Show # 390 Blast from the Past: Hidden Mickey Guy, Steve Barrett

Join us this week for one of our favorite shows and from so long ago.  We had Steve Barrett AKA The Hidden Mickey Guy on Show #43 and it was a very fun interview.  Steve has published a Disney recognized book(s) of Hidden Mickey's that can be found around the parks.  His books have been sold in the Disney Parks and even the ships.  

Hidden Mickeys are a fun way to keep the family into all of that touring that we do.  "A Hidden Mickey can take different forms. The most common image is the tri-circle Mickey frontal silhouette: three circles that form Mickey’s round head and adjoining round ears. Other images include a side or oblique (usually three-quarter) profile of Mickey’s face and head, a side profile of his entire body, a full-body frontal silhouette, a detailed picture of his face or    body, or a three-dimensional Mickey. Sometimes, just his gloves handprints, shoes or ears appear. Even his name or initials in unusual places may qualify as Hidden Mickeys."

Posted by TheDisneyNerdsPodcast in , , entertainment, Disney, Ed, Animal Kingdom, rivers of light

Hello and welcome to Show # 249 of the Disney Nerds Podcast.  This week we take a look at Disney Animal Kingdom's Rivers of Light night time show.  This was added in 2017 as an addition to the new night time entertainment that Disney was adding to the Animal Kingdom.  We recently saw the show and here is our recording from that night.  Sam and Ed with both families at Rivers of Light.  FYI, based on my reaction, I did a little homework and discuss some of the story behind the show.  Headphones if possible.  Total stereo.

Thanks for Listening!
