Disneyland visitors got more adventure than they bargained for when a flock of geese let go in flight, fouling the guests. Anaheim police and fire officials say 17 people, including six children, were hit by bird droppings just before 9 p.m. Friday. A hazardous materials team was sent to Main Street near the Sleeping Beauty Castle after a report that feces had been thrown on people. It was quickly determined the real culprit was a flock of geese flying overhead. Authorities say the smeared visitors were taken to a private restroom to clean up and were given with clean clothes. Police reported that the guests were “healthy and happy” after the event.
