For those who care, tonight (6-11-05) was the first night of the Main Street Electrical Parade's path reversal. Instead of starting at the Sunshine gate, it now originates at the Paradise gate. For those who don't know, this is to relieve crowds at Disneyland for the fireworks show.
I had the pleasure of working crowd control this very night, at the Golden Dreams crossroads. Near the end of the show, I was told that we were going to block off guests who wanted to follow the float, and send them to either Pacific Wharf or around Grizzly Peak. Needless to say, this doesn't work when the odds are 3 cast members against a mob of people. We gave up after about ten seconds, and radioed in that the block off failed. I was literally shouting in a lady's face, and she was completely ignoring me.Oh well.
In short, this is a warning to those who may go to see MSEP in the coming months: park yourself in the Sunshine plaza. If not, you may find yourself being roped off by frustrated CMs.
