Hi! Welcome back Great updates! I cannot believe that a father actually knocked over a woman with his stroller! And didn't even have the humanity to say sorry or be ashamed of himself! And saying such nasty words to you... Oh man. Crowds really do bring out the worst in some people!

Glad you have another trip booked! We will be there the same time! I'm so excited to see it all done up for Christmas. Looking forward to your PTR!

Sorry I'm just an innocent gentleman from the East Coast, what would the two words the guy with the stroller said to you? I can't figure them out.

Some people are just crazy!

That reminds me of the first time my husband and I went to Disney together. We were standing on the curb on Main Street deciding what we wanted to do first. This little boy of about 5 comes running down the sidewalk and runs head first at full speed into my husband. My husband is a big man, so other than hurting his knee, he didn't budge. Of course the kid bounced off of him like a bouncey ball. My husband reached down quickly to keep the child from falling down and hurting himself. The mother comes running over screaming at the top of her lungs, "STOP TOUCHING MY CHILD! HE IS TRYING TO TOUCH MY CHILD!" My husband just kind of looked at her dumbfounded while I looked at the woman and told her as nicely as I could that if she had bothered to watch her child, it wouldn't have happened. She then decides to start yelling. Before 3 words came out of her mouth, a CM came over and told her she should thank us for helping her child. We just walked away shaking our heads.

Hi, I am SO ENJOYING your trip report!! But when I read your latest post I had to go back and check the dates of your trip. You see my DD and I were in MK that night also!! That was THE MOST CROWDED I have EVER seen the MK for the parade and fireworks.(and we have been visiting WDW for the past 25 years!) My DD and I were trying to get thru the hub crowd and down Main Street to leave the park and there was only an area for one person to walk thru at a time! My DD held on to me for dear life and she is 28. At one point I started having a severe pain in my leg and I just could not walk. When I tried to rest up against a rail for a few minutes a CM said I had to move. Well my DD spoke up and said my Mom has to rest she is in pain! The CM was very concerned and offered to call a medic for me. (how they would have gotten thru THAT crowd was beyond me) I said no just let me lean for a few minutes and then I should be okay. The CM told me take my time,she was very nice and quite concerned. I rested for about 10 mins,thanked her and we continued on our way. right out of the park. But that was the SCARIEST crowd I have ever seen in the MK. And I have been in MK on 4th of July and Thanksgiving!! (Both during the day, not at night) Joan

It continues to amaze me how rude and ignorant some people can be.

We learned after going to the MK on 4th of July back in 2004, never to go on a holiday itself (or that weekend for that matter) again.

Love the photos and update (except for the rude people).

Well, I have to say that I'm relieved that it wasn't you that got brutalized with the stroller, but WOW! Just Wow. I guess I'll never stop being surprised at how rude people can be.

We are never among the first to the parade route, so Bryan always moves as far back as he can and puts Mads on his shoulders. On this last trip we were shocked and pleased that people offered to let Maddie sit up front with their children. While it is amazingly sweet for people to offer, we'd never expect it to happen!

Not only were people were hitting each other with strollers, they were doing it with their children strapped to them???? What is this world coming to if we can't be happy in the Magic Freaking Kingdom?????? So very, very sad.

Hi Queen, welcome back, we have missed you, but i completely understand about checking out for a bit....
ya know some people.....
I guess the silver lining is that those people do not see the magic of the place and perhaps they will not return to our happy place...

Glad to see/read you back....

Oh. my. goodness. I can't believe (actually I probably can) the man with the stroller or the mom at the parade. Maybe they'd been at the parks all day, and they were hot and tired.....Maybe.....

So glad to see you are back & updating! I have been missing this TR!

Okay, WOW, that is some crazy stuff! Luckily, the few times we have watched the nighttime parade, we haven't witnessed anything so crazy. But then someone smashing into people with a stroller?!? That is just loony!! I don't get how people don't understand that at the end of the night, we are all trying to get to the same place. Injuring other people is not necessary!!

That's awful that that man acted like that! I guess he missed his pixie dust that morning. I don't understand how anyone, an adult no less, could act like. Everyone wants out of those crowds, not just him. Very cool that you and your daughter were able to laugh instead of really letting it get to you. That can be hard sometimes!
