Disney’s Hollywood Studios provides guests with a glimpse of Hollywood! Enjoy learning how big action stunts are pulled off safely Indiana Jones style, travel into The Twilight Zone, join the “force” of the Star Wars universe, and be shrunken down to the size of a toy. With so much to do and see on a day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests love spending their time exploring the park and also finding Hidden Mickeys. Hidden Mickeys can be found everywhere throughout Walt Disney World and can feature Mickey or another Disney character. There are plenty of Hidden Mickeys to spot in the park, and guests love seeing who can find the most. We just can’t wait to see what Hidden Mickey’s are to come in the Toy Story and Star Wars lands! Here are the seven best Hidden Mickeys in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
7. Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano
A great place to enjoy a full service meal while in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano. Serving up traditional Italian cuisine in a Hollywood meets Italy setting, guests love stopping by and enjoying the unique atmosphere. When first entering into the restaurant, guests can wait to be seated in an area that features a figure of a Dalmatian. Those who look closely at his spots can find a classic Hidden Mickey.
6. Star Tours – The Adventure Continues
Guests who enjoy Star Tours – The Adventure Continues become members of the Rebel Alliance after finding out that there is a Rebel spy on board their Star Tours flight. While moving through the queue of the attraction guests pass through a room that is full of mechanical parts for droids. Overhead there is a screen featuring the silhouettes of people and recognizable Star Wars characters behind it. Every so often, guests who are looking at the screen will notice R2D2 rolling past wearing some iconic headgear that makes him look like a Hidden Mickey.
5. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
One of the most thrilling attractions in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror which brings guests into the abandoned Hollywood Tower Hotel where five guests disappeared one night long ago. Guests who board the service elevator find themselves repeating history and also heading directly to The Twilight Zone. Before boarding their elevators, guests watch a preshow video in the library explaining the journey that is to come. In the video there is a little girl who was one of the victims that disappeared and guests who look closely will notice that she is holding a vintage 1930s Mickey Mouse plush doll.
4. Stage 1 Company Store
Located near Muppet Vision 3D is the Stage 1 Company Store which has been decorated by the crazy Muppets. With a vibrant exterior featuring interesting paint combinations, bright colors, and odd lines it is no wonder that the Muppets might have made a bit of a mess while decorating. Guests who enter into one of the store’s double doors will notice a yellow paint splatter on the ground, part of which forms a classic Hidden Mickey.
3. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Guests who are brave enough to board the service elevator on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror find themselves at the mercy of the tower moving through The Twilight Zone and freefalling to escape. Just before entering into the dark elevator shaft where the drop occurs, guests approach a series of lights which come together in a swirl and meet at the center of the pathway. Just before converging and disappearing, the lights form a split second Hidden Mickey.
2. Muppet Vision 3D
A great attraction for guests to visit is Muppet Vision 3D which takes guests into the Muppet’s laboratories where they created the technology to capture the spirit of 3D. Along the way there are plenty of corny jokes and gags, and the finale of the show culminates with part of the theater being blown away! During the last few moments of the show, Kermit can be seen approaching the crowd on the back of a firetruck. Guests who look behind him can spot a balloon in the background which features a classic Hidden Mickey.
1. The Voyage of the Little Mermaid
One of the most popular live performances in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is The Voyage of the Little Mermaid where guests can watch a retelling of the classic tale through puppets, live action, special effects, and animation. While in the room leading into the theater guests can enjoy various nautical themed props including one that has a Hidden Mickey. On the left hand wall of the preshow area, guests can spot a large world map which comes together to form a Hidden Mickey.
