    In the Bar on the left-side of the restaurant, next to the opening in the wall that leads to the restaurant itself, is a curved coffee table colored white with a speckled design. The top of the table is attached to the wooden legs with stainless-steel Mickeys -- a screw goes through the large circle, and the 'ears' keep the tabletop attached. There is one on each table leg.

pict from hiddenmickeys.org
  1. As you walk through the plaza area across "Mickey's Face" the round sign for Min and Bill's Dockside Diner forms a Hidden Mickey as it lines up with the porthole windows behind it. As you change your line of sight more Mickeys are revealed as the sign lines up with other portholes.
    REPORTED: Dan 03 SEP 95
    CONFIRMED: Douglas Moothart 28 NOV 95
    The Mickey is definitely there if you stand at the right spot.
    CONFIRMED: Matt DeGrandis 19 FEB 96
    If you stand where the head of the big Hidden Mickey in front of the Mann's Chinese Theater and look towards the Min and Bill's Dockside Diner there is a Hidden Mickey made out of the portholes. You have to be standing in a certain place but if you move around enough you will be able to spot it.
    CONFIRMED: Brienne Tripp 09 JAN 97
    CONFIRMED: The Plat Family 14 MAY 97
    As you walk past "Min and Bill's Dockside Diner" when you get to a certain angle and look at the round Diner sign, the two portholes on the ship itself align with the Diner sign to form a Hidden Mickey. This is best seen if you are walking between the "islands of trees" and look towards the ship.
    CONFIRMED: Dr Disney 23 JUN 97
    At Min and Bill's Dockside Diner, if you stand at the front of the Great Movie Ride and look towards the diner there is indeed a Mickey made out of the portholes in the boat as is depicted in the photo.
    CONFIRMED: The Spencer Family 24 JUL 97
    CONFIRMED: Jamie Alonzo 25 JUL 97
    The "head" is a flat oval, the "ears" are too small, and I have a hard time buying a Hidden Mickey that you can only see if you are "standing in a certain place".

    CONFIRMED: Alisa Niethammer 04 SEP 98
    The Port Hole Mickey at Min and Bill's Dockside can be seen from a special bench. It apears that this bench was put there for just that purpose. To find it, start at the end of the Brown Derby's canopy and face toward the plaza (Where they're building the giant hat). There is a narrow path directly ahead that leads between 2 planting areas. Walk to the end of this path and you'll see a lone bench on your left. This is the special bench, sit on it and look at Min' and Bill's and you'll see it is positioned perfectly to view the Mickey. As there aren't any other benches around this one, I believe that it was put there just to show off the Hidden Mickey.
