Grim Grinning Ghosts

The Haunted Mansion, that classic attraction that has been the focus of our attention this week at Mouse and Memos, WDW Hints, and here at My Dreams of Disney, is back for day five of our exploration of this iconic ride!  In today’s segment, I am going to examine some of the Hidden Mickey’s that you can find throughout the attraction.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of them, but hopefully that will change in future trips!

Believe it or not, but there are actually four Hidden Mickey’s to be found associated with The Haunted Mansion!  Three of them can be found while you are on the ride, and one more can be found after you get off the ride!

In the first Hidden Mickey, you need to be looking for it at the left end of the table during the ballroom scene.  Do you see it?  Look closely at the plates…if anyone has a picture of it, please share it with us for Disney In Pictures this Sunday!

The second Hidden Mickey can be found at the end of the graveyard scene.  Look at the face of a small ghost off to the right.  To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one, so I’ve got to go look for this one!

The third Hidden Mickey is near the woman with the red beating heart.  Look to the other side, and look at the three pots hanging on a post!

Lastly, after you get off the ride and exit The Haunted Mansion, look down and look for the Hidden Mickey next to a gate.

As we have explored this week, the stories about The Haunted Mansion are many, and the interest that it has piqued is considerable to me.  Couple that with the advent of the Hidden Mickey, and the Imagineers have successfully (in my mind, anyway) merged the old (the backstory) with the newer (the Hidden Mickey).

How many of you have found the Hidden Mickey’s?  Please let me know in the comments below, and thanks for reading!

Here is the schedule of what we have in store for you this week: registered & protected

  1. Awesome post Mike, thanks. You have a couple that I haven't seen so I have something new to look for on my next trip.

    One of my favorite Hidden Mickeys I didn't see mentioned is in the Grim Reaper's sleeve (well, I think he looks like the Grim Reaper). Look to you right, and almost back, into one of the last tombs in the cemetery to see it.

  2. There is also a “hidden Donald” or 2–one of them is on one of the chairs that comes floating toward you near the beginning of the attraction. Don't remember where the other one is, though.
