 We were right in the middle of the fireworks at magic kingdom and They had cast members blocking him off with a good amount of space within 3 minutes. And not just 1-2 cast members, like 10 cast members creating a human barricade to keep him out of everyone’s view. By the time the paramedics came, they had the entire Main Street cleared of people.

When this Guest came to they were wondering what had happened and they explained to stay calm that they were in the parade and this Guest started waving to the crowd and the crowds cheered. Disney made this Guests trip right by allowing them to come back for free the next day to redo this Guest’s first experience.
