    OK...I zooomed way out and way in, and still dont see anything but the ponds from far away, and some trees clustered together closer up. Sorry I still dont see it.

    And I looked again and still only see trees from the distance you gave. Maybe the bigger one looks like the main head part and the one next to it a left ear but no right ear to be seen, and if you zoom in one more the trees separate into more trees.

    Personally I see one more in the baseball field over to the left at that distance...lol

    Are we looking at the same picture?
    It is definately a Mickey, and the circles are almost perfect. If those are trees that is pretty dang good!

    Okay, it is trees. I had it zoomed too far out and thought it was ponds. Upon closer inspection (literally) I realized it was trees.

    OK.....Something was really weird with the links for me, I guess. I kept getting a residential area with a baseball field to the left is why I didnt see anything. I clicked on the link again and got the right picture this time. No wonder I thot my recent age increase was effecting my eyes.

    Yes I do see it now. LOL CLear as day. OK...no one else quote me, I was getting a complex. LOL

    BTW...I typed it in by hand at one point thinking the link was off and got the same weird pic, Yet another reason I dont use google that much...lol It hates me.


    Alright, I figured out what it was doing. It was taking me northwest a bit of where it was. Just do a search for Clermont, Fl and you will see why I couldnt find it. I was looking to where the arrow was pointing.

    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Well, I'm just happy you got to see it Vixen! You were probably seeing this baseball field and housing area thinking I was off my rocker!!

    I thought it was a pretty neat little discovery and I wanted to share it with more Disney fans!!

    I would still love to know who did that! Far more interesting than some silly old crop circles in the UK! Just kidding as I know our British friends take those crop circles pretty seriously!

    Disney by the numbers lists this factoid about it:

    50,000 pine trees were planted by WDW cast members across 50 acres to form a “hidden Mickey” in honor of the WDW’s 20th anniversary on February 27, 1992.

    If you google "Mickey Forest" you will find lots of info, particularly from the Orlando Sentinel.

    This hidden mickey is so large, the footprint would cover most of the magic kingdom. I've always wanted to drive out to see it, but figured it would just be a disappointment from ground level. Wouldn't be able to see the Mikey Forest for the trees.

    Wow. That's pretty cool! Hmm.... Maybe it is owned by warner brothers.... yup must be it lol. I wonder what the story/purpose of it is....
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!
