Time in Parks: 9
Arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch and was directed into the last row on the Goofy Level. Then hiked to the escalator. Arrived at the tram stop and found no trams in sight. So decided to hike to the parks. I was surprised that I made it to Downtown Disney without any trams passing me heading into the parks (saw a couple leaving). Headed for Disneyland first today. Arrived on Main Street just as the 1pm Christmas Fantasy Parade was making its way toward Town Square. Watched the opening of the parade then inched my way toward the hub. Made my way into Adventureland and saw Indiana Jones was operating so took advantage of the single rider line and went for a ride. After my ride continued on to New orleans Square and grabbed a Fastpass for Haunted Mansion in case I had time to ride later. Strolled along the Rivers of America and down the Big Thunder trail on my way to the Jingle Jangle Jamboree. Hung around for a few minutes then continued on through Fantasyland and out to Small World. Took some pictures of the Fantasyland Theater work then walked back through Fantasyland and the Castle to get pictures of the Fantasy Faire work. Made my way down Main Street, over to DCA, through Buena Vista Street and Condor Flats on my way to the Grand Californian. Took in a concert by the Dickens Carolers and wandered around the lobby for a while before heading to Downtown Disney. Walked through World of Disney on my way back to the parks. Headed for DCA and spent some time on Buena Vista Street then stopped to grab a bite to eat at Taste Pilots. After dinner made my way to Cars Land for the nightly lighting moment then on my way back to Disneyland caught the Tree Lighting on Buena Vista Street. Arrived in Town Square with about 10 minutes to spare before the Candlelight was to begin. Found a spot for the show. After the Candlelight made my through the mass of guests and into the park. Headed for Small World to catch the quarter hour projection show then into Toontown to see what was going on this evening there. Circled around and then made my way back to Main Street. Then headed to Tomorrowland. Strolled through and caught a couple songs from the Bolts who were performing at the Tomorrowland Terrace and then made my way back to Main Street to catch the processional part of the Candlelight and inched through the crowd and made my way back to DCA. Wandered through Buena Vista Street and down Hollywood Blvd to the Animation Building. Spent some time taking some pictures inside then headed to the Mad T Party at the top of the hour to catch the band. After their set roamed Bugs Land and Cars Land on my way to World of Color. Caught the first half of the show then decided I had better leave early to get to Disneyland in time for Believe in Holiday Magic. Arrived on Main Street with only a couple minutes to spare. Watched the show and snow then headed for the tram, garage, car, and home.

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.
