Thats so true. I was at rope drop last Feb of 2006 and I nearly got ran over by a stroller, and the park wasn't even that crowded. We just strolled over to Indy and then somebody cut in front of me, for the first ride of the day! And I was half way through the que when somebody did. XD
It is almost a walk / run thing going on. With Indy or Space not only do you have to walk to the attraction, but there is quite a bit of a walk to the actual ride, so I just let all of the excited frenized people go wizzing by me and eventualy I will get on the ride. I have seen people tried out after the first ride.
A week or so ago, I was at Disneyland right at the rope drop, we ran...yep I said it - guilty...ran to Space Mountain and there was still a 35 min. wait.....outrageous!!! I guess it's all those early entry folks.
