How far do you walk in a week at WDW?

Every time we come back from Disney World, I wonder just how far we actually walked while there. As we all know, a Disney vacation is a walking vacation for the most part. Has anyone ever worn a pedometer or something and figured out how may miles/kilometers you cover in an average trip?

And the other thing I wonder about is all the people jogging every day there. I mean, you walk SO much during they day.

I would love to know how much we actually walk. My Fiance thinks he's going to go for a run or two on our Disneymoon. I just laughed. After he sees how much walking he's going to be doing he's gonna scratch that idea. Does anyone know the actually distance around any of the parks?

Yea. We "thought" we would work out while on the Disney cruise.... laugh AND we work out faithfully at home. We do a lot of walking at WDW and I have often wondered that as well. It has to be miles and miles. We walk around the world showcase a bunch!

Well, it's a mile around World Showcase, this I know. Smile

I always try to follow my running schedule when I'm there, because it actually makes my walking easier somehow. I get to work out the soreness from walking or something. Also, I like to take advantage of the low altitude. laugh

I'm not sure how far I walk while there, but I do always follow my regular workout schedule every day while on vacation - no matter how much I plan to walk. Like taratru, it seems as if the exercise makes it easier for me to get around and my feet hurt less.
Plus I also don't feel like walking around Disney is good quality walking. We stop and start so much and move at a much slower pace. I can use it to justify a waffle in the morning, but I never thought about tracking it. I think it's an interesting topic though. I might take my pedometer this time and see how I do. Maybe I'll change my mind. crossfingers

NHShorty wears a high-tech pedometer all the time, and during our WDW trip in May of 2012 I included her "mileage" at the end of each day's trip report.

I have worn a pedometer in the past and at WDW I generally cover 8-10 miles a day.

Wow, some great info here. Thanks for the replies. It looks like quite a distance is covered in each trip!

My friend just went down and used her Nike Sportswatch and said she walked 10 mi a day, which seems amazing to me. I plan to wear mine when I'm down there as well. It will be good to see how many calories are burned, even though I'm sure it will be only a mere fraction of what I eat!!
