Disney World night parade + gel on flash

I realize a flash for a night parade would not give the characters the right WB compared to the scene.
And that is not the only problem.
Sandra and I visited Disney World for three weeks during last decade (2004). We took mostly videos, and I still have the DVD files I made from 11 hours of DV tape recordings.
Your flash will typically go as far as 3 meters (9 feet). A complete marching band will fill the frame at something like 10 meters distance. With a flash you will mainly succeed in irritating other visitors.
We observed that the lighting levels provided were sufficient for still photography, and the lighting itself is designed to add atmosphere. The huge lanterns in the parade will not benefit from a flash.
For the night parades then, I would leave the flash in the hotel.
