Hidden Mickeys on Disneyland's Main Street, U.S.A.

Many compelling Hidden Mickeys can be found in Disneyland, California. We also come across a few questionable images at times. Let's begin our search on Main Street, U.S.A.

A subtle classic Mickey shadow hides in the Disney Gallery, which is right next to the "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" theater. Find the image in a drawing of a Euro Disneyland Railroad car on a wall to the far right as you enter the gallery from Main Street. The railroad car has a "Coney Island" label on its side. In the fifth window from the left, the shadow of a person's head resembles Mickey. (Thanks to Mari H.)

The Mad Hatter store is on the corner to the left of the Disney Gallery. A few second-story windows to the right of the Mad Hatter store sign is a window commemorating Disney Legend Blaine Gibson, an animator and sculptor. (One of his creations is the "Partners" bronze statue of Walt and Mickey.) Classic Mickey ears form the right side of a soap carving that is painted in the window. (Thanks to Jason Gall).

What do you think about the following images? Circles in wallpaper in the Chester Drawer's children's store, next to Disney Clothiers, might approximate a classic Mickey. Circles behind the "C" in the wallpaper seem closer to a Mickey image than those behind other letters. (Thanks to Josh Burch).

A chandelier in an embroidery shop, near the Disney Showcase store, has small projections that might resemble Mickey. Is it close enough? (Thanks to Justine Mikhail and Mark Treiger).

You can still find the Pinocchio game machine with its classic Mickey in the Penny Arcade. It's been sitting at the rear of the Arcade for a while now. The small Mickey sits between the play buttons on the machine.

Enjoy the search!

Hidden Mickeys in Disney California Adventure

Let's examine a few images from California. "Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!" replaced "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" in the Hollywood Tower Hotel structure in Hollywood Land. This first image is high on an outside wall of the refurbished building. Small silver metal plates are scattered among pipes and other metallic items on one section of the wall. One of the plates with its three roundish projections might form a right-side up classic Hidden Mickey. (Other plates with round projections are not right-side up). Find the plate in question to the right of the large gold Tivan Group logo. (Thanks to Ethan Holmes).

Inside the "Guardians of the Galaxy" attraction building, toward the far side of the second floor of the "boiler room" (before you board the ride vehicle), two images of bolts and metal circles are in the middle of a large pulley and chain device hanging from the ceiling. The images are below the device's large hook. Are they Hidden Mickeys? (Thanks to Ethan Holmes).

At "Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters" in Cars Land, silver tire rims are displayed in three rows on a wall at the rear of the ride arena. (This tire rim display survived the re-imagining of this attraction). One rim, at the center of the bottom row, has three holes exposed (without bolts) in the middle of the rim that might form a classic Hidden Mickey tilted downward to the left. (Thanks to Steve Orme).

I've been debating about this image for a while. Find these three tires resting on the left side of the roof of a rickety garage at the rear of "Mater's Junkyard Jamboree" in Cars Land. What do you think - a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to LMD Hidden Mickey Finders, Martin Lee, and Kristen and family).

Another image has stuck around after the closing of "MuppetVision 3D" in Hollywood Land. Look high to the outside of a tower at the right rear of the seating area for Award Wieners to find two eyeballs sitting above a valve wheel. Is it Mickey? (Thanks to Ryan Ong).
