Walked through Paradise Park and out to Paradise Gardens. Turned around and walked back through the Bay Area and around Grizzly River Run, by Redwood Creek, and through the airfield on my way to Downtown Disney to meet friends at La Brea Bakery for dinner. After dinner roamed around Downtown Disney visiting and taking in some of the entertainment. Returned to DCA and walked around the Wharf and Cars Land before heading back to Disneyland. Circled the hub again before stopping by Tomorrowland. Found a seat there for a while then headed out to small world for a look at the lights.

1/06/17 7.9 20,996 9 Arrived at a sunny Disneyland Resort just after lunch. Was quickly directed into a spot on the roof of the Mickey and Friends parking structure. Spent some time taking pictures of the Star Wars construction then headed for security and the trams. First park today, Disneyland. Arrived at Disneyland as guests were lining up for the 1:30 parade. Made my way through the parade crowd and into Frontierland. Took a look at the Star Wars construction from there then walked around the Rivers of America and did the same in Critter Country. Worked my way back through New Orleans Square and Adventureland on my way to Fantasyland by way of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Walked by Small World then circled Toontown before walking back around the Matterhorn and into Tomorrowland. Returned to Main Street and decided to head for Disney California Adventure. Took Buena Vista Street to Hollywood Blvd to Sunset. Passed through the Fun Fair then took Cross Street to the Wharf and onto the Pier. Made my way to Paradise Gardens to see the Three Kings Day festivities and storytellers. After the performance continued around Paradise Pier and into the Grizzly Recreation area. Stopped by Redwood Creek then the AP Days table before returning to the Wharf. Picked up some chocolate at Ghirardelli then waited for a performance by the Holiday Toy Drummers. After their set decided it was time for some dinner so walked over to the Grand Californian and White Water Snacks. After dinner passed through the Grand Californian Lobby and out to Downtown Disney. Wandered around taking in some of the entertainment and then returned to Disneyland. Worked my way through the gathering crowd to the hub then circled back to find a spot on Main Street for Believe in Holiday Magic. After the fireworks inched through the crowd to the hub. The app said only a 5 minute wait for the Jingle Cruise so decided to head that way.. which meant a very slow (and some times not moving) trek through Frontierland and then into Adventureland. Arrived at the attraction to find a slightly longer wait but decided to go for one last cruise of the season. Once back on shore it was time to return to DCA. Wandered through the park and back to Paradise Pier. Waited for the Standby viewing area for World of Color to open then found a spot and watched the show. After Season of Light followed the large crowd out of the park. Boarded a tram and headed for the garage, my car, and home.

2 16.5 18 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.
