Hidden Mickeys at the Polynesian Village Resort and the Magic Kingdom

Folks find images on Disney property that may or may not be Hidden Mickeys. What do you think about the following images?

On the upper and lower levels of the Polynesian Village Resort's main lobby, multiple circles are on top of some of the side tables. Each tabletop's design differs. Do you see any classic Hidden Mickeys in the circles? (Thanks to Elaine Smith).


Outside the window behind the seating area of Kona Cafe, three nails are grouped in a vertical wooden beam. A Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Benjamin K.).

On Main Street, U.S.A., small circles are scattered in the design of The Plaza Restaurant's outside signs. Any Hidden Mickeys in here? (Thanks to Scott Trask).

At the rear of the gift shop at the exit of Pirates of the Caribbean, a wall parchment of a Pirates map has various black symbols. Is one of them a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Caleb Pryor).

Keep searching!

Main Street Magic Kingdom Hidden Mickeys

Now and then, I'm enlightened about an awesome new Hidden Mickey. At least, new to me.

Kelly McAdams wrote to me about a classic Mickey image in Tony's Town Square Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. I'll admit, I get really excited when folks direct me to any new Hidden Mickey images. However, some images are more intriguing than others.

This one in Tony's is spectacular! It's a tiny imprint on a black tile on the floor in front of the bureau to the immediate right as you enter the restaurant. Look to the lower right corner of the tile as you face the bureau. I have no idea how long this Hidden Mickey has been there; it may have been placed recently. It's a perfect classic Mickey, and it's likely to remain for a long time.

A cast member in Tony's told me that the roses in the rear left of the restaurant formed a Hidden Mickey. The photo shows that the roses are all about the same size. As you know, I have trouble accepting three same-size circles as classic Mickeys. Mickey's head is larger than his ears! However, I understand the CM's dilemma: how can you tell an excited child that a three-circle image is not a Hidden Mickey?

Christina Santoro wrote me about an image in the Crystal Arts Shop on Main Street. It's in the upper section of the left rear wall of the store. It's a "positional" Mickey, in that you must stand right below it to spot the classic Mickey relationship.

I've been told that the CM's in the shop made this arrangement of articles on purpose to form a Hidden Mickey image. I'm normally not fond of positional images, but I'll put these photos on my website soon, in the Questionable section, to let the voters decide. Let me know what you think.

I tend to wait a while to see if missing Hidden Mickeys reappear.

Alas, I think that the classic Mickey on the rose stem in the display window of the Uptown Jewelers Store is gone for good. Display window Hidden Mickeys are especially vulnerable, as displays are constantly changing. Find this image in the Lost section of my website.
