More Hidden Mickeys from Under the Sea in the Magic Kingdom

The Disney Imagineers unleashed their creative forces when they designed and built the New Fantasyland in WDW's Magic Kingdom. For example, we continue to discover new Hidden Mickey images in Ariel's Under the Sea attraction! The ornate rock formations lend themselves to Hidden Mickeys galore, so it's likely that even more Hidden Mickeys await discovery!


Along the right side of the outside queue, look to the rear right of the small lagoon to spot this interesting image in the rock wall. It's behind the rock (with the Hidden Mickey impressions that we know about) jutting out of the middle of the lagoon. There may be two classic Hidden Mickeys in the wall, one upright and another sideways image just above the first one.


After you've spotted these images at the lagoon, look to the right and high up on the rock hill to locate this beautifully proportioned classic Hidden Mickey impression in the rock surface. It's above left of a crevice and near the top of the rock wall and to the right of the edge of the large opening into the cavern inside queue. It's just left of the center of the photo below. (Thanks to Mark Fowle.)


It took me a while to spot this gem of a Hidden Mickey. Walk further along the outside queue and stare up to your right to find an arch of rock. On the right side of a small waterfall, a tiny classic Mickey impression in the rock is in the upper middle of the arch. (Thanks to Ashley Fayett).


Great job by the Disney Imagineers and architects!

Holiday Hidden Images at Disney's Hollywood Studios

You probably know about the seasonal Hidden Mickeys scattered throughout the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights along the Streets of America each Holiday season. Disney usually adds a few new Hidden Mickeys every year, and, thankfully, many of our favorite ones return. On San Francisco Street, the Dalmatian with the classic Mickey spot on its right hip is back this year. (Thanks to Sarah Del Grande).

I look forward to my annual search for the Hidden Cat. This year, it's up a tree! Look for it next to the City Hall building near the entrance to Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show.

In recent years, Disney also hides a red razorback hog (in honor of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks in Jennings Osborne's home state) somewhere along the Osborne Lights. I found it in front of City Hall, not far from the Hidden Cat.

Close to Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, I stopped and said hello to Lightning McQueen and Mater at their Meet and Greet area. Most of the time, Mater has a wing nut that resembles Mickey ears on his engine air cleaner. As I'd hoped, it was there. (Thanks to Brian).

Speaking of Mama Melrose's, Vickie and I had a fabulous dinner there before admiring the Osborne Lights. My Minestrone Soup and Chicken Cacciatore were outstanding! Just before dinner, right outside Pizza Planet, I spotted Santa about to deliver goodies to someone on an upper floor.

Each Holiday Season, it's great fun to look for Hidden Images in the fabulous Osborne Lights!
