Holiday Hidden Images at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

You probably know about the seasonal Hidden Mickeys scattered throughout the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights along the Streets of America each Holiday season. Disney usually adds a few new Hidden Mickeys every year, and, thankfully, many of our favorite ones return. On San Francisco Street, the Dalmatian with the classic Mickey spot on its right hip is back this year. (Thanks to Sarah Del Grande).

I look forward to my annual search for the Hidden Cat. This year, it’s up a tree! Look for it next to the City Hall building near the entrance to Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show.

In recent years, Disney also hides a red razorback hog (in honor of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks in Jennings Osborne’s home state) somewhere along the Osborne Lights. I found it in front of City Hall, not far from the Hidden Cat.

Close to Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano, I stopped and said hello to Lightning McQueen and Mater at their Meet and Greet area. Most of the time, Mater has a wing nut that resembles Mickey ears on his engine air cleaner. As I’d hoped, it was there. (Thanks to Brian).

Speaking of Mama Melrose’s, Vickie and I had a fabulous dinner there before admiring the Osborne Lights. My Minestrone Soup and Chicken Cacciatore were outstanding! Just before dinner, right outside Pizza Planet, I spotted Santa about to deliver goodies to someone on an upper floor.

Each Holiday Season, it’s great fun to look for Hidden Images in the fabulous Osborne Lights!

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. The last time I was there at Christmas we saw the Dalmatian scratching at the door during the day, but when we went back at night he was gone! Like someone had finally let him in the house!
