Disneyland Scavenger Hunt for Kids

My family loves Disneyland. And I mean LOVES Disneyland. Even though it is a 7 hour drive to get there, we make it a point to go several times a year and are annual passholders. Normally, we only have time to go for 2-3 days, but thanks to my employer who provides us with a timeshare option, we get to go for a whole week!

To keep the trip interesting I have created a scavenger hunt book which allows my sons a chance to explore parts of the park they may not see or do if we just walked around. I created this book long before I was making tutorials, so I apologize that there are not more photos of the assembly.

You will need:

White cardstock

One piece of thick, sturdy scrapbooking paper

Stickers or scrapbooking supplies as desired

A printer


-and- either a quick trip to Staples, or 2 rings and a hole punch

How to:

Compile a list of finds or activities. Using a word program, set the layout to “landscape” and create two columns. Then, insert two different quests on each side of the page. After you are done you can print them all out on the cardstock, cut the paper in half, and assemble in the order you want them. I took my “book” over to Staples where they spiral bound it for me for just a few dollars. Once bound, you can add scrapbooking embellishments for some flare. I also added a pencil pouch that had a few markers, colored pencils, tape, and a glue stick to help them.

Here is a list of some of our “hunt” quests:


You hold in your hands your very own Disneyland Scavenger hunt book. On each page of the book you will find tasks to complete. Try to complete as many tasks as possible. Write information about what you find on the pages where they are listed. Have fun and be creative!

    COMPLETE as many tasks as possible.
    Use the supplies in the pocket.
    Stick each found item to the page it belongs.
