Disneyland/DCA Benchmarks
Description:
Survey marks placed by Disney surveyors at the Disneyland Resort in California. The Disneyland Resort includes the Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure theme parks, Downtown Disney, and three hotels. Please see “Walt Disney World Benchmarks” for Disney survey marks in Florida.
Expanded Description:

As on public land, developers of private property need to survey it to ensure that roads, buildings, and other structures are properly sited. Sometimes, surveyors use temporary survey marks. Other times, they install (“monument”) metal disks or other markers that are designed to mark a precise location for decades or even centuries to come.

The Walt Disney Company has monumented a number of survey marks at the Disneyland Resort in California. Although we would never suggest that looking for survey marks is the most important part of a Disney vacation, we hope that having this category will encourage more Disneyland visitors to keep an eye out for these often-overlooked but fun to spot objects. Think of it as a ground-level “hidden Mickey” hunt! (Speaking of which, you may also want to check out the Hidden Mickeys waymarking category.)

You can find out more about these markers on Patty's Disney benchmarks page.

Instructions for Posting a Disneyland/DCA Benchmarks Waymark:

The process for creating a waymark for a Disneyland benchmark is quite simple.

First, make sure that your benchmark is somewhere at the Disneyland Resort in California. If it is at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, please create your waymark in that category instead. IF YOU FIND A BENCHMARK AT ANY OTHER DISNEY PROPERTY, PLEASE CONTACT ONE OF DISNEY BENCHMARK CATEGORY MANAGERS.

Next, make sure that the benchmark you want to enter is not already listed.

We require the following pieces of information for a new Disneyland/DCA Benchmark waymark:

1. Date found
2. Location
3. Style/Size
4. Designation (if any)

Please also upload a closeup photo and a location photo. If the mark isn’t easily visible in the location shot, please use photo-editing software to indicate its location with an arrow or circle.


Naming Your Waymark

For clarity, we ask you to use the name of the property as the first part of the nickname, followed by a short phrase that gives the mark's general location. Some examples might be:

Disneyland--Matterhorn
California Adventure--Redwood Creek Challenge Trail
Downtown Disney--Walkway to tram

Feel free to drop a note to the category manager if you have any questions about creating a new waymark. Have fun!

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

Unless otherwise noted, we require one photo to prove that you visited a Disneyland benchmark waymark. Many of the marks are identical, so please submit a location photo rather than a closeup. It needs to clearly show the marker with enough surrounding area that we can tell which part of the park, hotel, etc. you were in.

If the benchmark is difficult to see in the photo, please use a simple photo-editing program to add a circle or arrow for the mark's location.
