Searching for Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom

As I wandered the Magic Kingdom one afternoon to find some Hidden Mickeys, I stopped first to admire the awesome dragon (Maleficent) in the Disney Festival of Fantasy parade.

In the Briar Patch Shop near Splash Mountain, logs are piled in front of a fireplace that greets you as you enter the shop. On the left side of the logs, do log ends at the left of the pile form a classic (three-circle) upright Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Matthew Skazick).

Study this image on a wall outside Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, along the walkway from Frontierland to Adventureland. Is there a side profile of Winnie the Pooh looking to the left in the light brown stucco, along the left side of the roundish bit of stucco jutting up in the middle of the brick wall? (Thanks to Alena White.)

Speaking of Adventureland, what about these large holes in the rock border in the smoking area near Swiss Family Treehouse and across from Aloha Isle Dole Whip stand. This image is at the rear of the farthest rock-seat island away from the Treehouse. (Thanks to Sharon Dale).

Let me know what you think. I never tire of searching for Hidden Mickeys!

Hidden Mickeys at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and the Beach Club

I enjoy summer for many reasons, not the least of which is that summer is a season when many folks visit Florida! I generally meet up with family and friends at different times during the summer months, and recently I cruised around Walt Disney World with some fellow Disney fans.

At Hollywood Studios. we checked out the theater show in the Magic of Disney Animation Building with scenes from "Frozen" mixed in with the comedic performance of Mushu (from the movie "Mulan"). I finally snapped a fairly decent photo of the Mickey coffee mug in the video. It's at the top middle of the photo below.

Mickey's face is peeking out from near the front corner of a high shelf at the far right side of the theater stage.

My sister Donna (on the left in the photo) stands with her friend Trish over Mickey Mouse traced in Ward Kimball's cement square outside the theater. It was Trish's first visit to Walt Disney World; how fun is that!

Over at Disney's Animal Kingdom, Cast Members usually maintain a classic (three-circle) Mickey shape in the fur of one of the animals in the Affection Section petting zoo area of Rafiki's Planet Watch. Here's the lucky animal on that day!

Check out this cool image that Joe and Diane Franceschino spotted! It's Mickey's face drawn in the sand in a large painting hanging in the Breezeway of the Beach Club Villas. You can see Mickey's ears (two people are standing above his right ear) and his smiling mouth (another two folks stand in the middle of the photo at the right corner of his mouth). Mickey's eyes and nose seem a bit distorted.

Happy Hunting! You never know what you'll find at Disney!

An Afternoon at Disney's Animal Kingdom with Hidden Mickeys

I'm debating a few Questionable Hidden Mickey images at Disney's Animal Kingdom, so I'd like to ask for some opinions. Like these two in DinoLand, U.S.A. at the photo posing spot at the rear of the Fossil Fun Games area. They're both in the smoke or clouds of the drawings on the poster boards; one three-circle image is on the front poster behind and below the rear red fin of the car. (Thanks to Sharon Dale).

and the second is in front of the left rear knee of the green dinosaur on the rear poster. What do you think? (Thanks to Rich, Diane, Andrew and James Stangle).

How about this image in the Aviary section of the Maharajah Jungle Trek? It's in the swirls and circles of the carved relief design on a stone pillar along the walking trail. (Thanks to Sharon Dale).

And finally, this three-circle image in the clouds, on the right wall rear corner, as you face the food order counters inside Pizzafari Restaurant. Look in the middle of the photo below. (Thanks to the Bodmann Family).

Of course, I like to check on old favorite Hidden Mickeys, like this one with an orange "head" and green leaves for "ears" on a rear wall of the Elds Deer Exhibit of the Maharajah Jungle Trek.

I love the music at Disney! The Burudika Band performs several times daily in Harambe Village in Africa. Before you know it, you'll be dancing to the beat of their engaging songs!

Happy Hunting!
