It’s time for the DCP Countdown again! Only 9 more glorious days until check-in at the Disney College Program and what better way to celebrate than to share with you a Disney World secret? We all know the Hidden Mickeys throughout the resort: from the bedrooms to the rides. So seeing them only at the parks might make you think that they’re a rare species, right? 

Actually, you couldn’t be more wrong. Now this might sound as crazy as the conspiracy that the JFK assassination was staged, but unlike that conspiracy, I have physical proof in photos from throughout the years that prove that Hidden Mickeys are not as rare as you might think.
Exhibit A:

This is a picture taken in Colorado. Given the year of that dumpster, I’d say that this photo is only a few years old. But you see the top of the dumpster? Turns out Hidden Mickeys aren’t very fearful if they’re hungry.

Exhibit B:


It isn’t known whether the photographer is aware of the supposedly “rare” creature on his head, but one thing’s for sure, the Hidden Mickey has the vanity of a peacock: why take a picture of a pianist when the real star of the show is right on top of him? Perhaps the Hidden Mickey is a sociable creature as well?

Exhibit C:


The most convincing evidence of all: a mother Hidden Mickey tending to her babies in her nest. This not only tells us that Hidden Mickeys are out there, but they breed and they are thriving. How could this be a rare species with a photo like this?
The fun doesn’t just stop there, though. Enjoy these pictures that further prove the existence of Hidden Mickeys outside of the Disney World Resort.

This Hidden Mickey is braver than I…this photo,  I’ve been told, was taken beside a haunted building right outside of Chicago. No grim grinning ghosts are going to scare this Mickey away!

This Mickey looks like it’ll go to great lengths to get its next meal…either that or it’s planning to make this unsuspecting kitty its next meal. Either way, this picture is nail-biting!

 Looks like Hidden Mickeys also enjoy a good visit to the local café as well. Do you think they’d prefer lattes or americanos?

Personally, I prefer an Apple…but iMouse sounds like a promising brand.

It’s unknown whether Hidden Mickeys can fly, or whether they’re like flying squirrels in that they use their ears as little parachutes. One thing’s for sure, though:

The Hidden Mickey for sure isn’t a rare species. If you see one, take a picture. It could be worth quite a few bucks.
