I’m a HUGE fan of photo scavenger hunts. It started with the Hidden Mickey search and then progressed to finding other things at Disneyland. I’ve been doing this for a couple years now and have compiled a great library of things to find that aren’t so obvious. I’ll be adding a weekly blog list of five for you find yourself next time you’re at the parks!
What is a Photo Scavenger Hunt?
Basically, you have a list of items that you need to find at Disneyland/California Adventure and photograph as proof that you found it. This list can range from finding “a topiary”, “5 different trash cans” or “3 people in your group wearing Mickey ears”.
What are the rules?
DH and I have agreed that the number one rule breakers is that the item cannot be a souvenir in the shops EXCEPT hats. If you were tasked in finding a photo of Walt Disney and it was printed on a T-shirt in every Disneyland store, that wouldn’t be fair. You’d have to go find a photo somewhere else i.e. Great Moment With Mr. Lincoln.
How do you play?
The first time we played, I made a list of 50 things to find and brought it with me to the park. We would just check off things as we go, but I noticed that the list would get crumpled or wet. Now, I set up a few graphic templates in Photoshop and then uploaded them to an online photo printing site and printed them in a small photo book. It’s beautifully printed and bound and I don’t run the risk of the book getting crumpled.
Here’s what the finished book looks like:
