Lights, Camera, Action! A day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is filled with amazing sights, sounds, and tastes! From a plummet down to the bottom floor of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror to a thrilling ride through the galaxy on Star Tours, or a spectacular showing of Fantasmic! fireworks, there is so much to do and see. Toy Story Land adds an entirely new dimension of fun, giving guests the opportunity to zip around on the Slinky Dog Dash, get dizzy on the Alien Swirling Saucers, or have some fun with the toys in Toy Story Mania. There are even more adventures on the horizon with the impressive Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway coming in 2019. If you’re ready for a new sort of adventure (or if you can’t get that Fastpass!) try your hand at spotting the Hidden Mickeys throughout the park. It might be a silhouette of Mickey’s head and ears or a full image of Mickey, and some are more obvious than others. Keep a sharp eye out for the Hidden Mickeys creatively scattered all over the park. See if you can find some of my favorite ones!
1. Star Tours-The Adventures Continue
As you approach the main hanger, find C-3PO in front of the Star Speeder. Look at the monitor to find a classic Hidden Mickey formed by two circles and a larger half-circle.
2. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
Join everyone in the preshow area and take a look at the floor in front of the sound board. A Hidden Mickey is made up of wire coils. Before you board your limo for a fast ride, check out the Hidden Mickey on the license plate on the back of the vehicle.
3. Voyage of the Little Mermaid
A favorite among guests young and old, this attraction includes one of my favorite Hidden Mickeys. You can’t escape the impressive image of Ursula outside of the building, and one of the bubbles above her hand forms a classic Hidden Mickey. Enter the lobby and look at the artwork and pictures on the walls. A large map of the world hides a Hidden Mickey as well.
4. Mama Melrose’s Italian Ristorante
Make it a priority to stop here for a tasty meal in the ambiance of a charming Italian eatery. When you step inside, look for the Dalmatian statue. There is a Hidden Mickey on its right shoulder, cleverly disguised as a spot.
5. Slinky Dog Dash
When you’re waiting to board this cute coaster in the newly opened Toy Story Land, check out the clouds in Andy’s crayon art on the back wall. Isn’t this a great spot to place a Hidden Mickey?
6. Muppet Vision 3D
The silly adventures of Kermit, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the gang will always make guests laugh, no matter how many fabulous additions are brought to this park. I love the fireworks at the end of the show, especially the one that forms the head of Mickey.
7. The Map
You’ll need a map or an aerial view of Disney’s Hollywood Studios to find this Hidden Mickey, the best one of all. Turn your map upside down and Ta-Da! Echo Lake and Animation Courtyard become Mickey’s ears, and the circular area around Center Stage becomes Mickey’s face.
