  • Do you look for Hidden Mickeys?

    There seems to be quite an interest in Hidden Mickeys, with books, web sites and more devoted to the quest for the little fellow. So, I was wondering..

    Do you look for Hidden Mickeys when you go to WDW?

      We first heard of Hidden Mickey's in the Birnbaum's Guide on our 2001 trip.

      They suggest looking for them while waiting in lines and such. We really enjoyed it. And, it is one thing that doesn't cost you anything while you are in WDW

      So hunt 'em down and Enjoy!

            I didn't know that about the Publisher. I have a friend who had breakfast on the Wonder With him. I so wish I could have been htere too.

              I look for Hidden Mickeys everywhere - not just at WDW . I got so used to doing it at WDW that it is almost like I am always on the lookout. I find lots of accidental "Hidden" Mickeys in just my everyday life. Call me obsessed if you must . I have also found some purposely hidden Mickeys in Disney movies.

                Does anyone know if the Disney animators (the dying breed that they are) have ever hidden Mickeys in any of the films? I find myself looking sometimes... not sure if I'm wasting my time or not.

                  They have been for years. One of my fav's in in Tron... one of the CGI scenes. It is a profile Mickey. Not sure about recent ones though.

                    there's a bunch in Lion King 1 1/2
                    there's a section on the DVD that helps you find them

                        Lilo and Stitch has at least 3 of them

                        1. profile mickey on laundry soap bottle
                        2. classic circle mickeys in the fruit stand
                        3. in the lava/sand where pleakley washes up on shore

                          The one in Tron is awesome. I'd never seen the movie until a few months ago, and all the sudden around an hour and 10 or 12 minutes into it this wonderful Hidden Mickey filled up almost the entire screen. I also spotted one in Lilo and Stitch on the gauges in the space ship (I think it was a space ship).

                            Wait a second... I LOVE that movie and never even thought to look for a hidden Mickey!!!

                            Looks like poker tournament tonight... followed by some (very) late-night Tron-watching!!
