Ron W. wrote me about an interesting Hidden Mickey image in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in the Grizzly Peak section of California Adventure. Climb up stairs to the Mt. Whitney Lookout and check out the phonetic spelling alphabet (also known as the NATO phonetic alphabet and more accurately as the International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet) on a sheet of paper atop a table in the Lookout room. The word for "M" in the official phonetic spelling alphabet is "Mike." But this is Disney! So the word for "M" is, you guessed it, Mickey! (I think "Mickey" would work just as well).
Vickie and I enjoy Fantasyland whenever we visit Disneyland, California. Here we can reconnect with Mr. Toad, since he no longer has his own attraction at Walt Disney World. Mr. Toad greets you along the inside entrance queue to Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
I like to pay my respects to the tiny red Hidden Mickey in Mr. Toad's right eye.
I finally got a decent photo of the shadow of Sherlock Holmes in an upper window of the Constabulary building along Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Find him to your left midway through the ride after you leave Winky's Pub.
