About 27 years ago I was the little kid sitting on the curb that some lovely adults literally pushed off the curb to get a spot like five minutes before the parade. My mom and I had been sitting and patiently waiting for about 30 minutes. My mom tried to talk to the people, but they just ignored her. If I remember correctly, we ended up moving and standing elsewhere. I do remember I did get ice cream afterwards, but it soured my mom to Disney parades so badly, we didn't watch another one until 2013 MVMCP. And then those crowds were so rude during fireworks, that this year my mom requested doing the dessert party to avoid the crazy crowds. Now my husband and I watched the parade just fine in 2015. We found a half wall to sit on and just hung out. He did get after some people who stepped in front of kids in a stroller that parents asked if they could park in front of us. The people acted like they didn't see the stroller... seriously, it was a double stroller.
