, there it was making it's way to the other side where the grassy area was. It didn't bother us, and we surely didn't bother it. However, I thought that it was crazy because prior to the trip I had read some snake sighting reports.

Yes I've seen snakes at Disney. I didn't want to see them.

Yikesey yikes, yikes, yikes! Can't believe we've been to WDW twice in recent years and none of this ever even occurred to me. I have to say that this trip will likely be a little less enjoyable as I'll no doubt be paranoid about snakes!

These were taken when we were in Disney in May. Sorry for the quality of the pictures. To say that we were shocked to see a snake in Mouse Gears with hundreds of guests is an understatement:















Animal Control came in after about 10 minutes or so:











I asked what kind of snake it was and the castmember told me it was a corn snake and would not have harmed anyone. It certainly scared the heck out of a lot of guests including me!

I'm not afraid of snakes, but I wouldn't want to find one in my room, lol.

I saw two on our first trip to POFQ back in 2006. One was near the laundry room, he wasn't very big. The second was in the river when we were on our way DTD, and he was huge!
