    Here's How Many Miles You Walk During A Day At Disneyland

    I took a Fitbit to Disney to find out.

    A day at Disneyland is guaranteed fun. It's also guaranteed exhaustion...but in the best way possible!

    I've often wondered just how much exercise you get during a full day there. So, I decided to conduct an experiment. I took my Fitbit (which measures steps, miles, calories, etc.) to Disney to see just how many miles you walk in a day.

    As for my own prediction, here's what I'm thinking...

    OK. Let's start this magical day...

    7:30 a.m.: Breakfast at home.

    9:20 a.m.: Arrival at Disneyland. I am wearing these shoes, which I will later find out are not adequate footwear. As a general rule of thumb, sneakers you have owned since your freshman year of college should probably be replaced.

    9:30 a.m.–12:20 p.m.: Jam-packed morning!

    12:30 p.m.: First Fitbit check-in.

    12:30–2 p.m.: Head to California Adventure for snacks.

    2–3 p.m.: Head back to Disneyland, have another treat.

    3:20 p.m.: Second Fitbit check-in.

    3:30–5:30 p.m.: Fighting crowds and a few more rides.

    The late afternoon consists of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Tarzan's Treehouse (feel the burn climbing those stairs!), and a bit of a time-out — exhaustion is beginning to set in.

    5:30–6:30 p.m.: Dinner at Wine Country Trattoria in California Adventure.

    6:30–7:30 p.m.: Radiator Springs Racers and wandering.

    7:30 p.m.: Third Fitbit check-in.

    7:30–9 p.m.: Winding down.

    Which brings us to...

    9:15 p.m.: THE FINAL TALLY. Are you ready?

    So what about food and calories burned? Here are the stats from my Fitbit app for the entire day.

    In conclusion: A day at Disneyland can be an amazing workout.
