Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom Resorts

Folks informed me of some Hidden Mickeys that I hadn't come across yet, like this one at the Wilderness Lodge Villas. I'd looked for this one before, to no avail. Sometimes, it's quite difficult to describe the location of an image so others can find it. But recently, I spotted this great image! To locate it, turn left toward the elevators after you enter the Villas main entrance. On the rock pillar to your right as you walk toward the elevators, an almost upside-down classic Hidden Mickey is etched in a square, dark gray rock. Find it about 2 1/2 feet up, on the second rock from the floor. (Thanks to The Adornettos).

Inside the main lobby of the Grand Floridian Resort, a classic Hidden Mickey bush is on wall maps of the Resort. Locate these maps on the first and second floors, toward the front of the building. A small sideways classic Mickey is formed by bushes at the upper right of the Sago Cay building at the left middle of the map. (Thanks to Alena White).

A few years ago, we lost some Hidden Mickeys inside Gasparilla Island Grill at the Grand Floridian. But don't despair! Now you can look up to admire classic Mickeys in the metalwork above the individual lights on the ceiling light fixtures. (Thanks to Charles Tyner).

Disney doesn't overlook the lowly trashcan! At the Fort Wilderness Resort, a small classic Hidden Mickey, tilted to the right, is at the lower middle of the logo on the trashcans. It's under the "C" in "Campground." (Thanks to Justin Lewicki).

While you're at Fort Wilderness, step inside the registration building ("Reception Outpost") at the far side of the main parking lot and say hello to Mickey. A plush Mickey Mouse stands in a metal jug at the far left of a shelf directly over the registration counter. (Thanks to Scott Abney).

Happy Hunting!

Hidden Mickeys at DisneyQuest

DisneyQuest at Disney Springs West Side is still going strong! The interactive games are fun and challenging, and Hidden Mickeys there have endured. Check out some of these interesting DisneyQuest Hidden Mickeys.

On the fourth floor, the classic Mickey-shaped DisneyQuest logo is on the playing surface and on the sides of the air hockey tables. In addition, small yellow classic Mickey-shaped information stickers are on the front of some games on various floors, including the air hockey tables.

Classic Mickey-shaped holes are in the sides of some of the wooden stools on the floor that children can stand on to play games. Find them on the second floor and other floors. Classic Hidden Mickeys are also formed by some of the circles in the brown carpet near the Living Easels on the second floor. You can see both of these images in the photo.

During "Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride," the golden beetle you encounter bears classic Mickey markings on its back. (It's not a perfect three-circle Hidden Mickey, but it looks convincing from a distance). You don't have to take the ride; you can watch the overhead video screens as others ride. The beetle is on the right side of the photo.

Again, for the following two Hidden Mickeys at the "Virtual Jungle Cruise," you needn't take the ride; you can stand behind one of the ride pods and watch. Classic Mickey-shaped balloons periodically float up from the left side of the screen, in front of the castle, before the ride starts. (In the photo, you can see a balloon inside the palm tree on the left, above the tops of the trees in the background).

On the screen in the first part of the "Virtual Jungle Cruise" ride, the raft may exit a glacier area under a distorted classic Mickey-shaped ice bridge over the river. The riders have optional routes, so they may not encounter the glacier area. (The ears on this Hidden Mickey aren't perfectly formed, but you'll recognize them.)

Let the games begin!
