Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom

Look for this big spoon standing upright just before you meet Tinker Bell at her Meet 'n' Greet in Town Square Theater on Main Street, U.S.A. Do the three round flowers on the handle form an upside-down classic Hidden Mickey?

Folks continue to wonder about this image in the second scene of Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress. In the right half of the rectangular painting on the rear wall of the kitchen, three flowers or fruits might form a classic Hidden Mickey. Is it close enough? (Thanks to Brian A. Leong).

Near the end of the South Pacific room on "it's a small world," several koala bears hang on a tree to the left of your boat. I've liked the back of the blue bear's head and ears as a classic Hidden Mickey.

The back of the brown koala bear's head and ears might be just as convincing. What do you think?

Near the end of "it's a small world," a dancing boy holds a doll in his right hand. Is the doll a character that you recognize? (Pinocchio usually wears red shorts, a yellow shirt, and a yellow hat). (Thanks to Nick Rosa).

Enjoy Hidden Mickeys!

Hidden Mickeys in Disney Springs

I'm wondering about a few questionable Hidden Mickey images at Disney Springs. First, let's drop in for sweets at Disney's Candy Cauldron at Disney Springs West Side. I've struggled with the following image for a while. Study the left and front sides of the top of a pillar at the center of the rear wall of the store. You have to stand right in front of the cash register to get the proper angle to spot it. Is that Mickey's face on the left side (looking left) with one ear on the front side of the pillar? (Thanks to Gwen Orilio).

Now, it's on to Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop in Disney Springs Marketplace for more sweets! This image is near the upper corners of the huge mural on an outside wall at the right side of the store and on the inside left rear wall. Do the small, brown circles on the pillar simulate a sideways classic Mickey tilted down to the left? (Thanks to Riley Swanson).

I need to mention that the side-profile Mickey silhouette in the streetcar (in the second window from the left) is on both Ghirardelli murals. This photo is from the outside mural of the store.

In the high-ceilinged central room of the World of Disney store, check out this group of lily pads at the lower right side of a stained-glass painting on the rear wall. Look behind the long check-out counter. Is it a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Jeremiah Good).

What about this image of light green circles in the carpet of several rooms in the World of Disney store; is it close enough? (Thanks to Nick Skiles).

Happy Hunting!
