  1. In the lobby, painting of wagon train heading west-above the front leg of the foremost oxen
    REPORTED: WDW List and Disney News magazine
    CONFIRMED: Tom and Renée Shaw 27 DEC 97
    At the American Pavilion main lobby: The Hidden Mickey on the forleg of the lead ox doesn't exist. The dark forms are pretty blurred. Confirmed my impression with a cast member that had heard the rumor. She did point out another vague possibility on a painting nearby.
    WISHFUL THINKING: John Frodesen 18 OCT 98
    Here is a photograph of the hidden Mickey found in the lobby of The American Adventure, in the wagon train painting. If it is just a coincidence, it's a pretty striking similarity to Mickey.
    UPDATE: Casey 14 MAY 02
  2. In the foyer is a painting of a construction workers on a skyscraper. At the top of one of the girders is three holes in the shape of a Hidden Mickey.
    REPORTED: The Blanchette Family 22 JUN 97
  3. On the deck of the fishing boat in the large mural are red flotation balls attached to the nets. Three are in the shape of Mickey's head and ears.
    REPORTED: Pam Hollis 30 MAR 02
  4. In the back of the rotunda on the first floor, as well as on the second floor, there are very large bronze eagle wall reliefs (approx. 4 feet wide by 6 feet tall). Each is framed with a series of alternating large and small circles with stars in them. At each corner, two small circles and one large one come together to form a tri-circle Mickey.

  5. In the main theater, there is a statue on the left side titled, "Spirit of Independence." By the statue's left foot, there is a stack of cannon balls. I'm not completely sure, but my wife Joanne, my nephew Ricky, and my brother-in-law Jemuel agree that the stack of canon balls looks like a Hidden Mickey with his head tilted to his right.
    REPORTED: Raynard Camello 19 JUN 96
    The cannon balls are all the same size.
    WISHFUL THINKING: John & Melanie Emmons 28 AUG 96
    The cannon balls next to the man's foot do form a Mickey head. All the canon balls look the same size but if you look carefully you can see that the "ears" are slightly smaller than the "head".
    CONFIRMED: Jennifer 11 JUL 99
  6. During the American Adventure show at the beginning there is one female pilgrim kneeling with her hand folded. The Hidden Mickey is on her bodice.
    REPORTED: Susan Hochmayr 15 JUN 97
    The pilgram kneeling the Mickey is on the rock just below or beside her skirt, not the bodice, but it is there.
    CONFIRMED: Joe Weeks 16 FEB 98
  7. In the film during the 1876 Exposition section and during the woman's speech, there are fireworks. One firework quickly bursts into a Mickey in the beginning of the segment.
    REPORTED: Sue Simone 26 MAY 95
  8. As the Statue of Liberty is being shown, fireworks are going off and the Torch set is coming up. If you're sitting at the far right of the stage so you can see the screen area behind the torch, a burst of fireworks goes off more like a fizzle and dissipates into a cloud of smoke in the shape of Mickey. This looks very similar to the "Mickey Head" balloons you can buy at the kingdom. (The colored ones, not the Mylar ones.)
    REPORTED: Jennifer Miles 07 NOV 95
    CONFIRMED: Confirmed by a Cast Member to John & Melanie Emmons 28 AUG 96
    CONFIRMED: Tom and Renée Shaw 27 DEC 97
  9. When Susan B. Anthony is speaking at the exposition in Philadelphia, the flag below her is pleated into a rounded shape, and it has Mickey ears.

America Gardens Theatre

  1. At the America Gardens Theatre there are a lot of temporary hidden Mickeys. On the pictures hanging up around the stage there are alot of mMickeys and alot of Mickey ears draw all around the art work. Look at the hot air balloons basket. These pictures are resused through out the year so they may not be hanging when you visit the park. They will be up through the Latin America rep season.
    REPORTED: Kiz 24 AUG 98

Liberty Inn

  1. At the Liberty Inn restaurant, to the left of the umbrella tables there is an outdoor hallway leading to the restrooms. Look in the design on the signs above the restroom entrances and you will find a Hidden Mickey.
