A Day at Disney's Hollywood Studios with Friends and Hidden Mickeys

I enjoyed an afternoon at Disney's Hollywood Studios with my sister Donna (on the right in the photo) and two friends from Texas, Laurie and her daughter Becky.

On The Great Movie Ride, the two Pocahontas bulletins are still there in the Western scene, one bulletin on a wall behind the barber pole to the right of the vehicle.

and the second just past John Wayne to the left on a wood fence.

I've been debating about this image for a while. It's the small concentration of light on the screen in front of the airplane headlight in the Casablanca scene along The Great Movie Ride. What do you think, is the image a Hidden Mickey?

Alas, I have another Lost Hidden Mickey to report. Outside and above the Keystone Clothiers shop, the billboard has changed and no longer shows the girl crouched over Mickey's handprints in the cement. The photo shows the new billboard.

Before dinner, we were treated to a steel drum musician in the lobby of the Dolphin Resort! He definitely brought a Caribbean flavor to the Dolphin that day. He's playing in front of the lobby chairs that have classic Mickey circles in the design of the chair backs and sides.

Summer Afternoon in the Studios

Vickie and I had lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby, Disney's Hollywood Studios, with Anthony and Ken, who are avid fans! In fact, they've signed up for Deb's cruise next year! Anthony and I had the famous Brown Derby Cobb Salad (one of my favorite salads), Ken had a delicious grouper (I say delicious with confidence since his plate was the first bare plate at our table), and Vickie enjoyed a salad and crab cakes. From left to right in the photo are Anthony, Ken, me and Vickie.


After lunch, the wait for the Great Movie Ride was only 5 minutes, so we hopped on board. I showed Ken and Anthony the great shadow Hidden Minnie image on the loading dock mural. Look above the roof in the photo. Minnie is just above the short tree stump and she's looking to the left:

I pointed out to our group the advertisements that reference Pocahontas in the Western scene. One sign is to the right of your vehicle on a wall behind a barber pole:
and another is to your left on a fence just past John Wayne.

In front of the entrance to the Great Movie Ride, Anthony, Ken and I posed over the imprint of Carol Burnett's Mickey ears:

I checked out the afternoon Pixar Pals parade (I'm a real fan of the Disney-Pixar movies!). Mike Wazowski from "Monsters, Inc." waved at me:

Carl Fredricksen from "Up" floated by me in front of his balloons:

This summer day in Florida was hot, but who cares? We're at Disney World!
