Well, THIS Is Not Where We Expected To See a Hidden Mickey in Disney World Today!

It’s so much fun checking out all the hidden details that Imagineers put into everything at Disney World.

Hidden Mickey on the lawn at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

We’ve seen everything from glowing pathways to little Remy figures in benches to LOADS of Hidden Mickeys. But today, we found a Hidden Mickey where we least expected it — IN OUR FOOD!

We decided to take a break today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so we headed over to The Market to grab one of our favorite snacks, a Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num. While we sat down and enjoyed a little time off our feet, we noticed something odd about our cookie.

Hmmm….do you see it?

Our cookie had a Hidden Mickey on it! Three of the chocolate chunks in the cookie formed a Hidden Mickey. Although this (probably) wasn’t intentional, it just goes to show that there are Disney details EVERYWHERE. It’s all part of the Disney magic!

Our cookie has a Hidden Mickey!

So be sure to keep an eye on your food the next time you’re in Disney World because you never know when you might spot a Hidden Mickey. Or, if you’re like us…you’ll just arrange your dishes on the table into a Hidden Mickey.

Spot the hidden Mickey?

Oh, c’mon — we know we’re not the only ones who do that! We’ll take a Hidden Mickey any way we can get it because it always puts a smile on our face.

Anyways, stay tuned, and we’ll share even more Hidden Mickeys with you, along with all the latest Disney news!

Forget Disney’s Star Wars Hotel — You Can LIVE in a Star Wars House (Well, For $11.5 Million)

We have a long wish list of Disney-inspired homes we would love to live in.

We want to live in a castle!

We loved the Haunted Mansion airbnb, as well as the California home designed by a Disney Imagineer and an actual castle of a home near Disney World. But we might have just found the most EPIC home of all — especially if you  happen to be a Star Wars fan.

Even better? This home is near Disney World — in Kissimmee, Florida! And this house looks pretty normal…

©Zillow

…well, if you call 15 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms normal, that is. And some of the rooms don’t seem THAT spectacular (okay, well, they ARE pretty nice…but just wait…).

©Zillow

Okay, so what’s so special about this home? Well, things start getting interesting when you start looking at some of the bedrooms, including this one that looks like a room of bunks in a spaceship straight out of Star Wars.

©Zillow

Did we mention that this room has its own replica DROID FACTORY?

©Zillow

One of the rooms features a life-sized Rey figure to watch over you while you sleep…. . 😳

©Zillow

How about this view that would please Queen Amidala?

©Zillow

And Baby Yoda is just getting his zen on in the corner.

©Zillow

Another area gives us serious Rise of the Resistance vibes!

©Zillow

And — OF COURSE — there’s Han Solo in Carbonite — so THAT’S Where Jabba kept him.

©Zillow

The details in this house are AMAZING.

©Zillow

We wonder if the buttons on this console actually do anything.

©Zillow

Imagine getting up in the middle of the night and having to face Darth Vader on the way to the bathroom! Also, CUE THE IMPERIAL MARCH MUSIC. But, seriously, we don’t think he’d be a great roommate… .

©Zillow

So if you dream of living in the ultimate Star Wars house, this home could be yours for a cool $11.5 million (we never said it was cheap!). According to Zillow, the home is also equipped throughout for Laser Tag — no, REALLY!

And if we spot any other cool Disney and Star Wars-inspired homes, we’ll let you know!

See another incredible Disney-inspired house here!

PHOTOS: Right Track Goes Extinct at Primeval Whirl As Demolition Continues at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

primeval-whirl-demolition-10-23-21_15

Primeval Whirl has been closed officially for over a year now and the demolition is well underway at the attraction in Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Last week, we saw the façade beginning to be dismantled and the lift hill was taken down at the beginning of the month. Let’s take a look at where the project sits today. Being such a large footprint in such a small area of Dinoland, USA means that the construction site […]
