audio link Fun Facts

  1. There are two Hidden Mickeys, one to the left the rock that Mickey is standing on in the first generation pictures for Fantasmic! This picture can still be found on the soundtrack and on the board outside the entrance. It's not fully stuck together like many of them but it is there. And the second one is the watertower in the upper left part of the same picture.

  2. The entire mountain of Fantasmic! is said to be Mickey's Sorcerer hat, with the two ear represented in seemingly pointless rock formations on either side. I didn't discover it right off, but I overheard cast members referring to these rock formations as "ears" and made the connection.
    REPORTED: anon 24 MAR 99
    It's true! The Fantasmic! stage is really the Mickey sorcerer hat. Plus there are a few other smaller sorcerer hats on the stage
    CONFIRMED: aladdin 02 OCT 99
    The stage is shaped like a mountain, not a hat. The "ears" are a nickname for the side stage areas. In theater, we usually call them wings but ears seemed more 'Disney'. In fact, the ears that we are referring to are not visible to the audience at all. Its the area behind the rocks, not the rocks themselves.

  3. On a recent trip, I found an acceptionally large Mickey at the Fantasmic! show at the Studios. It is right smack-dab in the middle of the mountain. There is a large, circular crack in it, with 2 smaller cracks on top. Even though it' big, it's still hard to miss. ;)

  4. There is a hidden Mickey in the mesh covering on the stage of Fantasmic! on the left side. You can see it good from the Mickey section of the seating area.
    REPORTED: aladdin 06 SEP 99
    The patterns in the mesh are random. That's the way they came from the camoflage manufacturer. Any shapes are coincidental.
    WISHFUL THINKING: anon 10 JUL 00
  5. In the very beginning of the show, when the smoke and lights first appear (before Mickey pops up), there is a hidden Mickey that floats through the smoke. It is very hard to spot, the only reason I know it's there is because I worked there with a retired imagineer who showed us exactly where and when it appeared. We still cannot find it without him pointing it out for us, but it definitely is there. If you ever goand want to see it, ask for a cast member named Jesse, and he may show it to you if you're lucky (we had to beg).
    REPORTED: Jennifer 01 NOV 99
    This is not only wishful thinking, it is a technical impossibility. There is no way to control the smoke movement in an outdoor venue, especially in such a way that would form shapes. Additionally, the lighting is simply 6 non-patterned white beams.

  6. During the very first performance October 9,1998 (actually a dress rehersal for passholders) of Fantasamic--a new special effect spectacular--several Mickeys appear during the bubble sequence on the giant mist screen. As the large and smaller bubbles rose to the top of the screen, they joined and formed Mickeys.

  7. In the candelabras on the Snow White float, I discovered these Hidden Mickeys while looking at our 2000 Disney Vacation album with my mom today.

  8. There are "ears" silhouettes during the Fantasmic show. Watch for when the bubbles are scrolling by (on the water screen) with pictures of characters in them. There will be some of the bubbles that go by in a cluster of three. It is the placement of the bubbles that make an "ears." Watch close, but I think that they qualify!!
    REPORTED: Travis Skinner 16 NOV 99
    At the beginning of the sequence where Jimminy Cricket is in the water three bubbles come up from the bottom on the left side and form a Mickey just before dissapearing.

  9. There is a hidden Mickey formed by the tubes where the water comes out. This is in the big lake, but definately visible, due to it's shallowness, and cannot be easily mistaken.
    REPORTED: Ryan 18 OCT 98
    The tubes under the lake are gas lines for the lake of fire. They are rarely visible anymore due to algae growth but there is a Mickey shape hidden in them all the way on the right side of the lake (facing the stage).
