Disney's Hidden Mickeys

I love, love, love the Disney parks. Right now we're trying to save up to take the fam back to Florida in the next ~year+.

There are so many fun things about Disneyland and Disney World.

One thing I've had a lot of fun with is the idea of the "Hidden Mickey." For those who don't know, the Disney Cast Members (from the park designers/architects/etc, attraction operators, street sweepers, continuing on to pin designers, movie animators and more) have hidden Mickey heads throughout the parks.
Some are more obvious than others but if you keep your eye open, you'll see them. There are many books and websites dedicated to finding new and elusive Hidden Mickeys.

Over on the Disney Blog this week, they did a post about them along with a cool little video showcasing a few of them.

So, next time you're at a Disney park, see how many you can find.

It's been a few years since I visited a Disney park, but I do remember seeing those mouse ears everywhere.

My favorite is the one that is on a breastplate at the end of Pirates before you go back up the ramp.

Awww, thanks for stopping by my blog and giving your congrats. :)

I've never been to Disneyland, but I can imagine we'll go there one day when kids are in the picture.

I love DISNEY WORLD!!! I've actually rented a beach house for next November (2011) and can't wait to go! We are visiting the theme parks - especially Harry Potter!!!!

This is neat--I have not heard about the hidden Mickeys. I am sure we will make it to one of the parks eventually.

Hi Okie,
I noticed your comment on Persnicketysnark about the Top 100 YA books poll. I had a hand in tallying the results, and was particularly interested in discussing your comments about the treatment of books in series. Rather than indulge in a long-winded explanation in the comments section, I thought to email you (but can't find any email address). If you're interested in discussing this further please contact me at: someonetowritewith at gmail dot com. Thanks.

Cute! I have a love/hate relationship with Disney. There are many things about Disney films and products that disturb me, but I have to admit that Disney has a mastery of the whimsical and a marvelous flair for details!
