We present results of a survey of eight transitional and pre-transitional disks using sparse aperture masking interferometry to search for protoplanetary companions and disk features indicative of on going planet formation. We find evidence for previously unseen companions in three of our targets and a previously unresolved disk wall in another. We discuss and compare these results to other observations of these targets.
