Parks Miles: 12.3
Time in Parks: 13
Started off this Sunday morning with a very early wakeup call for the CHOCK Walk in the Park. I was in the car and on my way to the Disneyland Resort by 4:30am. Arrived about 5:45am and parked in the Mickey and Friends structure. Waited for some of my group to arrive then walked over to Downtown Disney and then onto DCA. Found a spot for the opening ceremony then took some pictures of the walkers starting. Made my way down the course to Cars Land. At this point the course took a right at Cross Street and worked its way back to the Wharf where it doubled back to the Parade route then out and around the Pier for a look before going by GRR and out through the gate by Soarin. Through the Esplanade and into Disneyland. Up Main Street, around the hub and into Tomorrowland. It snaked around the Matterhorn and through Fantasyland and Frontierland, along the Rivers of America and out to Critter Country where it went backstage and you walked to the gate by Downtown Disney. The final leg was through Downtown Disney and the finish line was near the House of Blues. After the walk I made my way out to the new ice skating rink and then made a quick trip to the car to drop off my warm morning clothes before heading to the parks. Took the tram back to the parks and stopped at Guest Services because I needed to check on something with my pass upgrade from Florida then it was off to DCA. Made my way out to Cars Land and then the Pier to catch the Instant Concert. Walked down the parade route, through Bugsland and into Hollywoodland. Stopped by the Animation Building to check out the new Beasts Library characters and then continued on to Buena Vista Street. Decided to grab some lunch at Taste Pilots before heading across the Esplanade to Disneyland. Wandered down Main Street USA, around the hub and into Fantasyland. Took a left and made my way to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree to check out the Carnival and catch the Haunted Hillbillies. After their set strolled back through Fantasyland and the Small World Mall making my way out to Toontown. Circled around and then back through Small World Mall and around the Matterhorn to Tomorrowland. Walked through Tomorrowland Terrace and then back to Main Street. Decided to visit the Tiki Room for some A/C and to rest for a few minutes. Then made our way through New Orleans and out to Critter Country. Doubled back along the Rivers of America and around the Big Thunder Trail to meet some friends at the Village Haus then we all made another pass through the Carnival at the Ranch. Afterwards strolled along the Big Thunder trail and some went on the attraction. Decided it was time to leave Disneyland and back to DCA. Stopped in a couple shops along Main Street USA on the way out. Over at DCA walked down Buena Vista Street and the parade route to Cars Land and entered Bugs Land from there. Circled Bugs Land and then back out by Maters. Decided to make a candy run to Ghirardelli (pumpkin spice was the free chocolate) and grabbed some bread from the Wharf Cafe. After eating stopped by Redwood Creek to rejoin some friends then decided to head for the cars. Walked instead of taking the tram back to the garage and headed for home after a long day at the parks. It was a little after 6:30 and I arrived home around 8:00pm to call it a night.

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.
