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).

Questionable Hidden Mickeys in the Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, and the Wilderness Lodge

I'm debating on a few Hidden Images around Walt Disney World. What do you think about the ones below? Let's start in Fantasyland. This first image is in the women's restroom in the Tangled area. Three purple spots are at the lower right corner of a mural painted on the left wall as you enter the restroom. (You can actually spot this wall from outside the restroom, but I recommend that guys not stand and stare!) (Thanks to Lauren Schell, Lindsey Stephens, Jordyn Freiermuth, Martha Tischler, and Kelsey Knee).

Inside Pinocchio Village Haus Restaurant, look for a design with a circle and two arcs that might form a classic Hidden Mickey. This design is repeated around the middle of a pillar at the rear of the last seating room to the right, near the exit to the restrooms. (Thanks to Justin Lewicki).

In Storybook Circus, stroll to the exit of the WDW Railroad Train Station and locate a pile of tubs, trash cans, and luggage. The lower of two silver trash cans sitting upright has some suspicious indentations near the top of the can? (Thanks to Ryan Bachman).

Over in Frontierland, depressions in the rock wall to the right of the entrance to the Briar Patch store might look like a classic Mickey. This image is difficult to photograph. (It's in the middle of the photo). (Thanks to Ryan Bachman).

Visit Morimoto Asia Restaurant in Disney Springs and scan the walls for this image. As you enter the restaurant, study the walls to your left. Three dark circles are painted high on a wall behind the right side of the drink bar. (Thanks to Linda Eckwerth).

Our final stop is the Wilderness Lodge Resort. A tall totem pole stands at the front middle of the long reservations counter on the right side of the main lobby. Under the beak of the bird at the top of the pole are black semicircles. Do they form an upside-down Mickey? (Thanks to Lizzie Cochran).

Hidden Mickeys at Tom Sawyer Island, Magic Kingdom

Tom Sawyer Island is a huge playground for kids (and adults like me). Not surprisingly, Disney placed some cool Hidden Images here. Let's start at the very back of the island, at Fort Langhorn. What do you think of this image? It's hanging on the left side of the outside wall of the Blacksmith's shop inside the fort. At the far left of the wall, markings on the side of this lower piece of horse bridle gear might form an upside-down classic Hidden Mickey. (Thanks to Jason Gall).

This next Hidden Mickey has been in place for a few years. It's on a handrail along stairs to one of the Rifle Roosts. Climb the stairs to your immediate right after you enter the fort and walk across the right upper walkway to the far right Rifle Roost. On top of the right handrail, about halfway up the steps to the top of the Rifle Roost, there is a Hidden Mickey created by: a wood knot, an additional mark, and an indentation in the wood. In the photo, the Hidden Mickey is sideways to the right.

In Old Scratch's Mystery Mine,

look for this image of Goofy on the wall. Halfway through the mine, bright shining gems embedded in the wall form a side profile of Goofy. He's looking to your right.

On the raft back to the mainland, don't miss this Hidden Mickey in the rocks. Across the river from the Tom Sawyer Island docks, look at the right end of the bridge in Frontierland for three rocks that form a classic Mickey. They're located halfway between the last two vertical posts that support the handrail, about one foot down from the top of the rocks. The Hidden Mickey is in the second row of rocks from the top. (It's also visible from the Liberty Square Riverboat.)

Whenever I'm in Frontierland, I like to check out the Hidden Tinker Bell. Walk across from the entrance to the Tom Sawyer Island rafts to an exit from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - the exit closest to the Standby line entrance. A cutout in the reddish rock along this exit walkway resembles a side profile of Tinker Bell. She's behind the fence and between two metal carts, and she faces to your left.
