No throwing things out during golf cart parades?

    As the Halloween golf cart parade began last week, we noticed that people were holding bags of candy, but no one was throwing anything out. One of the participants hesitantly called out that "they" told them not to throw anything.

    Huh????

    So they started HANDING them out of their carts. Seems like this is even more dangerous! Having kids run up to the carts to be handed candy/toys.

    Finally, a few minutes later, some hesitant participants just began throwing the candy and everyone else followed suit. Pretty soon, it was back to the golf cart parade that I knew and loved. For a minute there, it was a bit boring....the kids were disappointed that no one was throwing anything and the participants seemed a little baffled themselves....they had bags of candy and nothing to do with it!

    The security guys rode back and forth on their bikes during the parade and didn't stop the participants from tossing out the candy.....so I guess it was okay? I don't know. We were just spectators so I don't know what was said at the hitching area.

    Is this the first time they've been told not to toss out candy?

    We were by the 4 way stop and they were throwing, than a cast member told them to stop, then people started again so she gave up. As long as people were tossing the stuff far enough, and no one was running into the street (which no kids I saw did, if stuff didn't make it far enough an adult was getting it), I don't see the issues but I'm sure it's a CYA thing for Disney.

    We were in the Christmas parade and no one said anything then. Quite a few pounds of candy was distributed (tossed) to kids and adults alike along the route.

    I was there for the parade also. We were way up at the beginning and the first few did not throw anything, then one started and more followed. I can see how it is dangerous for the kids to be running after it but this is something that they have done for years. The kids all line up just waiting to see what will get thrown. I think if they throw it far enough to the kids and away from the street, they should be allowed to...
    Just my opinion.
