Well ... here it is folks. Through the help of WDW guests, I have a
couple of additions to this Hidden Mickey list. I have received many
requests for this list and it is much easier to re-post it on a
regular basis (how about once a month).
The following is a list of the HIDDEN MICKEYS (HM) at WDW. I started
with the list that was posted by Sean Squire (future CEO of Disney).
I added the HM's that I found by myself or with the help of a cast
member. I also added with each one if I confirmed the siting.
-> You can spot Mickey's shadow in the patterns made by the sun
shining through the railings along the walkway Mickey should be
visible in mid-morning and again in mid-afternoon. (unconfirmed)
-> With dinner at King Stefan's, small plate with a 3 inch tall
margarine sculpture of mickey was served. (CONFIRMED by
firstname.lastname@example.org (Raymond L Juers) Annapolis, MD)
Star Trader Shop (Tomorrowland)
-> Mickey as Steamboat Willie appears in the mural. (unconfirmed)
-> Some say there are 3 large glass spheres as you exit Ryca 1 that
make a Mickey, but it is pretty weak. (unconfirmed)
Splash Mountain - Imagineers say that there are 3 hidden Mickeys.
-> In the middle of the ride, if you look at all the clouds, one of
them has a peculiar resemblance to the Mouse enough to stand out
from all the other clouds. I was told that this is behind the
boarded up house that the rabbit left. The HM is about the size of
a quarter. (unconfirmed)
-> At the end of Splash Mountain, in the riverboat scene, the pink
clouds in the background look suspiciously like Mickey Mouse lying
down for a nap. The feet and belly are in focus, but his head is
rather stretched. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> At the scene (on your right) where the fox and bear at projected
on a screne running over a hill, the HM appears at the very end of
the projection. (unconfirmed)
-> A shadow appears at a certain time of the day that is a HM. You
have to be standing at a certain spot to see it. (unconfirmed. You
think I was going to spend ALL of my vacation looking for these
-> On the ride during the last lift (where the rocks 'fall') there
is a lamp overhead that is supposed to have a HM projected on it
-> Look for the three cactus (cactii?) just outside the exit in the
shape of a HM. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
Frontierland Train Station
-> There are three wooden barrels (one big and two small) placed to
look like another HM. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> The Get Set Jet Game at Backstage Magic is set on three circular
platforms in the shape of Mickey. (unconfirmed)
-> Mickey is painted clearly in the green brocoli like stuff in the
mural over the ride. He is as plain as day if you have patience
to find him. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> Enter and go straight to the railing and look down. The table
and stools are arranged to be a HM. During the day the stools are
move around a lot so it may not be that way for long. (CONFIRMED
by Stan Sroka)
-> While standing at the railing, turn towards the entrance and look
at the pattern on the floor from the overhead lights. They form a
large circle and two small circles on the carpet. (CONFIRMED by
Stan Sroka but it may be difficult to see during the day)
-> In Listen to the Land, spot him in the beginning leaf and vine
painting as the ride begins. (unconfirmed)
Later in the ride, look for the three horseshoes above the barn in
the farming scene. (unconfirmed)
-> In Kitchen Kabaret, the refrigerator handle is in the shape of
-> In Symbiosis Mickey is reported to be seen four times.
- Small stones in front of the crouching Indian man.(unconfirmed)
- baseball cal of the man driving a harvester. (unconfirmed)
- when looking at the woman taking a water sample in a lake, the
reflection in her sunglasses shows the cameraman wearing a
Mickey Mouse T-shirt. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
- The very end shows a farmer standing in a field. As the camera
pulls back, the field is shown to be in the shape of Mickey.
-> Just as the ride starts to go up, look overhead at the star
panels. In the second panel look to the left side of it and the HM
is in the shape of the stars. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
Norway, in the queue/loading area for the ride, look at the mural.
-> There is a Viking wearing Mickey Mouse ears on the ship.
(CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> The huge mariner on the right side (operating a large wheel) is
wearing a Mickey Mouse watch (ghosted Mickey circles). (CONFIRMED
by Stan Sroka)
-> The REALLY tough one here is the stewardess with the clipboard.
If you look at her chest, HER right, your left, you will see a
Mickey profile in the shadows of her white shirt. He is a little
distorted but definitely Mickey..too close to be a coincidence.
(CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
Horizons - you can find Mickey twice, maybe 3 times.
->At the entrance to Horizions supposedly if you look down there is
a pattern of Mickey's head made from the 3 spot lights in the
ceiling above. (unconfirmed)
->In one scene towards the end of the ride, the family is preparing
for a birthday party. One of the presents is wrapped in Mickey
World of Motion - look for Mickey twice.
