I think most places in the park are safe to eat but any time somthing is over looked and its left out to long it chould get you! In saying that there is one area i will never eat from plaza and inn between!
trying to spot the cats is one of my favorite things to do!
When Thunder Mountain BBQ was open, we would go at dusk, and they were there by the dozens. They are really skittish, but they wanted some food. You can't touch them, they run.
We also saw on our last visit, cast members who worked at Hungry Bear feeding a pregnant one. She seemed quite tame.
