When visiting Disney you may notice some special surprises peeking out around every corner. This is no secret and often times what many guests look forward to while they’re there. Occasionally you may even notice a familiar “face”. If you think you see the outline of Mickey or some other characters you may just be right.There’s a fantastic “character hunt” style game that you can play just about everywhere. Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Theme Parks and Resorts all get in on the fun. And the best part… IT’S FREE. Hidden Mickey’s can be found in the most interesting places. Sometimes the best part of the game is searching for that last elusive one on the list. If you need help you can usually find a Cast Member that will know where to guide you to find some of the tougher ones.
This game can be a great activity when waiting in line for a ride, sitting at a restaurant or just winding down after a busy day. There’s even a book that can give you tips and hints to guide you in the right direction. As well as a point system you can use to tally up your finds. The Hidden Mickeys Field Guide by Steven M. Barrett is available for each location. There’s also an app available for iPhone so you can take the fun wherever you go.
Having played this game ourselves I can tell you it can be a blast for kids and adults alike. It’s one of our favorite free extras to do while visiting our “second home”. Be sure to try it out the next time you visit!
