Disney’s Animal Kingdom isn’t the only place guests might spot fun wildlife. An otter was seen today at Disney Springs.
The otter was swimming by the Paddlefish restaurant in Lake Buena Vista, a waterway connected to the Sassagoula River and several other rivers and lakes.
If you’re having trouble finding the otter, here’s a zoomed-in version of the photo:

River otters aren’t uncommon in Orlando lakes and ponds. Otters primarily eat fish and they regularly seek out new territory. It’s possible this otter reached Disney Springs through a drainage pipe or just via land. They aren’t generally a threat, though may attack if provoked, so should be left alone and only handled by professionals.
