Fun for Older Kids and Teens

Here is a great pre-trip scavenger hunt for the older set.

Ask your preteen/teen to go online and "Google" "Hidden Mickey." They can read all about the history of how these illusive creatures began turning up and where to look for them. This could turn into a great trip-long scavenger hunt for the digital camera/cell phone set. They can try to spot the known and unknown cheese eaters all over the parks. It also helps to pass the time away while online for attractions. Disney does sell a comprehensive book on the topic, but fans on the Web have many of their own ideas on the subject. It is a project to get older kids involved prior to the trip, and fun to share with the entire family!

For those interested in the book, it costs about $10 US and is called "Hidden Mickeys:A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets." You can buy it at Amazon.com or at Disney World.

Shhh, Mom and Dad ~ A hidden Mickey is a partial or complete impression of Mickey Mouse placed by the Imagineers and artists to blend into the designs of Disney attractions, hotels, restaurants, and other areas. The most common Hidden Mickey form is the tri-circle Mickey frontal silhouette: three circles that form Mickey’s round head and adjoining round ears. There's lots more on the Web or in the book.
