We brought our 4 year old granddaughter here for her birthday and she had a blast feeding the animals. It’s a bit pricy but worth it! The key is to get there when they open so the animals will be hungry.

Yes! Very easy but go early. Plan to be there when they open because the lines get extremely long. When we left around noon, the line of cars trying to get into the park was miles (literally) long.
