Disney does a great job of simulating life. Whether it be through animation or animatronics, sometimes you have to look twice to determine what is real and what is just an illusion. But I assure you that the Great Egret that I found in Frontierland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom was quite real!
In fact, I think he owned the place:
Cats, water fowl, and other beasties are free to roam around the Theme Parks of Disney. After all, just how would you stop them? Best to issue them a free Annual Pass and let them be!
I find that this real element adds so much to the immersive Disney experience.
