Parks Miles: 8.0
Time in Parks: 9.5
Arrived at the parks just after lunch time and headed for DCA first. Strolled down Buena Vista Street and then walked through Condor Flats and around GRR to grab a Fastpass for World of Color. Ended up with Blue for 10:15pm show. Continued on down the trail and through the Wharf area into Cars Land. Stopped by Lizzies looking for the Cars Land CD which they were out and said to try Ramones so stopped there next. They were also out. A cast member called over to Elias and Company and they had some. Walked through Bugs Land and Hollywood Land on my way back to Buena Vista Street. Stopped by Elias and Compandy and bought the CD. Decided to make a pass through Disneyland. Made my way up Main Street to the hub and Castle area. Listened to some of the 2:30pm College Band set before walking through Fantasyland and out to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree. Listened to a couple songs from the Billies 3:00pm set before continuing down the trail, through Frontierland and over to Adventureland. Saw the Oasis was open so poked my head in there quickly then walked briskly over to DCA and Hollywood Land arriving at the Backlot Stage just as the College Band was starting their 3:25pm set. Listened to most of the set then it was a quick walk back to Disneyland to catch the 4:10pm Voices of Liberty. Arrived a couple minutes early so took a quick peek at the new Disney Gallery exhibit on the Castles. Watched them but had to leave before Great Moments started due to time constraints. As I was exiting Soundsational was just stepping off so grabbed a couple pictures of the first unit before making my way down Main Street and through the Castle to Fantasyland. Ate a quick dinner at Village Haus then back down Main Street for the 5:10pm Flag Retreat. Left as they were folding the flags so I could catch the tail end of the Avocado Week demonstration that started at 5:30pm out near ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney. Hung around there for a while then made my way back to Disneyland. Spent a good amount of time photographing and looking at the new Castle exhibit at the Disney Gallery. I finished up just as the second Soundsational parade was wrapping up. Hung around Main Street killing some time till the 7:15pm College Band set. After their set it was back to DCA and out to Cars Land for the neon lighting moment, then since we were there watched DJs show before heading to Paradise Park to find a spot for World of Color. Lined up in the stand by area and watched the 4th of July preshow and the opening of World of Color leaving just as the Mermaid section was starting. Made my way back to Disneyland and found a spot on Main Street for the 4th of July Fireworks show. As soon as the show ended it was time to make the trek back to DCA. Walked down Buena Vista Street and the parade route out to World of Color to use my Fastpass. Found a good spot and watched the entire World of Color show this time around. After the show joined the masses heading for the park exit, tram, and parking structure to call it a night.

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.
