    My DH and i love searching for hidden mickeys. Without giving away the exact details (we would like to have to search for them at least a little) what are the top 5 best/most creative hidden mickeys in WDW that we shouldn't miss?

    Fun question!

    If you don't have it already, I recommend Steve Barrett's wonderful book "Hidden Mickey: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets." This is available in many WDW stores in the WDW, as well as through many regular bookstores and Steve also has a great website at They even have an iPhone app!

    Every Disney lover I know has their own set of favorite Hidden Mickeys. I wouldn't presume to say which are the best, because each is creative and personal in its own way. But I will tell you some that I find particularly noteworthy or fun.

    1. Perhaps the most famous Hidden Mickey is in the dining room scene of the Haunted Mansion ride. Hint: take a good look at the table.

    2. My husband loves the Hidden Mickey in the golf scene of Epcot's Soarin'. Hint: Keep your eye on the ball.

    3. The Living with the Land ride at Epcot features several Hidden Mickeys. Hint: The shrimp have a secret.

    4. The Grand Marshall car in the Magic Kingdom daytime parade includes lots of Hidden Mickeys. Hint: Don't get "tired" looking for them.

    5. The Muppet attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios includes a Hidden Mickey in the preshow. Hint: It's only a test.

    6. In the Small World attraction at the Magic Kingdom there are large black Hidden Mickeys. Hint: I hope the giraffes don't eat them.

    7. There are a number of Hidden Mickeys in the Expedition Everest queue at the Animal Kingdom. Hint: Don't run into a rough patch while searching.

    8. The Flights of Wonder stage at the Animal Kingdom has some. Hint: You don't have to get hit by a brick to find them.

    9. The D-Street store at Downtown Disney is the home of a Hidden Mickey. Hint: You have to keep your head in the clouds.

    10. At the Grand Floridian, Hidden Mickeys are everywhere. Hint: You practically step all over them.

    Happy hunting!
