2018 Year in Review Stats

2018 year in review - 4 castles
Enchanted Storybook Castle in Shanghai Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, Cinderella Castle at Tokyo Disneyland and Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World

Since we are geeks here as we wrap up 2018 I thought I would share some of my stats. 2018 was another busy year and I was lucky enough to be able to visit Disney parks quite a few times and share those experiences. In the process of this I racked up a lot of miles on my tennis shoes and shutter clicks on my camera. I was able to visit Shanghai Disneyland for the first time and can once again say I have visited all the Disney Parks world wide. In 2018 I visited 9 of 12 Disney Parks at 4 of 6 Resorts.
