•THIS APPLICATION IS FOR DISNEY WORLD IN FLORIDA. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR DISNEYLAND IN CALIFORNIA, CHECK OUT OUR OTHER APP "HIDDEN MICKEYS: DISNEYLAND"•
There's an extra special way to enjoy Walt Disney World and this app is your guide. Hunting for "Hidden Mickeys" (images of Mickey Mouse cleverly concealed in WDW's theme parks, restaurants, hotels, and other areas by Disney artists and designers) is fun for all and a bona fide vacation mission for many Disney World fans.
Serving as the OFFICIAL application to Steven Barrett’s bestselling book “Hidden Mickeys – A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets,” the mouse hunt is taken to a whole new level of interactivity with this application for iPhone and iPod Touch!
Utilizing GPS tracking [iPhone only], your location is scanned and immediately lists the closest Hidden Mickeys to you. If you’re not in the parks, or if you’d rather scroll through the different locations, you are able to browse categorized lists of each Hidden Mickey location. Keep track of which Mickey’s you find with an easy to use built-in scoring system. Keep in mind – this is a scavenger hunt! The score counts if you want it to, so do your best and try to use the least amount of hints as possible.
Whether you’re playing solo or with the whole family, you are able to keep separate user profiles to keep track of everyone’s progress. Spanning all four parks and documenting over 800 Hidden Mickeys, this application will add a whole new level of entertainment to your trips to Disney World!
In this application you'll discover well over 800 Hidden Mickeys throughout various locations at the Walt Disney World Resort including:
• Magic Kingdom Park
• Disney's Hollywood Studios
• Animal Kingdom
• Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon Water Parks
• Downtown Disney
• EPSN Wide World of Sports
• Miniature Golf Courses
• Over 20 DIFFERENT Disney Hotels
PLUS: tips, hints and author Steven Barrett's very own favorite Hidden Mickeys. We've also included the use of Game Center, which allows you gain achievements while playing! We've even hidden a few of these that can only unlock from certain places inside the park - can you get them all?
True to their name, Hidden Mickeys are elusive. New ones appear from time to time and some old ones disappear. When that happens — and it will — Steve will let you know on his web site: www.HiddenMickeysGuide.com. Periodically, the application will be updated to reflect these changes, becoming your best source for all things Hidden Mickeys!
“Hidden Mickeys” is based off of the newest and most comprehensive edition of the book. “Hidden Mickeys – A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets” 5th edition was released in August 2011 and can be found for sale throughout Disney World, in stores, or online at Amazon.com.

Lost my findings
Went last year and recently upgraded phones. Noticed my hidden mickeys had been wiped.
I suggest using the iCloud APIs so that it is easy to use between devices and restore info. For example I enter one on my iPhone and can view it later on my iPad.
Edit: no iPad landscape support and not iPhone 5 optimized. Last update was 9/12 -- not a good sign!
This is the type of app that one would imagine needs fairly constant updating. For example there have been new attractions and park areas added since 9/12.
Would be cool to be able to take pictures of mickeys found and have linked to an account and uploaded (with private or shared setting options) in addition to being saved to camera roll.
After trip one could then go through the photos of their mickeys streamed into the app if they have removed the pictures from their phone.
Additionally would be cool if there was some ability to crowd source data, share the pictures as hints (could be good for people having trouble), add new mickeys, etc. -- basically use the people using the app to improve its data.
Good luck. Generally it's good, had fun using it as it was helpful, just has a lot of room to grow.
Great but I have a few questions
I purchased this app for an upcoming trip to WDW. I looked for Hidden Mickeys at Disneyland and thought it would be fun to look for them in FL.
I was hoping there would be Hidden Mickeys for New Fantasy land included but do not see any. Will those be a part of an update later?
I am also having some problems viewing the hints on my iPad. I know what it says to do and am following the instructions but I am still unable to view them. If someone has any insight into that I would greatly appreciate any help.
Even with those small inconveniences, I'm looking forward to using the app on my trip in March. I think it will be a lot of fun to look for the many HMs with my family, not to mention it will be a great way to pass the time while waiting in line :)
I love this app! It's very convenient to carry along when hunting for Hidden Mickeys. However, it needs some updates! Some things to include...
• The new fantasyland! On the website, I noticed some new discoveries there. Please include them in the app!
• I heard that test track in Epcot has been changed. I haven't visited it yet,
but if there are new Mickeys, I want to know!
• The Snow White ride doesn't exist anymore! Please remove it!
• I would love if the clues were in order, like in the book. I hate having to ride the attractions more than once because the clues are scattered!
Thanks so much! I love hunting for Mickeys, and this app would be a zillion times better with these suggestions!
