I am a member of the FANTASMIC! crew as a character. We too have a hidden Mickey. If you look at the water screens when Jiminy Crickett is on it, in the bottom left hand corner. Three of the bubbles join to create Mickey. We asked the artists for the show for confimation and they said they did it on purpose.

This is one that you can check out only at special times....it is in the Fantasmic! show....the Mickey occurs in the show that happens when Sorcerer Mickey is going down the river, just before the whirlpool scene. The Mickey Head appears in the foam of the water just ahead of Mickey. The whole sequence happens in a split second and occurs just before the pirate ship comes on stage. Good luck finding this one.

I'd like to confirm the Hidden Mickey seen in Fantasmic! In the whirlpool scene on the water screen, right before the Columbia pirate ship floats by, the water flows together to form the basic shape of Mickey for a few seconds. It took me two times to actually see it, but it's there!

Yes there is a Hidden Mickey in Fantasmic on the part where Mickey is just about to be sucked into the whirlpool. It is only there for a second, and it can also be seen in the movie Fantasia, because that is where this clip of movie came from.

Confirming the Hidden Mickey during Fantasmic right before Mickey goes down the whirlpool. I pulled out my Fantasia video and confirmed that this clip exists in both places.

I just saw the FANTASMIC! show a few days ago, sitting along the rivers, and would like to confirm the Mickey oon Belle's Dress. It's located right in the center of her dress, at the top, by her heart.

In the show FANTASMIC!, yes, there is definitly a "hidden Mickey" on one of the costumes; that of Belle's dress. How do I know this, I work in costuming for the show. The sparkling "diamond" broach on the center of her bodice is in fact in the form of a Mickey head. It is only visible if sitting along Rivers of America. Its' value is around $85, but far from the value of the dress in the 5 digit range. That is the only hidden Mickey on any costumes for that show and hats off to you for discovering it, not many people realize it.

If you stand on the Fantasmic stage (during the day) there are three barrels which are covering something, which form a Mickey.
REPORTED: Jeff Blugrind 31 AUG 96
There are three tree stumps in the water just off of the mill house side of the stage that seem to form a Mickey.
