    Hidden Mickeys have got to be a secret that most new to Disney don't know about - buy them the guide and get them to look for them or the smartphone app there are lots now - it really enhances the holiday and takes you to places in the parks you wouldn't usually go to

    Oh and the paintbrushes on Tom Sawyer Island - not sure if they still do it , but if you find one they jump you to the front of the queue for Splash Mountain

    At Animal Kingdom:
    -Do the Kilimanjaro safari at different times of the day.
    -‘Pangani Forest Trail’: Avoid hottest time of day as gorillas will be asleep.

    Dining:
    -Compare lunch and dinner menus – often cheaper at lunch for same meal.
    -Many restaurants empty immediately before and during the parades.

    Shopping:
    -If you are in a Park during in an unexpected shower and you need an umbrella or poncho but cannot see them on display, ask at counter.

    Not really a secret but my favourite thing to do during any trip is to sit down on a bench for 1/2 an hour and watch the families and people go by - eat a mickey bar or have a dole whip while you are doing it but it is amazing to watch the groups of people go by all wrapped in their own tiny microcosms, often bouncing with excitement or arguing

    plus you get to rest your weary feet for a bit

    Not sure if it is confirmed but here is something on hiddend Mickeys:

    If you go to the Discovery Outreach Center (the learning center) in Innoventions East, they will give you the of Hidden Mickeys, just ask for it.
    REPORTED: Donna & Lisa 26 JUN 97
    It's true, the Discovery Center will give you the list. It's no where as complete as this page is though. They also have a whole lot of information available. Look through the binders and ask. Plus it's one of the few things in Disney that are still free.
    CONFIRMED: Matthew DeMizio 05 AUG 97

    If you ever find yourself in Atlanta, GA (say hi to catrancher ) and go to the Coke museum. They have a HUGE display of various flavors of Coke from around the world. They did have Beverly too. We were trying to get people to try it :tongue:
