Do you ever have a problem with people coming standing in front of your tripod blocking the view once you've set up?

In the mid-Main St. picture you can see that I did. However, I didn't have my tripod extended all the way up, so could have potentially 'cropped' some of those people out just by being over their heads. It doesn't ever seem to be a problem if I'm in the hub (the blue fireworks pic), I don't know why that is, maybe because there's not that much room for as many people as standing directly in the middle of the street.

The closer you are to the castle, a few things happen -
1) you have to point your camera up, so the bottom of the frame is farther from the ground - thus less heads
2) people have been lined up there a lot longer and most are sitting down for the show. People get tired of standing after a while.
I have set up a tripod right in front of the Photopass guy on Main Street a lot of times. Like TT said, you just gotta be conscious of people walking by. But its defintiely do-able.
When looking for a tripod, I'd suggest getting one light weight. Carbon Fiber or aluminum. Because carrying it around all day gets heavy after a while...
