A Hidden Mickeys Tour
Just after noon, I met up with Bret and his family outside 50's Prime Time Cafe. Bret is a member of the Disney Moms Panel, and we'd recorded a Hidden Mickeys video segment for the Panel last September. In the photo, Bret and his children, Allie and Peter, are in front of The Great Movie Ride.
Later, I caught up with Marc Lorenzo and relatives at Epcot's Camera Center near Spaceship Earth. At an auction for Lou Mongello's Dream Team Project during Fred Block's MagicMeets this summer, Marc bid on a Hidden Mickeys Tour with me, and he won!
We wandered around Epcot this sunny afternoon, checking on Mickey. In the photo, Marc and Josiah (his son) are standing with me in front of the Mexico pavilion. (I'm the one in the hat).
Marc's sister Melissa and her daughter Carolyn were also with us. We enjoyed a few great Hidden Mickeys on Spaceship Earth and Journey into Imagination with Figment. I like to show folks a classic Mickey on the cement path at the rear of Mouse Gear shop. This image was discovered several years ago by a child, and it will probably stick around a while!
The classic Mickey made of rocks at the bottom of the aquarium in The Seas with Nemo & Friends pavilion is moved around from time to time. We found it through a window at the end of the circular observation area on the second level.
We meandered around World Showcase, spotting Hidden Mickeys along the way and taking in the Gran Fiesta ride several times. Marc and Melissa tasted chocolate eclairs at Boulangerie Patisserie in France. I think the tour was a success; at least I had a great time!
