I have caught myself discovering unconventional Hidden Mickeys over and over again at various non-Disney locales. I’ve even noticed my daughter pointing them out to me as well. It’s just a part of that Disney Magic that I carry everywhere with me. I just can’t help myself! “I See Hidden Mickeys”, (I am using the voice of Hailey Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense)
Which brings me to my next point and the purpose of this blog post. I scrolled down midway through his main page and saw of all things… a Hidden Mickey! His site is not a Disney site mind you… but there, in all its glory, under the heading “Plucky Plums from the Divas” was a classic hidden mickey! This…. people…is how my mind works! Many years of living the Disney Lifestyle has conditioned my brain into seeing what the average reader, and probably Scott himself when creating this post, did not see. Three perfectly positioned purple plums placed just so… (say that three times fast!)
Today, the Hidden Mickey has taken on many forms: the classic tri-circle head with ears, such as the in Disneyland Toontown, at Walt Disney World's All Star Music Resort or the on The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter in the Magic Kingdom; a silhouette or profile of the loveable Mouse; an actual animated face with features, such as Mickey appearing in the rock concert scene in ; his full figure in either shadow form, silhouette, or detailed drawing, for instance, the in Disneyland's Frontierland and the "" in the Body Wars mural in Epcot; a Mickeyesque feature such as one of his white gloves or his clumpy yellow shoes,such as in the in Disney Studio's The Great Movie Ride and the in Tummy Trouble; his initials, such as in in Disneyland's Indiana Jones; a three-dimensional Mickey such as a stuffed doll hidden within a Disney amusement park ride or movie, such as the in the Tower of Terror at the Disney Studios or even a pair of Mouse ears on someone or something else of Mickey where it isn't normally expected, such as the Viking in the Maelstrom's in Epcot.
