Officers soon determined, however, that the geese who'd flown overhead were to blame.
Fowl play is suspected behind a crappy night for 17 guests at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California. Officials at Disneyland notified the fire department to come out and verify exactly "what the material was". The incident, reported about 9:45 p.m., was scary enough that a hazmat team responded to the scene in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle. But, it was later confirmed by police it was not human feces, and no crime was committed.
"It was clearly goose poop", Sgt Daron Wyatt of Anaheim police said.
Police say all guests are now healthy and happy.
They enjoyed the Disneyland just fine.
The guests were taken to an area to get cleaned up and Disneyland provided them with clean clothes.
