Hidden Mickeys at Kidani Village and Disney Springs

Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village has some awesome Hidden Mickeys . . . and some questionable images. I'd like your opinion on a few images I'm wondering about.

Walk down the rear stairs from the main lobby toward Sanaa Restaurant and study the back surface of the rock wall that supports the stairs you just came down. Near the far right edge (as you face the wall) are these faint impressions in the rock wall. A sideways Hidden Mickey tilted right? (Thanks to Donald Torr).

Go out the rear door behind you and outside toward the fire pit. Look for a rust-colored series of big rocks to the right of the walkway before you reach the fire pit. Do you see any classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickeys impressed in the rock? (Thanks to Leah Lakatosh and Stephanie Harrison).

Outside the front entrance of the main lobby and to the right, walk to the Samawati Springs Pool area. You can usually access the area through the entrance gate. Several great Hidden Mickeys, as well as some questionable images, are scattered around this area. Here's an image impressed in the rock in the children's water play area, just to the left of the exit opening of the water slide. It's tilted to the left. What do you think? (Thanks to Keri Madeira).

These three pebbles are embedded in the short rock wall that borders one side of the children's water play area. They're near the end of the rock wall that's closer to the exit walkway. Hidden Mickey?

Recently, I had a tasty dinner of authentic Mexican food at Frontera Cocina in The Landing, Disney Springs. Various plates hang on the wall between the restrooms inside. There's got to be one or more decent classic Hidden Mickeys among the plates, don't you think? What about this one?

Hidden Mickeys can be fun!

Hidden Mickeys at Disney Springs and Epcot

New shops and restaurants at Disney Springs may bring us new Hidden Mickeys. At least, we need to stay alert for new images.

What about these bushes on the top level of the Coca-Cola store at The Landing? They're planted beside the Rooftop Beverage Bar. A classic Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Donna McMurrey).

Here's another group of bushes in the same location. Hidden Mickey?

In a previous blog, I posted a possible Hidden Mickey formed by decor wall plates inside Frontera Cocina. Here's another image from the same group of plates, which are on the wall between the restrooms. This image is at the middle left of the photo, and it's tilted to the right. What do you think?

The Hidden Mickey inside the West Side Starbucks is still present! On a wall inside the seating area, an interactive electronic screen periodically allows you to draw inside white picture frames. Classic Mickeys are in the corners of a frame at the top middle of the screen.

Over at Epcot, much of Innoventions is undergoing renovations and updates, but Colortopia is still up and running! When you spin wheels in an interactive display on a wall inside Colortopia, colors of the wheels merge into a different color specific for each wheel. Three of the wheels, one on each panel, have partial red and yellow classic Hidden Mickeys that are visible before you spin them. (Thanks to Larry Brooks, and Nick Skiles).
