    Hidden Mickeys What the heck is a hidden Mickeys? A Hidden Mickey can take different forms. The most common image is the tri-circle Mickey frontal silhouette: three circles that form Mickey’s round head and adjoining round ears. Other images include a side or oblique (usually three-quarter) profile of Mickey’s face and head, a side profile of his entire body, a full-body frontal silhouette, a detailed picture of his face or body, or a three-dimensional Mickey. Sometimes, just his gloves, handprints, shoes or ears appear. Even his name or initials in unusual places may qualify as Hidden Mickeys. And don’t forget other characters: Hidden Minnies, Donald Ducks, Goofys, etc.

    Memories of a Magic Kingdom Press Agent Charles Ridgeway Window
    An official “Disney Legend,” Charlie Ridgway first saw Disneyland before it opened, when he snuck a kid under the fence for a feature story he was writing for a local paper. A few years later, he hired on as a publicist for Disney and spent the next forty years cooking up ways to get “the Mouse” free publicity. For Donald Duck’s fiftieth birthday he trained fifty white Peking ducks to waddle behind Donald down Main Street USA. When the celebration was over, he got even more publicity by donating the “used” ducks to zoos across America. He helped open new Disney parks in Orlando, Paris and Hong Kong. Along the way he rubbed shoulders with presidents and princes, helped usher in the era of electronic newsgathering, and was on a first-name basis with every great journalist of the last half century. In this engaging and light-hearted memoir, Ridgway shares the special magic that makes Disney’s world universally beloved.

    101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World 101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World organizer pockets keep You have probably heard a few "interesting facts" about Walt Disney World over the years. Perhaps you've heard that the windows on the second story of the buildings on Main Street honor individuals of note in WDW history? Or that the company plane Walt used to survey the eventual WDW property from the air now lives at the studios park? It's all true... but these are only two of the interesting facts pointed out in my book, 101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World. And those are only two of the best-known examples. Many of these stories deal with much more obscure, yet equally interesting, pieces of history of the theme parks. It's a certainty that you haven't heard all these stories before!
