Many thanks to Nick for the first benchmark reported at one of the resorts! This one is next to the tennis courts at the BoardWalk Villas, on the walkway to Disney-MGM Studios. Link to waymark.

This is an interesting trio of marks that Nick found near the Grand Floridian Wedding Pavilion. Note also the numbering system that's very different from the ones we've been finding in the parks.

I'm pleased to add the Polynesian Resort to our survey mark collection. Thanks to Nick for finding this between the beach and the Hawaii longhouse. Link to waymark.

Poly-3
It turns out that Poly-1 has a couple of siblings just to the east, also along the walkway between the beach and the Hawaii longhouse. Scott found them in June, 2006. I've named this one (marked "2-5") Poly-3, and the other one (marked "3-8") Poly-4. Link to waymark.

According to Nick, this mark is at the east end of the Poly's beach, east of the Tahiti longhouse. The ferries in the picture are the ones that run the from the Transporation & Ticket Center to the Magic Kingdom. Link to waymark.

Nick then checked as much of the rest of the curb as he could (the parts that weren't obscured by overgrown grass), and he found another marker at the west end of that same beach. This one is just west of the Tahiti longhouse (visible in the background). Link to waymark.

FW-1
During a ramble around Fort Wilderness in September, 2005, Nick found *three* marks around the Outpost. This first one is a full-size mark. It's on the parking lot side of the building, where the Magic Express buses pull up. Link to waymark.

Nick then went through the Outpost lobby to the area where people line up to check in their RVs and campers. Just outside that door, he found a mini-marker. Link to waymark.

He then started walking around the building back toward the front (bus entrance). He quickly found another mini-marker in the sidewalk. Link to waymark.

Our first report at Shades of Green, the hotel for military and civilian U.S. Dept. of Defense personnel at WDW! Congratulations to Sam for finding this one in May, 2006.
