For a Disney aficionado, nothing compares with a stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. in Walt Disney's original park, and for me, the occasional Hidden Mickey adds to the allure! I'll highlight some new and time-honored Hidden Mickeys along this marvelous street.
Inside the Main Street Magic Shop, along the front counter on the left, a white rope on a display shelf is coiled into a classic Mickey shape. (Thanks to Zoe, and Rosemary and Neil [FindingMickey.com]).
While inside the Magic Shop, look up! Cards are stuck on the ceiling, and a black classic Mickey is in the center of the Ace of Clubs card. (Thanks to Ethan Holmes, and Chris Strodder).
At the entrance to the Penny Arcade, a small classic Mickey hides between the play buttons on a game machine called “Pinocchio, Make Him Dance.” (Thanks to Luis Valdez).
In the Emporium Store, check out a room with toys at the end of the store closest to Carnation Café. A toy train makes a circuit on a track above you along the walls. Stand near the small water tower at one corner of the room. Every third or so trip around the track, the train stops in front of the water tower, and a classic Hidden Mickey lights up at the upper right side of the tower. You can also usually spot the faint Hidden Mickey image when it’s not lit up. (Thanks to Darin Thompson, and Jason Gall).
It's time for ice cream! But before you indulge, study an outside window of the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor. The words “Ice Cream Floats” are on a window to the right, and a pink classic Mickey is midway up the right leg of the letter “A” in the word “Floats.” (Thanks to Amy Gervais).
