Hidden Mickeys at Walt Disney World

Rumor has it that "Hidden Mickeys" were started as in inside joke of the Disney Imagineers. No matter if they were intentional or accidental, there's nothing like spotting one to bring a smile.

There are two types of "Hidden Mickeys." The first section is devoted to the ones that require a bit of detective work to spot. The second section are those "not so hidden Mickeys" that are still fun to find.

This list a by no means all-inclusive, but we thought we'd give you a start on some of our favorites. There are plenty of books and checklists available online for those who want to dig into them further.
