  1. The three metallic palm trees that are very futuristic before you get into Space Mountian form a hidden Mickey at I belive 8:00 in the summer.
    REPORTED: Dr. J 19 DEC 98
  2. Every third window of stars while you wait in line has a Mickey constellation, similar to the one in Spaceship Earth.
    REPORTED: Nocturus 05 MAR 95
    CONFIRMED: Jeff Neubeck 11 APR 97
    Not totally easy to see. Look for a partial outline made of stars; the black space in the middle is Mickey's head. And I'm pretty sure they use the same panels for the ceiling as you are leaving, because I saw the same hidden Mickey outline up there too.
    CONFIRMED: Gwendel 08 DEC 98
    On Space Mountain as you are in line on the right side of the pathway is a series of windows that have stars in them. If you look closely in some of these windows there are some orange looking stars that form a hidden Mickey.

  3. One of the outer space scenes along the line has an astronaut working on a rotating "cog." My girlfriend pointed out a Mickey-head at the center of the cog. It was very small, but was indeed there!
    REPORTED: W. Neale Lanigan 24 JUN 96
    The cog has a ball in the center and if you look quick, the shadows may play a trick on you (especially with the distorted glass). There is nothing to make the ears.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Jeff Carter & Kristy Miskoff 24 JAN 98
  4. During one of the news reports in the video shown in the queue area, a satellite comes toward the camera and it is a three-dimensional, fully-detailed Mickey head.

    "Slater" from "Saved by the Bell," plays the Space Mountain Mission Controller and is in the pre-show movie on several occations. During one of his appearances, a round satellite appears on the screen behind him and as it gets closer, ears pop out as well a nose. By the time the clip is over, nearly every detail of Mickey's face can be clearly seen.

    This is probably the most elaborate animated HM I've seen so far.
    CONFIRMED: Gwendel 09 DEC 98
  5. In the video with Mario Lopez you see while in line, a building in the background forms a tri-circle Mickey. The shot falls away from the camera very quickly, so you have to pay close attention.

    While the narrator is talking, the scene behind him zooms out in an Aerial shot of the outside of the Space Mountain building. As the view gets higher, the building briefly becomes a hidden Mickey.

  6. In the "Space Olympics" segment of the video, the planets to make up the olympic logo are arranged quite suspiciuosly to form several Mickey heads.
    REPORTED: Dan 09 JUN 96
    If you really stretched it, you could say they are Mickey heads, but it's really just the Olympic logo. Oh, and there's seven circles, not the five in the current logo.
    WISHFUL THINKING: John & Melanie Emmons 28 AUG 96
  7. During the fashion show part of the video, there is a totem pole-like thing on the left of the screen. This has a Mickey face hidden within it.
    REPORTED: Xris Albers 26 MAY 95
    I counted six different Hidden Mickeys in the show.
    CONFIRMED: Sean Mueller 18 NOV 95 pict from
  8. In the pre-ride videos, there is a scene with, I believe, a "Venusian Peace Accord" or something similar. The aliens in this old footage have perfectly round eyes, and at the end of the scene, the eyes turn from white to black, forming the ears of a hidden Mickey. I could swear that just as the scene fades out, a black circle is superimposed over the alien's face to make the hidden Mickey head complete.
    REPORTED: Michael Mormino 16 MAR 99
  9. At the beginning and end of the film loop, there is a background filled with stars, but the end background has a constellation of the outline of Mickeys head. It is very quick, you may miss it if you blink. How do I know? My brother is the one who produced the film and personally added the Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: Marie 12 JAN 96 White Cookie Background 120x60
  10. You can see a Hidden Mickey from either of the loading bays or the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Look for the big meteor, followed by a comet, then followed by the three "chocolate chip cookie" looking meteors that spin and briefly form a Mickey head when they meet for a short second.
    REPORTED: Brian Hal 20 NOV 93
    CONFIRMED: Gary Eckhardt 17 FEB 94
    CONFIRMED: Graham Allan 02 OCT 94
    CONFIRMED: scott lawson 15 NOV 96
    The meteors never touch and are 3 different sizes
    WISHFUL THINKING: Jeff Carter & Kristy Miskoff 24 JAN 98
    This one may be a strech but I'm pretty sure it the real thing, when standing in line for Space Mountain right before you get on the ride there are atroids flying overhead there is one big one and a few seconds later 3 more ateroids fly over and when the come together they look like Mickey.
    CONFIRMED: Chris Heerdt 04 OCT 00
  11. As you first take off, when you round the first corner before you go up the first hill for the first drop, directly ahead is a set of mirrors. in the mirrors, with the combination of the moving lights, the roller coaster track, and the tunnel, the image in the mirrors makes the shape of Mickey's head and ears.
    REPORTED: beth and des 29 MAR 00
  12. One of the "chocolate chip cookie" meteors actually forms a second Hidden Mickey. Inside the biggest of the three cookies are three chocolate chips (one big, two small) that form his head.
    REPORTED: stuart bowers 13 MAR 95
    CONFIRMED: Morna Brown 11 JAN 97
    My friend and I were fascinated by the ceiling with the moving stars and asteroids at the loading station of Space Mountain. She noticed a "chocolate chip" looking thing and we pointed it out to my boyfriend. He watched for it and when he saw it he said it looked like a Mickey head. My friend and I watched for it the next time we rode the ride and sure enough it looked exactly like a Mickey head.

