MickeyBlog’s Hidden Mickey Scavenger Hunt at Gran Destino Tower!
Hidden Mickey Hunters, listen up. I’ve got a brand new Hidden Mickey hunt tailor made just for you! Let’s set one thing straight before we get started: Gran Destino Tower is worth a visit no matter the itinerary of your Walt Disney World trip. The beautiful new Tower features a grandiose lobby, a specialty coffee bar (more on that soon), and a brand new restaurant and lounge combo that offer sweeping views of the Theme Parks.
After the initial awe-factor of stepping into that unbelievably pretty lobby, Hidden Mickey aficionados will find themselves in the middle of one of the most Hidden Mickey-packed spots at Walt Disney World Resort…without even realizing it! I was so inspired by all of the hunting on my most recent visit that I decided to create the officially unofficial MickeyBlog Hidden Mickey Scavenger Hunt! Ready to play? Let’s get into it!
Hidden Mickey Scavenger Hunt
Level 1- LOBBY
There are many reasons to not rush through this grandiose lobby, but let’s focus on what we’re really here for. Over a dozen hidden Mickey’s are tucked away on the lobby level alone, and level one of the MickeyBlog Hidden Mickey Hunt starts right here!
Let’s start with the artwork that adorns the walls. There is at least one hidden Mickey in each of the murals throughout the lobby.
The lobby also features one of the coolest, most difficult to spot Hidden Mickey’s on Property. Keen-eyed Hidden Mickey Hunters will spot this Mickey hidden in plain sight within the Barcelona Lounge coffee bar’s mosaic. Look extra hard at the stained glass pattern and you might be able to spot it!
Level 2- HALLWAYS
As you make your way onto the guest floors of the Resort, keep your eyes peeled! Most hidden Mickey hunts send you searching in small condensed areas, but not at Gran Destino! This hunt is Resort-wide!
The colorful carpeting is loaded with hidden Mickey’s begging to be spotted. You can even take the hunt above floor level. Be sure to scan the paintings on the walls of the hallways too!
Level 3- GUEST ROOMS
So far, this Hidden Mickey scavenger hunt can be played by any visiting guest. If you’re staying at Gran Destino Tower though, you have access to play the final level of the MickeyBlog Hidden Mickey Scavenger Hunt…the in-room hunt!
I loved the surprise of finding hidden Mickey’s in the wallpaper of the guest rooms. Although Gran Destino Tower’s overall theme is much more tailored to a four-star hotel feel than a ‘Disney’ theme, the subtle Mickey Mouse touches throughout the Resort were a constant and fun reminder that I was in fact staying in the middle of The Place Where Dreams Come True!
As I was creating this scavenger hunt, I spotted no less than 62 hidden Mickey’s! So, that’s the score to beat! There are plenty of Mickey heads to be found throughout Gran Destino Tower…but this last one has me puzzled. I can’t decide if the adorable Mickey-shaped towel on the bed counts as an in-room Hidden Mickey, so I’ll leave that to you to decide.
