well, except for in parade type situations - there it happens all the time...
you stake out a spot and at the last second someone comes along and thinks they can just squeeze in front of you (between you and the rope)...

but in lines for rides, i've only experienced it with europeans/south americans - never with americans.....

i will be really irritated if it happens..
that's what turned me off to disneyland paris - i just couldn't deal with all the line jumping...
Yes, majority I would say were Europeans (embarrassingly lots of Brits) but there were a few Americans too but definitely the minority.

One particular occasion was in the line for Toy Story Mania, there was an elderly lady in the queue behind us, then when we got closer to the front we saw the rest of her family make their way through the queue - another 5people! Then the older lady left the queue and went outside to wait for them.

In 15+ trips I have never experienced it before so hopefully we won't get it again.

Fortunately we didn't need to. One of the families they had pushed in front of complained to them and caused a bit of a row in the queue. Eventually a cast member came over but by this point we were at the front so I didn't see the outcome.

Unfortunately for any one trying to jump in front of us I have a particularly stubborn family who would just point blank refuse to let them past.

we had a similar problem on Mission space on our last day. We joined the queue and there was a family of 3 in front of us. We had seen that they were with a much larger group outside but most of them did not seem to want to go on the ride and headed off somewhere. A bout 5 mins into the wait, one child joined them by passing under a barrier. Ok, one child, no problem. Then a minute later an adult did the same thing...still no biggy. But then we spotted that 3 other were working their way up the line and this is where I saw red. So my DH and I stood squarely across the line and when they said, 'excuse me' we said...No. The original adults ahead tried to cause a fuss, but we stood our ground and refused to budge, pointed out the 3 had become 4, had become 5 and now they wanted to make it 8!!! They muttered to themselves and eventually asked if they could go behind us. There was a young american couple who had originally been behind us so we agreed, as long as they all went behind them too. They frowned but agreed. When we got to the ride, two of the original adults stepped aside. They weren't even riding, just saving a place in the line.
