I found the coolest hidden Minnie! The best hidden character I've seen so far. When you are exiting the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center, there are several round "skylights" in the ceiling. One of them is surrounded by white lights, look up into it as you walk under it....Minnie! none of the other holes have this...and I only saw it at night.
REPORTED: Selena Parisher 15 MAR 99
I looked for the Minnie again this year, and she's still there...although I saw it in the daytime this time, and it looks kind of smeared, like maybe a Minnie sticker was there and it was pulled off...theres also one in the TTC when you get off the Epcot monorail, in the skylight with the white lights around it, but this one is more distorted. The one when you get off the MK monorail is the best.
UPDATE: Selena Parisher 07 APR 00
Selena Parisher claims to have seen 2 Hidden Minnies on the monorail platform at the Ticket and Transportaion center, one the Magic Kingdom beam and one the Epcot beam. Well, I regret to inform her that I beleive she is mistaken. Having seen these skylights numerous times, they are not cleverly placed Hidden Minnies; instead, some poor little kid lost his balloon. What they are, are mylar balloons, one side has a Mickey head the other a Minnie head. What happens is the child (unfortunately)loses his balloon, it floats to the top of the skylight where it stays and basically melts to the top of the skylight. It is then taken down, but part of the balloon still stays on it because it is essentially melted to it. That's why it may look like, as S.P. said that, "...it looks kind of smeared, like maybe a Minnie sticker was there and it was pulled off..." It's not a sticker, but a mylar balloon.
WISHFUL THINKING: Amanda 27 JAN 01
I just wanted toĘcomment on the "Mylar Balloon" Hidden Mickey I thought I saw (A Minnie, I believe) years ago on the skylights in the TTC. After reading it was actually a balloon imprint, I did feel silly, but now when I see them I can't help but point them out to whomever I'm with and tell them the story of how I thought it was a "Hidden Minnie!"
UPDATE: Selena Parisher 17 JAN 06
In the Crystal Palace Restuarant on Main street there is a Hidden Minnie. It appears this may not have been there since the building was built, but it is certainly there now. If you look at the glass windows above the center of the restuarant there is a hidden Minnie directly above the flowered TIGGER statue.
REPORTED: MickeyMania 26 APR 99
In the Crystal Palace if you look up at an angle and the sun is in the right place there is a painted Minnie face at the side of the top of the arch of the center window in the ceiling. Would this be a hidden Mickey or 'Minnie'?

The Pygmy Beach does have a hidden Mickey carved on the canoe. But, it also has a hidden Donald and a hidden Goofy. They're very surreal, but that's what they are...
REPORTED: chief namee 04 APR 99
Yes, the Goofy and Donald are there with the Mickey on the canoe. Also the "Trashing the Camp" scene looks alot more like the scene in Trazen it always has, so has the rock structure where the lions are. It's alwaysl looked like Pride Rock before there was a Pride Rock. Go figure that Disney would base new movie scenes on one of the greatest Disney park rides
CONFIRMED: Jason Gallagher 10 APR 00
First, on the Pigmy beach, yes the canoe is a Hidden Mickey, but the two canoes next to it are also hidden Disney characters. One is a Donald, and one is a Goofy.

In the Pirates of the Carribean ride, between two of the treasure rooms, there is a huge rock outcropping, when you look up at it (it's pretty high off the water) it's Goofy's silhouette, the left side of his face. Then the boat goes under it and if you turn around to look at it from the other side, you can see his hat and a whole where his eye should be.
REPORTED: Wendy Mora Angela Darling 06 AUG 98
There is a hidden Sid Ceasar. Near the end of the ride when there are some people in the jail. The man closest to the dog is the spitting image of Sid Ceasar. I wouldn't report this unless it was as obvious as it is.
REPORTED: mark 07 JUL 97
Walt and Sid were very good friends
CONFIRMED: Jim Chasen 15 SEP 97
In respect to the report of having Sid Ceaser located in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, I'd bet money that it's true. It's fairly common knowledge that the imagineers placed themselves and many influencial Disney personel and friends as pirates inside the ride.
UPDATE: anon 10 SEP 98
The pirate in the cell trying to coax the dog into giving them the keys, yup, that's Sid Caesar alright. My girlfriend agreed with me to.
REPORTED: disneyman 05 OCT 98
In the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, one of pirates trying to lure the dog with the key is the likeness of Sid Caesar. Sid was the friend of one the Pirate Imagineers and a great Disneyland fan, so they modeled a pirate after him as a joke. That fact was located in one of the "about disneyland" books that is sold in the gift shops. I bought my book with this fact in 1999.

