Let’s examine some Hidden Mickey images (and other Hidden Characters) around Walt Disney World. At the Magic Kingdom, a candidate for inclusion in our Hidden Mickey catalog is this image in the last scene of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. The hanging pots in the kitchen sometimes come together as a classic (three-circle) Hidden Mickey, or do they? Sometimes, as you move out of the scene, the pot images can be seen as reflections on Mom’s computer screen. (Thanks to Taylor Singer.)
In the first room of the Haunted Mansion, a changing portrait of an aging man hangs on a wall to your left (as you enter). Some of the tiny decorative images in the oval border surrounding the portrait resemble upside-down classic Mickeys. In this photo, count up five or six images from the bottom. These are difficult to spot in the darkened room.
At Epcot’s Journey Into Imagination With Figment, the Hidden Buzz Lightyear on the right side of the entrance queue has recently been resting on his back!
Near the end of Living with the Land at Epcot, you can see a label for “Mickey’s Mini Gardens” (a Hidden Mickey reference) just to the left of the green test tube Hidden Mickey.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, other Hidden Mickeys that are difficult to make out are on guitars stuck to the ceiling of the gift shop of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Three tiny classic Hidden Mickeys are on each silver plate at the base of two guitars, one green and one blue. They’re formed by holes for the “ears” and screws for the “heads.”
Have fun with your Hidden Mickeys search!
