Hidden Mickeys in Disney Springs and at Epcot Future World

Let's study some possible Hidden Mickey images. On the Fantasy Fare Food Truck at Disney Springs West Side, does the group of swirls above the word "Culinary" or the repeated red design on the yellow stripe resemble a classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Nick Skiles).

This new image recently appeared in the walkway between Lefty's "The Left Hand Store" and Disney's Pin Traders store in Disney Springs Marketplace. Is it Hidden or Decorative? (Thanks to John Bruederle, and Orlando Attractions Magazine).

This image inside Tren-D store seems legitimate to me. It's a yellow side profile of Mickey Mouse at the top (maybe the clasp?) of Minnie's handbag. Minnie is painted on a "Cast Members Only" door at the rear of the store. Let's hope it sticks around a while! (Thanks to Martha Tischler).

Glass window paintings are behind a check-out counter in the Princess Room of the World of Disney store. In the leftmost set of windows, look for two groups of flowers, one orange and one red. Does either group form a classic Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Martha Tischler).

In Epcot's Innoventions East, stop by Spinning Spectrums, which is on a wall inside Colortopia. Several of the wall designs that spin seem to have yellow and orange classic Mickeys. What do you think? (Thanks to Larry Brooks).

Habit Heroes - Bad Habits (and a Hidden Mickey)

Vickie and I visited Epcot's Innoventions to experience "Habit Heroes." We were admitted into "Will Power's Gymnasium" to learn more about our bad health habits.

On top of some lockers in the pre-show room, I spotted this image: a Hidden Mickey made of sports balls!

Will Powers and Callie Stenics led our group through three interactive sessions. We passed by Callie's office on the way to the first room.

Along the trek to better health, I destroyed a pizza by blasting it with carrots and broccoli.

We witnessed a young boy learn to cast off his bad health habits, to protect himself as much as possible against high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

After we left our own bad habits behind, we waved goodbye to Callie and Will.

WDW with Neighbors

Recently, I met up with neighbors and friends for dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse in the Yacht Club Resort.

Bob and Rita Ondercik are long-time Disney fans and have been DVC members since the beginning of DVC (when awesome benefits were added for joining). Bob and Rita also volunteer at Give Kids The World, a resort near WDW that is a retreat for children with medical problems.

Paul and Gretchen Gregg are Disney fans, though not as rabid as the Onderciks and me. (However, I think we've stimulated their interest!). Of course, we all had to pay tribute to Minnie Moo. Rita and Bob are on the left side of the photo, and Paul and Gretchen are on the right.

I like the Yachtsman Steakhouse; I usually order fish or chicken, and my wife Vickie assures me that the steak is decent and worth a trip for dinner.

Before the meal, Vickie and I explored the Yacht Club for Hidden Mickeys. We found a cool one made of coiled rope in a display window of the Fittings & Fairings shop; it's in the closest display window to the main lobby. Display window Hidden Mickeys at WDW tend to come and go, as the displays change from time to time.

The next day, I joined Bob and Rita at Epcot. We flew on Soarin' several times, and I snapped a somewhat decent photo of the classic Mickey made of rocks in the snow. It's at the top center of the photo, which is a difficult photo to get right! This Mickey image is more convincing when you first spot it, as you're soaring up to it. (Thanks to Jen T, Beci Mahnken, and Annette Owens for first alerting me to this classic Mickey).

Rita found a Hidden Mickey in the House of Innoventions (the House of Tomorrow) inside Innoventions East, on the rear wall of the bedroom. It's an upside-down Mickey made of ad buttons. You have to queue up and wait for a tour of this futuristic house, but it's worth a short wait, especially to find Rita's classic Mickey!

Before we called it a day, I snapped a photo of Bob and Rita in front of the upside-down waterfall at the Imagination Pavilion. A day at WDW can be quite refreshing!