  13. At the unloading station. The poster with the planet earth. The clouds form a Fantasia Mickey.
    REPORTED: Batwave 26 APR 00
  14. Some of the rocks in the first show scene on the speed-ramp form Mickey heads.
    REPORTED: Batwave 26 APR 00
  15. At exit of Space Mountain one of the lower panels to the left of the robot has an "orbit" pattern display. The planet and the two round orbit/intersect diagrams form a Mickey.
    REPORTED: Neal Firth and Family 06 APR 96
  16. I was on the peoplemover and we rode right throught while the lights were on. As we rode by, I glimpsed around at the beautiful ride and noticed that shadows from three different parts of the ride were lined up to make a perfect Mickey.
    REPORTED: dave roberson 27 JAN 97
  17. There is a definite Hidden Mickey in the star patterns on the ceiling where you exit the ride.
    REPORTED: Emilio J Power 23 APR 97
  18. When you are leaving on the moving walkway you will see three domes above you. The third dome has a Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: Patrick Family 05 JAN 98
    I use to work at Space Mountain and at the end of the ride there is a speedramp that you step on. Above the speed ramp are windows (domes) with stars in them. The Third to last and the second to last windows have hidden Mickey's in them. If you look closely you will notice that the stars do infact outline a Mickey head. The Mickey itself is black with the stars making the outline of it.
    CONFIRMED: anon 18 MAY 00 pict from
  19. It is on the moving walkway where you see the robotic dog. There is a small, black "Mickey" on his neck right under his collar.
    REPORTED: Mica, Petie, and Roz 19 AUG 97
    CONFIRMED: Terry Tribble 22 AUG 97
    As you leave you step on the speedramp (the moving walkway) that takes you past various "Federal Express" scenes depicting how Federal Express will operate in the future. It shows how a team of archaeologists uncover a set of Dinosaur bones and how they beam them back to the lab for analyses. Anyway, in the final scene where the narrator finishes saying...."and their precious cargo.....warning...warning...container one received" there is a hidden Mickey.
    CONFIRMED: anon 25 AUG 97
    While leaving on the conveyor belt, the "dog" scene, the dog's collar has a Hidden Mickey on it. This is thanks to a summer employee named Steve from Los Angeles, California. I got stuck on Space Mountain and Steve came and talked with my shuttle as we were stuck. I asked him about Hidden Mickeys and he said he made one for Space Mountain. I just would like to say Steve is the man and congratulate him on an awesome hidden Mickey!
    CONFIRMED: Benjamin Fairchild 03 SEP 97
    I was in the same car that Bejamin Fairchild was in when the Space Mountain broke down, and while we were waiting for the ride to start back up, an employee came over and talked to us. His name is Steve from Los Angelas and he told us about the dog's collar having the Hidden Mickey.

    It looks like a Mickey-shaped checker!
    CONFIRMED: Gwendel 09 DEC 98
    As you go down the moving ramp to exit the attraction there are two robots, a person and a dog. On the dog, where a licence would be is a hidden Mickey.
    CONFIRMED: Heather 25 JAN 00
    The Mickey on the dog collar is gone. We were there mid March, and could still see the glue marks where it was. I pointed it out to the CM working fastpass because I though somebody stole it!! He told me that the CM's moved it to another location in that scene. Judging by the glue marks that they left after tearing this off, I think that this move is "unofficial." I'll bet that when Imagineering finds out somebody is going to be upset!!
    LOST: Chuck 30 MAR 01
    CONFIRMED: K. Francis 22 APR 01
    I had the luck to be working at Space Mountain the day after maintance had decided to move the hidden Mickey from the dogs collar. True, it does still reside somewhere in the same scene, only now, it is at the beginning of the scene. Right before you get on the speedramp (moving sidewalk) there is a teleportation tube to your left. The hidden Mickey now resides in the very bottom of that tube, in plain view, sitting on the floor. It is very hard to see, because it just looks like a little rock, but we were very curious where the dog's Mickey went to, so we opened the tube (from the back) and determined that it was the very same Mickey (it had half the glue on the back of it). Consequently, it is the only officially recognized Mickey at Space Mountain, even thouogh the window Mickeys (the star outline ones on the exit ramp) are very visible.
    UPDATE: DisneyCM00-01 23 JUN 01
  20. On Space Mountain after exiting the ride, you step onto a people mover. At the very end of the people mover where you step onto a metal plate and the belt goes underneath, there is a hidden Mickey engraved into the plate on the right-hand side.
    REPORTED: Josh Thompson 27 JUN 02
  21. I was on the Keys to the Kingdom tour and our TTA vehicle stopped inside Space Mountain when it was down. There is a big hidden Mickey on the wall about halfway through only visible in the light!
