The Hidden Mickey Guy reveals almost 400 in latest edition
Steve Barrett is on the hunt again and his latest search for hidden Mickeys has taken him to Disneyland.
Hidden Mickeys are partial or complete images of Mickey Mouse that Disney “Imagineers” have designed to blend into their surroundings in such a way that their presence is not immediately obvious.
Known to his fans as the Hidden Mickey Guy, Barrett has spent the last 10 years searching out Hidden Mickeys throughout the Disney parks and cruise ships, documenting the results in a series of three books.
This third edition of Disneyland’s Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Disneyland Resort’s Best Kept Secrets, published by The Intrepid Traveler, features more than 100 new hidden Mickeys for a total of nearly 400.
Searching for hidden Mickeys is always a work in progress. Old hidden Mickeys will disappear when attractions are closed or remodeled, but Disney Imagineers, the people who design and build the attractions, resorts and entertainment venues, are adding new ones all the time to keep devotees on their toes. And Barrett is hot on their trail.
He personally searches out and documents all hidden Mickeys as he finds them or as they are reported to him by fans, who are gratefully acknowledged at the beginning of Disneyland’s Hidden Mickeys.
Barrett has designed the Hidden Mickeys series as scavenger hunts with an optional scoring system. You’re given clues about Mickey’s hiding places, then offered additional hints if you get stuck. Remember that searching for hidden Mickeys is always a work in progress: Old hidden Mickeys will disappear when attractions are closed or remodeled, but the Imagineers are adding new ones all the time, to the delight of fans. Be sure to check out the hidden Mickeys found in new rides such as Star Travel – The Adventures Continue, Disney Jr. Live on Stage!, and The Little Mermaid.
To allow fans to get a jump-start on the fun, The Intrepid Traveler is offering the new edition of Disneyland’s Hidden Mickey’s for just $7.77:
