1/17/20 11.1 23,450 9 Arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch. No line at the toll booth I choose and was quickly directed in a spot on the far side of the roof of the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. Walked down the steps to plaza and no line at security or the tram. Decided to make my way to Disneyland to start the visit. Once in the park took a look at available FastPasses and picked one up for World of Color and for Toy Story for later. Spent some time on Main Street USA then roamed around the hub before making my way into Tomorrowland. Took a walk through the Star Traders then continued around the sub lagoon and out to the small world mall area. Made a quick pass through Toontown then walked back through Fantasyland. Saw the Pearly Band with Mary Poppins and Bert on the Carousel then made my way out to the Big Thunder Trail. Wandered through Black Spire Outpost and the resistance forest on my way to Critter Country. Walked along the Rivers of America and stopped to watch the Disneyland Band in Frontierland. Doubled back to Adventureland and returned to Main Street USA. Crossed the Esplanade to Disney California Adventure and strolled up Buena Vista Street and the Parade Route. Stopped to take a look at the Avengers Campus project along the parade route then from Cars Land. Took a look at available FastPasses and was able to pick one up for Radiator Springs Racers. Walked around Cars Land and then took Cross Street to the Wharf and out to Paradise Gardens Park to catch a performance of Mulan's Lunar New Year Procession. Took a look around at the Lunar New Year decorations, merchandise and marketplaces before walking through Grizzly Recreation Area and grabbing dinner at Smokejumpers Grill. Returned to Paradise Gardens Park area for the last procession of the day. Made my way to Paradise Gardens to see the rest of the Lunar New Year festivities. Talked to some friends there and listened to the Melody of China group perform. Continued on to Pixar Pier. The line for the Pixar Pal-A-Round was longer than my patience so instead used a FastPass for Toy Story Midway Mania then made my way to Cars Land to use my Radiator Springs Racers FastPass. After my ride headed for Hollywood Land to take a look around before returning to Disneyland. Made my way out to it's a small world to use a FastPass and then walked back down the parade route and through the hub to Frontierland on my way to New Orleans Square to use a FastPass for Haunted Mansion Holiday. Strolled through Critter Country and out to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge. Walked through the forest and around Black Spire Outpost before exiting into Fantasyland. Looked at FastPass choices and picked up Star Tours as I walked toward Tomorrowland. Stopped at th eTLT Dance Club at Tomorrowland Terrace then used my Star Tours FastPass. Decided to return to California Adventure and check out the World of Color scene. I saw a good Standby spot so stood there vs using my yellow FastPass. Watched the Hurry Home Lunar New Year preshow and then the opening sequences of World of Color. Decided it was time to call it a night about the Wall-E segment. Returned to the tram stop and was directed to a loadzone and was able to board the first tram that arrived. Back at the parking structure found my car and headed for home.

1/03/20 11.4 24,189 9 Arrived at the Disneyland Resort just after lunch. I choose a poor tollbooth line, only three cars but every car had an issue and it took substantially longer than all the other lines. Was eventually directed into a spot in the middle of the Goofy level. Walked down the steps and found no wait at security or to board a tram. Started my park time at Disneyland. Roamed around Main Street USA and the hub before making my way into Tomorrowland. Stopped by the Star Wars Launch Bay and then walked to Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Crossed the Esplanade to Disney California Adventure. Strolled up Buena Vista Street and the parade route to Paradise Gardens. Along the way stopped for some Avengers Campus pictures. Took a look around at the Three Kings Celebration then walked back through the Wharf and Cars Land. Returned to Disneyland and enjoyed a performance by the Dapper Dans in Town Square followed by the Disneyland Band. Then walked up the parade route and out to it's a small world to use a FastPass I picked up earlier. After my cruise walked back through Fantasyland and the Castle to reach Main Street. The west bypass was open so took that to avoid the parade congestion on Main Street. Crossed back to Disney California Adventure and made my way out to Paradise Gardens Park to watch Mickey's Happy Holidays. The crowd was heavy and my spot not very good so I left and walked back to Carthay Circle and watched the show from there. Stopped by Smokejumpers Grill for dinner then walked through Hollywood Land before making my way out to Paradise Gardens Park to watch the Holiday Toy Drummers. Caught the opening of the Sound performance then found a spot for the 5:30pm Viva Navidad performance. After the show walked through Grizzly Recreation Area and over to the Grand Californian Hotel. Caught a performance of the Holiday Handbell Carolers in the lobby on my way to Downtown Disney. Stopped by the west end stage to hear the performing group and saw the new Asian Street Eats trailer was open. Walked back through Downtown Disney and returned to Disney California Adventure. Stopped by Cars Land on my way to Paradise Gardens Park for the 7pm Phat Cat Swinger Holiday Concert. After their performance visited with the friend for a while then made my way back to Disneyland. Saw the 8:30pm Wintertime Enchantment then met another friend and used a FastPass for Star Tours. After my flight took a walk through the Holiday Dance Party then returned to Main Street USA to find a spot for Beleive in Holiday Magic.

2 22.5 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.
