Hidden Mickeys in Disney's Animal Kingdom
We continue to be intrigued by circular images on Disney property, like the ones below. Are some of these images purposeful - planned and placed by the Imagineers? I'd like to know what you think.
In the Riverside Depot store on Discovery Island at Disney's Animal Kingdom, a mural on the wall behind the cashier's desk has these green swirls. The mural is near the first entrance door you come to on the main walkway from the Oasis. Do you see a classic Hidden Mickey in the swirls? (Thanks to Tanya Brooks).
A plaster relief on the stone wall inside the seating area behind Tamu Tamu Refreshments sort of resembles Mickey, or does it? It's on the wall nearest the path from Asia and is above and to the right of the Baloo image we know and love. (Thanks to The Hade Family).
Over in DinoLand U.S.A., the cement crack Hidden Mickey in the parking space across from TriceraTop Spin is well-known. Here is another set of cracks in the cement close to Chester & Hester's Dinosaur Treasures shop. Is it close enough to be included in the Hidden Mickey catalog? (Thanks to Matthew and Emma Turrisi).
The Cretaceous Trail starts not far from Chester & Hester's. About halfway along the trail is this group of animal footprints embedded in the cement. Can you appreciate a Hidden Mickey here? (Thanks to April Beisser).
On hot days (that would be most days in Florida), Disney is encouraging guests to drink water frequently, and (free!) water dispensers are showing up in the parks and resorts. Here's one I saw in the lower lobby of the Contemporary Resort. As you can see, there's often a citrusy Hidden Mickey in the dispenser!
