We have had that problem at EPCOT for years - they are attracted to food dropped by humans. Disney uses several methods, but one is to string clear fishing line across the area above the walkways. Not noticeable to humans, but deters the pigeons. A version is described on this site good luck!

Well the Epcot suggestion sound sensible. Your question and the answers gave us the biggest laugh. It must be the silly season.