On Splash Mountain, there are 4 referances to Warner Brothers charecters. Throughout the ride, there are signs, in which each one reads either Bugs, Daffy, Road Runner, or Porky. They are part of other phrases in the signs, yet they are all in capital letters, so it's obvious. Could it be that Splash Mountain is home to more than just Disney Charecters?
REPORTED: Andy Kelemen 21 JUL 01
When you are waiting in line at night, and your closer to the right side of the station as youre facing the mountain, you can see two shadows on the front of the mountain. The one on the left looks just like Pluto (profile, facing left)!
REPORTED: Selena Parisher 15 MAR 99
In the beginning of the ride, right after passing the bats, you go up a hill where there are stalagmites and pools of water. In a large pool in the back, there is a silhouette on the bottom of the pool. You can't see it until you are right above it near the top of the hill and passing it, but it is clearly GOOFY.
REPORTED: Al Branch 13 SEP 98
Tom Sawyer Island is also home to the only hidden Goofy in the park. In the magnetic mystery mine, after you pass through the slanted floor, the glowing gems, to the right of the waterfall, form the head of Goofy.

In the room you pass where it appears that the hallway goes on forever with a candelabra in it, there is an armchair on the viewer's left side of the room and a suit of armor (I think) on the right.

Just a "scary face" that happens to resemble Donald to some people.

On the right side of the hunny pot you ride in, on the floor, is a picture of Winnie-the-Pooh standing next to Mr. Toad. Interesting, because Disney replaced Mr Toad's Wild Ride with this new Pooh ride.

The guy who said that there is a hidden Mole from Mr.Toad's in the Many Adventuers of Winnie the Pooh needs to be reminded that there is a charcter named and is a Mole in the Winnie movies, TV series, and books. That is probably the Mole that he saw.
UPDATE: anon 17 NOV 00
In the "Other Hidden Characters" section for the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh there is a comment from someone that says there is a character named "Mole" in the Winnie the Pooh stories. This character is actually called "Gopher" so if there is a picture of Mole in the ride, it must be from the Mr. Toad ride as mentioned in the original post.

Peter Pan's Flight
This one is not a Hidden Mickey, but a hidden Peter Pan. In the London sky scene [where Big Ben is] up in the moon to the upper left hand side as you leave the scene. If you are lucky and if the moon spins around in time, you can see Peter Pan flying on the moon. I bet its a shaddow put there on purpose, but look for it!
REPORTED: jonathan cooper 23 JUN 96
Actually, the figure on the moon is Peter Pan, Wendy, John, and Micheal, not just Pan.
UPDATE: Freddy Zanfardino 23 NOV 97
When you're flying out of the nursery, you hear Peter Pan say, "And off we go!" Look to the wall on the right; there's a spotlight and Peter Pan's shadow flies across it. I look for it every time!

In Peter Pan's Flight, there are figures of three mermaids. One of them has the familiar red hair and purple bra of Ariel, the Little Mermaid.
REPORTED: RIck Shear 23 OCT 98
Maybe it's serendipitous, maybe it's just me, but doesn't the mermaid on the far left as you pass the mermaid lagoon look an awful lot like Ariel from The Little Mermaid? I know the ride is older than the movie, but even if it hasn't been rehab'ed since then, they had to get the character design for Ariel somewhere, right?
CONFIRMED: Gwendel 03 NOV 98
I don't think that mermaid has been changed to fit Ariel. I remember her being like that ever since my frist trip to WDW in 1987.

This is not a Hidden Mickey but on Peter Pan's Flight in Wendy, Jon and I Forget Room right as you enter the Darling family nursery there are some alphabet building blocks stacked up on the floor (one group is by Wendy's bed, the other by the window as you exit the room). These blocks spell Pan and DISNEY. The "s" is an upside down "5."
Actually, there are three names the blocks spell out.
DISNEY - The "s" is an upside down 5
P PAN - you can see this one if you're in line next to the rail when the boats are going into the Nursery. If you lean a little over the rail, you can see this one plain as day
PAN - this is a second Pan in the nursery. It can bee seen with two of the letters on their sides. none are piled, only on the floor
