  30. My friend and I noticed one of the Cast Members cleaning windows. She would spray one large circle and two smaller circles forming a Mickey Mouse head prior to wiping the windows clean. She also cleaned the tables that way.
    REPORTED: anon 08 FEB 97
    Hi, I just wanted to congratulate the guest who caught me at Dixie Landings making Hidden Mickey's on the windows as I cleaned them. I am a Cast-member and have been leaving these "Hidden, and quicky gone Mickey's " for three years now.
    CONFIRMED: anon 28 DEC 97
    My favorite hidden Mickey was one that existed for a mere 5 seconds or so and was only seen by myself and my family. As were walking up to the food court at Dixie Landings there was a cast member inside the door cleaning the windows. As we approached she took her can of aerosol foam window cleaner and sprayed the familiar three circles on the window. Within seconds she had taken her cloth and wiped the Mickey clean as she finished up the window. As we walked by in utter disbelief with our jaws hanging she gave the slightest of smiles and went about her business as if this was a commomn occurence. Though this Mickey existed for only a few seconds it is one I will always remember.
  31. While at the Dixie Landings, we noticed that the flower pots along the pathways were all placed in groups of three to form a Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: glen and julie 18 JUN 97
  32. It is most likely a serendipitous Mickey but if you ever stay at Dixie and happen to stop in the Colonel's Cotton Mill and stand near their pizza shop, looking out the windows there you can clearly see the trees have formed a Mickey head, it is obviously not intended to be there, but is a rather interesting natural occurrence.
    REPORTED: Neesa 28 DEC 97
  33. If you stop by Colonel's Cotton Mill's Burger shop, advertisements for the breakfasts show a Mickey Pancake for the kids. decor
    REPORTED: Neesa 28 DEC 97
    I can confirm the Mickey head child's pancakes at Dixie Landings. (I used to make them for my kids for many years before sighting them at Disney World.)
    CONFIRMED: Robert J. Gavagaqn 20 JUL 98
  34. This may sound strange, but, if you ever take a close look at the toilet paper fixture in the rooms, with a full roll of toilet paper in it, it forms a hidden Mickey. Stand over the fixture and look down. The roll forms the head, and the two large silver disks that attach the fixture to the wall form the ears. Trust me, its there, my husband noticed it also.
    REPORTED: Lyndsay Tatro-Archambault 24 OCT 98
  35. I have just stayed in the Dixie Landings resort. In room 2434, when you walk into the bathroom, look down to your right and you will see a hidden Mickey in the tiles. It is a square Mickey, but it is plain to see.
