Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets, 6th edition by Steven Barrett is now available! You can pick up your copy of the latest edition of the Hidden Mickeys book and be part of the Hidden Mickey craze! This Hidden Mickey guide is set up as a scavenger hunt throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
According to Barrett, here is the definition of an official Hidden Mickey: “a partial or complete image of Mickey Mouse that has been hidden by Disney’s Imagineers and artists in the designs of Disney attractions, hotels, restaurants, and other areas.” Barrett explains in his book that Hidden Mickeys likely began in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s during the construction of Epcot when Disney management wanted to keep Mickey and Minnie only in Magic Kingdom.
Barrett begins his book by explaining how he has set up his Hidden Mickey scavenger hunts and even includes some tips to help you have the most fun and even find the most Hidden Mickeys. The book then lists scavenger hunts for each of the four theme parks, one for the hotels, and then one for the rest of the Walt Disney World Resort. Barrett also includes a list of some of his favorite Hidden Mickeys and concludes with an index of the Hidden Mickeys found throughout the resort. The index allows you to find Hidden Mickeys at a specific attraction or area if you don’t want to participate in the scavenger hunt.
I think Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets, 6th Edition is a great book for anyone heading to the Walt Disney World Resort. Whether you want to participate in the scavenger hunt or not, you can use this book to check if some of the Hidden Mickeys you spot are true Hidden Mickeys or as a guide to find the secret magic of Hidden Mickeys. The scavenger hunts are fun for families and groups to compete and see who can get the best score or even couples who want to play against each other.
Be sure to pick up your copy of Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets, 6th edition before your next Walt Disney World vacation! It is available at most retailers for $13.95.
