Parks Miles: 10.4
Time in Parks: 14.5
Arrived at the Disneyland Resort a little after 7:15am. Since I was ahead of schedule, thanks to favorable traffic, I decided to walk to the parks from the Parking Garage going through Downtown Disney to check out latest construction. Arrived at DCA about 20 to 8 so had some time to give a brief tour of Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land while some of the group queued up for a Racers Fastpass. At 8am when the park opened we headed for Cars Land with the masses and strolled down Route 66 and walked right onto the Flying Tires. After the tires made our way through Ornament Valley and out to the Wharf then onto the Pier to wait for the rest of the group that had now gotten the Fastpasses for the Racers as well as World of Color and we all headed out to Toy Story. Only a 10 minute wait then we walked on the the Fun Wheel, some went on Goofys Sky School and we all walked onto the Little Mermaid. Strolled around GRR and walked onto Soarin. Things were moving nicely... then as we were waiting for the safety video in Soarin noticed it was not starting and cast members were moving around a lot. After a few minutes they informed us we would be moving to the other theater. So our couple minute wait turned into a 20 minute wait. After Soarin walked through Carthay Circle and back to Cars Land to go on the Racers. Then wandered back to the Wharf and some chocolate at Ghirardelli before deciding it was too early for lunch (it was just before 11am) so we strolled toward the park exit, along the way stopping for the Red Car News Boys. After their performance it was time to visit Disneyland. We roamed around Main Street and made our way to Adventureland where I grabbed Fastpasses for Indiana Jones. We decided the Jungle Cruise line was too long and opted to head to the Stage Door Cafe for an early lunch. After eating we walked right onto Pirates, through New Orleans Square, and onto Haunted Mansion. We doubled back to Adventureland to use our Indy Fastpasses and it was closed so hopped on the Jungle Cruise which had only a 10 minute wait. Walked over to Frontierland and grabbed fastpasses for Big Thunder on the way to the Jamboree and 1:15 Billies performance. After the Billies the group headed back to Big Thunder and I roamed through Fantasyland and out to the new Princess Meet in Greet. My photos were cut short and I walked by the Matterhorn and through the hub to rejoin the group in Adventureland and use our Indy Fastpasses. We had some time to kill so slowly headed back to Main Street, grabbed something to drink, and made our way down to the Disney Gallery and Main Street Opera House. Caught the 3:00pm Voices of Liberty and Great Moments show then hopped on the train and disembarked at Toontown. Walked onto Small World then hopped back on the Train to Main Street. Watched most of Soundsational from the train station then I ran over to DCA to grab something from our locker. Caught the last half of the DCA flag retreat and then back to Disneyland to rejoin the group and watch the Disneyland Flag Retreat. Strolled down Main Street USA and through the Castle to Fantasyland. Ate dinner at the Village Haus and then walked through Fantasyland over to Tomorrowland. Buzz was a 10 minute wait so went for a spin then waited about 15 minutes for Finding Nemo. Resurfaced with a couple minutes to spare before the 7pm Elvis (Scot Bruce) set. After the show we headed back to Main Street, some shopping, then back to DCA. Strolled down Buena Vista Street and wandered through Hollywood Land. Walked through the Mad T Party, then by Tower of Terror, through Bugs Land and out to Cars Land. Caught a little of DJs before moving on to the Wharf, a quick stop in Ghirardellis, and then out to the Pier to find a spot for World of Color. Waited about 40 minutes and watched the show from the Blue section. After World of Color joined the masses heading toward the exit. Made our way out out of the park, through the Esplande, to the tram, car, and home to end our full day at the parks (it was a 18 hours from when we left the house till we returned home today).

For Comparisons to other trips or more park miles click
here to visit our park Miles Section.
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.
