Why should Hidden Mickeys get all the fun??
One fun way to pass the time in Disney World is to search for Hidden Mickeys. Imagineers will often hide Mickey designs in different elements around the parks and resorts. He could appear in anything from decor, to seasonal displays, to park attractions. We’ve even seen a Hidden Mickey inside a CUPCAKE! But did you know there are also some Hidden MINNIES around Disney World??
That’s right, guests with a sharp eye can spot some Hidden Minnies woven throughout the Disney World decor as well. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorites!
Living with the Land
In The Land Pavilion at EPCOT, guests can take a relaxing boat ride on Living with the Land.
There are several Hidden Mickeys throughout the attraction, in the form of Mickey-shaped produce.
But this attraction is also home to a Hidden Minnie! Part of the attraction takes guests through a fish farm, which houses hybrid striped bass, tilapia, catfish, and freshwater shrimp.
Keep a close eye on the freshwater shrimp section and you might just spot a Hidden Minnie made of wire in the tank!
Living with the Land is full of fun details like this, which makes it a seriously underrated attraction in our opinion!
Disney’s Riviera Resort Skyliner Station
Let’s hop on the Skyliner to spot our next Hidden Minnie! Each Skyliner station is themed to match its home park or resort, to keep guests immersed in the experience.
In keeping with the luxe theming inspired by the European Riviera, the Skyliner station at Disney’s Riviera Resort is decorated with beautiful gold scrollwork.
And there’s a recognizable figure included in the ornate design. As you approach the Skyliner station, keep an eye out for Minnie, adorned with her iconic bow in the scrollwork!
Add that to the list of awesome details you can spot from above while riding the Skyliner!
Disney’s Riviera Resort Carpet
While we’re on the subject of Disney’s Riviera Resort, let’s take a look inside to check out the carpet.
The carpet in the resort gives a subtle nod to several of our favorite Disney icons. If you’re on the hunt for hidden characters, this spot is a must-see!
You can find Mickey…
…and, of course, Minnie all hidden in the design!
It just goes to show, you could be passing by (or literally stepping on!) some incredible Imagineering details at any moment in Disney World!
Jungle Cruise Temple
Our next Hidden Minnie takes us over to Magic Kingdom for a trip on the world-famous Jungle Cruise!
This comedy-filled boat tour takes riders on a trip through the waters of Asia, Africa, and South America, with plenty of exciting scenery along the way.
Towards the end of the tour, guests pass through a dark temple, filled with an assortment of dangerous creatures.
As you first enter the temple, take a look at the concrete work on the righthand side to see if you can find an extra elusive Hidden Minnie. Good luck, adventurers!
Be Our Guest Ceiling
There are three dining rooms inside the restaurant. First, there’s the Rose Gallery, decorated with portraits of Belle and the Beast, in addition to a giant music box centerpiece with the couple slowly twirling on top.
The West Wing has a more dark and ominous atmosphere, with the Enchanted Rose and a changing portrait of the Beast on display.
The largest dining room is the Ballroom, which is also packed to the brim with theming. For one, the falling snow in the windows perfectly matches the sequence in the movie. And if you look up, you’ll spot a mural on the massive ceiling.
The cherubs on the mural are modeled after the children of the Imagineers that worked on the restaurant.
But that’s not the only detail hidden in the mural. There’s also the silhouette of a Hidden Minnie in the clouds! Hunt for it next time you visit (hint: look close to the first chandelier as you enter the ballroom!)
Add this to your list of details to keep an eye out for if you manage to snag a reservation at this coveted restaurant.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Floor
For our last Hidden Minnie, we’re heading over to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Given the large scale and elegant features of this deluxe resort, you might find your eye regularly drawn upward as you stroll through the lobby and common areas.
But don’t forget to take a peek down every now and then too. Each of the Fab Five are featured on the floor of the Grand Floridian, including Miss Minnie Mouse herself!
And some underrated Disney characters make an appearance as well. The next time you visit, see if you can spot Mrs. Potts…
…and Chip in the tiles! They can be found, adorably, near the Garden View Tea Room.
We’ve also spotten Tinker Bell, Peter Pan and the Darling children, and more characters hidden in these gorgeous ornate floors. Given her status as an elegant fashionista, we think Minnie Mouse is right at home in the Grand Floridian.
One of the things that makes visiting Disney World so much fun is the incredible amount of detail that’s packed into seemingly every corner of the attractions, restaurants, and resorts. Guests can literally search from the floor to the ceiling to try to spot all of the hidden details. Try to spot these Hidden Minnies on your next visit to Disney World and let us know what other awesome things you find along the way!
