The birds at Disney are marauding thieves capable of no small measure of larceny. They will implore you that they will surely starve without your immediate aid, but it is a falsehood.
The seagulls are particularly merciless, and will gleefully steal food they are incapable of actually consuming just to prevent you from having it. I have seen this with my own terrified eyes.
No measure of individual resistance has proven effective, therefore we must all band together to rid ourselves of the scourge of avian thievery. It will take time. It will take money. It will take commitment, but we are Americans, and Americans prevail.
Seriously - don't feed 'em. They don't need it, people food isn't good for them, and it teaches them that it's OK to steal.
