Uncovering 50 Hidden Mickeys

I uncover every Hidden Mickey during Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary.

Being a huge fan of Walt Disney, it was a privilege to be able to return to Disneyland as it celebrated its 50th anniversary.  One of the many special features that were added to the park as part of the celebration was fifty “Hidden Mickeys” scattered throughout the park.  Always up for a challenge, I made it my mission to uncover all fifty Hidden Mickeys.  It took me three days, but I was able to track down the location of every single one.  Some were easy to spot, like the Hidden Micky giant flower display at the Disneyland entrance above, others took a little more effort like the one sitting above the clock in the same picture, and some were nearly impossible to spot unless you were carefully paying attention to the smallest details.  So to commemorate Disneyland’s 50th year, and to help out those of you who have been scouring the park looking for that final elusive Mickey, I’m putting up a master list of the location of all fifty Hidden Mickeys.

And Finally…

This one drove me crazy.  It’s back by the petting zoo at Big Thunder Ranch.  In my opinion, the petting zoo is a major waste of space and hopefully the site of a much better future Dinseyland attraction.  Needless to say, I never even bothered to go over there in the day, and only ventured over at night because it’s a great way to avoid the crowds when going from Fantasmic to the Fireworks.  However, at night, it’s pitch black back there and you’d never even know there was a stage coach, let alone a Hidden Mickey.  So that’s number 50 for me.