-> In the scene about the used chariot lot, the middle chariot has a
Mickey headpiece. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> Later, as you approach the 1960's you will find everybody hitting
the open road. In one of the cars (a family going on vacation) is
a young boy wearing Mouse Ears. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> First, the main plaza is built in the shape of Mickey's head, with
Echo lake making one ear and the planters forming his nose and
mouth. Ask any cast member or just turn your guide map upside
down. (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
Great Movie Ride - Mickey is everywhere (an Imagineer's dream).
-> While I worked there I was told there is a Mickey in the Hollywood
set on the load dock, but damn if I couldn't find it for 3 months.
(unconfirmed. I even asked but a ride op who worked there from day
one and he said that there isn't one.)
-> As the vehicles enter Gansterland, Mickey's feet can be seen
peeking out from under the 'Public Enemy' poster. (CONFIRMED by
-> As you enter the Gangster scene, and approach the run down porch,
looking over your left shoulder towards the roof you will see
Mickey's silhouette in a warehouse window. (An interesting point
about this Mickey...It was not placed there by the Imagineers, but
rather by a guy named Carlos, who was a gangster at the Movie Ride
a few summers ago. The fake Warehouse windows are really next to
the actor's corridor, where the Mugsy's wait to take over
vehicles. There are chairs and a water cooler up there..it's
rather cozy. (I was Mugsy in the summer '92) When the Imagineers
found out Carlos had cut out a Mickey and put him there, they
liked it so much they kept it!) (CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka)
-> Further on in the Movie Ride you can find Mickey in the
heiroglyphics of the Raiders of the Lost Ark scene..(last block on
the left) having lunch with Donald Duck.. Interestingly, ALSO in
the heiroglyphics, directly across from Indiana Jones, you can
find C-3PO and R2-D2 carved in stone. There is also a very small
heiroglyphic painted with Mickey Mouse ears, but it is not visible
from the ride. (unconfirmed, I looked three times but it is rather
dark in there. I may have to use the forbidden FLASH PHOTAGRAPHY
to finally find it)
-> In Tarzan, if you look up into the trees on the right side to
Tarzan's tree house, you will see three grapes in a basket with a
spotlight on them. Yet another hidden Mickey. (CONFIRMED by Stan
-> Look for Mickey in one of the baskets circulating through the
maintenance area in the shape of 3 laser disks. (CONFIRMED by Stan
Sroka. Look for the bin marked 'KMS 81850')
-> Also reported is Mickey as a cookie cutter in the bin labeled
'PAD 61257' in front of one of the worker drones. (unconfirmed but
it is dark right there.)
-> When exiting down the corridor, there are six posters featuring
M&M's (the sponsor of ST). There was reported a HM in each of the
posters. I found three of the six. A ride op didn't know where
they all were either. (3 CONFIRMED by Stan Sroka/3 unconfirmed)
ON THE PROPERTY BUT NOT AT THE PARKS
-> Survey markers.
-> manhole covers.
-> Sand bunker on the sixth hole at the Magnolia Golf Course.
-> The putting green at the Eagle Pines & Osprey Ridge Golf Courses.
-> When entering the Contemporary Hotel via day guest monorailon the
exterior beam, the lights used if the restaurant area are viewed
to be in the shape of Mickey.
-> I saw a Hidden Mickey while riding the monorial between MK and
EPCOT. As you look out the right hand side of the monorail as
it passes over the road, you will see that the two lanes of
traffic are separated by a row of palm trees. As you pass by, you
will see a group of three palm trees in the median strip of the
road. When viewed from the proper vantage point, they form, you
guessed it, a Hidden Mickey.

I go atleast once a week, and i was looking around. I saw the one at the
land, with the lights. A host said "there are 10 inside and 8 outside of
kitchen kabaret." I found one in a poster. Some woman had an outfit that
resembled one. Couldn't miss it. But i didn't see 18. The dunes on the
land ride look like a micky from the resturant. I'm going to MGM newyears
eve, i'll look around there for some.

There is a new "Be Our Guest" commercial for WDW which premiered on
the Very Merry Christmas parade from WDW on Christmas morning (but
it has been running on network TV since then, too).
In the scene where the kid has his Mickey doll on the bed with him
as he's about to drift off to sleep, the camera pans over to the
resort room window which has a view of the castle.
Look at the clouds to the left of the castle as the fireworks are
going off. You'll see a Hidden Mickey cloud near the castle!
