    Don't let a crushed love bug come into contact with your clothes! Man, what a tough stain.

    My sister and I were there on a special trip in July 07 and they had to evacuate Animal Kingdom due to a bug swarm. They were these little black bugs that BIT. It was about an hour and a half before closing anyway, and they started shooing people towards the front starting at the very back. All over the park they had little first aid stands set up to help with all of the bite marks we were getting. It was quite scary and a little annoying to be bitten by all those bugs. We were trying to get out as quickly as possible. I suppose they can't control swarms like that.

    Also, I've been several days this past week and at AK and at MK we've noticed a faint pepper smell. We noticed it near the monorails at MK and we were thinking someone came through with some hot peppers or something, but then we also smelled it near Dinosar at AK. I looked all around Dinosar for the source of the hot pepper smell and couldn't find it. We were thinking that it was a particular plant creating the smell, but there were no pepper plants. Then we started thinking that it was something they sprayed to keep away bugs. Anyone that knows what it was we were smelling please let me know, I was very curious!
    For all who come to this happy place...welcome.

    Okay, not the same critters but I have seen a snake at Typhoon Lagoon. Also, last year there was a tiny mouse at Typhoon Lagoon and this really annoying kid wouldn't leave it alone. He picked it up and I told him to leave it as he was squeezing it. He got paid out, it opened it's mouth, which was bizarrely huge for the size of it, and it bit his hand. Am I evil for finding this funny?

    When I stayed at Coranado Springs, it was what the CM's called "Love Bug Season" There were these tiny flying bugs that stayed in pairs of two. They were all over the bus stop and even in our room! It was soo gross!


    When I was in Hollywood studios once, My family and I decided to eat at Pizza Planet for lunch. While eating in the upper level of the arcade/resturant my mom saw a huge rat hiding under a dirty table. She quickly threw away our food before we even knew what was going on. Once again, soo gross!

    We're going in the fall this year but we usually go in May. We're always swarmed by them when we go. Guess they have more than one mating season?

    Yep once a year the love bugs come out to play. Disney does a great job of keeping them out of your park experience but not much you can do at the resorts. They are harmless bugs but irritating none-the-less. They have been known to literally cover outdoor spaces. I vividly remember a red bench in my yard (when we lived in FL) looking black one morning and going out to find it covered with them.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Always a good subject. I've never found the bugs to be that horrible but in october when I was there, there were little lizards all over. Anywhere from like 2 inches long to about 4 inches. Geckos maybe? Mostly brown and green, some with brighter coloring. Lots of little kids trying to catch them...and me. They're fast little guys but it's rather fun to try. I almost caught one at Epcot.

    The only yucky thing is I saw a few of them dead at Pop Century from being run over by something. Also saw a TON of snails because a couple days it was very damp/rainy.

    Yep Geckos are all over the place in Florida. The house I had in Jax always had tons of them on the back deck and the resorts in Orlando are usually covered with them too... especially around breeding season.
