Searching for Hidden Mickeys at Animal Kingdom Lodge

One recent evening, Vickie and I drove to Walt Disney World for a dinner reservation at Jiko Restaurant. The Animal Kingdom Lodge abounds with Hidden Mickeys, so I took the opportunity to do some exploring before dinner. First, we strolled around Kidani Village. There is one appealing characteristic to me about the Animal Kingdom Lodge Hidden Mickeys: many are etched in rock or embedded in cement and are likely to last a long while! Check out this image outside the Kidani Village Resort. To find it, walk to the far end of the Samawati Spring Pool area to the lookout for the Pembe Savanna. If you smell the marshmallow roast, you're warm! Find a tree surrounded by grass and plants and locate a classic Mickey made of three gray stones embedded in the cement walkway.

Wandering around in the Pembe Savanna were several animals, including this majestic bird.

Don't worry, I won't leave you guessing!

Several compelling Hidden Mickeys are in the pool area. This classic Mickey traced in rock is at the rear of the hot tub spa. (Thanks to Keri Madeira).

Inside Jiko restaurant, a classic Mickey is formed on the ceiling above the two large orange oven exhausts and the white column behind them. (Thanks to Len Testa).

One of our favorite meals was at Jiko a year and a half ago. We were seated by the windows looking out over the little water scene outside (on the left as you entered the restaurant) and our server whispered to our daughter to look over her shoulder and see if she could spot a Hidden Mickey in the river stones. After a little searching it popped out at her. Love those moments!
