  2. I remember seeing a Hidden Mickey formed by three boulders along the shore. The boulders are halfway out of the water, and the "circles" are completed by their reflections in the water..., you can only make this Hidden Mickey out while on the Mark Twain, and it is visible for a short while.

    Amazing how you can walk right by and not see things until they're pointed out by someone else, then they're easy.

    The first time I saw this listed, I thought, sure, right, there's a billion rocks all the way around the rivers... and then.... we saw it!!! Viewers on the Mark Twain should be on the 2nd or 3rd floors. Columbia viewers should be out on deck. As you round the back side of the River's near the Indian Chief, but on the other side of the ship, there are some rocks between the ship and the shore. The Davey Crockett canoes go on the other side of these rocks from where the ship is, and they are sort of planted out there. As you pass, 3 of the rocks are very suitably placed to form a Hidden Mickey...

  3. There are a lot of Hidden Mickey rock formations around the Rivers of America but one I know for sure is one a Cast Member who told me (who's name just happens to be Mickey!!!) He said there is one in the Indian Camp Grounds, on the shore, between two canoes. When you're looking for this one you have to look when the boat is before the Indian Grounds.

Mark Twain Riverboat

  2. Mounted on the wall of the Shipping Office, just to the right of the Mark Twain/Columbia dock, there is a mural of the Steamship Mark Twain as it sails around the Rivers of America entitled River Excursions. If one looks very closely (you need to get right up next to it) Mickey is standing alongside the passengers along one of the lower levels. Notice that it's the Mickey Mouse from Steamboat Willie!

  3. The Mark Twain Riverboat has iron grillwork on the top, (roof). The Hidden Mickey in directly in the front, and not too difficult to see. I noticed it from the banks of the Rivers of America, and rode the boat just to make sure.
    REPORTED: Oscar 04 SEP 96
    There is a matching one on the other side of the ironwork. The center also forms one that I would consider wishful thinking compared to this one.

    Ears are too close together.
    We saw the hidden Mickey in the Mark Twain Riverboat grillwork on the top (the smaller ones though, not the center one which is definitely wishful thinking!)

    Above the captain's wheel house, look above the roof line and see scroll-like Hidden Mickey. You can see this from the side of the boat. My daughter spotted this from Tom Sawyer's island.
  4. At the front of the boat there are two large black smokestacks, between the stacks there is grill work connecting them. If you look close to each stack there is a Hidden Mickey turned sideways on each side. Definitely a Hidden Mickey placed sometime after the original steamship - there is a picture in the Disney gallery of an earlier boat and there is not the same grill work done. You can also see this on the recent postcards of the Mark Twain boat if you look closely.

  5. The hidden Mickey is located on the top deck (the Texas deck) of the ship on the aft cabin. The corner suppport post on each side of the cabin has an ear carved in it.With the doors closed the windows appear as eyes and the knobs as his nose.

  6. I saw a Hidden Mickey while docking on the Mark Twain Steamboat. I was standing at the front of the port (left for those of you who don't know) side. As we were coming in,I looked down at the dock. There, made with a large hole and nails, was a very familiar shape.

    I looked the first few times, and couldn't see it, then when I started looking at the planks where guests can't step, I suddenly saw it. You can ask my girlfriend, she was there! Props to you on a great Mickey find!!!

  1. Below the deck, there is a chest with a brass plate on it. Cut into the plate are the famous ears making a hidden Mickey.

Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island

  1. In the exit gate of the Tom Sawyer rafts that leads to New Orleans Square, you must look at the gate from the inside and take a closer look at the holes that the nuts and bolts have formed. I left too quickly to take a picture of it.
