Good point. I don't think the colour would show through that opaque glass there. It could be glued to the outside of the glass.
I only took this picture at 18mm focal length. I guess you could go in with a tripod, zoom in and take a little sharper image. Mine was handheld at 1/60& ISO400.

I'm gonna try to clear this up.
There are two Mickeys I see in this picture, I have labeled them.



1) Good eye! You found a nice, classy hidden Mickey. They seem to be on every other panel.

2) This is obviously confetti. It is out of place, there are no others like it, there is no reason Disney would design such a beautiful chandelier and then put such a small, cockeyed Mickey like that on it. That's not the point of the hidden Mickeys. The hidden Mickeys are about having a Mickey naturally blend in to the point where you have to be focused on it to see it. This doesn't blend in, it sticks out. This is obviously just a piece of confetti.

Are you talking about the border? If so, there are Mickey's going around the entire tier....that I see. You can see two on the left side too.

Ok, just to clear this up, do you know they use that colour of confetti? It seems to be a match to the gold on the chandelier. I agree it is likely a piece of confetti, but if it was sitting on that piece of glass would you see it that clearly through the opaque glass? It sort of looks like it is on the underside of the glass.

Sorry...I think it is confetti.....It also looks like a piece of confetti to the left of that piece (a partial view of it) on the gold part.

Opaque glass would not give a true color. I think it is on the inside and not the outside of the glass. After each Till we Meet Again there is always mickey head confetti the kids are picking up..... somehow a piece or two got in there....they do shoot some confetti out of something from the upper levels so I can easily see a piece landing in there. I am pretty sure there is gold and silver confetti.

I think you would indeed see it that clearly. The glass/plastic is only lightly frosted and looks to be thin. The closer something is to the glass/plastic, the more clear it seems to be.

I also believe that the tint of the glass/plastic as well as the general gold colour reflecting off the the surrounding surfaces of the chandelier are what account for the colour of the Mickey head that you are seeing.


(Oh, to answer your question, I do not know what colour the confetti is. On the one cruise I've been on, we did not attend the "Til we meet again" party because we went to Palo.)

It is directly on the glass and the light is shining right on it. So yes, I think you would be able to see it clearly.

To the OP:
I have a question: There are some similar looking "spots" on the original photo. They're both located in the green glass all the way to the outside of the chandelier (they're at about 10:00 and 2:00).
I'm curious what you'd find if you zoomed in on those areas...Maybe it's more confetti!

So am I the first to get a picture of a poorly detailed light fixture?

There are the same Mickey heads around the light in the Fantasy's atrium also, in reference to the bigger ones that are around this light on the Dream.

I am amazed at how much conversation a single piece of errant Mickey-shaped confetti can generate. That is exactly what that is.

Yes I think that is confetti. At Weddings and special events they use that gold foil mickey yhead confetti. they shoot it out of canons, that's most likely how it got in the glass.

The #1 mickey heads are an intentional mickey stamp, I ageree with a previoyus posters the imaganeers wouldn't have put a hidden mickey so randomly. they would have incoprated it better in the design.
