  1. I just noticed this today and I did not see it listed on your sightings. On the Disney web page if you go to the main page for WDW theme parks in the bottom right corner of the picture is a mickey head.
    REPORTED: Teresa 06 APR 01
  2. Take a quick look at the Magic Kingdom brochure (the one with the 3 pumpkins hidden Mickey.) Now look in the top left corner of this picture. Strange, but those three orange leaves look like a mouse we all know...

  3. I'm not sure if anyone has sent this one in yet. While riding a bus back to the TTC of the Magic Kingdom, the bus driver gave a few hidden Mickeys to me. He said one of the rarest ever seen was on bus 2711. It is the only bus that has a Mickey on it. The last day I was at WDW, I saw this bus pulling into MGM. The Mickey is a red Mickey head, and is on both the front and back of the bus. I'm not sure of the exact course this bus takes since it can change every now and then, but I believe the bus driver said that it sometimes can be seen at the TTC of the Magic Kingdom.
    REPORTED: Liz Vroes 23 JUN 00
    Probably the most obscure and undocumented hidden Mickey is one that we found on a bus. On WDW Bus # 4749, there is a hidden Mickey in the floor under the right pair of seats just in front of the rear door.

  4. I was just on disneyworld.com, and I found that if you scroll to the bottom of most of the attraction descriptions, there is a small Mickey icon. If you click on that icon, a window will open, giving hints on where to find hidden Mickeys on that attraction.
    REPORTED: Harry Walker 04 MAY 00
  5. In the Disney Catalog, there is a poster that's called "The Hidden Mickey". And it's a picture of the Cinderella Castle at WDW made of candy and with a background of forest and stuff. In the foreground there are all the classic Disney characters! The poster is litteraly packed to the limit with Hidden Mickeys, both VERY obviolus and some really cleverly hidden ones. It's a really neat poster and I personally think that this site should to ask for promision to use it.

  6. I went to WDW October 1999 and brought a year 2000 poster, with different characters on it with the four parks in the background. If you look just behind Alices shoulder there is a group of flowers in the shape on Mickey's head

  7. Look carefully at the female cast members ears. Some of them are wearing Mickey earrings

  8. As you enter (and exit) the park off of the highway you go under an archway welcoming you to Walt Disney World. Part of the arch is constructed of a purple mesh material. The holes in the mesh form a Hidden Mickey. (It is possible the hole that make the head could also be smaller Mickeys themselves. It is hard to tell while driving you would need to stop and look.
    REPORTED: Michelle Parsons 11 MAR 97
    CONFIRMED: Robert & Deborah Peters 16 APR 97
    There are Mickeys on the signs, but I don't think the smaller holes make Mickeys.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Melanie Emmons 26 SEP 97
  9. When you enter on the road, the Walt Disney World billboards or blocks have hidden Mickeys on the back. From the front the signs show his ears but from the back you see a tri-circle Mickey!
    REPORTED: Kyle S 28 MAR 98 pict from hiddenmickeys.org
  10. John pointed out that the flowers were all planted in threes...this is from Epcot, or maybe the TTC, but they were planted like that in many locations around the World!
    REPORTED: John & Melanie Emmons 14 APR 97
  11. The cash register receipts from most of Walt Disney World's shops have Mickey Heads as a watermark on them. The Mickey watermarks are on all receipts except those for food and ticket purchases.

    REPORTED: Bill Jones 13 MAR 02
  14. Although the Walt Disney World complex is not really shaped like Mickey, you might just take a look at a Disney map of the complex. The overall shape on the map takes on Mickey's head and ears. The left ear is Magic Kingdom, Discovery Island, River Country, Ft. Wilderness, Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian in a circle around the lake. The right ear is Dixie Landings, Disney pict from hiddenmickeys.org Institute Villas, WDW Village Hotels, Typhoon Lagoon, Pleasure Island, Vacation Club and Port Orleans in a circle. The head is Epcot, Yacht & Beach Club, Swan, Dolphin, Boardwalk Villas/Inn, Disney Studios and Caribbean Beach in a circle. The All-Star Resorts and Blizzard Beach form a star just to the left.

The Mickey is under the Mickey Mouse Snowman's arm on, from the view, his left( Which is really his right arm). It is made up of three snowballs. (You have to tip the cup a little to actually see it!)
    REPORTED: Linda Walker 01 APR 02

    UPDATE: Hayley 25 JUL 99
  24. On our recent trip to Walt Disney World this summer we spotted many hidden Mickeys on the refillable mugs at Disney's Port Orleans Resort. It seems that the very imaginative cast members stick 3 black dots arranged as Mickey's face and ears to the bottom of the mug so that are able to tell who has paid for them. Pretty cute!
    REPORTED: Karen 07 SEP 98
    I just bought a Dixie Landings refillable mug from a local thrift store and guess what the splashes of water coming out of the fish bucket on the right side if you really look do resemble a Mickey
    CONFIRMED: a.lynn krajny 07 DEC 01
  25. I recently walked through the Contemporary Resort parking lot where I saw a Cast Member parking sticker. It was rectangular with small red Mickeys going across in rows, and down to the end of the sticker. It had "97" on it and a serial number.

    I don't know about a hidden mickey in EVERY mug. I may have found one on the Winnie the Pooh scene mug with Rabbit pushing Pooh out of the trunk hole. But there is NOT a hidden mickey on the new and beautiful "From Pooh's Garden" mug that can be found at the Art of Disney store.
    UPDATE: Brandon Tomasello 26 MAY 01
  33. I ordered the Disney/Unijet video brochure for the MK/MGM/Epocot in January, however I only noticed last night that the cardboard mailer it comes in contains two Mickey shaped slots as the bit the tab tucks into.

  37. I noticed a Hidden Mickey on some of the cigarette recepticles around Walt Disney World. If you look at the holes where you extinguish your cigarette, some of the receptacles have a big cirle and two smaller ones. It stands out and is not blended with the other holes. Not all of them had this, but some do.
