  1. This is in the Mulan parade, on Mulan's float (the tall one pulled by the horses, not the bike) there are 4 lions holding up her platform and 4 grey pedistals holding the lions, the hidden Mickeys are at the top of the pedistals just below the golden lions' feet. The Mickeys circle the whole pedistal and are visable from no matter which direction you look at it

Monster Sound Show

(formally Monster Sound Show)

  1. Early in the Martin Short/Chevy Chase film, Chevy walks up the stairs and knocks on the door of the house. If you look carefully to the lower left of the door there is a flower pot. When the lightning strikes you can clearly see the pot is shaped like Mickey. Don't blink because it is quick, but it is there. However, you get three chances to see it.
    REPORTED: Ed McDonough 14 NOV 96
    The Martin Short/Chevy Chase film has been replaced by a 101 Dalmatians cartoon.

Toy Story Parade

The parade closed Easter 1997

  1. There is a hidden Mickey in the dinosaur's skin in the Toy Story Parade. If you look down and to the left of the dinosaur's right arm, you can see a hidden Mickey formed by the folds of his skin. The head and ears are shaped somewhat like cubes and the whole thing is tilted to the left.
    REPORTED: Julie Williams 28 JUN 97

Muppet 3D

  1. In January there were Under Construction boards in use around the Muppet Fountain in the courtyard outside the Muppet Theatre. These boards, although temporary, might include a design seen elsewhere. If you look closely you see that the design is both a Hidden Mickey of the traditional head and ears, but also a Muppet nose and eyes. Not sure how long this will remain. (photo sent by email)

The Great Movie Ride & Mann's Chinese Theater

  1. In Gangster Alley when your tram is being hijacked look to the right of your tram. If you look into the window of the house surrounded by the fence you will see a Mickey Mousketeer hat resting on a table. If you are hijacked by the western bank robber (not the gangster), it is in the building in gangster alley you pass where the man yells, "Pipe down out there!."

Backstage Tour

Video Tape and DVD

Also, note that the tour entrance and routine has changed.
  1. As you pass through the archway and are heading toward the tour cars to the right you will see a bush that looks like Mickey as the sorcerer from Fantasia. To the left you will see a bush that looks like Mickey holding one of those film marker boards. The topiary Mickey from Fantasia is flanked by several dancing broom sculptures. It makes for a great "Kodak moment." Unless things have changed, you can get to it via a door in the Animation building. decor

    CONFIRMED: Melanie Emmons 23 APR 96
    Due to change in the tour route, the "clapboard" Mickey has been moved to the main plaza across from the Chinese Theater/Great Movie Ride. Also, this is called a "deliberate" Mickey on the "official" list. decor

  2. After you exit the ride portion of the Backstage Studio Tour, you enter the Backstage showcase. In the Rocketeer display case, on the second prototype design of rocket packets there is a bolt in the center of the propellor. Look at the bolt...it is Mickey Mouse.
    REPORTED: Bob Jaruszewski 01 AUG 95
    A Cast Member pointed it out It's real small, (about 1/4"), and is dead center of the back of the rocket pack.
    CONFIRMED: K Cross 14 AUG 95
    They changed the Rocketeer's back pack on The Backstage Tour. We even asked about the Mickey and were told it was there at one time but is now gone.
    UPDATE: Heather Clark 30 NOV 95
    I am a former Studio Castmember. I worked in the former Inside the Magic Special Effects and Production Tour. Even though the Backstage Studio Tour has changed to the Studio Backlot Tour, I think it still disembarks at the Studio Showcase. This is where you'll find this hidden Mickey. In the showcase, where many props from movies are displayed, there are prototypes for the Rocketeer's rocket pack. On the front of one of the prototypes, Mickey's face is imprinted on a top center screw. The Mickey is about the size of a nickel and is silver-toned. You'll have to look closely at the display case, but it is definitely there.
    CONFIRMED: Alison Lawrence 20 NOV 96
  3. I used to work as an MC at the Special Effects and Production tour. In the Special Effects Workshop (the show after the watertank show), the MC will point out props as everyone is filing in. Take a close look at the painted flats used in the movie Dick Tracy on the walls behind you. There are two Hidden Mickeys that were actually in the movie. One is easy to find on your own if you have a good eye. The second one is completely amazing and if I didn't tell you where it was, you probably would never find it. Find the flat with the graveyard scene. There, standing on top of one of the grave markers, you will find Mickey Mouse.
    REPORTED: Dawn M. Landers 12 JUN 96
    Lost due to change in tour.

