Questionable Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom

Groups of circles abound on Disney property. But which circle threesomes can count as decent Hidden Mickeys? Some are convincing and some not. What do you think about the following images?

Three cannonballs along the left entrance queue of Pirates of the Caribbean might form a classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickey. Look for them between barrels in an "Armeria" alcove to your right about halfway through the queue. (Thanks to John and Samantha and Brian Jonckheere, and Charles Tyner).

At Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station, check out the monkey on top of the Clowns boxcar with green plants on its head. Three circles at the left lower part of the plants might simulate an upside-down classic Hidden Mickey. Is it close? (Thanks to Octavio Perez).

In Mickey's Star Traders shop, a classic Mickey made of three clear domes is over an entrance door in the mural that encircles the upper wall. A red tower is in the dome that forms the "head" of Mickey. To the left of the upper third of the red tower, three circles (the "ears" are incomplete) might make Mickey. (Thanks to Martha Tischler).

Study the last video monitor to your upper left on the moving walkway at the exit of Space Mountain. Three craters on the surface of Mars below the word "Play" in the phrase "Where Serious Golfers Go to Play!" kind of look like Mickey. (Thanks to Bill and Kari Middeke).

Have a great time looking for Hidden Mickeys!

Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland and Splash Mountain

I've been wondering about a few images that folks have let me know about. This first image is on the steampunk dragon (Maleficent) in the Festival of Fantasy parade. Find it on the plate just below the right shoulder joint. Three faint circles in the metal might form a classic Mickey. What do you think? (Thanks to Andy Webb).

As you know, lots of potential Hidden Mickeys are scattered through the newer areas of Fantasyland. Here's a collection of circle depressions in a rock wall that comes close to forming a classic Mickey, maybe? As you approach Be Our Guest Restaurant, look over the left side of the bridge at a wall of the restaurant. The image is at the lower left of a block in the fourth row of blocks from the top of the wall and not far to the left of the pillar at the end of the bridge. (Thanks to Anthony Flynn).

Walk to the restrooms located near Fairytale Garden. In the wall between the restrooms is a green "Fire Hose" door. Indentations are hammered into the horizontal black metal strips that cross the doors. Three indentations near the middle of the bottom right strip might resemble a classic Mickey, tilted to the left? (Thanks to Suzanne Perez).

On the ceiling about halfway along the entrance queue for Splash Mountain, and near a wall picture of Brer Fox, you'll walk under this image made of the ceiling mount for a lantern and two nearby rocks. Is it close enough? (Thanks to Terry Berringer).

Keep up the search!
