Did I find an unknown Hidden Mickey on our Disney Dream cruise?

When i was going through the pictures from the cruise using Lightroom, I found this picture I took of the chandelier.

This is the original picture taken with my Nikon D7000 @18mm focal length. I bet everybody has a picture like this. I thought I would do a tight crop of it to get a little different perspective. I cropped the photo to what would be one hundred percent zoom on the image on the computer screen...if that makes any sense. The D7000 is a 16.something megapixel camera so you can get a very tight crop.


Here is the cropped image...
Is this a known hidden Mickey or did I stumble upon it? I thought it was pretty cool to accidentally take this photo.

I wouldn't be able to answer your question, but that sure is one hidden Mickey. Good job spotting that if you are the first to find it.

It may be an unintentional hidden mickey. It looks like it might be a piece of mickey head confetti that somehow got into the light fixture.

The one on the first hanging tier does look like a piece of mickey confetti. Maybe we can use it to track how often they dust out the chandelier?

Good catch though! And a great pic!
Wrong area. Right half of the photo, cream area between the tiers, flat on the ceiling. Ears pointing to the right. I don't think this is confetti.

It's an interesting find! I see the confetti and also the design. I believe it is a design, but not one many people would see! Great details!

I see the confetti piece..oops! I can see the "real" hidden mickey you are talking about, tho. I remember seeing those gold mickeys on every other panel on the chandelier...I have a pic too! I just LOVE how they are able to artfully incorporate our favorite mouse in to the decor! Thanks for sharing!!

Ok, I see the confetti thingy. I also see the evenly spaced gold mickeys. Is there something else?

So some do and some dont think it is confetti.
If it is confetti, how did it get there? Do they fire it on new years eve? Can it reach up that far? That has got to be at least thirty feet in the air if not more.
Does anyone have insight into this? This was my first cruise so I did not know about mickey confetti.

Here is an even tighter crop of the image. If it is confetti, then the confetti is exactly colour matched to the gold plate on the chandelier. To my eye the colours look the same.

Very cool...I had noticed the one at the top of the blue sides before (my FE is based off of this chandelier), but never saw the little gold one. Nice catch (even if it confetti)

They shoot off the Mickey head confetti at the end of Til We Meet Again on the last night of the cruise. It can go all over the place and you can find it for days later. LOL! Those are silver, but if it is on the other side of the glass it would just show the outline and not the color.

Nice catch!! I'd venture to say that it's not documented anywhere. You're likely the first person to catch that one. If it is confetti, I hope they never remove it! It could become the legendary hidden Mickey that you have to break out the "good camera" for!!
