Disney Imagineers started the hidden secrets and meanings in symbolism in late 1970s and early 1980s as Epcot was being designed at Walt Disney World. Epcot would be a more adult oriented theme park. There would be no Disney characters and alcohol would be sold. Mickey Mouse and adult drinks just didn’t mix well, the company decided.

But the creative Imagineers had ideas of their own. They secretly included hidden Mickey Mouse profiles in the various design elements in the park. A tradition began and the popularity of hidden meanings expanded outside of Epcot, the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios (viewed from the sky, it is one giant Hidden Mickey) and other Disney attractions.
