Started off this great Southern California afternoon heading for DCA. Took in some of the Buena Vista Street and entrance work then walked through Condor Flats, around GRR and out the Pier. Walked by Littler Mermaid and then out to the Fun Wheel for a spin. Once back on the ground stopped by the Swings, went for a jump on the Jumpin Jellyfish and then hung out in front of the Little Mermaid building for a while. As luck would have it they opened up for a preview as I was in the area so I walked right on the ride after a 10 minute wait to see if they were going to open. After riding hopped right back in line and went a second time. This time it was a 20 minute wait (it was posted at 30). After my second trip under the sea strolled through the Wharf and then up to the Blue Sky Cellar patio for some construction shots before heading over to Disneyland. Wandered down Main Street, around the hub and into Tomorrowland. Star Tours was open, but I opted to grab a Fastpass vs the 45 min wait. Saw the Monorail was open so went for a round trip. Once back walked by the Matterhorn and through the Hub to Frontierland. The new snack stand, Golden Horseshoe, and Stage Door Cafe are all open. Took some pictures of each and then walked the Big Thunder trail and into Fantasyland. Walked through the Castle and headed for the hub to find a spot to watch Soundsational. After the parade headed down Main Street and strolled through Downtown Disney. Stopped to see the R2D2 progress at the Lego Store as I headed out to the Disneyland Hotel. Roamed around a bit taking some construction shots then made my way ver to the recently opened Trader Sams, pool area, and Frontier Tower (Wonder Tower) lobby. Took more pictures than I should have and then headed back to the parks by way of the Grand CA and Downtown Disney. Made my way down Main Street, through Adventureland and NOS and out to Critter Country where Splash Mountain is open again. Grabbed a couple pictures then headed back to NOS and hopped on the train. Took it to Main Street and found a spot to watch the second Soundsational parade of the day. After the parade left the Disneyland crowd and headed to DCA and Taste Pilots for dinner. Then strolled out to the Pier and decided to give Mermaid a third ride (this time it was a 45 min posted wait and waited about 40). It was 8:30 so decided to try and find a spot for World of Color. They did not allow me into the same area as last week so was stuck down by the Zephyr. After the show walked through the Grand CA and Downtown Disney on the way to the parking structure. Found my car and headed for home.

Note: These totals may be skewed because the pedometer is zero'd
when we start and then left alone and read when we leave. So attractions,
and other things may cause extra "steps" to be counted.
The pedometer that we use basically measures up/down motion as a
step, so if your standing in line and moving up and down it may
be counting steps, etc.. so the total distances traveled and steps
may be off.. so use these as rough distance comparisons between
trips and they may not be accurate in terms of actual distance traveled.