  4. In the special effects tour, after you see the movie with Bette Midler, you go into a soundstage where the sets from the movie are on display. As you walk down the longest ramp towards the exit of the soundstage, look up on the wall in front of you. There is a huge green part of the set that has three distinct white circles on it that make a Hidden Mickey

Magic of Disney Animation

  1. When we were there the Animation tour was closed, and Mickey's pants were blocking one of the doorways. Pretty subtle.
    REPORTED: Joy Hogley 26 MAY 98
  2. When you enter the Animation Courtyard, go to the animation tour. Take the tour and watch the first of the two movies. When Capt'n Hook shows up on the boat and forces Robin to jump, there is a Hidden Mickey in the shadows of the corner of the boat.
    REPORTED: anon 12 MAR 97
  3. We spotted a hidden Mickey on the Hercules drawing in The Magic Of Disney Animation, it is on one of the pictures displayed on the left wall as you enter the room on the left of the waiting area after you enter, it is the room where they show how the annimators finish the pictures. The Mickey is on the wall of the palace, it is a background picture with no people in it, there is a set of stairs on the right then a small door and more to the left just before one of the pillars is a hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: Logston Family 29 APR 97

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

  1. On the concierge's desk below the lamp is a Mickey Mouse magazine.
    REPORTED: Tom & Renée Shaw 25 SEP 95
    Either the magazine is totally covered with dust so you can't see it, or it has been removed (or worse, stolen). It was no longer there in August.
    LOST: Melanie Emmons 24 AUG 96

The Darkroom

  1. The photo store at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Crossroads of the World has a Hidden Mickey in the Front window. In fact , the window itself is in the shape of Mickey's head.
    REPORTED: Jonathan Joseph 01 MAY 96
    The front of the store is a camera, and the "ears" are way too small to make a Hidden Mickey.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Melanie Emmons 28 AUG 96

Hollywood and Vine

  1. In the display window just to the right of the Hollywood Blvd entrance to Keystone Clothiers at the Disney Studios is an old camera. The main lens and two smaller round lens-like things make a Mickey.
    REPORTED: Uliassi 08 JUL 93
    It may have been there when he saw it, but there was no camera display when I was there.
    UPDATE: Graham Allan 18 MAY 94

Voyage of the Little Mermaid

  1. The 3-D sculpted sign out side has a Mickey in it. If you stand in the arch farthest to the right. (There are 3 arches in front of it. The middle one is the tall blue one that has the studio logo on it) Look up at Ursula's tentacles. The rolls form a Mickey. You have to stand in the right place to see it, though.
    REPORTED: Chris Caines 25 SEP 95
    CONFIRMED: Kelly Verge 02 DEC 95
    My sister and brother saw the Mickey but I'm still not convinced.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Heather Clark 30 NOV 95
    In late August, the sculpture was reduced to just Ariel.

  1. There is a Hidden Mickey in sound stage area of the Backstage Pass. As you stop in the second and third sound stage areas, a short video comes on the TV screens. In one part of it, you see landmarks from around the world painted in Dalmatian white with black spots. One of these locations is a fire hydrant. On the upper rim of the fire hydrant is a couple of black spots run together to form a very clear upside-down Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: Henry Sampson 01 DEC 96
    The Mickey is clearly visible on the spotted fire hydrant in the video shown during the Backstage Tour for '101 Dalmatians'.
    CONFIRMED: Maria Mungai 02 DEC 96
    The one in Soundstage 3 where they show all the different landmarks is gone. The laserdisk was changed out about a week ago and now it is an "HBO's From the Earth to the Moon" segment.
    UPDATE: anon 03 APR 97
  2. On sound stage 3 there is a red box on the wall that has a Mickey on it. I think it is a fire hose holder. On June 10th the sound stage was empty and you could see it from the tour
    REPORTED: bob walk 13 JUN 99
    In Studio Three on the walking tour. When studio three is empty a Mickey can plainly be seen on the firehose standpipe cabinet in the right rear corner of the studio.
    CONFIRMED: John C. and Robert Patterson 14 JUN 99
  3. In Backstage Pass to 101 Dalmatians in Tourbridge 2 which is right after you walk through the soundstages we play a video by Dr. John. In the 3rd spotted piano segment right near the very end after the bull and such in the lower right quadrent of the piano is a Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: anon 05 FEB 97
    CONFIRMED: Amie Gorrell 12 AUG 97
  4. In Soundstage 4, which is the room with all the sets, props and costumes from 101 Dalmatians, if you enter the room from the left hand door go to the very corner just past the ladder. The mansion facade has a part at the very top that reaches a point, below that is an icicle to the left of that is an Hidden Mickey made by 3 black spots. You can not see this untill after the video has run, the lights are not bright enough. Ask a Cast Member to show if you can't see it.

Spirit of Pocahontas

The Spirit of Pocahontas closed February 24th, 1996

  1. When sitting in the bleachers while watching the Spirit of Pocahontas at the Disney Studios, look to your left. You will see what looks like a partially demolished building. The Hidden Mickey is on the second story near the door and is formed by a large pipe sticking out along with two smaller pipes at the correct angle to form a Mickey shape.
    REPORTED: Disfan 15 NOV 95
    The three pipes on the partially demolished building are not close enough to resemble a Hidden Mickey... They are approximately 1-2 feet apart.
    UPDATE: Dan 20 NOV 95
  2. Personally, I think that Percy (the dog) is a Hidden Mickey. If you look at him when he is near-expressionless, he has dark circles around his eyes and muzzle. The dark circles look like a Mickey head!
