Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom

We will likely never stop finding Mickey images in the lush and intricate and ever-changing Disney detail that surrounds us. That's fine with me, as it means that Disney is keeping the Hidden Mickey game alive for all of us!

How about these images? Are they Hidden Mickeys? This first one is from Adventureland. Three circles are part of a charm embedded in the floor near a door at the rear of the Agrabah Bazaar shop. A sign that says "Elephant Tales" is above the door. (Thanks to Jason Gall).

Another image is in the rocks (one large rock for the "head" and two small rocks for the "ears") embedded in a short wall to the left of the entrance to the Big Top Souvenirs shop in Storybook Circus. It's in the middle of the photo, just below the top cement sitting surface. (Thanks to Jason Gall).

Over inside Sir Mickey's store, the face opening in a knight's helmet sitting high on a shelf has a suspicious design. A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Jennifer Hess, and Robert Wescovich).

This next image is a bona fide Hidden Mickey. If you ride the ferryboat to or from the Magic Kingdom, remember to look for the coiled rope Mickey! Cast Members usually maintain this image along one or both loading dock walkways at the Magic Kingdom and the Transportation and Ticket Center. Look next to a large post on either side as you walk onto or leave the boat at either loading dock.

I often check on my family brick to the right of the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. It's fading over the years!

Keep searching!

Questionable Hidden Mickeys at the World of Disney store and at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Take a look at the following images from around Walt Disney World. I had a few Hidden Mickey hunters with me to help me in the search (refer to the last photo)!

Walk to the Women's Apparel room at the right rear of the World of Disney store and glance up at the ceiling. Find the moon surrounded by clouds, which resemble Mickey's "ears" and "nose" and may form a side profile view of Mickey. What do you think? (Thanks to James King).

Over at Disney's Hollywood Studios, hop on The Great Movie Ride and glance up to the left of your vehicle in the Tarzan room, where Jane sits on an elephant. Does the round fruit at the left side of Jane's basket make a convincing Hidden Mickey?

How about the fruit in the right side of Jane's basket? (Thanks to Gracie Hall).

My son spotted this image along the right wall as we strolled through Walt Disney: One Man's Dream. It's on the front of a bureau at the left side of a painting of the inside of a Barber Shop. The painting is to the right of a dancing Buddy Ebsen. Is it a side profile of Mickey Mouse?

Will we ever see the black cat from the Osborne Lights again? This photo is from December, 2015.

Admire a couple of intrepid Hidden Mickey hunters at the Studios: my son Steven and Gracen, who is fresh from a face painting (Rapunzel). She's nine years old, and this was her first visit to Walt Disney World! She learned pin trading in about five seconds, and I'll never forget the first Hidden Mickey I showed her - the classic Mickey in the vines on a merchandise cabinet in Epcot's Karamell-Kuche shop in Germany.

Happy Hunting!
