There are two covers and they are round of course, one of them has rocks around it to form the rest of Mickeys face and ears. This is definately a hidden Mickey.

  2. On the popcorn cup/bucket sold in Africa from one of the popcorn stands, there is a hidden Mickey in the sand. It is the classic outline (one big circle with two little ones on top) of Mickey's head. It is below the giraffes head, between the two elephants and is on the left side of the jeep Mickey and Minnie are riding in. If you still can't find it, it is just above and to the left of the Animal Kingdom logo. My mother purchased this cup during the holiday season of 2001. I am not sure if this cup/bucket is sold anywhere else in the parks.

Mombasa Marketplace/Ziwani Traders

  1. While browsing through Ziwani Traders, I found what I think is a Hidden Mickey. While standing in the center of the trading store, face the exit which leads out to the drink/refreshment stand in front of the Pangani Forest exploration entrance walkway. Look up on the top shelves of the store and you see various supplies needed for your safari. Look up to your right, in the corner are three nets (butterfly?) which are arranged to form a tri circle Hidden Mickey. The head is circular, the ears are slightly oval but arranged in the 10 and 2 o'clock positions forming the ears.
    REPORTED: Joe Morasco 23 JUN 98
    The Hidden Mickey reported for Mombasa Marketplace/Ziwani Traders is (I believe) wishful thinking. The nets that are in the positions of Mickeys ears are much larger than the one in place for his head that it is so out of proportion.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Joy Kovacs 05 AUG 98
    In the Mombasa Marketplace/ Ziwani Traders store, up on the wall, near one of the entrances,there are three nets which form the head of Mickey Mouse

  2. Inside the shop, look around the ceiling of the section with all the expensive stuff. There are three netsover laping each other. If you ignore the nets andfloww the outline of the three hoops you get a Mickey silloute.

Duka La Filimu

  1. A hidden Mickey is located in the Africa area of the Animal Kingdom of Walt Disney World. It is located just out side of the Mombasa Market Place on the side facing the Duka La Filimu very close to the building to the left of a door way about 1 foot from the wall. After crossing the bridge from the Tree of Life to Africa continue straight down the street toward the Kilimanjaro Safaris ride. There are a number a buildings on your right hand side. It is about the middle of the group of buildings along that path. It consist of a metal circular drain cover about 10 inches in diameter for the face and in the concrete around the drain cover are two 4 inch circular groups of 1 inch rocks perfectly spaced for the ears. There are no other rocks around the drain cover except at the two locations for the ears.

    Behind the fruit stand in front of the Safari entrance, there are several trees and benches (I hesitate to call this a courtyard). Walking the path through the trees, the path is mainly made up of irregular blocks of red-and-white stone and normal cement. Clearly in the cement, facing the back of the fruit stand and its grass-hut-like counters, is a large Mickey several feet across. The cement itself forms the Mickey and looks like it was laid separately from the rest of the cement. (ie, there's a clear outline)

    CONFIRMED: Karen Tribbe 25 MAY 99
    In Harambe Village there is a small island shaped rest area of trees and benches along the path that leads from the Safari queue areas to the Railroad Depot, near the pin station. There is a large hidden mickey in the pavement made from mud-colored asphalt surrounded by flagstones.

    CONFIRMED: George Nichols & Christine Smith 07 MAR 99
    On the pathway past the Ziwanis Traders and the Fruit stand, towards the Rafiki's Planet Watch trains, there is indeed a large hidden Mickey in the cement. The effect is created by false "cracks" in the path, which are dense enough to form clear circles that are distinguishable from the rest of the walkway. The whole thing is approximately 6-8 feet across. (2.2 - 2.4 meters, maybe?)

Kilimanjaro Safaris

Kilimanjaro Safaris

  1. I spotted a hidden Mickey in the Kilimanjaro Safari waiting line. It's on the branches of the big baobob tree. First, you have to be on the other side of the little animal enclosure that you see when you get in line. Look up in the branches and you'll see it.
    REPORTED: Randy Niemann 29 MAR 99
  2. I recently went to DisneyWorld for Magic music days and I was in line for the safari ride in Animal Kingdom and there are Mickey head sheped leaves to the right of the line in the bushes. I was amazed how Disney can even turn nature in to Mickey :)
    REPORTED: Sammie Nielsen 14 MAY 00

    After you pass through the main elephant area, before you round the corner to the red clay canyon, you pass through a gate with "rock" on both sides. Look to the back right, about 5 feet up. This one is made up of dark indentations.
    CONFIRMED: Blase Theodore 23 MAR 98
  11. As soon as you pass the rock paintings and round the curve look over to your left. There is a large mud hole where the white rhinos usually gather. It is in the shape of a Mickey head. I was a driver at Kilimanjaro Safari's from August 1999 to January 2000. I found this hidden Mickey during training. The funny thing is, my trainer didn't even know it was there! Remember, it's just before you get to the cheetahs!
    REPORTED: Lee S. Warren 25 JAN 00
    Right after the flamingo pond, before you get to the cheetahs, there are 3 watering holes...greenish in color, that are in the shape of a hidden Mickey. I, too, was a driver for Kilimanjaro, and know about and have seen this Mickey. They do flood in rainy weather and I was told by my trainer that WDW staff has to keep digging these holes out to keep the Mickey from getting completely messed up and merging together.

  12. There is a silhouette Mickey on one of the rocks in the lion exhibit on the safari. As you come up on the lions, there are several pillars of rocks and one short one on the right. Watch the short one as the jeep drives around the end. I swear I see two ears, the curve of forehead, and a nose facing the right on the side of this rock. This rock looks saddle-shaped once you pass around to the other side.
