First time @ Disney World - Bugs Question

Too soon. Still.

I did see a snake there once. We were at Eagle Pines golf course. Thankfully, I was in the cart. Whew! That was close.

Hahahahaha … oh my. I live in Tennessee where the critters are almost as plentiful, varied, and creepy as in Florida. Just the other day, as I was coming up our front walk, the “garden hose” lying on the sidewalk all of the sudden slithered off. I think I woke the entire neighborhood, and my DH nearly pee’d himself laughing at me. I almost needed CPR …

But Florida has Palmetto bugs. Oh my :scream: goodness. We were staying in New Smyrna Beach many, many years ago, in a high rise condo on the beach, on the 12th floor, when I had my first encounter with one. I did a flat-footed leap from the floor to the back of the sofa, and I was 7 1/2 months pregnant!

I am a walking mosquito gourmet buffet usually. They :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: me to death! But I have never been bitten at all in any of our trips to WDW, which is utterly amazing.

I’ve lived in Australia for 30 years and grew on farms. Almost all of our snakes are venomous, not just a handful like in Florida! I’ve also managed to not be killed by any of the deadly spiders, sharks, crocs, dingoes fish, jellyfish, octopus, stingrays, scorpions… Probably forgot something else dangerous…
I think you’ll be fine.

I had a great vacation in Australia back in 2002. Before I left I read horror stories of funnel web spiders in your shoes and so on.

Had a great time, never saw a bug or snake or spider of any kind. Got bitten more the other night at home in the UK (by mosquitos) than I did in three weeks in Australia.

Not to mention the new flesh-eating sea fleas that were on the news yesterday :fearful:

If you made it out of Australia without ever seeing a Huntsman spider… bless you my child, the bug gods are clearly in your favor.
