Hidden Mickeys and other Hidden Images around Disney World

Many intriguing images are scattered here and there inside AbracadaBar on the BoardWalk. Like this photo of Walt Disney pulling a rabbit out of a hat! Look in the room to your right as you enter the Bar from the outside promenade. This photo of Walt is in the right lower corner of a huge display case next to an exit door at the opposite side of the room. (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).

In Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland, many folks have spotted this image: it's Captain Hook's nemesis - the crocodile - walking upright on the rooftop above Peter Pan's Flight.

While touring France in Epcot, stop by L'Artisan Des Glaces and admire (and taste!) the ice cream. In one of the display cases inside the shop, scoops of ice cream are arranged as classic Mickeys! (Thanks to Tyler and Brandie Bolton).

Stroll over to Germany and consider the following images. Inside the Karamell-Kuche shop, one image is part of the sculpted wood relief design on the wall over a window display facing outside. What do you think? A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Andrew Painter).

Also in Germany, find this image inside the Kunstarbeit in Kristall shop. Gauges that are part of the glassworker's equipment might form a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Helen Vaterlaws-Whiteside).

Possible Hidden Mickeys at the Magic Kingdom and in Epcot's Norway

For years, folks have been spotting the following two images in the Magic Kingdom. The question is: are they legitimate Hidden Mickeys? The first image is in the first room, which is the children's bedroom, along Peter Pan's Flight. Chocolate chip cookies are on a plate on a small tea table to your right. Do the three cookies form a decent classic Mickey? (The size and arrangement of the cookies change at times.)

Another image that folks notice is this one along the Haunted Mansion ride. Near the end of the attic room on your right, three top hats hang on a hat stand. A Hidden Mickey? (A good photo is difficult to get since flash is not allowed on the ride).

Get in line to meet Anna and Elsa at the Royal Summerhus in Norway. Along the inside entrance queue, images at the bottom of several pillar designs on the doorways of the first rooms resemble classic Mickeys. What do you think? (Thanks to The Skazick Family, and Shane G.)
DSC02712.jpg

When you meet Elsa, study the white circles that ring the edge of the large circle in the middle of her carpet. Any sideways Hidden Mickeys here? (Thanks to Tyler).

Hidden Mickeys in Epcot's World Showcase - Italy Pavilion

Take a look at these images from Italy. Some resemble classic Hidden Mickeys more than others. Do any of them work for you?

Along the edge of the rooftop of the Il Bel Cristallo shop are these designs. Do the three circles at the tops of the designs form classic Mickeys? (Thanks to Scott Trask).
DSC02772.jpg

Leaves are part of the sculpted designs at the outside corners of Il Bel Cristallo. Hidden Mickeys? (Thanks to Jager Mitchell).
DSC02767.jpg

What about these swirls at the bottom of cabinets along the inside front wall of Enoteca Castello, the wine shop? (Thanks to Jessica Fraser).
DSC02762.jpg

A large mirror is on the wall along a hallway to the restrooms inside Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. Study the top of the gold design attached to the mirror. Anything resemble a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Austin).

I appreciate all the great Hidden Mickey Hunters out there! Never give up the search!

Hidden Mickeys around Epcot

Along the inside entrance queue of Frozen Ever After, three plates on the wall come together to form a classic Hidden Mickey. At least, it looks purposeful and properly proportioned to me. If you disagree, let me know! To find the image, after you walk into the room to the left (the "Ice Master & Deliverer of Arendelle" room) just inside the building, turn around back toward the entrance door and look above you. (Thanks to Justin Lewicki, AJ Leong, Samantha Ann, and Cherie Sulko).
DSC02673.jpg

Stroll around to the Japan Pavilion for some more images. The rear exhibit area is showcasing "Kawaii - Japan's Cute Culture." In one of the displays, magnets on the upper left of a refrigerator door are arranged like a classic Mickey. (Thanks to Matt Mellarkey, and Jennifer Dickey).
DSC02661.jpg

What about the apples inside the refrigerator? Any Hidden Mickeys in either group of apples? The first three apples are on the top shelf. (Thanks to Jennifer Dickey).
DSC02662.jpg

The second collection of apples is on the bottom shelf.

