While I had some free time, without the family, on a recent Epcot trip, I decided to do some searching for Hidden Mickeys. I've never really been that into searching for Hidden Mickeys until recently. It's something I can really appreciate, having come from a building background and hiding my own things in all my projects. Needless to say, I'm still new to the hobby and not real "dialed-in" to finding them, just yet.
The one I did find, I nearly stepped on before noticing it. I was admiring a bonsai tree on the far right of the Japan pavilion (as you face the complex).
I turned around to head back down to the main walkway and noticed a small rock-bed to my left. Literally, at my feet was the hidden Mickey that I nearly missed, had it not been for my keen peripheral vision.
I looked the hidden Mickey up on the Hidden Mickeys Guide site and found one that is most probably the one, but surrounded by bushes and flowers. Apparently, this is a Cast Member created HM that may change location, within the same rock bed. Either way, it was fun to find my own hidden Mickey without help from the guide!
