My daughter and I love Disney and anything Disney but I'm finding them more and more greedy every year. They just upped their yearly subscription to their online playhouse. They haven't put out a good movies in years (my opinion), and when you order their merchandise, it's poorly made. I find myself going online to the UK Disney and buying their stuff because it's better quality. We are planning our annual Disneyland trip in November just to see if we can spot some more hidden Mickeys. I heard they put more of them into the attractions. Anyone have any pointers on where to look?

This post was kind of a gripe, sorry.

Re: Greedy Disney

How funny!  I just found out last night that Boyfriend and I will be going in February.  The last time I was there was April of 1990, when MGM had just opened.  I'm looking forward to Epcot Center, now that I'm old enough to drink, lol.

Re: Greedy Disney

Thers are 159 hidden Mickey's placed by engineers throughout DL resort. With the help of guests and cast members I believe the count is in the hundreds now. Keep your eyes open on your next trip for the originals placed by the imagineer team: (some are seasonal and the 50th ones were up during that celebration)

 

Main entrance-14

Main Street-10

Fantasyland-10

Toon Town-31 

Tomorrowland- 11

Adventureland-6

New Orleans-13

Frontier land-6

Critter Country-5

parades-3

50th anniversary Mickey's- 50

Re: Greedy Disney

I never knew there were so many by the main entrance. My favorite is the one in Pirates of the Caribbean. It's a little known one in the clouds. I also love watching the DVDs and finding them on there. There is a new Disney cartoon coming out, it's called Bolt. The commercials are so funny and I can't wait to take my daughter. The hamster character alone is worth the price of the ticket. It's funny how I was complaining yesterday about the movies that were put out and last night I saw the commercial to the new one.

Re: Greedy Disney

In Anaheim, they put in a new parking lot but built it around the first tree Walt planted. It's all fenced in and the tram goes around it.

Re: Greedy Disney

I did a quick weekend honeymoon at Disney World. If you tell them its your honeymoon you get neat perks... like free deserts or champagne glasses at the good restaurants. And we ate in the castle restaurant and they gave us the best seat, all decorated for us and everything. We went back on an anniversary and they did the same thing...
