Yes, that's it! My eyes went right to it. Again, I have no way of knowing if it is an intentional hidden Mickey placed there by the sneaky Disney people - like the snowdrift hidden Mickey on the ballroom floor is intentional - or if it is just an accidental Mickey-esque shape. I sometimes think they put in shapes that appear to possibly be hidden Mickeys (but aren't really official hidden Mickeys) just to throw us off. I have not seen it in HMH before, but I have never taken any photos inside the ride. Seeing a still photo draws my attention to certain things that I would miss while in the moving Doom Buggy.

The snowdrift hidden Mickey in the ballroom was, if I recall correctly, not there last year on at least one of my rides on HMH. This year it was back again, but it moved over a bit. I have just never seen it anyone's photos so I wonder if people are missing it.

I think that what is working against the people who are trying to look for the Monkey Bride is that they are trying to look for it. If they are exerting effort to look for it and they spend 2 seconds too long looking in the wrong spot, they will miss seeing it in the correct spot. I had never read any instructions on where to find it. All I knew was that it was somewhere in the attic - which could have been anywhere. I just got lucky in that I happened to turn around at the right time, in the correct spot, and look to the left and back, and caught it. If I had looked ahead or to the right at that point, I would have missed it. If I had actually tried to catch it and spent any time looking for it, I would have missed it, I'm sure.

I miss a ton of things because I'm looking at the world thru the small camera screen......but it is fun to go back & have new things pointed out that I missed even when looking at my photos.

I wasn't aware of the ballroom hidden Mickey & I would have missed it I'm sure. I would need to do multiple rides over & over to spot some of things people talk about.

We have one of those hidden Mickey books & the boys have taken interest in finding some of them....but I haven't started that hobby yet.

Sometimes other people have noticed things in my photos over the years that I didn't see up front. It happens when we take thousands upon thousands of photos, of all sorts of things - eventually we miss certain things in our own pictures that other people will see.

That's what's great about photos and about different people viewing the photos - many people will see or be struck by different things! One person will take away something different from a photo than what someone else took from it.

But that 'shape' may just be a coincidental Mickey-esque shape. Without an in-depth investigation and another ride on HMH to see if we can catch the shape up close, we won't know if it was intentional or not. It could just be a fluke.

I like the Hidden Mickey book because it's a good general guideline, but fortunately they don't give the locations of all of the hidden Mickeys in the parks - only some of them. As my friend Shawn pointed out, most of the fun is in just discovering them as a surprise, without knowing they are there (we discovered one or two in the Little Mermaid queue and that got us talking about them).

Very true.....I love when someone points out something I totally missed!!! It's probably a Mickey clock....who knows.....maybe someone else will have seen it or have a picture or will ride before it goes away for the season & we can get an answer!!!

A lot of the ones in the book aren't visible anyways.....you need a flashlight, or need to be able to cross the "velvet ropes" to get a glimpse of it....so the random ones, that may or may not be "hidden" are the fun ones!!

O.K, I've gotta go back to that whole beer shack thing. Let's think about this. How did Club 33 get it's name? It was because Walt did not want an alcohol permit associated with Disneyland so he applied for it as W.E.D enterprises 33 Royal St. Anaheim. I seriously doubt that as Walt watched his daughters play on the carousel that fateful day he thought "man I wish I had a beer 'bout now" Exit soapbox now

Chapter Forty One~~It's a Small World!!

Pictures outside the ride taken from the boat.

I was enjoying the holiday version of the ride....its cheery & who can't help but tap your foot & sing along to Jingle Bells?? Not this guy!!!! (gal.....lol)

More Small World Holiday to come!

Chapter Forty Three~~Even More Small World Holiday!!

Are you enjoying all the holiday decorations, sweet treats & music....oh that's right, you can't hear Jingle Bells being sung over & over again.....well imagine it while you browse thru the next installment.






















Can you spot the bobblehead Elvis???







Has the Jingle Bell song started to take over your thoughts & become an earworm yet?? Well if not, you'll be glad to hear that there's still more, more, more Small World to come!!!

Chapter Forty Five~~One More Time!!!

Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, JINGLE, JINGLE.......... I didn't mind hearing that over & over......of course, I love the holidays, so I LOVE the music!!!!










Back out in the real world.











So this completes the tour around the Small World!! It also concluded our Holiday Tour. Our Tour Guide, Allison, got us all on the ride but was long gone when we got off. Kinda weird to get off the ride & then it was done.

The tour was really worth taking the time for & the cost. I really enjoyed it & loved getting right on the HMH & IASWH. Getting front row seats to the parade was awesome!! The cocoa & cookie were delicious & I loved the pin we got.

Next time I'll bring you: The Text!

All caught up! Lots and lots of great photos! You got so many good ones of inside IASW. I couldn't get any for the life of me! Did you just use a point and shoot or did you have Mikes fancy new camera?

Looks like that tour was really good, despite the head phone part. I loved your spot in the parade. And those snowmen are sooo cute. I love snowmen.

I agree with you about the Electrical Parade. It needs to be brought back. If we go to WDW in the spring, I am making it a priority to see it, that's for sure.
