Absolutely! They will rope off the area the ducks march down, and are quite strict about it. Children can sit on the floor in front of the rope. You can also go up on the balcony, and view from up there. However, if it is your first time, I highly recommend getting there early, to be on the floor. Be sure to go up on the roof! Hope this helps. ENJOY!
