51 . . .

I’ve shared my review of Steven Barrett’s Hidden Mickey Guide before. Gracie adores this book!  She will definitely be taking the time to search for Hidden Mickeys on our next trip.  I’m sure she’ll either be armed with the book or a detailed list of the places she wants to look (or both – she is her mother’s daughter, after all!) 

The other day, I got some neat information regarding the Hidden Mickey book series.  They are now available as e-books!  So, if you have an e-reader, tablet, or Kindle app for your iPhone, you can take these books with you wherever you go (without having to tote along another thing!)  Check this out:

The Search for Hidden Mickeys Goes Digital

Best selling guidebook now available in a variety of ebook formats

(ORLANDO, FL) — Visitors to Walt Disney World can now search for hidden Mickeys using their Kindles, iPads, or smart phones.

The publisher of Steven M. Barrett’s book, Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide To Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets, has made the fifth edition of the best-selling guide available in a variety of digital formats. The book recently made its debut on Amazon’s list of Top Ten Florida ebooks.

For the uninitiated, hidden Mickeys are partial or complete images of Mickey Mouse concealed throughout the parks’ attractions, restaurants, shops, and resorts. What began as an inside joke by Disney’s Imagineers and designers has become a major activity of visitors to “the Happiest Place on Earth” and a passion for more than a few of them.

Barrett’s book provides clues to Mickey’s hiding places and families and friends team up to search them out, competing for points in the process. There is also a section of hints for those who need extra help in their search.

The ebook version takes full advantage of the electronic format, providing hyperlinks from the clues to the hints and back again. And because ereaders allow users to search for any ride or attraction, there’s no need for an index.

The newest edition of Hidden Mickeys documents more than 1,000 hidden Mickeys. Author Barrett has spent more than 10 years exploring the parks in search of the elusive mouse. To his loyal fans, he’s known as The Hidden Mickey Guy and he has made it his mission to personally search out and document each and every hidden Mickey. Barrett maintains updated information on everything related to the mouse hunt at HiddenMickeyGuy.com.

Both the paperback and ebook versions of Hidden Mickeys are published by The Intrepid Traveler, a publisher of travel books located in Branford, Conn. Information on their other titles can be found at www.intrepidtraveler.com/store.

That could be trouble.  I would spend more time looking for Hidden Mickeys than riding rides.  Have you ridden a ride over and over to try to find a Mickey?  I am still trying to find one in Soarin' in the hot air balloon scene.
