    I know the Casting building has been confirmed several times over, but pict from hiddenmickeys.org I want to tell everyone that they should really check out the building if they have a chance, starting with the handles on the front door. Inside there are several murals and a lot of amusing tromp l'oeill paintings. It's not exactly a tourist destination, but no one bothered us when we took pictures of the murals.

Discovery Island

Take a look at Discovery Island from space.

  1. My son and I were parasailing. We used the service of Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre from the Contemporary Resort. In the water, near the dock of Discovery Island, my son spotted a Hidden Mickey.

Vista Way & The Commons

  1. The hidden Mickey that I saw, and had one of my roommates confirm I wasn't crazy, was in the wall of the living room, Price Management's maintenance crew paint the appartments in between every group that comes and goes, and they paint the walls flat white, with a semi-glossy Mickey on the wall in each living room. It's easy to see if the light is right. I saw it the first few day I was there.

All Around The World

  1. When exiting the Magic Kingdom on one of the roads out there is a sign with two bodies of water over a circle with the Disney logo that makes a hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: anon 12 DEC 99
  2. On the way out of the park, heading from the Epcot parking lot towards I4 and 192, I saw a large Billboard for Disney Members with a "hidden Mickey." I don't remember the exact wording since I was driving and alone at the time, but it was something like "Disney Club Members are Going Places!" The billboard shows Mickey skiing in mountains on one side, and some beach scene on the right, etc. On the left side , above and to the left of Mickey skiing is a cloud formation that forms a rather obvious Mickey. Given its a cloud, I know its not just Decor. I thought this may have been reported already, but I couldn't find it on the pages.

    They have three characters on each side Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in medium size blocks. Well, towards the bottom of the bag theres a graphic of Cinderella's castle surrounded by stars.

    On the path from the Test Track in Future World to Mexico in the World Showcase (After you are across the bridge), there is a Hidden Mickey embedded in the concrete. It is a survey marker (metal). You'll see it if you walk about in the middle of the pathway looking down. There may be other markers in Epcot and the other parks, but this is the only one we found.

    CONFIRMED: Francis Moore 23 DEC 97
    The Hidden Mickey survey marker is called a bench mark, and they're everywhere in Disney World. Surveyors use these to locate buildings and structures. My surveyor husband and a bunch of his work buddies "collect" pictures of these as sort of a Hidden Mickey surveyor subset!

    We just celebrated my daughter Audra's 5th birthday at Disney World. We were walking back from an ice cream stand in Toontown Fair, and she suddenly stopped and yelled "HIDDEN MICKEY!!!!!!" which drew a lot of attention, and smiles, and a few laughs. For a 5 year old, seeing the not-so-hidden Mickey on the manhole cover was a great find!

    To see this Hidden Mickey you'll have to look down. The familiar image of the mouse's head and ears appears on these small round metal plates that are set in the ground by utility companies. It think they are in all three Disney parks in Orlando.

    When you go to eat at the Coral Reef, the butter that you get with your meal is in the shape of Mickey. This does cause a small problem because you have to cut Mickey in order to butter your bread.

    I would like to confirm that the butter at King Stefan's Banquet Hall is a Hidden Mickey.

The die cut of the sticker is a profile of Mickey's head. The curved cuts around the fireworks are his ears and the extra little bump around the printed Mickey is his nose.

  18. Some of the road signs on the Walt Disney World highways feature Hidden Mickeys, or least hidden, one-eared Mickeys. I don't think they're all like that. However, the bus from Fort Wilderness to Disney Studios (and other buses to Disney from the Transportation Center area as well, I believe) pass at least one such sign after leaving the Transportation Center for the long back road that passes the Fort Wilderness main entrance.

  22. Some of the Disney busses used for transportation on the WDW property have instrument clusters that form a hidden Mickey. The busses are GMC models with the 6 instruments to the right of the driver. The large air pressure guage forms the head and the oil pressure and water temperature guages form the ears. Due to the positioning of the guages, Mickey is looking up to the left. The GMC busses that only have the three instrument cluster do not exhibit this hidden Mickey.

  23. I just finished up as a CP Cast Member (early) and at Vista Way, I did notice this in more than one apartment, when they painted the walls, there was a patch of wall that had no new paint on it, shaped just like a Mickey. In both apartments I noticed this it was left of the livingroom window. //matt
