Hidden Mickeys DW secrets

One of the really fun things that we did on our last trip in 2007 (I was pregnant so I needed something to make it extra special even though I couldn't get on some of the rides) was to look for hidden Mickey's and special things throughout the park. I was hoping to get a book this time. Last time, I searched the internet and compiled the list but this time I was wondering if there was a book and maybe some cool scavenger hunts that would be fun while touring the parks. What is the best book? I don't just want hidden Mickeys but some of the really cool things. For example finding one of Aunt Polly's paintbrushes and things like that. Or my favorite-the do not pull sign in DHS near Indiana Jones-love that one and the umbrella from singing in the rain.

I am currently reading the hidden magic of walt disney world. I got it for Christmas and I am learning a lot of things I did not know. I would suggest reading it.

I have seen a book at barnes and noble, and books-a-million that is strictly related to hidden mickeys. Every time I've seen it I've always wanted to get it but I've never had a trip planned when I see it.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World! And, because I'm a total nerd, I even highlighted it and took notes before one of my trips.
