A few years ago, I picked up a copy of Hidden Mickeys by Steve Barrett. I fell in love with the renewed fun and vigor I found in attractions I had ridden many, many times. I often wanted to ride an attraction immediately after riding it simply so I could try one more time to spot one of the Hidden Mickeys!
During a ride at Spaceship Earth, I spotted a Mickey Mouse sticker on the backside of a brown cup on the “THINK” desk. The sticker could only be spotted when you turn around in your ride vehicle and look at the cup through the wall mirror. After spotting it, I rode the attraction again to get a photo. It was late at night with hardly any guests riding the attraction, so I had permission from the Cast Members to take the photo.
Once I returned home, I realized that this Hidden Mickey was not included in Steve Barrett’s book. I turned to his website and found that I could SUBMIT my very own Hidden Mickey find! For a time, my name was added to the photo I took on Steve’s website! Now, my Hidden Mickey has been removed from the attraction.
If you ever find a Hidden Mickey that you believe was not already spotted by another, be sure to head over to Hidden Mickey Guy and click on the “Submit Hidden Mickey” and get your Mickey recognized!
