A 2nd Day at California Adventure, Hidden Mickeys

Vickie and I enjoyed a plentiful breakfast at Ariel’s Grotto Restaurant and said hello to a gaggle of Disney Princesses, including my favorite princess – Minnie Mouse!

I confirmed that a classic Hidden Mickey was still in place on a display painting near the wall opposite the bottom of the stairs that lead down inside to the restaurant level. It’s still there; it’s made of white bubbles just to the left of a long green stem at the lower left of the sign that says “Ariel’s Grotto Disney Princess Celebration.”

After our food settled, we checked out Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land. A classic Mickey made of three barrel cacti are on the ground along the right side of the standby entrance queue, just past a pole with a sign that says “Long Trip? One Sip and Watch Those Miles Melt Away.” (Thanks to George Rojas, Rosemary & Neil [FindingMickey.com], and Peter Brown).

Then we hopped on to Luigi’s Flying Tires. Here I am floating along after playing “bumper tires” for a while.

It was a hot summer afternoon, but who’s complaining? I’m at Disney, and Hidden Mickeys are waiting for us to find them!
