A Day at Disney's Hollywood Studios with Friends and Hidden Mickeys

I enjoyed an afternoon at Disney's Hollywood Studios with my sister Donna (on the right in the photo) and two friends from Texas, Laurie and her daughter Becky.

On The Great Movie Ride, the two Pocahontas bulletins are still there in the Western scene, one bulletin on a wall behind the barber pole to the right of the vehicle.

and the second just past John Wayne to the left on a wood fence.

I've been debating about this image for a while. It's the small concentration of light on the screen in front of the airplane headlight in the Casablanca scene along The Great Movie Ride. What do you think, is the image a Hidden Mickey?

Alas, I have another Lost Hidden Mickey to report. Outside and above the Keystone Clothiers shop, the billboard has changed and no longer shows the girl crouched over Mickey's handprints in the cement. The photo shows the new billboard.

Before dinner, we were treated to a steel drum musician in the lobby of the Dolphin Resort! He definitely brought a Caribbean flavor to the Dolphin that day. He's playing in front of the lobby chairs that have classic Mickey circles in the design of the chair backs and sides.

Hidden Mickeys at Coral Reef Restaurant and the Outpost

One rainy weekend afternoon, Vickie and I visited Epcot for dinner in the Coral Reef Restaurant at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion. I hadn't enjoyed the Coral Reef for a while, so I was looking forward to searching for Hidden Mickeys there. I found a great Mickey image on the lower level of the restaurant, between the first and second booths to the right of the middle aisle, facing the aquarium. This classic Mickey is made of three dark green circular tiles at the upper end of an eel-shaped image on the short wall partition behind the booths. (Thanks to Taricia, Jim Cheslin, and Cameron McGuire).

I like to check on another Hidden Mickey whenever I'm visiting the Coral Reef Restaurant. It's made of three dark circular tiles on the upper middle front of a short wall on the right side, as you descend the middle aisle, on the second level. Face the aquarium and crouch low to spot this great image.

We were greeted by a group of divers in the aquarium, including a young boy and his father. Here's the youngster waving at the dry diners.

After I polished off a delicious salmon entree, some of the servers proudly showed me Hidden Mickeys on their vests! You can see several dark classic Mickeys scattered around in the fabric. (Thanks to Alyson Fair).

I met up with Marc Lorenzo and Kaylene Jablecki (of the prestigious Disney Moms Panel) and her son Shawn, and we looked for Hidden Mickeys at the Outpost in World Showcase. A piece of brown luggage is perched high on a rear wall in the left room inside the Village Traders shop. The luggage tag is signed "M. Mouse," and a red sticker on the bottom says "Mickey Mouse" and "Disney Magic." Very cool! (Thanks to Darrel Williamson.)
