Hidden Mickeys at The Magic of Disney Animation, Disney's Hollywood Studios
At Disney's Hollywood Studios, I like to check out the Animation Studios from time to time. As you know, this area is not static, but for a while now, the Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy) theater show has entertained guests. You can choose to bypass the show and walk to the indoor character greeting areas (and queue up for The Animation Academy if you want) and return to the Mushu theater at show time. Outside the theater is a plaza with cement squares commemorating a few Disney Legends.
Mickey is traced in Ward Kimball's square.
During the video theater show, a Cast Member interacts with an animated Mushu (the dragon from Mulan). Many Disney figures are on display on the desks and cabinets at the rear of the stage of the theater show. These images change at times, but you can still spot the classic Mickey at the end of a pencil sticking out of a container on the top of the animator's desk in the middle of the stage, as well as the Mickey balloons on the large round button at the top left of the animator's drawing board on the front of the desk.
Look for the coffee mug with a classic Mickey on a middle shelf on the right side of the animator's desk.
I spotted a Mickey figurine peeking over the edge of the lower shelf at the far right of the stage, visible as you exit the theater.
Check out these Mickey images the next time you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios!
