Fantillusion / Main Street Electrical Parade
At night, the Parades are simply overwhelming but it is precisely here that their lack of control becomes evident. The French (no, not the Germans, nor the Dutch, nor anyone else) insist on pushing through to the front of any group. If they can't get through then they shove their little children through and then follow them. Unfortunately, wedging yourself in such a position that it blocks them out is impossible; they simply push through in front of the rope barrier. This is dangerous at night, as the float drivers can't see what they're doing. Nonetheless, when warned, they then step back, usually in front of you. The answer here is to stake out your spot and be prepared to defend it with ferocious tenacity. And don't give in to French children; remember, they become French adults!
