    I was talking about this to a workmate today. Last time we were at DisneyWorld we waited 2 hours as recommended by the guide books to get a position for the parades. Everytime we had other people try and shove their way in front of us 5 minutes before the start or worse shove their children in front of our family.

    How do you handle this? do you politely but firmly say no and shove them back or what?

    We travel as two adults with no kids and don't tend to try and get a spot until 10-15 minutes before showtime - but that's because we know where to go That said we obviously never try and stand in front of anyone else - which is downright rude. If anyone tries to stand in front of us we politely ask them to move. The exception is small children who I will happily let stand/sit in front of me.

    Another thing I hate is people who hold their cameras up really high with the LCD screen all lit up in the back which just ruins your view too!

    Yep, an age old problem. We were at a fence side table in Mexico for Illuminations one time. A family came and crushed themselves between the table and the fence blocking our view! You HAD to see it to believe it!

    "Pardon me. Down in front." Or "Pardon me, I'm not able to see through you, " are about the limit of my comments though. Takes from the whole experience to get awkward over a parade view.

    with regards to children being pushed to the front. I like to be able to offer to bring them forward not have a parent expect to push their child to the front. It's just manners really
