Hidden Mickeys at DisneyQuest

DisneyQuest at Disney Springs West Side is still going strong! The interactive games are fun and challenging, and Hidden Mickeys there have endured. Check out some of these interesting DisneyQuest Hidden Mickeys.

On the fourth floor, the classic Mickey-shaped DisneyQuest logo is on the playing surface and on the sides of the air hockey tables. In addition, small yellow classic Mickey-shaped information stickers are on the front of some games on various floors, including the air hockey tables.

Classic Mickey-shaped holes are in the sides of some of the wooden stools on the floor that children can stand on to play games. Find them on the second floor and other floors. Classic Hidden Mickeys are also formed by some of the circles in the brown carpet near the Living Easels on the second floor. You can see both of these images in the photo.

During "Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride," the golden beetle you encounter bears classic Mickey markings on its back. (It's not a perfect three-circle Hidden Mickey, but it looks convincing from a distance). You don't have to take the ride; you can watch the overhead video screens as others ride. The beetle is on the right side of the photo.

Again, for the following two Hidden Mickeys at the "Virtual Jungle Cruise," you needn't take the ride; you can stand behind one of the ride pods and watch. Classic Mickey-shaped balloons periodically float up from the left side of the screen, in front of the castle, before the ride starts. (In the photo, you can see a balloon inside the palm tree on the left, above the tops of the trees in the background).

On the screen in the first part of the "Virtual Jungle Cruise" ride, the raft may exit a glacier area under a distorted classic Mickey-shaped ice bridge over the river. The riders have optional routes, so they may not encounter the glacier area. (The ears on this Hidden Mickey aren't perfectly formed, but you'll recognize them.)

Let the games begin!

Hidden Mickeys at Downtown Disney Marketplace

I strolled through the Marketplace on a fine sunny afternoon to check on Hidden Mickeys. I stopped for a few minutes to enjoy music from a High School concert band playing at the Waterside Stage.

On a wall inside Disney's Pin Traders store, Russell from the movie 'Up' has a few classic Mickey-shaped badges on his sash. (Thanks to Alena White, and Kolding Rasmussen.)

On a large statue of Donald Duck inside Disney's Pin Traders store, the red, white and blue classic Mickey pin is still on the upper right side of Donald's green duffel bag. (Thanks to Katie Slater.)

Another classic Hidden Mickey is on the Donald statue, at the front of his suitcase. Here's a photo of his suitcase.

A red Hidden Mickey is on the inside of one of the black Mickey-shaped pins spilling out of the suitcase. (Thanks to Denise Morelli.)

As part of the renovation of Downtown Disney, Team Mickey Athletic Club has closed and will be replaced, so its Hidden Mickeys may have been Lost. We'll wait and check out the new shop.

Checking out Hidden Mickeys at Splitsville and the Magic Kingdom

I started my day at Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney West Side. I was expected to bowl at a charity event for Give Kids the World. I say "expected" because I haven't bowled seriously for many, many years, so I was a bit nervous. I didn't need to be; the event was a blast, and I even bowled a strike or two! Our lane was next to the large orange with the classic Mickey holes on the upper level wall mural near the escalator.

Mayor Clayton from Give Kids the World greeted everyone!

I toured Give Kids the World several years ago, and if you've never visited this awesome resort not far from Walt Disney World, schedule a tour during your next visit to Orlando. You'll never forget it! Over the years, many children with life-threatening illnesses and their families have been sponsored to stay and enjoy this resort along with all the other terrific attractions in central Florida.

My next stop was the Magic Kingdom, where the Princess Fairytale Hall is slated to open soon in Fantasyland. I hope a Hidden Mickey or two will be waiting for us inside!

From time to time over the years, someone writes to me that the Hidden Mickey dishes are gone at the Haunted Mansion. I had that message recently, so I had to check out the banquet table. Thankfully, the plates are back in place where they usually are, at the bottom left corner of the table! (This dish image vanishes at times, but it seems to magically reappear later!)

What do you think about this image? A cart wheel and two barrels outside of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction seem to form a classic Hidden Mickey image. To spot it, you have to walk behind the cart away from the main Adventureland path. Let me know if you give it a thumbs up or down! (Thanks to Fred Bastien, Bonnie Smith, Bob and Liz and Robert and Liam and Cailin, Len Reeves, and Martha Tischler).
