  1. A bulletin board at the entrance to the 2001 Osbourne Family Spectacle of Lights at MGM-Studios claims to have 43 hidden Mickeys and one hidden Minnie. I was there this past week and the Hidden Minnie was found in the "garden" of Mickey ears that is right after the toy soldiers. One set of the Mickey ears lights up with a red bow on top of it. That was the only hidden Minnie I found but watch quickly or you'll miss the bow.

  2. This year there are over 100 Mickeys hidden in the Osborne Family Christmas Light Display. One of the best ones is the third puff of smoke coming from the christmas train's engine about 3/4 of the way through.

  3. This Mickey can only be seen during the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights. The clock tower just at the entrance to the show is, of course, covered in lights. However, on one and only one side (the back side), instead of having a clock, is has Mickey ears. It is easiest to see it by simply going to the spectacle and looking over your shoulder and seeing it. Note that simply passing by on Residential street may not be enoguh to see it. The lights must be on.

    The clock tower on the back side, instead of a clock face, is a hidden Mickey. This is being sent from Inoventions at Epcot.

  4. A holiday Hidden Mickey is in the Osborne Family Christmas Light Display. As you walk down Residential Street, the back lot street behind New York Street, the last display on the right is all red lights. At the bottom of the display closest to the road there is a clear Mickey at the bottom of the lights.

    There are multiple hidden Mickeys in the Osborne light display at Disney Studios. Among those I saw were a Mickey in the middle of the large red light tree on top of a house and one of the soldiers at the end of the light show has as his face a Mickey.

    There is a brand new Hidden Mickey in this year's Spectical of Lights display. I saw them building it. As you walk down Residential Street the last large tree of lights on your left has a light string blinking in a different order and seperately rigged than the rest that is at the bottom and red. It is a definately on purpose Hidden Mickey.

    I wanted you all to know that a Cast Member told me that there were 49 Hidden Mickeys in the display. I was only able to find 45 of them.

    We confirm the use of the Osborne lights at Christmas time. We had the wonderful opportunity to experience the lights first hand. The first time we saw it (1995), there was only one set of lights shaped like Mickey - near the end of the display. In 1996, there were Mickey shapes everywhere! Totally incredible!!

  5. When leaving the Osborne Family exibit, one of the last displays is a train. The train is puffing smoke. There are three puffs of smoke that alternate on and off, if you look at the second puff of smoke it is in the shape of Mickey's head.
    CONFIRMED: Shelly Elkins 10 JAN 98
    There is a train that blows smoke from its smokestack. One of the smokepuffs in the middle forms a perfect Mickey (close to a profile, but almost dead on).

    My wife and I were at the MGM Studios on Thursday and while we were walking through the Osborne family Christmas lights, we noticed a very obvious hidden Mickey. When you make the turn and head back around the area of the tram pick up for Catastrophe Canyon there is a lighted train on your right hand side. The lights are in motion. Even the smoke coming out of the engine. It is either the second or third puff of smoke that is our favorite pal.
