[QUOTE=FairyGranmama;1137589]Smallworld, there is a wall to sit on!? I hate to sit on the ground, and I have a difficult time getting up gracefully :laugh: :laugh: if I sit on the wall could my family sit in front of me without blocking the entire walkway?
Thanks so much for sharing all your info!! [/QUOTE]
…there are a few spots along the frontierland and Liberty square that have a wall, however most are not up against the rope. In some places I think it is closer than others so if you sit on the low wall there and put family infront at first, you can stand up at the last minute to see perhaps. They never used to let you stand up on that wall—perhaps that has changed—but would ask you to get down —even kids—even though it wasn’t high up…it’s just that brick and or slate wall/ledge thing that kids love to walk across.
Scout it out ahead of time—you can see where the ropes will be places by the covered “holes” in the concrete and base your position on that. Ropes usually go up for the parades about 1 1/2 hours ahead of time if I remember correctly. It has been a few years since we watched from back there.
The worst part of parades and fireworks for us is the fact that we get there 2 hours ahead to get a good spot, and then people run up and push their strollers in between DD and I or place their kids in front of us. I don’t mind putting a little child on the curb next to me if they have been waiting with their family patiently for a while, but to run up as the parade is coming and ram the stroller into the back of us yelling that their child can’t see irks me to no end!! I never ever did that with my daughter!! If we didn’t get in place, we took what place was left!! My point being if you have a good spot don’t let people push you out of the way or get in front of you…it is not as bad in the “back” of the park so you should be ok with wherever you choose.
Hope this helps. :happy:
