Geek Disneyland Trips
1/27/23 14.4 30,484 14 Arrived in Anaheim about 6:45am and stopped for breakfast. While eating prepared for the 7am virtual queue attempt. I was lucky and secured a boarding group for Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway. After breakfast drove over to the parking structure and was directed into a spot on the Monsters Inc level of the Pixar Pals structure. No wait at security, for a tram, or to enter the park. Once inside Disneyland wandered around Main Street USA and made my way toward the hub for rope drop. Followed the crowd into Frontierland and made my way along the Rivers of America and over to the Haunted Mansion Holiday. After my visit to the mansion back tracked to the hub to get a look at Sleeping Beauty Castle and walked into Fantasyland. Went for a ride with Mr. Toad and then continued on to the small world mall. Took a look toward Toontown but had time before my boarding group so decided to go for a cruise on it's a small world since there was no wait. Once back ashore spent some time hanging out in the old motorboat area. Then decided to walk around the Matterhorn to Tomorrowland to get some pictures of the new Disney100 Monorail wrap. Returned to Main Street USA and took a look around at some of the Disney100 decorations, windows and gallery exhibit before my boarding group was called.

3 33.9 34 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.
