A Visit to Art of Animation Resort and its Hidden Mickeys

One Sunday afternoon, Vickie and I stopped by the Art of Animation Resort to check out Hidden Images.

What do you think about this image? It's on a large blue rock to the right of the steps, directly opposite the rear exit doors from Animation Hall, just after you pass through the entrance gate to the Big Blue Pool. (Thanks to She-Knows-CA, Laurie and Becky Bloodworth, and Donna McMurrey).

I've been debating these images for a while. You can find them in a Treasure Chest in the courtyard of The Little Mermaid section. The first one is made of a blue gem and two gold coins. Do you think it qualifies to be a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Deb Wills, Allison Laudage, and Mary Jo Collins)

The second one is made of three gold coins. Is this image a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Mary Jo Collins, Sherrie Cotton, and Justin Lewicki).

On the other hand, I think the following is a true Hidden Mickey. It's made of three orange spots on green seaweed under a clam design. You can find this image repeated in several of the clam designs along the inside of the guest room buildings, facing the pool of The Little Mermaid section. (Thanks to Justin Lewicki.)

Enjoy the Hunt!

A Few New Hidden Mickeys at Disneyland

Some folks had written to me about Hidden Mickeys in the new areas of Fantasyland in Disneyland, California. I like to visit Disneyland whenever I can, especially to check out new Hidden Mickey sightings. Check out these images!

In Fantasy Faire, you can meet your favorite princesses at the Royal Hall and enjoy a Princess-themed show at the Royal Theatre (check your Times Guide).

In Fantasy Faire, locate Clopin's Music Box for some interesting images. To refresh, Clopin is the leader of the gypsies in the Disney movie "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."

Look to the far left inside the Music Box to spot this classic three-circle Mickey at the top of the second window from the left. (Thanks to Nikolas Tejeda).

At the other side of Fantasyland is the Fantasyland Theatre, where you can enjoy the high-tech show "Mickey and the Magical Map." Watch the backdrop of the stage for floating classic Hidden Mickey images. (Thanks to Sherrie Cotton and Sharon Gee).

Follow along in the show as Mickey interacts with an elusive black splotch. At one point, just for a second, the round splotch forms a classic Mickey! (Thanks to Sherrie Cotton and Sharon Gee).

With any new Disney offerings, always be vigilant for new Hidden Mickeys!
