  1. On the International Gateway clock tower, an upside-down Hidden Mickey is formed by the clock and the scrolls below it.
    REPORTED: The Blanchette Family 22 JUN 97
  2. While waiting to watch Illuminations, we were sitting in front of the store right by the lake that has doors on all four sides. (when walking towards the lake, turn left and the souvenier shop in front of the lake is where we were). If you stand next to the railings by the lake and look at the store, then move to your left a bit, you will see a cluster of 3 tall Palm like trees right by the wall of the store. The tops of these trees are at the same height and are circular. Together they form a perfect hidden Mickey.

  3. On the back side of the Junkanoo Bus, above the stairs
    The Junkanoo bus travels from Mexico and into World Showcase plaza to play a cool mix of Caribbean music. Anyway, they repainted one of the old double-decker buses for them to use, and if you look at the back, about halfway up, above the stairs, in yellow is a Mickey!!

  4. During the course of the JAMMitors' show, they equip their cans with smaller cans. Go up to the cans (or ask the guys nicely), and look at them from their P.O.V. It's a Hidden Mickey!

    REPORTED: Jay Hoskins 27 SEP 99
    In the new Millennium Parade, on all of the Millennium clocks. There are several hidden Mickeys formed by the large drum heads. This was very obvious to us as soon as we saw them.
    CONFIRMED: tom and dar 02 OCT 99
    Eight to be exact. I received this information from the designer of the drums.
    CONFIRMED: marci 02 OCT 99
    Yes, the drum heads do kinda look like a hidden Mickey but i can tell you first hand that they were not designed to look like there is a hidden Mickey
    WISHFUL THINKING: Melissa 30 JAN 00
    When I saw the parade the first time I noticed the drums. There are 4 on each side of the wheel. I don't think were out to make them too 'hidden'. Take a look and see them for yourself.
    CONFIRMED: Arthur Sanders 20 FEB 00
    In the Tapestry of Nations parade, the drummers play on a floats that look like clocks. The drumheads are set up in the form of a Mickey, with one large drum and two smaller drums making up the ears.
    CONFIRMED: Mary Gaughan 22 FEB 00
    I was a WALT DISNEY DREAMERS AND DOERS award recipient in 2000. I was given free tickets and attended EPCOT after the awards ceremony.. I got caught in the Millennium Parade at EPCOT and was watching the parade when I noticed that the CHRONO DRUMMERS the drums they were banging on occasionally had a Mickey head configuration.. this only occasionally happened and the rest of the drums were random patterns...
    CONFIRMED: Ben Kokochak 17 APR 00
    In the Tapestry of Nations parade, there are those giant clock-like things with all the drums in the middle. Some of the drums form perfect Hidden Mickeys.
    CONFIRMED: Christin 08 MAY 00
    In the parade that is currently running at Epcot, there are large drum wheels that separate each set of performers. Mounted on the wheels are sets of drums that rotate as the float moves by. Each set of drums has 5 drumheads...three of them are arranged in the shape of Mickey.
    CONFIRMED: Aaron 23 JUN 00
    In the EPCOT parade "Tapestry of Nations" there are floats which contain a big revolving wheel in the middle. On these wheels are many drum heads that are played by the cast members as the wheel slowly spins. If you look, three of the drum heads are arranged in the mickey shape on each quarter of the wheel (maybe it's each third).
    CONFIRMED: Andy 17 NOV 00
    During the Tapastry of Dreams parade, on the floats with the drums, many of the drums for up to make Mickeys.
