  6. I saw the most incredible Hidden Mickey anyone has ever witnessed. Now, the trick is to look down into the water for this mysterious Hidden Mickey. One key is light. You need to harness a certain amount of light in order to reveal this eerie Hidden Mickey. Another is timing. For my ride, after the singers recited "...It's small, small world..." the second time, I quickly looked down into the water, (a flashlight may be helpful) and there is a rock structure that resembles the magical mouse. It is fairly large and very beautiful. I was in awe. Don't get mad if you don't see it the first time. I went on the ride 5 or 6 times after the initial sighting and did not see it, but the 7th time I saw it again. Lucky seven! Good Luck everyone, and I hope you see this stunning Hidden Mickey!

    The lights don't touch and the "ears" are different sizes.

  11. There is a part where Don Quixote is jousting with a windmill, which for some reason is represented by a large spinning circle and a smaller spinning circle above it and to the right. There is also a spinning star decoration above the larger wheel. The result is a Hidden Mickey as you ride by (you may need to tilt your head to the right).
    REPORTED: John West 23 NOV 96
  12. It depends on the lighting, but the African dancers, to the right of Hyenas, form a Hidden Mickey. The light was hitting them so that they cast shadows on the wall that made what looked like a circle of Mickeys.

    We noticed that one of the vines that the monkeys hang from is a complete line of Mickey head profiles. The other vines are just leaves. It is very neat how sometimes you see things that you have never noticed before...even though you have ridden the ride a hundred times before!!

  18. I was riding It's a Small World for a 16th time. I was enjoying my ride until the ride suddenly stopped. I was downright furious. This gave me a chance to look around. I saw something peculiar. The funnly looking mexican's guitar was pointing at something. Behind the kids playing with the pinata and to the right of the skeleton is a distinct Hidden Mickey. I informed this to a cast member and he was mezmorized. I found a new hidden Mickey. Don't get mad i f you can't see it the first time. It took me 16 times to see it.

  22. As you are riding Small World there is a Mickey Shadow caused by one of the Japanese kites. The shadow looks like a up-side down classic Mickey on the wall in front of you and a little to the right as you are passing from one room to another.
    REPORTED: Deborah Crabb 11 MAR 06
  23. About 3/4 of the way through the ride, where the Palm trees with long strands of cellophane hang from the branches to the ground (simulating rain I assume), look toward the palm tree on the left. On the lower part of the wall (near that left tree area), a shadow from a plant/flower casts the inverted image of Mickey's ears and nose. I only had time to go through this ride once on this visit, so I hope this is enough detail(s) to verify.
    REPORTED: M. Moniuszko 10 JAN 98
  24. As you exit the ride on the right is a flower with a purple center and blue-green petals. These form a perfect tri-circle Hidden Mickey.
