Mystery Solved: Kismet in Disney's Polynesian Lobby

While pin trading in Epcot last summer, I came across a pin I had never seen before. It was a classic Mickey head shape, but with an odd color scheme and design that I didn't recognize. I thought it looked really interesting, so I traded something for it and put it on my lanyard, intending to look it up online to find out what it was.

The next day, I was meeting family members in the Polynesian lobby before heading over to the Spirit of Aloha dinner show. We decided to take a few photographs in the beautiful Grand Ceremonial House, with the tropical foliage as a backdrop. There were some other guests taking a long time in the spot we wanted, so we reluctantly moved around to the other side of the lobby to look for a new photo spot. There was only one small area without a crowd, so we walked over to it to secure a spot for a few family photos. Just as my husband was about to start snapping pictures, something caught my eye. I looked down at the stone work on the floor...

...and spotted this incredible Hidden Mickey, which I never knew existed. It's now one of my favorites.
