Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom Resorts

As you know, some images seem more convincing than others as Hidden Mickeys. I like to get opinions on the ones that are questionable. In Magic Kingdom's Adventureland, I've walked over the following image many times without spotting it. Evidently, some Cast Members consider this group of circles one of the larger Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom. It's a large circle surrounded by four "ears" in the tile pattern on the ground at the transition from Adventureland to Frontierland, near Pirates of the Caribbean. Is it close enough to be a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to jadekitty).

Objects hang from the ceiling in a small display room near the restrooms and to the right of the gift shop at the exit from Pirates of the Caribbean. A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Terry Foreacre).

In the Boys' Bedroom up high in the Swiss Family Treehouse, does this plate with cups above it form a Hidden Mickey?

At the Grand Floridian Resort, on a wall outside the entrance to 1900 Park Fare Restaurant, circles in the center of the framed design might suggest a Hidden Mickey. What do you think? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

On the fourth floor of the Contemporary Resort, look for this painting of a Centaurette (from the movie Fantasia) on an outside wall of the store in the middle of the lobby. A group of red and yellow flowers on the ground under the middle of the Centaurette suggest a classic Hidden Mickey, or does it? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

How about the ears and head of one or more of these skunks on the grand mural in the lobby of the Contemporary Resort? Do you see Mickey? You can see these skunks from the fourth floor, on the wall facing the Contempo Cafe. (Thanks to Deonna Hores).

Have fun searching for Hidden Mickeys!

Hidden Mickeys in Disney's Animal Kingdom

I'm constantly amazed at the new Hidden Mickeys (new for me, at least!) that folks tell me about. Like this one in DinoLand U.S.A. - walk to the rear entrance of Chester & Hester's Dinosaur Treasures shop to find this classic Hidden Mickey, made of dark spots at the lower left of the left side of a "Cold Drinks" dispenser. It's just above the lower red horizontal band. I hope it lasts! (Thanks to Alicia Dakins).

Here's a cool Hidden Mickey image in The Boneyard. Upstairs to the rear left in a fenced-off archeology display, a small full-body Mickey figurine sits on the horizontal bar of a red bicycle. Various plastic dinosaurs perch on other parts of the bicycle. (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

Some Hidden Mickeys are changed over time due to weather or other external effects. This upside-down classic Mickey image seems to been distorted over the years. It's on the back of The Tree of Life - visible from the path between Africa and Asia. To find it, look above the eye of the hippopotamus. What do you think?

As you're exiting the park, stop by the restrooms to your right before the turnstiles. What about these rocks in the wall in front of the restrooms? A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to DisneyR&N).

Enjoy the hunt!
