Are you still searching for Hidden Mickeys with me?
Some Hidden Mickeys are difficult to capture in photos. As you move past scenes on a ride, your eyes may spot images that look like Hidden Mickeys but are actually illusions. I extracted the images in this article from my videos, so we can make a more informed decision about whether we’re looking at actual Hidden Mickeys.
This first photo comes from “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” in Fantasyland. You can see the three gold domes from above when you fly down toward the city on Aladdin’s magic carpet. As you experience the movie, these domes seem to form a classic three-circle Hidden Mickey. In the photo, the lower dome does seem slightly larger than the two domes above it. Do the three domes form a classic Hidden Mickey?
During the first part of “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh,” keep your eyes peeled at the scene on your left. Near a drawing of a tree, Piglet is hanging on in the wind, and shadows of leaves drift and twist in front of him. The last leaf turns to simulate a classic Mickey wearing a small sorcerer’s hat. Look to the right middle of the photo for the possible Mickey leaf shadow. What do you think? Is it Mickey? (Thanks to Dick Larson, and Tyler Glynn.)
In Tomorrowland, two amazing Hidden Mickeys are on the wall to your right at the first part of the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin ride. A classic Mickey with a green head and blue ears is on the first part of the lower right wall. Another classic Mickey is a foot or so to the left and below the first one. It’s made of circular markings on a star in the lower left corner of the photo.
