The Running of the Goats at Disneyland Park

You may have heard of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, but did you know we have our own goat version almost every day at Disneyland park?

The Disneyland goat herd, numbering 13 goats, spend their days at the Petting Farm at Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland. Between naps, they welcome guests with their calm demeanor and somewhat bewitching eyes. But when “quitting time” comes, the energy level goes up quite a bit. With dinner on their minds, they scoot over the hill to Circle D Ranch, where supper awaits them.

Next time you’re in Disneyland park around sunset, be sure to stop by and witness this adorable bunch scamper home! In the meantime, you can catch the “goat running” in the video below.


  • I LOVE the goats! They are always the first thing I go to when I’m at the Park. Can’t wait to see the babies. Gene, cast member at Big Thunder Ranch Goats, is the best! She has taught us quite a bit about goats. Those goats are so funny.
