11/18/17 3.6 9,695 3.5 I arrived in the Disneyland area around 7am and decided to grab some breakfast then head for the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. This was a mistake. The backup to reach to the freeway overpass on Ball. I circled around and used the Ball Road overpass. It took me approx. 35 minutes from Harbor Blvd to a parking spot. Then I walked through Downtown Disney to reach the parks because the security and trams were backed up at the structure. In the end it took about an hour from Harbor to park my car and reach Main Street USA. Strolled up Main Street USA and out to it's a small world holiday. There was no wait, since it was only a little after 9am. Then decided to go for a spin on Buzz Lightyear. Waited just under 10 minutes.

34 243.9 302 Totals

Archives of previous year's trips.

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.
