    Trust me. No one on this earth is more afraid of snakes than I, no one. And yes. I've seen a couple of snakes at Disney. One was a tiny one quite far ahead of me, so nothing to do but stand away and go into hyper panic and funny breathing.

    The other had it's head poked up from the edge of the boardwalk, and I know I entertained people for miles with my response to that one. I STILL will not walk along the edges of the boardwalk for that very reason.

    I also saw one at the Vero Beach resort once.

    So yes, you may see one, but I must admit it's really, really rare. Please try not to worry about it, ok?

    A snake did cross the path right in front of us at AK a couple of years back but it just went on it's way....didn't even look at us.

    Well I'm a snake fan, always been fascinated ever since I was young.. .all except the cottonmouth which I saw really go for someone, and keep going, at a show where I was sitting WAAAY too close. So I revised my policy a bit for those evil things

    I've seen a few, never in heavily populated areas like Tink has seen them at, but I've seen them when I've crossed over from the swan to the golf course and took shortcuts across the grass there.. and it wasn't small either but then again, it also ran away. I also tried to take a short cut back to the yacht club once (you can see my failing can't you ) and as I was half way around, the sprinkler system turned on and apart from getting soaked, I also saw two snakes on the path ahead of me.

    All in all, I think if you're really frightened of them, avoid doing what I did, stick to the paths and I can't imagine having any problem at all/

    That really is the way most of them go. They are on the move usually and keep moving. I've never seen one just sunning itself. That would totally freak me right out!

    Yes. Very good points (although the two I saw were in heavily populated areas) do not go forging your own path! Keep out of heavy underbrush and long grass. I don't honestly even like to walk across large expanses of long grass. I just KNOW they are lurking in there somewhere, but then as I said. I'm a complete freak when it comes to being afraid of snakes.

    Oh great. Thanks for the warning. I'll be keeping a hawkeye out now, when I get over there! (Can you believe I've not been to AK to do EE yet)?

    Yes, I know! It's just that we've been so busy that any time we get to go to WDW we head right for the WS.
