  3. I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the Disney Sports Arena. During a break in action a was looking around and noticed a hidden Mickey in the rafters above the the court. It was hard to tell but it looked like a hat or something like that.

    When I was at the new Disney World of Sports complex for a Harlem Globetrotters game, my friend had pointed out a hidden Mickey in the rafters above. When you enter the basketball court and you look directly above you will see a stuffed animal hidden Mickey looking over the court.

    I used to run cross-country, and one year, we all ran a 5k at Disney Wide World of Sports in Orlando. When you enter, you walk through a turnstile and down a lot of stairs. At the bottom, to the left, i think, you can enter a building. In that building, there is a basketball court. The architecture of the ceiling clearly forms the famous mouse's outline.

  4. At the Field House, look up as you enter stand over the balcony and look up to the center against the yellow wall and you will find Mickey's ears.

    This is definately a true hidden Mickey. There is no way that this could have been accidently placed, since it is up near the ceiling of the Field House, which I'm sure is over 80 feet up. It is positioned upright and Mickey's mouth is partially obscured by one of the beams holding up the ceiling. If you know where to look, you can't miss it. It is located on a wall which connects with the ceiling, above the back of the seating area (across from where you come in). This wall isn't the perimiter wall, but a yellow wall which makes the center of the room higher than the edges. The front also has a similiar looking celing-wall. If you're not sure where to look, just stare around at the ceiling looking for Mickey ears near the intersection of two metal beams, and you will definately find it, unless you are sitting in the seats on the back wall.

    If you enter the field house and stand on the court floor and face south and lock up into the rafters and ceiling on I think the third rafter there is a Mickey Mouse hidden. The Mickey is in the SW corner of the rafters. The figure is actually pasted on of the rafters and is in color.

    At the Wide World of Sports in the Field House. Look at the Archway in the back of the building in the ceiling. The lighting crew placed a stuffed mickey doll in the metal rafters. The exact location is 2 half circles left from center half circle.

  6. Retail Shop (connected to Ballpark but not accessible from Ballpark, along 3rd base line) - Pattern in carpet has balls from various sports (soccer, baseball, etc) that form the Mickey three-circle head and ears. I know that this carpet was custom designed (probably by Imagineering), so this isn't likely to be a wishful thinking Mickey.

    In the gift shop, on the left, as you enter, there is a hidden Mickey in the carpet, with a baseball as his head and golf balls as his ears.

  7. There is a Hidden Mickey in the design of the baseball/softball fields. If you look on one of the many maps around the complex, you can see a big field with 2 smaller fields above it. This was also confirmed to me by an employee that works there.
