Hidden Mickeys

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?

The Edison

Disney Springs is home to many bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues. It’s almost impossible to be bored at the Springs. Disney brought in 2018 by introducing their newest addition to the family: The Edison.

The Edison is themed after the roaring ’20’s. It’s backstory is that it was originally an electric power plant that was converted to a bar. So all of you steampunk fans out there should get a kick out of the place. It’s amazing!

When you first walk in to The Edison, you will see one of their three bars. You can roam around upstairs and find many booths and tables to sit at while watching old turn-of-the-century cartoon short clips playing from projectors straight onto the wall. Downstairs are two other bars with a lot of seating and a stage.

By day The Edison is a fancy, turn-of-the-century style restaurant. It is a little overpriced, but the food is delicious and the ambiance is unlike anything else you’ll ever experience. So is it worth it? Definitely.

By night The Edison removes the tables from the basement area, and a live band plays current songs in that seductive, jazzy 20’s way. You will also see aerial artists, flapper girls dancing, stilt walkers, and the works! There is no doubt that a lot of work goes in to ensuring that customers get their money’s worth. As I’ve stated before, the food and drinks are a little pricey, but what you get in return makes the money worth it. The best part? There is no cover charge to get in! So even if you don’t eat or drink, you are more than welcome to go in and check it out!
