There is SO much to see and do throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, it feels like your senses are constantly in overdrive! Look up, smell this, taste that … we’re all a bit like Alice in Wonderland trying to experience EVERYTHING! Some details are bright and colorful, some are subtle scents in the air, and some practically blend into their surroundings, making it a bit of a game to notice them.
One example of the latter are the survey markers throughout the Disney properties. Small, subtle details on the pavement, you could easily walk past these without noticing them.
So what is a survey marker, anyways? Not exclusive to Disney properties, survey markers are used to mark key land points or elevations on around the globe. What is unique to Disney is the symbol of our favorite Mouse imprinted on the marker, making them a fun Hidden Mickey to discover throughout your vacation!
These survey markers can be found all throughout the Disney properties: in the theme parks, around the resorts, and even the Transportation and Ticket Center! On your next trip, why not have a friendly competition between your travel companions to see who can find the most survey markers? I’ll even give you a hint to start off your survey marker hunt: the one in the image above can be found outside the Odyssey Center in Epcot! Good luck! 🙂
