The entire Studios itself was a big Mickey up-side-down except
he's more of a "Picasso Mickey" now that they built Sunset.

If you are standing on the Earful Tower you will see that the Studios is in the shape of Mickey. I saw it from the hot air balloon ride flying over the studios.

The largest official Hidden Mickey can be viewed from the air looking down at MGM Studios. It turns out that the whole park is designed to look like Mickey. Don't have a plane? It's shown of "Inside Out" sometimes and also on the WDW Explorere CD-ROM.

While waiting to exit the backstage Studio Tour ride at MGM Studios, our tour guide pointed out that if you turn the studio map upside down, you will see a hidden Mickey. It's actually the entire park. His face is at the Great Movie Ride and you'll be able to find it from there. It's harder to see now that they have added so many attractions, but if you look hard enough you'll find it.

When you go to MGM Studios, make sure to get a map of the park. Turn the map upside down. There is a hidden Mickey face near the middle of the page. If you go to that area of the park, the face is actually printed on the ground just like the map.

As you walk in to the Disney MGM studios pick up a map. As you unfold it turn it upside down and look really close!!!! If you look close enough you find the "said to be" biggest hidden mickey! In front of the Chinese Theater is mickey's eyes and nose. Echo lake is his right ear and for his left ear is really hard to find but if you look closely there is a little piece of land said to be his left ear. If you find this hidden mickey you have found the largest hidden mickey of all!!!

There's a water tower with ears, Earful Tower, on the way to Disney World once you're on
the road leading to Disney World's Disney Studios. This is actually on the Studios' property but you can see it directly from the road its so big.
You can't miss it.

REPORTED: Andrew Cranford 23 FEB 97
There is a long row of palm trees at the side of MGM Studios.
If you look very closely you will see that every other tree, about
4 feet up, has a Hidden Mickey on it. When my parents looked they
didn't see it!
REPORTED: Marc Epstein 08 JUL 96
There is a hidden Mickey that guests can never find. I'm a cast member of the Disney/MGM Studios and here's where I found it. The backstage road used by the Hollywood Maintainence workers (streetmosphere) that runs between Oscar's (Hollywood Blvd) and the Theater of the Stars (Sunset Blvd) is where it is. I won't give specific directions due to the fact that guests aren't allowed there. But there is a hidden Mickey on the ground behind the Once Upon a Time building. It's an oil stain from their car. Roughly three inches long. It is there.
REPORTED: anon 15 SEP 97
Guests are now allowed to travel on the backstage road between Oscar's and the Theater of the Stars. If you eat dinner at the Brown Derby, Hollywood and Vine or Mama Melrose, you get priority seating to Fantsmic. You take this route to get to your special seats at the Fantasmic Theater.

Sorcery in the Sky Fireworks
While watching the Disney fireworks display from the Boardwalk, I took a picture of what appears to be Mickey. There were three bursts of white circles, two above for the ears and one right under for his head. I didn,t notice this at the time but it seems very clear in my photo.
REPORTED: Tom Aber 25 MAR 97
As a cast member, and a pyrotechnician, I have in fact seen fireworks in the shape of Mickey Mouse. It is done most of the time using 3 shells - one larger and two smaller for the ears. There are even some single shell Mickey Mouse heads and what's even more amazing is that they have even spelled out "MICKEY MOUSE" in the sky with fireworks!!
