    Walking distances at DLR

    Using the awesomeness that is Microsoft's Live Search Maps, I calculated some walking distances around the resort. I was bored.

    Disneyland entrance to most distant point (Splash Mountain entrance, also western end of Toon Town): .45 miles

    DCA entrance to most distant point (TSMM, also Maliboomer): .4 miles

    Disneyland entrance to DCA entrance: .06 miles

    Downtown Disney Monorail station to DL or DCA entrance: .33 miles

    DLH to DTD Monorail station: .1 miles

    So that means the two most distant points in the resort (not including the parking structure) are Splash Mountain and Toy Story Midway Mania, a walking distance of .91 miles.

    From the DLH to Splash Mountain is .89 miles.

    Next time I go to Disneyland, I think I'm going to do laps: Splash Mountain, Toy Story Midway Mania, SM, TSMM, etc. - repeat until closing or I drop.

    Anybody want to double check my math?

    That's pretty cool. I've always wondered the distances there. Thanks for doing the "leg work".

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    Im contemplating taking a pedometer with me. Someone recently said they did 13 miles in a day! That sounds like alot, but I guess its easy to do over the course of a day.
    ....You think your so powerful? Well this is my dream....

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    Thanks for the info Mojave!

    I always figured that the DL entrance to Splash was the farthest point and so that's why I tend to head that way if I'm there at opening or thereabouts.

    I'm quite interested in doing the Gumball Rally next year so the other info will be helpful as well.

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    Nice work MOJAVE! I appreciate that......

    Considering all that walking, it always makes me laugh when people want to get the 'closest' parking spot to the escalators/elevators.......I mean, they are about to embark upon a huge walking experience.....another couple hundred steps isn't going to kill them.....but I say that pointing back at me.....I am always jockeying for the closest of closest spots......I want to save my feet for the parks, you know?

    Might you be able to divulge how many steps it is from corner to corner in the M&F Parking structure???

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    I once took a pedometer with me and I did well over 10k steps that day.. It ended up being in the 1,100 range ( I don't remember my exact number).. I remember being tired and discouraged and wondered how in the world to walk that many when you are NOT in the park!

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    Walking doesn't bother me. It really doesn't. Often times, we like to walk from the tram drop off to the M&F Parking Stucture - or vice versa. It's a nice walk......but my son LOVES the Tram, so we have been 'tramming' it as of late.....

    If you walk from the farthest corner of the Parking structure, down the lanes without cutting through cars, then turn right to the escalators and on to the tram stop, it's .33 miles. Of course, if you cut, it will be shorter. Also, I never get parked at the far corner. I'd say on average, I walk .15 miles in the parking structure.

    Now, from the tram stop, the walking distance to DL/DCA entrance is .67 miles. So if you park as far away as possible and walk to the entrance, you've already done 1 full mile before even getting into DL!

    it doesnt seem like that much because you're always so distracted by whats going on around you but it doesnt surprise me that those are the distances.....you could easily get 5 or 6 miles a day in

    I did the same thing. I wanted to see how many miles I was walking in one full day trip to the parks. I even skipped the trams and walked back and forth from the park to the Mickey and friends parking structure.

    Wow, thats quite a bit of walking if you are there all day. I have no issue with walking long distances, who would have thought being at the happiest place on earth would give you a good work out...

    Re: Walking distances at DLR

    I too have always wondered this. I wanted to get a pedometer just for Disneyland...
    But these numbers are awesome! My friend and I feel less guilty when we eat lots of junk there because we are walking it off more than normal! HAHA
