Parks Miles: 8.0
Time in Parks: 10.5
I arrived at the parks about 10am on this picture perfect morning. The Mickey and Friends tram stop was alive with activity and it was a two tram wait. Headed to DCA first and grabbed a Fastpass for World of Color(red section already). Then wandered out to the Pier and made my way around to the Fun Wheel for a spin. Once back on the ground strolled through Paradise Garden and around toward Little Mermaid. The line was longer than my patience so continued on to the Wharf area and the Blue Sky Cellar for some more Cars Land pictures. Then out to Buena Vista Street for a look at the progress. Walked back through Condor Flats and around GRR again to grab a Corn Dog out on the Pier for lunch. After lunch circled back to the Grand Californian to check out its Christmas Decorations, then over to the Paradise Pier Hotel followed by the Disneyland Hotel. Hopped on the Monorail to return to Disneyland, but noticed a short line so went back to back to get some construction shots before entering the park. Once in Disneyland made my way through the masses in Tomorrowland and out to the hub. Took some Castle shots and roamed down the parade route to Toontown to see it during the day. Decided to find a spot for the 2:30 Christmas Fantasy Parade. After the parade escaped the crowd with a quick ride on Small World Holiday. Then made my way through Fantasyland and out to the Reindeer Round-up. Checked Pirates and it was a 50 minute wait so continued on to Critter Country. Circled the area then wandered back to Frontierland to catch the 4:30pm Billy Hill show. After the show made my way to Main Street to catch the tree lighting moment. Then headeed back through the Castle to Fantasyland for dinner at the Village Haus. Once dinner was over headed back to Pirates which had a posted 25 minute line (turned out to be only 20). Hopped on Disneyland Railroad to Tomorrowland. Caught the opening of the Suburban Legends set before heading to DCA to find a spot for World of Color. After World of Color headed for the tram, car, and home, catching some of the Disneyland fireworks from the tram stop.

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.
