Hidden Mickeys at Downtown Disney's West Side



  1. After crossing the bridge to get to the West Side (the "short cut" after 7 pm), there is a little tug boat type structure which is just below the Jessica Rabbit Pleasure Island sign. On this tug boat there are three life preservers all connected to form a Hidden Mickey.

  1. We found Mickey in the rest rooms outside of the entrance to Cirque du Soleil. They are in the corner floor tile by the entrance door of both the mens and womens restrooms.
    REPORTED: daverenee 01 NOV 98
    We spotted this hidden Mickey at the new Cirque du Soleil building at Downtown Disney West Side. In the restrooms that are part of the new building closest to House of Blues and Disney Quest, the white floor tiles have an occasional colored circle in them. They're all random, nothing even close to a Mickey, EXCEPT for one tile to the left of the enter/exit door - three circles, all blue, correctly proportioned. My wife checked the Lady's room and there was one in there as well!
    CONFIRMED: Todd Johnson 15 DEC 98
    This may or may not be planned, but in the male restroom on the ground floor at the Cirque de Soliel theater. Walk in the door and look down at the tile floor. There are three circles, I believe they are red, laid into the larger white tile. Colored circles are throughout the design of the restroom, but only these three at the entrance form the special design.

    During our trip to WDW in July 2000 we attended a performance of LA NOUBA. Before entering the theatre I made a stop at the men's room (the one located under the main entrance staircase)it was there that I noticed a Hidden Mickey. Just before you exit the men's room if you look down at the floor right below the hinge on the exit door you will see the classic Mickey in black tile set into the white floor tile. Anyone else ever notice this? Is there one in the ladies room too? I'm anxious to know.

  1. This may be wishful thinking, but this hidden Mickey is located at the merchandise store at HOB. Before you enter the store, above you is a tin roof with holes punched in it. During the day, these holes cast a circular spots of light on the brick walkway surrounding the store. If you are at the entrance, walk to the very left edge of the store at you'll see 3 spots of light forming a Mickey head. The only reason I'm reporting this is because all of the holes in the tin roof run in a horizontal line except for these three which happen to form a Mickey Head. I give credit to my Mom for finding this before I did!

    This Hidden Mickey is near the end of the queue line on Alien Invasion in DisneyQuest. Right before entering the ride (at the end of the queue) look straight across to the green "Exit" sign. Then look up above that. You will see the three circles, or loops, creating a Hidden Mickey. I believe there are one or two lights on these loops, but it looks pretty obvious to me. My wife found this one!

CyberSpace Mountain

  1. At the CyberSpaceMountain attraction, when you create a coaster, use the SPACE terrain and choose the slowest speed... there is a hidden Mickey and Minnie in the film! They are in the first tube-walkway you pass under(or over) while on the ride. It's easiest to see if you choose the slowest speed.
    REPORTED: Kathy 18 AUG 99
  2. The "double loop" track design is an obvious Mickey.
    REPORTED: anon 13 DEC 98
    I would agree that the "double loop" on the Cyberspace Mountain is a hidden Mickey, though it is a little vauge. The way it is raised above the track level (relative term) and the raise in the center seem to suggest the top of the head, but there is no definite "face".
    CONFIRMED: anon 14 JUL 99
  3. About 2/3 down the ride, you will bank back and see 3 planets forming the hidden Mickey. An employee confirmed this and began my seach for other Mickeys.

  2. Upon entering the attraction, you take an elevator to the Ventureport. To see this hidden Mickey, stand directly between the entrances to the Explore Zone and Score Zone and look up at the microscope-looking thing hanging from the center of the room--I'm not quite sure what it is, but on the end of it are various spheres. There are two large ones and two small ones. If you tilt your head a little to the left, you can pick out a Hidden Mickey, plain as day! It's right there. The seoncd larger sphere is behind the other large sphere that makes up Mickey's head. His ears are the two smaller ones. It looks too much to be a Hidden Mickey that I can't keep from reporting it.

    Hanging from the roof of DisneyQuest there is a gigantic ray-gun-thing. At the lower end is a group of spheres. If you are standing on the third floor, between two pillars, Mickey should be visible. The ears are pointing to the left. (If you're looking at the signpost, you should be halfway between "Score Zone" and "Explore Zone".) Another group of spheres is visible from the 4th floor, to the left of the previous view point. (I noticed this one when telling my dad (in the Wonderland Cafe) about the other one.)
