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!
