Hidden Mickeys appear and disappear – that’s the nature of the game. I attempt to size up a new Hidden Mickey: will it last a while? or not? Hidden Mickeys not only disappear, but some wear out with time, whether from natural causes or from human interference. Furthermore, as you know, some new images need to be studied and debated.
Like this one. It’s a sprinkle on a vanilla ice cream cone on the left side of the rear wall mural inside Ample Hills Creamery on the BoardWalk. Stare at the topmost dark sprinkle. Is it a Hidden Mickey? (Thanks to Iris and Zachary Herron).
I hope you had the chance to admire this Hidden Mickey in Zuri’s Sweets Shop in Harambe, Africa, Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s a striped Mickey figurine high on a shelf inside the shop. He lasted long enough for me to include him in the recent edition of the Walt Disney World Hidden Mickeys book.
Well, he’s gone! Maybe he’ll return, maybe not. I’ll keep an eye out for him.
I mentioned before that some images wear out with time, whether from wind or rain, or from folks walking over them or rubbing them with their hands. This great image along the left side entrance queue of Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom is fading with time. It’s above a faux fireplace on the right side of the queue. Catch it while you can! (A circle was added to the photo.)
Have a wonderful 2018!
