The Big Thunder Ranch Petting Zoo is located, ironically in my opinion, right next to the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ restaurant!  Located in Frontierland, the petting zoo appears to me to be the perfect little place to relax and enjoy some quiet time in between those crazy e-ticket attractions.  The Petting Zoo is our choice for day 81 in our Days til Disneyland countdown.

At the zoo you can find cows, goats, pigs, donkeys, and sheep for your youngster to pet.  On the Disneyland website, this attraction is listed as being in the “Fun for Little Ones” category, so it certainly isn’t for everyone.  However, knowing Disney as we all do, I would be surprised if there wasn’t some great educational value to Big Thunder Ranch!

I think we’ll take a look at it, just to say we did, but I don’t expect that we will spend too much time here — but who knows?  It never ceases to amaze me the things that Sophie enjoys — this might be her favorite thing!

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Easter, everyone!  He is Risen!  Jesus is Risen, indeed!
