Reached Disneyland around 8:30 and the gates had just opened and lines were flowing quickly. Hung out on Main Street until 9:00am and then picked up a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance and then headed to Fantasyland. Some of the group visited Storybook Land and others Mr. Toad. I took some pictures then we all met up and went for a cruise on it's a small world. It was nearing 10am and I needed to head back to the parking structure and leave for a while. I went to the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana for a preview of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit. Returned to the Mickey and Friends parking structure around 2:30pm. Took a tram to the parks and made my way to Disney California Adventure. Grabbed a bite to eat at Smokejumpers and took a quick look around the park before heading to Disneyland to find the rest of my group that had been enjoying the parks all day. Met them in Fantasyland and we all headed to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Half of the group used our boarding passes for Rise of the Resistance. After riding a second group went. During this second trip through the attraction broke down. We were on the shuttle and everything stopped. After several minutes cast members opened the interior doors and walked us off. Met up with the rest of the group in Frontierland and decided to head for Main Street USA and found a spot around 5:30 for the 6:00pm Magic Happens Parade. After the parade got in line for the AP Indiana Jones event. After picking up our buttons decided to call it an evening and head back to Main Street and out to the tram. Found the car and headed for home.

2/28/20 9.7 20,548 9 Arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch. The overpass was closed so had to sit through a light at Ball Rd, but no lines at tollbooths and only a slight backup on the 4th floor to park. No wait at security or for a tram either. Decided to start my visit at Disney California Adventure. Walked quickly through the Food & Wine Festival Corridor on my way to Paradise Gardens Park to see the 1:15pm Jammin Chefs performance. Continued out to Paradise Gardens to look around then doubled back through the Festival Corridor, making a quick walk through Cars Land. Made my wy into Hollywood Land, strolled along Hollywood Blvd then Sunset Blvd checking out the ongoing projects. Stopped by the Backlot Stage to see a little of the 2:15pm Jr. Chefs presentation then headed for Disneyland. Main Street was already busy with most areas at least two deep for the premiere performance of Magic Happens. It was still about an hour before parade time so I decided to take a look around Tomorrowland then Fantasyland before returning to the hub to find a spot about 3:00pm. Watched Magic Happens from the hub and then used the west side by pass to head for the park exit. Crossed back to Disney California Adventure and while en route ordered some dinner from the Pacific Wharf Bakery. Picked up my order and found a seat out by Flos to eat. After eating returned to Disneyland. It was about 5:00pm, an hour before the second Magic Happens. Curb seating was once again gone but there were spaces in the 2nd and 3rd row in many locations this time. I made my way to Adventureland and then out to New Orleans Square before walking back through Frontierland. Found a spot in the hub for the parade around 5:30pm and waited. After Magic Happens I again used the by pass and returned to Disney California Adventure. Roamed around the Food & Wine Festival, checked out the Bakery Tour that reopened and made my way out to Paradise Gardens Park for the 7:15pm Phat Cat Swinger Concert. After their set headed for Soarin' to use a FastPass then returned for their 8:15pm set (missing half the first song). Once their set was over strolled back through Food & Wine Festival on my way to Disneyland. Wandered up Main Street USA and into Tomorrowland to have a look around then doubled back to Main Street USA. Found a spot for Mickeys Mix Magic about 15 minutes before show time. After the fireworks joined the crowds exiting the park and headed for the tram, parking structure, my car and home.

2/19/20 11.2 23,777 11.5 Arrived in Anaheim around 6am and stopped for a quick breakfast before arriving at the Mickey and Friends parking structure just before 7am. No real delays in parking. Security lines were on the long side and moved slow but no wait for a tram then. Once you disembarked the tram you could see the large mass of guests waiting to enter Disneyland. They opened the gates just after 7:30. We made it in the park with plenty of time to spare before the 8am park opening. Spent some time wandering around Town Square while waiting. Promptly at 8am we visited the app, like almost everyone else in the park, to pick up a boarding group for Rise of the Resistance. We lucked out and picked up group 31. With our boarding group secured we decided to head for Disney California Adventure. It was just after 8am and the lines to enter Disneyland were backed up to DCA still. DCA had a handful of guests in each line so no issues there, just had to get through the crowd trying to get into Disneyland. Strolled up Buena Vista Street and out to Cars Land. Picked up Radiator Springs Racers FastPasses then went for a spin on Luigis. Walked through the Wharf and out to Pixar Pier. Continuing our spin theme we visited the Critter Carousel then the Pixar Pal-A-Round. Some of the group then visited the Little Mermaid, others the Baby Care center and the rest of us paid a visit to Hollywood Land and walked around. We all met up in Carthay Circle just as they called our boarding group. So headed back across the Esplanade to Disneyland. Lines were just shy of the Monorail beam now. Walked through Frontierland to reach Batuu. As we passed the Marketplace crossed paths with R2-D2. Arrived at Rise of the Resistance to find it down. They said we could wait in line or come back later. We divided up with some doing the child swap and heading to Fantasyland while the rest of us got in line to try our luck that it would be a short downtime. I was stopped just short of the waterfall in the queue. After about 30 minutes the line began to move. We moved at a very good pace and were on the ride shortly with no issues. As we exited located the rest of the group to swap the kids and they returned to ride. They had ridden the Tea Cups and Storybook Land Canal boats while we were on rise. While the road we explored Black Spire Outpost. Once they were done we all headed to Frontierland for lunch then toward the front of the park. Some departed at this point for the day and the rest of us crossed back to Disney California Adventure and used our Radiator Springs Racers Fastpasses. Hung out in Cars Land then the Wharf for a while before deciding to try for the 3:15pm Disney Jr Dance Party. Made it there about 5 minutes before show time and were able to make the show. After the show the kids took quick naps in the stroller and we returned to Disneyland and picked up FastPasses for Small World and did some shopping while they slept. Some went to Fantasyland and Pincocchio and I roamed around Tomorrowland taking some pictures. Met up by it's a small world and waited for everyone to wake up then used our FastPasses. After riding decided to eat dinner in the Red Rose Taverne. Then paid a visit to the Enchanted Tiki Room. It was approaching 7:30 and everyone was starting to drag a bit (we had a 4am alarm to get to the parks this morning) so we opted to walk through Downtown Disney and back to the parking structures, found the cars and headed for home.

2/14/20 11.0 23,399 9 Arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch and was greeted with a long line of cars at the Ball Road light as soon as I exited the freeway. I missed the light and had to wait a second one. All lanes were backed up in the parking structure, about 3/4ths the way to the end. So it was a slow crawl to get to the tollbooth. Once through things sped up a little as cars were being directed to several levels. The lane I was in was sent to the 5th floor. Once there it appeared to be a free for all/scramble to find parking. There were no cast members. So I choose an aisle and found a spot about half way down. Security lines were each a couple dozen guests long too. No wait for the trams though. Decided to visit Disneyland where most entry lines were just short of the Monorail beam. Spent some time roaming around Main Street USA and made my way into Tomorrowland.

7 71.3 62.5 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.
