Hidden Mickeys of Disneyland (Paperback) (Bill Scollon)
about this item
Walt Disney was fond of saying, "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing: that it was all started by a mouse." And so it is only appropriate that the mouse is incorporated into nearly every aspect of the Disney parks and resorts. In some cases, Mickey's presence is obvious-as in the Partners statue that stands in the center of the hub at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. But in other cases, Mickey's influence is a bit more hidden. . . .So what exactly is a Hidden Mickey? Quite simply, it's an artistic representation of Mickey that was intentionally placed amid the architecture and design of the parks and resorts. Oftentimes it's the familiar three-circle shape of his ears and head. Other times it might be a profile of his face or a full-body silhouette. Disneyland Guests with keen eyes can tell you that Mickey pops up all over the resort, often in the most unexpected places.With this resort wide scavenger hunt, you'll be guided toward each Hidden Mickey, first with a general hint-if you're up for a challenge-and then with a very specific clue. It's so much search-and-find fun, you might forget about your FastPass reservation for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
Sometimes it might be just the shape of his ears and head. Other times it's a full-body silhouette. In the trickiest of cases, it could be just his gloves or his shoes. But Disneyland guests with keen eyes can tell you that Mickey pops up all over the Resort, often in the most unexpected places. While taking a ride on Peter Pan's Flight, look closely at the top right window in the clock tower and you just might see Mickey's silhouette. Turn the corner of the queue for Star Tours and keep an eye on the blue portal; you could spot the shadow of a familiar droid wearing Mickey's ears. If you're shopping in DCA, check out the purple octopus at Man Hat'n Beach: he's got an orange "spot" shaped like Mickey's head. These are just a few of the hundreds of Mickeys hidden all over the parks and resorts. With this book as a guide, guests will be steered toward each hidden Mickey with clues and helpful photos. It's so much search-and-find fun, they might forget about their FastPass for Big Thunder Mountain!
