Hidden Mickey's at Walt Disney Word

We have recently gotten into an aspect of Disney culture. No, it is not trading pins, although The Short Chic did start begging for those this trip.  We have recently become addicted to finding Hidden Mickey's!

In case you have no idea, a Hidden Mickey's is a representation of Mickey that has been placed subtly in a place that you are not expecting it. It is not the primary point of reference but if you are looking closely it grabs you! If you are lucky you can be looking at one thing and suddenly find a Mickey.

Let me show you!

The first example of a Hidden Mickey actually came from the Disney show: Once Upon a Time. Are you watching this show? We just binged watched it on Netflix and I can say that we are totally hooked! During Season 3 as the opening credits were rolling, I spied this Hidden Mickey.

The second example was found on our first day we were at Disney World. If you look around long enough while visiting Epcot's The Seas with Nemo and Friends aquarium, you are sure to find this Hidden Mickey at the bottom of the sea.

The next examples all come from the new Be Our Guest Restaurant in Fantasyland. This was by far our favorite meal while at Disney and we enjoyed just lingering around and exploring the decor!

This may be difficult to see but in this painting that is hanging in the Library you can see a Hidden Mickey in the plate of food by Chip. 

Another example from the Library. It took me a long time to find the Hidden Mickey in this photo but it there. You can find several Mickey's all on their sides along the light fixture.

The Short Chic actually found the next Hidden Mickey. I was such a proud Momma! This example can be found in the Library hanging next to the painting shown earlier. This Mickey is in the bubbles closest to Mrs. Potts. 

The next Hidden Mickey is still at Be Our Guest but it is in the ballroom (the room we ate in). If you look up you can actually find a Hidden Minnie in the clouds.

The Husband found the next Hidden Mickey. After you finish your meal at Be Our Guest, you get to meet The Beast. On the way out you pass through a room lined with Knights. If you look carefully you can find a Hidden Mickey.

This Hidden Mickey was found in Epcot's World Showcase in Morocco's Promenade Shop.

How about this Hidden Mickey. Located at the Club Cool in Epcot Center. You can taste Coca-Cola from around the world and find a Hidden Mickey in the circles on the back wall. Look closely, it is upside down! (On a side note, how cute are those shirts! Yes, we made them prior to our trip!)

At Disney's Enchanted Tales with Belle you can find a Hidden Mickey in the firewood logs. Look low!

My final example was found on the boat ride in Epcot's World Showcase on the Gran Fiesta Tour with the 3 Caballeros in Mexico.  I enjoyed a Pineapple Margarita rimmed with Chili Sugar (absolutely yummy!) as I rode this ride. I about spilled my drink when I spied a Hidden Mickey at the end of the ride.

These are just a few of the Hidden Mickey's at Disney World. There are hundreds more; it is estimated that there are over 600 but Disney has never disclosed an official number! Hidden Mickey's are proof that no matter how many times you have been to Disney there is more to see than can ever been seen and more to do than can ever be done! (Get the reference?) Hidden Mickey's will have you looking closer at everything. And if you do look closer, you just might be rewarded by finding a new Hidden Mickey!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
