Hidden Mickey….

In case you were wondering about this whole Hidden Mickey  thing….read on…it is a representation of Mickey Mouse that has been inserted subtly into the design of a ride, attraction, or other location in a Disney theme park or elsewhere on Disney properties. The most common Hidden Mickey is a formation of three circles that may be perceived as the silhouette of the head and ears of Mickey Mouse.

A true Hidden Mickey is one that is not meant to be seen immediately, and is usually placed purposefully by a Disney Imagineer or artist in a context that would not normally contain Mickey Mouse. When the shape of Mickey Mouse is used as an obvious part of the design, such as Mickey ears on the top of lampposts, it is considered decorative and sometimes referred to as a “decor Mickey.” Additionally, formations of the iconic head and ears have been spotted in nature or even on animals, but they are also not Hidden Mickeys.

Although approximately 1000 Hidden Mickeys have been recorded, it is not known how many are really out there!

This is the smallest Hidden Mickey at the Magic Kingdom…….(so I’ve been told).  My oldest son found it rather quickly!  He is really good at finding them!  (It is right at the tip of the finger).

So if you want to start looking get the book that’s shown above and it will give you clues to where to find them! Have FUN!