On your way back to Future World, say hello to Remy. He's standing near the water - just past France - below and to the right of the bridge to the United Kingdom.
DSC02670.jpg

Inside the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Center (the old Wonders of Life Pavilion), three pots and pans in a photo make Mickey. It's hanging on a rear wall, behind a demonstration workshop area. (Thanks to Lindsey Stephens).

Hidden Mickeys in Disney Springs

As Disney Springs develops and fills out with new specialty restaurants and shops, folks are spotting Hidden Mickeys here and there. So, here are a few images to consider.

Walking away from the Lime Garage, you encounter a fountain with green inside tile work. The tile has circles or bubbles in the design, and some of the bubbles come together just above the water line to from classic Hidden Mickeys. Or do they? One collection of three circles is tilted to the right, at the right middle of the photo. (Thanks to Justin Lewicki).
DSC02606.jpg

Inside Amorette's Patisserie, look for the following three images. The first is on a display table right inside the entrance doors. The staff draw chalk classic Hidden Mickeys on small signs around the table that read: "For Display Only." (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).
DSC02625.jpg

On the left wall (as you enter Amorette's), check out a drawing of a lady on the left side of a long bulletin board. The lady is wearing a crochet hat with a pattern of red dots. Three dots at the back of her head and just above the horizontal blue ribbon might form an upside-down classic Mickey? (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).
DSC02633.jpg

At the rear part of the right wall, and behind the counters, you can see the ends of white fabric or cloth rolls in an opening in the cabinetry. See any classic Hidden Mickeys in the stack of rolls - maybe an upside-down Hidden Mickey at the top? (Thanks to Justin Lewicki).

Enjoy the hunt!

Hidden Mickeys at Disney Springs and Epcot

New shops and restaurants at Disney Springs may bring us new Hidden Mickeys. At least, we need to stay alert for new images.

What about these bushes on the top level of the Coca-Cola store at The Landing? They're planted beside the Rooftop Beverage Bar. A classic Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Donna McMurrey).
DSC02575.jpg

Here's another group of bushes in the same location. Hidden Mickey?
DSC02578.jpg

In a previous blog, I posted a possible Hidden Mickey formed by decor wall plates inside Frontera Cocina. Here's another image from the same group of plates, which are on the wall between the restrooms. This image is at the middle left of the photo, and it's tilted to the right. What do you think?
DSC02545.jpg

The Hidden Mickey inside the West Side Starbucks is still present! On a wall inside the seating area, an interactive electronic screen periodically allows you to draw inside white picture frames. Classic Mickeys are in the corners of a frame at the top middle of the screen.
DSC02579.jpg

Over at Epcot, much of Innoventions is undergoing renovations and updates, but Colortopia is still up and running! When you spin wheels in an interactive display on a wall inside Colortopia, colors of the wheels merge into a different color specific for each wheel. Three of the wheels, one on each panel, have partial red and yellow classic Hidden Mickeys that are visible before you spin them. (Thanks to Larry Brooks, and Nick Skiles).

Hidden Mickeys at Kidani Village and Disney Springs

Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village has some awesome Hidden Mickeys . . . and some questionable images. I'd like your opinion on a few images I'm wondering about.

Walk down the rear stairs from the main lobby toward Sanaa Restaurant and study the back surface of the rock wall that supports the stairs you just came down. Near the far right edge (as you face the wall) are these faint impressions in the rock wall. A sideways Hidden Mickey tilted right? (Thanks to Donald Torr).
DSC02517.jpg

Go out the rear door behind you and outside toward the fire pit. Look for a rust-colored series of big rocks to the right of the walkway before you reach the fire pit. Do you see any classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickeys impressed in the rock? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).
DSC02513.jpg

Outside the front entrance of the main lobby and to the right, walk to the Samawati Springs Pool area. You can usually access the area through the entrance gate. Several great Hidden Mickeys, as well as some questionable images, are scattered around this area. Here's an image impressed in the rock in the children's water play area, just to the left of the exit opening of the water slide. It's tilted to the left. What do you think? (Thanks to Keri Madeira).
DSC02530.jpg

These three pebbles are embedded in the short rock wall that borders one side of the children's water play area. They're near the end of the rock wall that's closer to the exit walkway. Hidden Mickey?
DSC02541.jpg

Recently, I had a tasty dinner of authentic Mexican food at Frontera Cocina in The Landing, Disney Springs. Various plates hang on the wall between the restrooms inside. There's got to be one or more decent classic Hidden Mickeys among the plates, don't you think? What about this one?

