Guests who visit Walt Disney World love spending time exploring the four theme parks, resorts, two water parks, and Disney Springs. Each area of Disney is so impressive due to the insane level of detail that goes into creating various themes which transport guests to different places and times. Amongst all of the details are images of Mickey Mouse that are worked into everything from artwork to décor. Hidden Mickeys can be found virtually everywhere throughout Walt Disney World and guests love finding them. The hidden images can be of Mickey or any Disney character and can range from easy to spot to extremely difficult to find. Guests who are looking to start searching for Hidden Mickeys should begin with ones that are fairly easy to spot. Here are the top nine Hidden Mickeys at Walt Disney World for beginners.

9. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress

In the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland is a classic attraction that was originally developed for the 1963 New York World’s Fair. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress brings guests through the century alongside a family as they enjoy the various forms of progress that are constantly being created. The final scene of the attraction showcases the family celebrating Christmas and is home to several Hidden Mickeys. A great Hidden Mickey for beginners to spot in the scene can be found underneath the tree. Guests should look for a large plush Mickey Mouse sitting amongst the presents.

8. Haunted Mansion

One of the most iconic attractions in Walt Disney World is the Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square. Guests who are brave enough to experience the spooky attraction are invited into Gracey Manor to rub elbows with nine hundred and ninety nine happy haunts. While passing through the graveyard scene, guests should look back to the right hand side of their Doom Buggies just before passing into the area with the hitchhiking ghosts. There they will spot a grim reaper in a crypt with one arm extended high above his head. Where his hand would be is a classic Hidden Mickey.

7. Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover

Also found in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland is the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover which brings guests on a journey on the highway in the sky. Along the way guests are treated to wonderful views of the land as well as glimpses into nearby attractions like Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. While enjoying the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover guests move past one scene depicting a woman having her hair done while waiting for her train. On the woman’s belt is a red buckle with a classic Hidden Mickey.

6. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Guests who are fans of the Pixar film Toy Story will love going for a ride on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. Once on board guests are outfitted with laser blasters and can aim at hundreds of targets to collect points to help defeat the Evil Emperor Zurg. While moving through the queue of the attraction, guests pass by a picture of the planet Pollust Prime several times. The planet looks similar to Earth and one of its land masses forms a Hidden Mickey featuring Mickey’s profile.

5. Living with the Land

Epcot’s Future World is home to The Land Pavilion which celebrates the beauty, wonder, and sustainability of the planet. Guests who experience Living with the Land can enjoy a serene boat ride which tours the massive greenhouses of the pavilion where fresh fruits and vegetables are grown using new technologies. While moving through one area of the attraction, guests pass by tanks featuring fish and alligators and approach a series of tubes housing eels and lobsters. One of the tubes features three circles of mesh wire which form a Hidden Mickey.
