    My family loves "noticing the details". My daughter has albinism and daytime adventures indoors are alot of fun for us. Tell me one of your favorite "Finds" that we could go looking for. My son is 13 and daughter is 11.


    I have a long list of fun details to experience at WDW, but the one that comes to mind for your daughter would be:  looking for Hidden Mickeys (HMs). Many (not all) HMs are indoors, and they are truly one of the hidden gems at Walt Disney World.

    On a recent visit to Animal Kingdom I spent some time hunting for HMs, and I found that the best way to do it was to ask Cast Members in the ride queues if they are aware of any nearby HMs. Not only can they usually help you out, but you will likely have some interesting conversations with them as well. Most Cast Members love to chat with visitors who notice the details!

    If you want some helpful hints about finding HMs, I suggest you look into purchasing Steven Barrett’s “Hidden Mickeys – A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secret.” You can find it in many of the WDW stores, as well as at most book retailers.

    Happy HM hunting!