Hidden Mickeys can be fun!

Hidden Mickeys on the BoardWalk

Take a look a some questionable images inside recently opened AbracadaBar on the BoardWalk, adjacent to the Flying Fish Restaurant. After you walk inside through the main entrance door from the BoardWalk promenade, turn around and stare above the door you came through. Keys are on both sides of a design above the "Exit" sign. What about the ends of the keys - sideways classic Hidden Mickeys? Looks close, right? (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).
DSC02480.jpg

To the left of the same "Exit" sign is a 'club' suit playing card symbol: an upside-down Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).
DSC02482.jpg

A similar club suit image is in the wallpaper on the walls of the hallway to the restrooms.
DSC02470.jpg

How about this lock hanging on a wall in the hallway to the restrooms? Many locks with similar shapes can be found around Walt Disney World. Is this lock close enough to count as a classic Hidden Mickey?
DSC02472.jpg

Over inside the newly renovated Flying Fish Restaurant are a few images to consider. Like this one: in the small waiting area in front of the check-in counter, suggestive circles are in the side supports of a bench. Any Hidden Mickeys here?
DSC02493.jpg

Always study new carpets! This is the new Flying Fish carpet - what do you think?
DSC02496.jpg

Here's a lighting fixture on a wall of the room at the rear of the Flying Fish Restaurant. Do the circles suggest anything?

Hidden Mickeys around Walt Disney World

I want to take you around Walt Disney World to find various images that may or may not be Hidden Mickeys. Let me know what you think.

On "it's a small world," a scene of Great Britain is in the first room to the left of your boat. In the architectural design of one of the buildings, do you see an "M M" design that might represent the first letters of "Mickey Mouse"? (Thanks to Kimberly Rosati).
DSC02305.jpg

As an aside, you know that Hidden Mickeys disappear from time to time. While enjoying "Living with the Land" at Epcot, I was quite disappointed to discover that the great wire mesh Hidden Minnie in the shrimp tubes was gone! I hope she returns, but at least the Hidden Mickey was still there.
DSC02255.jpg

This next one is certainly not a purposeful image, but we do look for Hidden Mickeys everywhere, don't we? This television sits in the Tune-In Lounge next to 50's Prime Time Cafe in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Do the dials and screen make a Mickey? (Thanks to the Hade Family).
DSC02386.jpg

Over at the Grand Floridian Resort, this painting on the wall behind the cashier's counter at the front of the M. Mouse Mercantile shop changes at times. Look for two Mickey images in the current painting: one is a shadow of Mickey hat ears on the ground, and the second image is a classic Mickey formed by bushes at the shore line across the water. I hope this painting sticks around! (Thanks to Annie P.).
DSC02294.jpg

Also at the Grand Floridian, find this mural on the lower level of the lobby to the left of the scenic elevator doors. A trio of leaves hangs just below the right side of the rim of the vase. A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).
DSC02296.jpg

The hunt for Hidden Mickeys lives on!

Questionable Hidden Mickeys in the Disneyland Resort

Take a look at some images from Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. The first photo is from the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square. In the stretching room, one picture shows an alligator with gaping jaws under a woman on a tightrope. Do any of the alligator's green, round scales form a classic, three-circle Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Lisa Sentif, and Jason Gall.)
DSC00131.jpg

Inside the Silver Spur Supplies store in Frontierland, a photo of John Wesley Hardin (a notorious outlaw who became a lawyer) hangs on a wall in a room to the right as you enter the store. Just to the left of his right (as you face the photo) forearm, a design in the cabinetry woodwork has markings that resemble a face. Is it Mickey's face? (Thanks to Bobby Naus and friend).
DSC04324.JPG

At Pacific Wharf in Disney California Adventure, order something sweet at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. While you're waiting for your just reward, study a mural at the right side of the rear wall behind the counters. A tree stands in a sidewalk along a street and to the right of a red trolley. Do the round leaf clusters at the top middle of the tree (or anywhere in the tree) make a classic Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Sharon Gee).
DSC00080.jpg

In Cars Land, check out Sarge's Surplus Hut. As you enter, three green tarp rolls or mats are stacked high on a shelf along a wall to your right. An upside-down classic Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Madison Dunn, and Sharon Gee).
DSC00051.jpg

Have fun with the search!
