Parks Miles: 8.1
Time in Parks: 9
Started off this afternoon and a nice note, no traffic on my way to the resort. Then it took almost an hour from when I exited the freeway until I was a the security tents to enter the Esplanade. Thanks to the Garage and surface lots being closed off of Disneyland drive. Not sure why as they were open later in the day. I ended up parked at the Garden walk. It was a several bus wait so I hiked to the parks. Headed for Disneyland first and out to Tomorrowland. Tried to grab a Fastpass for Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, but they were gone for the day (it was before 2pm at this point). So I hopped on the Monorail for a round trip and then waited for the Lazygeek who was on the Autopia. We then strolled around the Matterhorn, took some pictures of the new snack shack, and then headed to Fantasyland. Went for a spin on the Tea Cups and continued on to the Big Thunder Ranch. Checked out the Halloween Round-up and continued on out to the Haunted Mansion. Grabbed some Fastpassed then hopped on the Train and rode around to Main Street to head over to DCA. Walked down the backlot, grabbing some watter and pictures then headed out to the Pier by way of the Wharf. Strolled around taking pictures and went for a ride on the Fun Wheel. Finished the loop and headed back through the Wharf and over to Bugsland. Went for a ride on Tuck and Roll and then headed back to the Wharf for dinner. After dinner headed back to Disneyland and waded through the crowd on Main Street, went past the Matterhorn and into Fantasyland. Continued on out to the Haunted Mansion to use my Fastpass and the return line looked to be 15-20 minutes probably so decided to skip that this week and instead hiked over to Tomorrowland to see the Ghost Galaxy lighting effects (also caught a little of the Suburban Legends in Tomorrowland). Headed for Main Street about quarter to 9 to find a spot for the fireworks. After the show joined the masses exiting and hiked back to the Garden walk and my car to head home.

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.
