6 Facts and Secrets about Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

5 – The Best Hidden Mickey.

The best Hidden Mickey in all of Walt Disney World is in Fantasyland.  As you probably already know there are these things known as “Hidden Mickey’s” all around Disney parks where Mickey’s head, body, ears, etc. are formed into rocks, flooring, paintings, details, etc. and you have to be paying attention in order to find them.  This creates extra fun for guests to seek them out when they are waiting in lines and exploring Disney parks.  Well, the imagineers went above and beyond this time.  They created a Hidden Mickey that can only be seen at noon every November 18th.  Do you know the significance of November 18th?  It is Mickey Mouse’s birthday!  The imagineers created a rock formation in the queue for Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid that will create a Hidden Mickey on the floor of the queue precisely at that time one that day only.  The sun will be in just the right place at that time to create the effect.  Pretty special, right?  This is one of my absolute favorite secrets in all of Walt Disney World.


Hi! I’m Kristin, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. We vacationed at Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what maked more sense was just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way.
