While visiting Walt Disney World Resort’s four parks, Guests can experience world-class entertainment and fan-favorite attractions, interact with some of their favorite characters, and enjoy delicious food and beverage offerings.
Plus, because Walt Disney World Resort is such a huge open space, visitors may even encounter wildlife, and we’re not talking about the animals in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Between the trees, flowers, shrubs, ponds and even waterfalls, it’s no wonder the local wildlife decides to visit Mickey Mouse and try to explore the parks and resorts with the guests.

Many guests have encountered birds, geese, rabbits, cranes, alligators, ducks and, of course, squirrels. Disney World has signs posted at theme parks and resorts advising visitors not to pet or interact with these animals, as they are not trained to interact with humans and are not pets. However, some of these curious visitors have become accustomed to being around humans and inevitably become overconfident.

So much so that a guest recently caught a squirrel shamelessly stealing a stroller from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. TwirlingTeaCup (@twirlingteacup) released the video with a public service announcement, reminding its viewers to never leave food in their strollers.

While the video is funny and quite adorable, it’s essential to remember that guests should not feed or attempt to interact with any wildlife in the Disney parks, or anywhere for that matter. As mentioned earlier, there is a reason warning signs are posted in parks.
Additionally, feeding human food to wild animals is not ideal for their health, and artificial food can change animal habits. For the safety of guests and animals, we urge our readers to refrain from touching or feeding wildlife. And if an animal gets too close, we advise guests to move away and notify a nearby Cast Member, as they are better prepared to deal with any situation that may arise.
