The happiest place on earth didn't exactly live up to its name for 17 guests Friday night. The 11 adults and six juveniles were hit with fecal matter at Disneyland, and initial reports came in that someone might have thrown it at them, causing a hazmat team to respond, an Anaheim police sergeant tells CBS LA.

However, it was soon determined that the poor unfortunate souls had actually been hit with goose poop from geese that were flying over the California theme park at the time, the Orange County Register reports. The guests were allowed to clean up in a private bathroom, were given new clothes, and returned to the amusement park "healthy and happy," per a tweet from Anaheim PD. (More Disneyland stories.)
