Recently a guest had a surprising addition to their Disney experience: spotting poop at a Disney park, in the middle of the street.

Visiting any of the theme parks is a magical experience for most puests. There are myriad options to choose from to make that visit truly unforgettable: iconic attractions — think Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, — to immersive experiences like the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Occasionally though, a guest will witness an incredibly rare sight for a Disney park, that takes sensory immersion to unnecessary levels, such as finding poop from a trolley horse in the middle of Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park.

While visiting, Reddit user u/DarthBlonde shared a post captioned “Often not seen at Disney~horse poop.”

Typically, Disney is incredibly quick to respond to situations like this and takes the cleanliness of their theme parks very seriously. Most guests will attest to the fact that no matter the Park — Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort— they’re all usually kept clean.

In situations involving the famous Disney horses, usually, a cast member follows close behind the horses to pick up any substances so that Guests won’t step in them, but it seems this time the sanitization team was just a little on the later side.

One-off clean-up mishap aside, the draft horses, and the Main Street, U.S.A. trolleys are an exciting sight and a lovely experience at Disneyland.

This is how Disneyland details the experience:

Climb into a classic chassis and sit back and relax as you are transported from one end of Main Street, U.S.A. to the other.

Our vintage vehicles include:

  • Horse-Drawn Street Car, an old-fashioned trolley pulled by a horse
  • Jitney, an early automobile without a roof
  • Fire Engine, a replica of the very first fire trucks
  • Omnibus, a gas-powered, open-air 2-story bus

Come experience a jaunty journey from a bygone era!

Reportedly, the Disney horses are well-loved and even treated like fellow cast members at Disney. The horses and ponies all receive a balanced diet, daily baths, grooming, dental care, vaccinations, regular full physical exams, and new horseshoes every five to six weeks. They even have their own oversized Cast Member name tags in Disneyland’s Circle D Ranch‘s tack room.

The horses are cared for such that they don’t come out when it’s too hot or too crowded; their needs are as important as any other cast member.

This unusual incident notwithstanding, the Disney theme park horses are just as much a part of the Disney experience as guests’ favorite attractions, even if that means dealing with the rare mid-morning surprise.
