  1. When walking around, we noticed there was a family of snowmen. The parents were taking a picture of the snowkid and he was wearing a pair of Mickey ears on his head. decor

    CONFIRMED: Ana Paula Franciosi 11 DEC 00
  2. In the Double Plunge Tube ride, before you go down the slide, the waiting area is in the shape of Mickey's head. This is the water waiting area where you wait for the green light to go down the slide.
    REPORTED: Mike Heller 29 DEC 96
    The Entrances he is talking about are on the Down Hill Double Dipper "Triple D" and Mogul Mania. These dispatch pools are not in the shape of Mickey. The "ears" are merely areas where the guests can stand to speed up dispatch time.

  3. In Tike's Peak, the kiddie area, there are several little alligators that the kids play on in the water. One of them has a scarf that has snowmen on it underneath his chin. On his left side one of the snowmen is actually a Mickey.

    In the wave pool (Meltaway Bay) there are lifegard lookouts jutting out from the rocks on the sides. Under the first chair on the right as you enter the pool, just below eye level, there's a hidden Mickey. One of the indentations in the rock is shaped like the traditional 3-circle head. It's not that big, but noticable from a few feet away.
    CONFIRMED: Jason Maxwell 20 FEB 98

    The main restaurant is called Lottawatta Lodge. In the main ordering area you'll see a large stone fireplace. Look toward the top of the chimney area and you'll see three perfectly round cobblestones that form our favorite corporate symbol: Mickey Mouse!!

    At the ski lodge, if you look at the chimney made of rocks near the food concessions, about 10 feet up three rocks make up the ears and head.

  6. Inside the merchandise shop (Beach Haus) by the dressing rooms in the ladies swimwear section next to the cast member entrance to the stockroom, there is a light on the wall. It has a very rustic/wilderness design on it. Within the design on this light are several Mickey sillouettes.

  7. On Cross Country Creek, underneath a bridge behind Summet Plummet.
    REPORTED: WDW List
    You can see a Hidden Mickey as you ride on along on Cross Country Creek. Towards the back of the park you travel underneath a stone bridge. At the center of the side of the bridge are three rocks in the shape of Mickey's head and ears.

    This Mickey was found while riding the creek that circles Blizzard Beach. He's on one of the bridges that have large stones on it. Mickey is wearing a sorcerer's hat and is made of stones in the center of the bridge. This was pointed out to me by one of the lifeguards and when I saw it, I wondered how I could have gone past so many times without seeing it!
    CONFIRMED: The Herold Family 21 JUL 98
    This is the hardest one to find and explain. In the back, there is a path that you can take to get from the bottom of Teamboat Springs to Runoff Rapids. Before you cross the bridge over the Creek look on the middle of the bridge and if you look hard enough you will see the hidden Mickey. This one also consists of three rocks. From what I recall it is located right below a triangular rock. In case you are wondering, I worked the CP at Blizzard as a Slide Operator in the spring of '99. LOVED IT! Feel free to email me and tell me if you find them.
    CONFIRMED: Brent Scott 01 MAY 00
    On the lazy river ride that goes around the park you come up to a bridge. Before you go under the bridge look at the side of it. It is made of giant rocks and in one spot the rocks make a hidden Mickey face.

  8. The iron scroll work of signs in front of the dressing rooms.
    REPORTED: Larry Arnett 08 NOV 95
    Indeed, there is one in the metal scrollwork of the restroom sign just before you get to the lockers area. It holds the sign from above...black wrought iron, pretty clear, actually--but wouldn't qualify it as 'Hidden'! decor
    CONFIRMED: technoid 26 MAR 96
  9. It is in the "snow" at the top of Mt. Gushmore, to the right of the start of Teamboat Springs (the family raft ride.) Look to the right and down a little from the start of the ride, you will see a blue outline of Mickey's head.
    REPORTED: William Starks 16 JAN 96
    CONFIRMED: Derek Malan 13 MAY 96
  10. While going up the ski lift, towards the very end of the ride - if you look down at the "mountain" there is a Mickey head in the stones - one large stone and two smaller ones for the ears. This is off to the right looking towards the kids slide area.
    REPORTED: Maryann Sullivan 02 MAY 98

  11. I'm not to sure if this is counted as a Mickey for MGM or Blizzard Beach,but from the top of Mt. Gushmore, look across the wave pool, all the way back by the trees, you can see the Earful Tower!
    REPORTED: Sheriece Beebe 25 MAY 01
  12. Late in the day from Summit Plummit, the sun casts a Mickey head shadow onto Mt. Gushmore.
    REPORTED: Colleen Beaupre 24 JUN 97 pict from hiddenmickeys.org
  13. On the Blizzard Beach blue gator's hip, there is a Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: Danny Reichert 05 JUL 96
    CONFIRMED: angela anderson 01 SEP 96
    The gator (the symbol of the park) has several circles on his hindquarters. The only place the circles looked somewhat like a Mickey (that I saw) was on the map they give you when you enter the park. However, the circles don't touch, so I'm calling it wishful thinking, unless someone can come up with a valid location. See photo.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Melanie Emmons 02 SEP 96
    On the rocks next to Summit plumit, I saw an outline of what is supposedly the gator, but I saw it as the head of Scrooge McDuck.
    WISHFUL THINKING: Dave Hulteen Jr. 15 JUL 97
    The circles on the gator are actually ON the gator that walks around the park like the other characters. It is on the same side as his scarf. You may have to ask him to move his scarf so you can see it. It is there.
    CONFIRMED: Linda Kaye Jonas 17 DEC 98
    The Hidden Mickey on the walk around Ice Gator is gone. They redesigned the costume to make him a little more cuddly. He no longer has it on his side.
    LOST: Linda Kaye Jonas 30 SEP 99
  14. On the tubes for the rides on the side of it by the handles there is a hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: anon 17 JAN 99
  15. There is a hidden Mickey inside Summet Plummet - there is a Mickey drawing of Mickey swimming
    REPORTED: george 28 NOV 98 pict from hiddenmickeys.org
  16. As you fly down Summit Plummet at a speed that feels like 60 miles per hour, you go under the little tunnel. It looks like you are going to go off the ski jump, but you go underneath. Its the world's tallest and fastest water slide! Anyway, in the tunnel, only visible during the day, there is a 2 foot high Mickey doll. He is wearing a ski outfit and is waving at you.

    REPORTED: sonya k. Gilmore 26 AUG 97
    Riding up the Ski Lift, look down to the right. The Ski patrol Training area has 2 short water slides. The entry pool defilitely has the Mouse look.

  18. There is a hidden Mickey on the overpass of a walkway on meltaway bay. as you are going around the passover in the back of the park before you get to the "snow making machine" in the overpass made out of rocks is a Mickey head.
    REPORTED: Brian Fineberg 31 MAY 99
  19. It's not Mickey, but clearly and intentionaly hidden. It's a gator's profile sculpted into the highest rocks directly behind the wavepool. It can be seen best standing on the beach, on the left side of the island, looking across the wavepool.
