  1. In Bruce's Shark World (first floor), hidden Mickeys are located on the two informational signs on the back right and left of the room. If you look at each sign, there's a open clam shell, in the bottom right hand corner, with a cluster of 3 pearls in the shape of Mickey.

  2. Hidden Mickeys can be found in Bubble formations located on informational signs located both in the ground floor manatee exhibit, and in the Nemo and Friends room. In the manatee room, it's located on the sign to the right as you enter. You can see a tiny bubble Mickey located 2/3's of the way up on the left hand side if the sign. In the Nemo and Friends room, the Mickey is located on the sign to the left. It's a bigger bubble Mickey located in the middle of the sign, slightly to the right.

  3. On the same Nemo and Friends sign described above, you can see a grouping of circles in brain coral that appear to contain a hidden Mickey

  4. While doing some research for our first WDW trip, I discovered this site. I paired up our five kids into two teams to search for Hidden Mickeys as something to keep them busy while waiting in lines, etc. We took a break while at Epcot to ride the monorail around. On the return trip, my oldest got excited for finding another Hidden Mickey in the water (after we went around Spaceship Earth before Living Seas). I told her that was great, thinking she was being a typical youngun and dreamed up the Hidden Mickey. Later, as we made our way to Living Seas she pulled me aside to look at one of the ponds and showed me her Hidden Mickey. Sure enough it was there. A white drain in the pond two "extra" caps making a Hidden Mickey. It's the pond on your right as you are looking at the Living Seas. I am amazed she was able to see it from the Monorail!!!

  5. In looking at an map of Epcot the Living Seas building is shaped like Mickey's head. The main head is located towards the monorail track, the ears are towards the World Showcase lake.

  6. As you get out of the motorized car, having arrived at Seabase Alpha, walk straight ahead to the submarine (sea rover) suspended just beyond the railing. Look down at the floor and you should see Mickey formed in shadow. Part of his head is chopped off, alas.

    The shadow on the floor under the submarine is definitely there. A Disney Cast Member pointed it out to me.

  7. At the Living Seas as you entered the building and walked along the path, there were items to entertain you while you waited, one of these items was a diver's suit on display and just after that there was a picture of a diver's suit which resembles a pea pod. The "face" in the suit forms a slightly longated Hidden Mickey.

  8. On the first floor, if you stand with your back to the Diver Lock-Out chamber there is a red circle in the carpet in front of you. This forms the head of a hidden Mickey. There are two spotlights that shine on the floor and form the ears.
    REPORTED: Jill Mowry 14 AUG 98
  9. When in SeaBase Alpha, near the restrooms, if you look out into the tank at the coral in front of the window you will see a full Mickey head. Ears and nose are fairly easy to make out.
    REPORTED: Don Aldridge 08 OCT 96
    It's at the second window after the restrooms. It's a little blotchy but what can you expect from manmade orange coral.
    CONFIRMED: Tom & Renée Shaw 27 DEC 96
    When I scuba dove in the Living Seas, I saw an orange coral that was in the shape of Mickey's face.

    CONFIRMED: The Winn Family 05 MAR 97
    When I took part in the Divequest adventure, I saw a man made orange Hidden Mickey in the coral. This is near the bottom of the part of the coral shaft you get to go through.
    CONFIRMED: Crispin C. Bottomley 04 APR 98
  10. I have a coral formation map of Disney World's Living Seas. There is a rather large "Hidden Mickey" coral formation on the smallest cut off area on the tank. I think it is close to the observation area.
    REPORTED: Nicholas Wood 01 MAR 97
  11. Look out the first window on the right hand side of the Observation Deck. You can see 3 rows of rocks on the sand. After the third row, there are more rocks. At the edge there are three rocks that are arranged, probably by the divers, in the familiar tri-circle pattern

Coral Reef Restaurant

There are 6 hidden Mickeys in the architecture of the refurbished Coral Reef Restaurant

  1. Toward the restrooms there is a payphone operated by Vista-United Telecommunications. There is a Mickey on the phone. There is also a Mickey on the phone book.
    REPORTED: Tom and Renée Shaw 17 JAN 00
  2. At the check-in desk, there are rows of glass. The top row has cracked glass, but the next tier down has bubbles. In the section in the middle, 3 sections on each side of it, there is an upside down Hidden Mickey. Most of the bubbles are not exactly right, but these 3 are.
    REPORTED: Gregory Baker 11 APR 99
    I have seen the hidden Mickey that resides at the front desk of the Coral Reef. There are six sections of bubbled glass--the middle section holds the hidden Mickey.
    UPDATE: anon 28 APR 00
    The hidden Mickey at the podium in the coral reef has been moved. It is now in the second glass from the right instead of in the middle. They recently had to change a light bulb and they took them all out and put them back in differently.

  3. If you are standing with your back to the aquarium, to the far left on the first set of booths on the tile partition, there is a blue tile hidden Mickey, it is hard to find at first but it truly is Mickey.
