  1. I am 6 yrs old and I found a hidden Mickey on the bedspreads in the Fort Wilderness cabins my family stayed in!
    REPORTED: Nicole Engle 09 MAY 98
    It is camoflaged in the pansies.
    CONFIRMED: Michael Minuth 14 JUL 98
    Our Fort Wilderness cabin had two kinds of bedspreads. One had a patchwork quilt design, with a definite hidden Mickey in the the center of a flower on one of the patches. The other bedspread had pansies on it, and three of us thought one of the pansies was a definite hidden Mickey (and one thought it was just a pansy).

The outside contracted tile worker took the liberty and WDI said it was obvious and tacky. They came in that following evening and removed the tile and replaced it with three new tiles. You can still see where it was removed though.
