Mickey in Space

I will be the first to admit that I sometimes show up late to the party. Meaning, that something that is new to me, may be old news to someone else. Maybe you're like that, maybe you're not. But, here is the up shot.

During my recent "research" trip to Disney World I met up with my friend Ryan of Main Street Gazette fame. We were walking around Epcot taking pictures, talking, discussing memories of past trips and plans for future trips; you know, your standard geek stuff. I mentioned that I have not taken the time to really explore Mission: Space (darn FastPass), and would like to walk around, see the training center, and so forth. Well, while we were in the gift shop he says, did you see the Hidden Mickey? No, I had not. I mean, I am no Steve Barrett, but I read his book. This one, however, escaped my memory.

And since it may have escaped others, here you are.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty cool too! By the way, the reference can be found on page 49 of Dr. Barrett's Field Guide. Oh, and be sure to check out Ryan's Meet Our Neighbor interview over at Imaginerding. Oh, and one last thing, The Disney Obsession is one of the "you know you who are" blogs. I am so proud.

Oh LOVE it! I haven't had time to get into the hidden mickeys, but I'm sure by my sons zillionth trip by the time hes like 12 we'll be looking for a few new things. :)

PS. I dont know the whole story on Passamaquoddy, but I LOVE the Pete's dragon reference.

I also really appreciate you checking out my site. Would welcome the wisdom of such disney sages as you and ryan :)

Same here George. As The Mouse would say, it will be "real swell!"
