I agree completely. I too know where Alice stops, and that's where you will find me. The other sequences don't do much for me and could pretty much drive by, with characters permanently atop a float... Tink, Ariel, Simba, etc.
I like the show stops, I LOVED the Party Gras parade which was the first show stop parade I remember seeing, PG had more guest interaction than POD. In PG the dances would drag people from the audience into a huge conga line, what fun that was.
Moving parades like MSEP have less interaction, ok, Alice talks to the crowd, but most parades are like watch the costumed people go by.
