Disney benchmark?

While on vacation, I happened upon a Disney World survey marker at Epcot Center. I snapped a pic with a digital camera, but I didn't have a GPS with me, nor did I take pics of the surrounding area. I didn't find it in the NGS database, probably because it's on private property.

I'm not sure what to do with this, but I thought I'd share it with y'all.

It is one of the aluminum markers that disney sets to 'subdivide' the areas of its park. I don't know if it is in a public record, but they used them exclusively on disney lands.

 

The disks are made by Bernsen Int. for Disney and come in aluminum and brass.

 

Since you are in Ca.. next time you go to the Disneyland in LA, walk up main street to near the statue of Walt.. look down and around along the centerline of the street.. there's a brass one there.. and a second one at the next plaza on the way to Cinderellas Castle.

 

(An occupational hazard.. I tend to spot things like that and rememember them..)
