Does anyone know what these spikes are for? (Garden Grill) from WaltDisneyWorld

Some are reporting that these spikes are to keep birds out of the area. One user wrote:

My guess is to keep birds and their turds away.

With another user saying:

They look like anti bird spikes, but idk when there would be birds there

Another Reddit user replied, saying something similiar:

They look like bird spikes to me too. I know birds sometimes fly into The Land. But i’d think they’d need more of them. i dunno.
