Arrived at the Disneyland Resort a bit later than usual, I stayed Downtown to watch the Space Shuttle. Started off this last day of summer with a traffic jam at the Disneyland Drive/Ball Road light. It took me about 20 minutes to get from the I5 south exit to the garage toll booths. Once in the garage no wait and directed up to the roof to park. Walked down the steps and across the parking lot on my way to Downtown Disney. Walked by the Disneyland Hotel then by the Earl of Sandwich work before strolling through the rest of Downtown Disney on my way to the parks. First stop today Disney California Adventure. Made my way down Buena Vista Street, around Carthay Circle and wandered out to Cars Land. Walked through the Wharf entrance and out to the Pier. Caught the Instant Concert then continued around past the Jumpin Jellyfish, Swings and Fun Wheel. Noticed both Screamin and Toy Story were down. Finished my loop of the Pier and went by GRR. Grabbed a Fastpass for World of Color then continued on through Condor Flats and Carthay Circle on my way to Hollywood Land. Walked through the Animation Building then doubled back to Buena Vista Street to head for Disneyland, paused along the way to catch a little of the Red Car News Boys. Once in Disneyland wandered down Main Street and into Frontierland. Made my way around the Big Thunder Trail and out to the Halloween Carnival. Pulled up a seat to watch the Haunted Hillbillies and took some pictures of the area. After the show walked back down the Trail and to New Orleans to check out the Haunted Mansion line. It was longer than my patience to stand in the sun so walked through the streets of NOS and Frontierland on my way back to the Hub. Took some pictures of the area and walked through the Castle and Fantasyland. Ended up back at the Ranch for a second show of the Billies. Grabbed a quick dinner at the Village Haus then walked through Fantasyland and out to Toontown. Made the circle and walked by the Matterhorn and into Tomorrowland. Walked through Pizza Port then noticed Captain EO was about to open its doors so decided to take in a show since it had been a while. After the show made my way to Main Street and found a spot to watch the opening of Soundsational before returning to DCA. Once back in DCA made my way to Hollywood Land and stopped by the Mad T Party. After the bands set walked by Tower and through Bugs Land on my way to Cars Land. Spent a good amount of time wandering around and just enjoying Radiator Springs. Played around with my camera taking some pictures for a while then about 8:30 decided to make my way to the Pier to find a spot for World of Color. I enjoyed the show (only taking a handful of pictures!) then joined the masses heading for the exit. Walked through the Esplanade as Remember was going on and boarded a tram to the garage. Reached the parking structure just as the finale was exploding overhead. 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.
