While Disney is known for their spectacular shows, food, and attractions, a little known form of entertainment are Disney’s intricately placed Hidden Mickeys! What are Hidden Mickeys? Well, to put it simply, they are Mickey Mouse silhouettes that are hidden throughout Disney’s parks, restaurants, hotels, and even in the Springs!
This Hidden Mickey can be found outside of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World
I have been to Disney quite a bit, but my boyfriend had never been before. So when we booked our trip in May I explained to him what they were and we decided to make a game of it. Of course, since I have been to Disney before we agreed that all of the Mickey’s I already knew about wouldn’t count. So I found an app in the Apple Store that would keep track of how many each of us found (I won, of course) and over the course of seven days we kept a lookout for things we may find.
You can find this one in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom.
While looking for Hidden Mickey’s are a great way to pass time while you’re standing in lines or simply sitting down to take a break for the hot Florida sun, my favorite thing about them is that it gives you a reason to slow down and pay attention to the detail that Disney’s imagineers have put into ensuring that guests have a truly magical experience. I have noticed so many things that I never would have if I hadn’t been playing the game with Layton. My absolute favorite Hidden Mickey is Expedition Everest. You read that right. The entire ride is one giant Hidden Mickey.
This Hidden Mickey is my favorite because it can only be seen from an aerial view. It took me years to figure out that this was Disney’s truly Hidden Mickey.
Do you ever search for Mickey’s when you go to Disney? If so, which are your favorites?
