Hidden Mickeys at Coral Reef Restaurant and the Outpost

One rainy weekend afternoon, Vickie and I visited Epcot for dinner in the Coral Reef Restaurant at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion. I hadn’t enjoyed the Coral Reef for a while, so I was looking forward to searching for Hidden Mickeys there. I found a great Mickey image on the lower level of the restaurant, between the first and second booths to the right of the middle aisle, facing the aquarium. This classic Mickey is made of three dark green circular tiles at the upper end of an eel-shaped image on the short wall partition behind the booths. (Thanks to Taricia, Jim Cheslin, and Cameron McGuire).

I like to check on another Hidden Mickey whenever I’m visiting the Coral Reef Restaurant. It’s made of three dark circular tiles on the upper middle front of a short wall on the right side, as you descend the middle aisle, on the second level. Face the aquarium and crouch low to spot this great image.

We were greeted by a group of divers in the aquarium, including a young boy and his father. Here’s the youngster waving at the dry diners.

After I polished off a delicious salmon entree, some of the servers proudly showed me Hidden Mickeys on their vests! You can see several dark classic Mickeys scattered around in the fabric. (Thanks to Alyson Fair).

I met up with Marc Lorenzo and Kaylene Jablecki (of the prestigious Disney Moms Panel) and her son Shawn, and we looked for Hidden Mickeys at the Outpost in World Showcase. A piece of brown luggage is perched high on a rear wall in the left room inside the Village Traders shop. The luggage tag is signed “M. Mouse,” and a red sticker on the bottom says “Mickey Mouse” and “Disney Magic.” Very cool! (Thanks to Darrel Williamson.)

Steve Barrett is a doctor and Disney nut whose favorite Walt Disney World memory is strolling through the Magic Kingdom with his young son on his shoulders. Not surprisingly, his favorite spot in the World is anywhere there's a Hidden Mickey. He suggests that all visitors take some time to chat with cast members, especially when looking for Hidden Mickeys, as they can enrich your Disney experience and make it even more magical.

  1. My husband and I took our son diving at Coral Reef at EPCOT. 9/23/14. I see that a blogger posted a photo… I would love to see more photos of my little guy. It was his reward for volunteering over 100 hours this summer and also for his hard work and follow through getting certified as a PADI SCUBA diver.

  2. Hello, we like your pictures. That diver and his dad, is my son and I. He was recently certified and was fascinated by interaction with kids through the glass into the restaurant. We would love to have a few high resolution pictures if you would be willing to share them.

    Thank you
