Hidden Mickeys at Tom Sawyer Island, Magic Kingdom

Tom Sawyer Island is a huge playground for kids (and adults like me). Not surprisingly, Disney placed some cool Hidden Images here. Let's start at the very back of the island, at Fort Langhorn. What do you think of this image? It's hanging on the left side of the outside wall of the Blacksmith's shop inside the fort. At the far left of the wall, markings on the side of this lower piece of horse bridle gear might form an upside-down classic Hidden Mickey. (Thanks to Jason Gall).

This next Hidden Mickey has been in place for a few years. It's on a handrail along stairs to one of the Rifle Roosts. Climb the stairs to your immediate right after you enter the fort and walk across the right upper walkway to the far right Rifle Roost. On top of the right handrail, about halfway up the steps to the top of the Rifle Roost, there is a Hidden Mickey created by: a wood knot, an additional mark, and an indentation in the wood. In the photo, the Hidden Mickey is sideways to the right.

In Old Scratch's Mystery Mine,

look for this image of Goofy on the wall. Halfway through the mine, bright shining gems embedded in the wall form a side profile of Goofy. He's looking to your right.

On the raft back to the mainland, don't miss this Hidden Mickey in the rocks. Across the river from the Tom Sawyer Island docks, look at the right end of the bridge in Frontierland for three rocks that form a classic Mickey. They're located halfway between the last two vertical posts that support the handrail, about one foot down from the top of the rocks. The Hidden Mickey is in the second row of rocks from the top. (It's also visible from the Liberty Square Riverboat.)

Whenever I'm in Frontierland, I like to check out the Hidden Tinker Bell. Walk across from the entrance to the Tom Sawyer Island rafts to an exit from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - the exit closest to the Standby line entrance. A cutout in the reddish rock along this exit walkway resembles a side profile of Tinker Bell. She's behind the fence and between two metal carts, and she faces to your left.

Enjoy the search!

Questionable Hidden Mickeys at Disney's Hollywood Studios

I visited the Studios to search for the following images. Let me know what you think!

Our first stop is Sid Cahuenga's Antiques and Curios, which is now a MyMagic+ service center. In the rooms at the right side of the shop, you can find remnants of the original shop, like these cameras on an upper shelf along the right wall of the room at the rear. Is there a classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickey on the front of the cameras? (Thanks to Larry Brooks).

Here's another image in Sid Cahuenga's. It's on the top right shelf of a cabinet with glass doors at the rear wall of the last room to the right. Is Mickey on the Ferris wheel a hidden image?

In the pre-show room of MuppetVision 3D, look for these faux vegetables or fruit in a crate at the left side of the wall to the far left (as you face the doors to the theater). Do the swirls in the green vine inside the crate and to the right form a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

A few feet to the right in another crate along this same wall in the pre-show room is this collection of gauges at the right edge of the crate. Do they make a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

Perk your ears for this Hidden Surprise in the final scene of MuppetVision 3D. Concentrate amidst the loud music and noise, right after the band member has a tuba stuck over his head, and you'll pick up the famous refrain: "It's a small world after all, It's a small ..." Sorry, I know you'll be humming the song for the rest of your day! (Thanks to Jacob DePriest).

Enjoy the search!
