The Mickey is at an angle with the ears leaning to the right.

    As you enter into the "barn," after waiting in line outside, for Splash Mountain, there are three gears that make up a Mickey head, as previously reported. For awhile, however, the gears were actually moved, and no longer formed the Mickey. On our most recent visit, the gears have once again been "reassembled," so our ol' Pal has returned.

It is on the ceiling at the end of the cave where you are at the point when the Cast Member asks you, "How many in your party? " Look directly up just before that point and find a sprinkler. While you are waiting in line, you can see a sillouette of Mickey's profile. The sillouette is best viewed when you can see the light coming through the mouth (end) of the cave. Also, once you are directly under that final sprinkler, look up and you'll be able to make out Mickey's nose (created by the sprinkler), eyes, and right ear.

  42. While leaving the Splash Mountain, and walking along the main pedestrian walkway going toward New Orleans Square, I glanced back and noticed at the very top of Splash Mountain, above where the "big splash drop" comes out there appears to be a "Hidden Mickey". To see it you need to be outside the ride and queue area, watching the log come out for the drop, look at the tree stump that juts out forming the top most part of the structure. There are two holes separated by one of the roots and a large boulder at the base of the tree, that make up the head and two ears. While they aren't perfect shapes they do make up the classic Mickey Mouse head...
