    Anyone else wish we'd get an updated Mickey?

    Floral Mickey that is. His shape isn't very accurate.

    They shouldn't. Even with all the changes at Disneyland throughout the years, the Foral Mickey has always remained the same. It is iconic and has withstand the test of time.

    I believe this is what it looks like now. More of a vintage look but, imo, not in a good way.

    Or put a mask on him during Halloween.

    Actually, he has been updated very subtly over the years. I think he looks fine.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Re: Anyone else wish we'd get an updated Mickey?

    Remember the brief period of time a couple years ago when they put sparkly pixie dust lighting throughout the floral Mickey that lit up at night? The Tinker Bell figure that now hangs on the sorcerer's hat in front of the Disneyland Hotel used to be positioned above the floral Mickey to "set off" the lights. I thought that was pretty cool and wondered why it was so short lived.

    I also liked when they filled the Mickey face with mini pumpkins for Halloween.

    They redo those flowers all the time, in the middle of the night every few weeks.
    I like how it looks, and most people who don't go all the time won't care if he looks slightly askew.
    I also love when its filled in with in with pumpkins!
    Little and broken, but still good.

    Re: Anyone else wish we'd get an updated Mickey?

    I feel like both of the pictures above were taken at higher angles than the floral mickey was meant to be viewed at, and that's why they look strange. Isn't there some forced perspective going on when being viewed at ground level?

    The current mickey has a chin of some sort that he didn't have before. He also has eyebrows and big bulges at his cheeks. It just doesn't look like how Mickey is usually depicted. The old one looks more like the mickey we know. I guess the current one more resembles the costume mickey that wanders the park.

    In fact, Mickey has changed several times over the years.
