Parks Miles: 9.9
Time in Parks: 9.5
Started off this cloudy afternoon hopping on a busy tram filled with grad nite students from the Mickey and Friends garage to the parks. La Brea Bakery opened earlier today, so stopped by to see the newly rennovated building. Then continued on into the parks. First stop Disney California Adventure. Not much to see from the entrance, walked around Soarin and through Condor Flats to approach Carthay Circle. The walls have been removed from the Carthay and pushed back so the fountain is now accessible. Took three passes through the area taking pictures (wide angle, mid range, and telephoto) then eventually made my way down Hollywood Blvd and through the Mad T Party area. After taking my fill of pictures followed Sunset Blvd toward Tower of Terror then strolled through Fliks on my way to the Blue Sky Cellar. Took some pictures from the Patio and a quick look inside before going through the Wharf area and out to the Pier. Walked by Ariels and the Cove Bar area then around by Screamin and Toy Story. The objective was a ride on the Fun Wheel, but with a 45 minute wait I did not have time so I kept on walking. Made my way past Paradise Gardens by the Little Mermaid. Opted to walk down the Parade route to approach Carthay Circle again. Decided it was time to head to Disneyland. Walked acorss the Esplanade and wandered down Main Street to the hub and eventually all the way to Small World to catch the very end of the Brave Meet and Greet session. Took a quick walk through Toontown then wandered back through Fantasyland and around the Big Thunder Trail. Checked in on the Jamboree at Big Thunder Ranch then made my way over to the Shooting Exposition which has reopened. Walked back through Frontierland and around to Adventureland on my way back to the hub and over to Tomorrowland. Went for back to back rides on Manny Monorail then headed for Main Street via Tomorrowland. Worked my way down the street to arrive in Town Square just ahead of the Flag Retreat. Watched the ceremony then stopped by the Opera House to take in Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln (it is Memorial Day weekend). After the show headed for Downtown Disney. Made my way down to the Lego Store to check out their grand re-opening celebration/build, then the Earl of Sandwhich progress before doubling back through Downtown Disney and heading for DCA and dinner at Taste Pilots. After dinner spend a few minutes in Carthay Circle before heading down Hollywood Blvd to await the grand opening of the Mad T Party. Listened to the first set from the band and roamed around through the arcade and other areas before deciding to move on through Fliks and back to the Blue Sky Cellar. Took some more Cars Land pictures from the patio then headed for Disneyland. Walked down Main Street and out to Small World to watch the premiere of the summer edition of the Magic, the Memories, and You! After the show waded through the crowd waiting for Magical and headed back to DCA for some after dark photos. Spent some time in Carthay Circle before making my way back to the Mad T Party. Made a second pass through the area now that the lights were visible. It was nearing 10pm and park close so I headed back to the tram area which was jammed with guests that had just finished watching Magical at Disneyland so I opted to walk back to the garage. Made it to the garage, found my car, and headed 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.
