Parks Miles: 11.6
Time in Parks: 9.5
Started off this perfect spring afternoon with a crummy parking spot in the far corner of the garage (literally 10 cars from the furthest point in the last row). Hiked to the trams, and rode to Downtown Disney. First stop DCA to check out the construction. Walked down the parade route, stopped by the Blue Sky Cellar then continued on to the Bay Area. Walked by the Little Mermaid work and over to GRR to check out the World of Color return time, already on the second show so skipped it. Doubled back to get some more Mermaid shots then walked around the Pier by the Meet and Greets, Screamin, and Toy Story to get to the Fun Wheel. When for a spin and then walked through the new park and up to the Swings platform for some dining area shots. Continued on through the wall corridor and around by the Jumpin Jellyfish and the Zephyr. Made my way through Paradise Park and the Wharf. Stopped by the Blue Sky Cellar area again and then strolled through Bugsland and the Backlot as I headed for Disneyland. Wandered along Main Street USA and verred into Adventureland, over the Pirates bridge, through New Orleans Square and out to Critter Country. Circled the dead end then walked along the Rivers of America. The Mark Twain was coming into port so hopped on for a voyage up the Rivers of America. Once back on land continued on up the Big Thunder Trail and through Fantasyland. Walked by the Tea Cups, Matterhorn, and Pixie Hollow on my way to Tomorrowland to check out the Star Tours progress. Milled around for a bit then headed for the Monorail. Unfortunately it was closed so decided to hike out toward the hotels, but along the way got sidetracked by a film crew on Main Street. Hung around to see what they were filming and it turned out to be the Magic Music days bands. Three came down the street. It was just about 4:30 at this point so found a spot for the Flag Retreat then decided it was time for some food so walked back up Main Street, through the Castle, and to the Village Haus for dinner. After dinner went to see if the Monorail was operating again, there was a long line but no trains in sight so decided to head out of the park and hike through Downtown Disney and out to the Disneyland Hotel for some pictures (along the way saw the DD Monorail station was closed so it was down again/still). After my fill of pictures walked over to the Grand CA and then back through Downtown Disney and into DCA.
Walked through Condor Flats and around GRR (still had Fastpasses for the second World of Color) and out to the Pier. Strolled by Mermaid and down toward the Jellyfish before turning around and walked back down the parade route and headed for Disneyland and the 7:00pm Scot Bruce/Elvis set in Tomorrowland. Around 7:30 it was back to DCA to catch the opening of ElecTRONica on the Backlot. Stopped by Flynns then walked through the Backlot and out to the Wharf. Decided to make another lap of the Pier in an attempt to get some Mermaid shots and a couple of the new park at night. Finished the loop just as the 9pm World of Color was kicking off. Opted to go back through the Blue Sky Cellar and then out to Downtown Disney. Walked through World of Disney and out toward ESPN while the fireworks were going on. Then decided to walk back to the garage, car, and head 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.
