Hidden Mickey Hunting

I thought I’d have a little fun today, and just share some of the Hidden Mickeys that can be found around the World…What is a Hidden Mickey? Hidden Mickeys started out as inside jokes among the Walt Disney Imagineers. A Hidden Mickey is an image of Mickey Mouse concealed in the design of a Disney attraction (ride, resort, etc…). Originally, it took the shape of a head and ears silhouette, Disney.com, i.e. one large circle with two smaller circled on top in the appropriate place, but Hidden Mickeys can take on many forms.  In designing, constructing or adding the final touches to an attraction, Imagineers subtly “hide” Mickey Mouse silhouettes in plain sight. Soon, it became a tradition, and as the word spread, Disney fans everywhere went on the search for Hidden Mickeys in Disney movies and theme parks.

So, here are just a few of the many hundreds you can find all over Disney World, and some of my family’s favorites…

Matthew seems to find his own Hidden Mickeys everywhere we go 😉

I’m not sure if this one is there anymore, it’s where the Playhouse Disney Show was, but it changed again.

we found this one on Test Track but I’m not sure if it’s still there after the re-design.

As you can see, Mickey is everywhere! You just have to stop for a second and let him find you.
