Don't feed the animals, treat our visiting ducks, cats, squirrels and other animal guests with the same world-class service as our human Guests. To keep them healthy and happy, please avoid giving them food, picking them up or approaching them. Designated feeding stations have been set up with healthy food for certain animals, which also receive veterinarian checkups, vaccinations and spay/neuter procedures. By not feeding animals additional food, you can do your part to protect our furry and feathered friends.

This parade of goats lasts only a few minutes, but it leaves Guests smiling long after it's over.
