Hidden Mickey Monday ºoº - The Emporium's Mickey Murals

In 2011, The Emporium on Disneyland's Main Street reopened after a lengthy renovation. When the tarped facade finally disappeared, The Emporium emerged with several new Hidden Mickeys. Two of the Mickeys were carefully painted into murals most guests would probably overlook.

The murals are painted as displays behind one of the Emporium register counters. Located in the corner adjacent to Town Square & Main Street, the first mural features a flower trimmed hat and pink vase. Examine the subjects carefully to find a special snowglobe on a tiny table. 

Hidden within the snowglobe is Mickey Mouse, posed famously as the Sorcerer's Apprentice.

The second mural features a clock, ornate vase and three glass snowglobes.

All three globes seem to feature Disney themes, but the furthest one from the foreground contains the Hidden Mickey. Inspired by the partners statue, the globe with the pink base displays Walt & Mickey holding hands in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

That’s the side you simply can’t wait to share as a family. It’s the side of you that laughs more, screams more, says “yes” more and just plain lives life to the fullest. It’s the side of you that comes out to play the moment your family steps through the gates of a Disney Theme Park. So why wait? Share the magic right now and come show your Disney side!

Hidden Disneyland Details - Sparky's Empty Grave from Frankenweenie

Every Autumn, Disneyland's Haunted Mansion undergoes a whimsical transformation, becoming the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Inspired by Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Madame Leota and the mansion's 999 haunts open their eerie estate to the quirky ghouls from Halloween Town. Beginning in 2001, Jack Skellington has hosted the annual holiday overlay, a mishmash of the otherwise mismatched Halloween and Christmas holiday seasons.

A new Disney Detail has been added to this year's Haunted Mansion Holiday. In anticipation of Tim Burton's latest Disney project, the stop-motion animated Frankenweenie (2012), a special grave and marker have been added to the pet cemetery in the mansion's front garden.

Sparky's Empty Grave in front of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion

Though empty gravesites may not seem strange in a pet cemetery, or more specifically - Pet Sematary. This empty grave and bone shaped cross are tributes to Sparky, the four-legged star of Burton's Frankenweenie, which was released in theaters on October 5, 2012.

Ginnifer Goodwin, Self-Professed Disneyphile

During her September 26th appearance on the ABC Network's Jimmy Kimmel Live, actress Ginnifer Goodwin admitted to being a huge Disney fan. The vivacious Goodwin acknowledged that she's living out a childhood dream, by starring as Snow White on ABC's fairytale-inspired Once Upon A Time. The real life Disney Princess is a frequent park visitor, sharing a few of her favorite (and not-so-favorite) Disneyland attractions.

 

The self-professed Disneyphile also gushed about her membership to the exclusive Club 33, secretly located in Disneyland's New Orleans Square. Goodwin acknowledged the restaurant's extremely limited membership and extensive waiting list. It seems odd that the star of a Walt Disney Company production would have several difficulties just getting a dinner reservation, let alone a club membership.

Its great to hear that the actress entrusted with portraying Disney's first princess, is at heart, a true Disney fan. The next question, does Ginnifer Goodwin know about Hidden Mickeys?
