Biggest Hidden Mickey


When the Disney-MGM Studios opened, the Imagineers created one of the world's largest Hidden Mickeys of all time. This was a true Hidden Mickey, since you could only see it from high above.

Take a close look at the Disney-MGM park map above. See the white and light gray space in the middle?

Now let's flip it around and zoom in a little. See the face a little more clearly?


I found the following shot on the web a few years ago and, sadly, I can't remember where I got it. It is a great shot of how the Mickey used to look before the addition of the Sorcerer's Hat and the expansion of Sunset Boulevard.


I'm always preaching to look up, but sometimes it pays to look down!

I'm glad!

I love the rich details--even the ones that are long gone--that make up the amazing Disney theme park experience.

WOW! That is absolutely amazing. I kept looking at the first map and couldn't see it. Then I looked at the third image and BAM, there it was. That is so cool. Thanks :)
