Disney California Adventure (DCA) Cache
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a Multi-Virtual Geocache at Disney California Adventure (DCA).
If you are not familiar with the park, it is co-located just south) of Disneyland (the original California one, not Disneyworld!). It used to be the parking lot. The clue answers are (hopefully!) permanently placed letters or numbers or maybe something to count. Nothing is hidden anywhere. There are some "brain benders" and possibly tricky questions. Think before you write down that answer! Don't expect the clue answers you are writing down to spell anything, but just email your answers (letters & numbers) to us through this website for verification, or assistance, or hints. PLEASE wait for our email confirmation before logging a find. Finds logged before we receive correct answers might be deleted with no further notice. Remember, one wrong letter or number and you will need to keep trying (lots of hints / help given if necessary). Have fun! If you get stuck, email hints might be available from us, time allowing …….
Thanks to Disneyland Virtual Cache creator HomeChicken for the idea and assistance.
The same waypoint data is contained in a GSAK (.gpx) file that I can email to you on request (links to get GSAK free is elsewhere on this site), so you won't have to hand-enter the coords. As always, buildings and trees can be a problem.
