Ended up heading for Adventureland and stopped by the Enchanted Tiki Room where we had great timing and were one of the last groups to walk in and sit down before the show started. Noticed the Jungle Cruise line looked substantially smaller than the 40 min posted wait on the app (and sign) so we decided to give it a try. Turned out to be 7 minutes. Smugglers Run had a 30 minute wait posted, which we decided to gamble on and see if it was inflated too. It was not.. it took 35 minutes. After our flight we noticed 45 minutes for Rise of the Resistance so headed that way. The wait looked longer but still an hour or less we guessed (and a CM said the same). We were moving good for 25 minutes or so and making progress through the caves then we stopped. The attraction went down. We said we would give it 15 minutes. After 10 minutes they turned the lights on and sound off. We gave up and retreated at our 15 minute limit. We walked through Critter Country and New Orleans Square on my way toward the park exit. Traveled across the Esplanade to Disney California Adventure and up the performance corridor to pick up the Magic Key poster and sunglasses.

15 157.9 151 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.
