Our first AK benchmark! Many thanks to Lloyd for finding this one near bus stop #11. JJ contributed a photo of it taken a few months later, in May, 2004. Because of the recent addition of Pop Century and Saratoga Springs, the bus stops were reassigned and stop #11 now goes to different hotels than when Lloyd took his photos. Link to waymark.

Nick has found a second survey mark at Animal Kingdom. Well, in the parking lot, anyway. Are all the ones in the park itself hidden by foliage? Let me know if you find one! Anyway, this one is on a sidewalk on the north side of the parking lot, beside the Peacock 3 row. Link to waymark.

Andy provided another view of this mark in a photo he took in October, 2015.

JJ contributed this photo of another benchmark in the Animal Kingdom bus stop area. This one is near stop 14, the stop for buses to the TTC. The second photo shows the locations of both DAK-1 and DAK-3. Link to waymark.

Marks DAK-1 and DAK-3

Nick found this one between the security check and the turnstiles, near the entrance to Rainforest Cafe. The sign in the picture is the restaurant's menu display. This one has the number PI-1611201 stamped on it. Link to waymark.
