Parks Miles: 7.9
Time in Parks: 9
Started off this extremely warm day at the Disneyland Resort with a quarter mile hike to the escalator in the Mickey and Friends garage. Was directed into a spot in 1H... which is maybe a dozen or so spots from the far corner. Made my way to a waiting tram and headed for the parks. First stop today Disneyland to check out the Halloweentime festivities. Wandered down Main Street checking out the usual decorations as well as some ongoing rehab projects. Circled the hub and strolled through Adventureland and out to New Orleans Square with a goal of finding a Fastpass for Haunted Mansion. This plan was foiled when I learned there is no Fastpass for Haunted Mansion Holiday this year. So I circled back and walked through New Orleans Square, stopping to check out the Pirates League. Made my way through Frontierland and around the Big Thunder Trail to the Ranch Jamboree which is now featruing a Halloween Carnival. Ran into several other websites out taking pictures, so chatted for a brief time. I walked around, tried out some of the games, and stopped by the Astounding Cauldron of Magic that was Conjuring Villains, Just for Fun! Captain Hook was inside taking pictures when I stopped. I still had about half an hour till the Haunted Billies took the stage so I decided to make a quick walk through Fantasyland to see what was going on, then through the Small World Mall, Toontown, and back around the Matterhorn and through the Castle. Made it back with about 5 minutes to spare. Took some Character pictures and then pictures of Mickeys Mask Parade. Followed by the Billys and their Haunted Show. After the show circled back by Haunted Mansion to see how the line looked, still more than I wanted to deal with, so headed for DCA. Strolled down Buena Vista Street after picking up the new Buena Vista Bugle and took a look at some of the window displays. Walked down the Backlot and into the Animation Building to check out the Frankenweenie displays then over to the Muppet theater for the sneak peek of the film. Stopped by Dancin with Disney to see what was going on (and read a couple emails in the A/C). Walked by Tower of Terror and they were just pulling a Red Car out from backstage so I decided to go for a ride and had the car to myself all the way to Carhay Circle. There the car filled up for the final leg to the Buena Vista Street. I disembarked and walked back to Carthay Circle and decided to grab some dinner at Taste Pilots. After dinner walked around GRR and grabbed a Fastpass for World of Color then headed for Cars Land. The Racers single rider line looked short so hopped in it and as luck would have it it was short. But after a couple of minutes with only a handful of guests in front of me the attraction went down. So I bailed out at this point and walked through Cars Land and decided to head to Disneyland. The 6:30 parade was about to step off and I had heard they were doing just a cavalcade due to the heat so I pulled up a spot to watch. Talked to a cast member and learned they had decided to run a full Soundsational stepping off from Small World, so I made my way down Main Street and caught the opening of the parade as it made its way through the hub. Strolled through Tomorrowland and over by Ghost Galaxy to see what was going on. Took a couple pictures and then found a spot to catch the 7:00pm Elvis set at the Tomorrowland Terrace. After Elvis made my way back to the hub then through Adventureland and out to New Orleans Square to bite the bullet and wait for Haunted Mansion. It had a 50 minute posted wait that turned out to be about 30. After the Mansion circled back through New Orleans and hung out at the River Belle Terrace a bit while some ate. Then made our way to Main Street to catch Remember, Dreams Come True. After the show it was a quick stop at DCA to pick up some Buena Vista Bugles before walking back to the Mickey and Friends Garage and finding my car to 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.
