California farm preparing for Disney goat reunion

Posted: Updated:

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California farm is preparing for a Disney goat reunion.

The Press Enterprise reports that 11 goats will be among the petting zoo animals permanently leaving Disneyland for life on the Murrieta farm. The farm is already home to four former Disneyland goats.

Disney is also sending sheep and donkeys to the farm.

The animals are being moved because the Big Thunder Ranch area is closing permanently to make for a 14-acre "Star Wars" land.

Disney closed several attractions to make space for the land. Some closures are permanent and others will last at least a year.

Disney officials say the new area will be an immersive experience for visitors, with a spaceship ride and a cantina like the one in the "Star Wars" films.
