I case you haven’t seen it, there is a whole discussion on the etiquette of line-cutting and parade waiting: Line Cutting.
After reading that discussion, I’d like to ask for your advice on how to best get a good spot for Wishes while simultaneously keeping three little ones (3, 5, and 7) from going stir-crazy. (Bear in mind that we’re going to be there in October and had originally planned to be in place in time for MSEP, but with its cancellation, we will be there well before Wishes with not much to do.)
Thinking about what I read, I guess my plan might be to find a decent spot, keep two adults there and let the third adult take the kids down Main Street to go pee, get a snack, shop, explore, or whatever for 20-30 minutes, then come back to at least assure folks around us that we do need the space before sending the kids back with a different adult for more diversions. Obviously, we all need to be in place well before the fireworks, 30 minutes bare minimum, hopefully 45 minutes, but much more than that and we could be facing melt-downs that noone will enjoy, especially those around us.
Tell me what you think. Is this acceptable or am I being too discourteous?
