Traci C. (NDM#118) (37 Posts)

Traci was born and raised in Ohio, but has been visiting Walt Disney World since she was 18 months old (in 1974)!! She has always had a special place in her heart for all things Disney, but especially loves Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and her favorite princess - Cinderella. Traci spent her childhood visiting the Magic Kingdom for just one day every summer (her grandparents lived in Tampa, Fla.). It wasn't until 2003 that she finally was able to stay "on property" .. and now visits at least once a year (more if she's lucky). The family's favorite resort - Beach Club. The love of Disney runs deep in Traci's house - her daughters love all things Disney and are always looking for "hidden Mickeys" (and both been counted as NDKs). And her husband? Well, he's almost as Disney-obsessed as the girls. One of these days the family hopes to make the move south to be closer to The Mouse (and away from the cold, snowy Ohio winters).

The theme for the 2005 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival was fun – there were 50 “hidden Mickeys” scattered throughout the park, and it was our mission as guests to find each and every one of them.  Well, I didn’t find ALL of them – I think I ended up with 46, which is not bad considering all the nooks and crannies there are in EPCOT to hide things!  Some were pretty obvious, while others took patience and a keen eye to be able to detect.  I found this one in the bottom of a “backyard pond” that had been set up near Mission: Space.  I nearly passed it right by because the water was reflecting the sun so brightly, but there’s a big tree over there that cast some momentary shade and suddenly – there it was.
