As the Disney Travel Agent of The Jambo Everyone Blog, sometimes I need to focus on the most beautiful park on property- Disney's Animal Kingdom. I have realized that many have a love/hate relationship with this park. I don't get it at all, but to each his own. This park is visually stunning in a way that I have never seen at any theme park, Disney or otherwise.
We all know what a Hidden Mickey Hunt is, heck many of us do it when we aren't even in Disney. It's engrained in us to find little Mickey Ears hiding in plain sight. I find that one of the hardest parks to find Hidden Mickeys is Animal Kingdom! You could honestly get a Hidden Mickey book and have your children scour the park for hours on end. The themes in every area are so detailed that Mickey is well hidden in Animal Kingdom.
I challenge you on your next Disney Vacation to spend more than 3 hours at Animal Kingdom. Don't read this and pretend you don't go over in the morning to ride Everest, The Safari and see Festival of the Lion King and then head back to Epcot for the night. I know you do! I make people's Disney plans for a living I see it all the time.
Here are a few to get you started on your quest for Hidden Mickey's on your next visit:
- There is a hidden Mickey on the main path around the park by one of the restrooms. It is located right outside of the women's restroom that is past Pizzafari.
- There is a frog statue with a number of circles and curves carved into it. One is clearly a Mickey.
- When you go on the Discovery Riverboats in the Safari Village, Discovery Island. On the 2nd bridge that you go through. On the right-handed side (the bridge going to Camp Minnie-Mickey) is a Mickey head with fancy borders around imprinted on a big log.
After you are done in the park for the day do the unthinkable--head over to Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner and continue the hunt there!! You won't be sorry you did as the dining is remarkable.
