18 Awesome Disney Easter Eggs You Need to Know About

Fact: We never get tired of watching Disney movies. Watching them over and over inevitably means we start noticing the clever little references and inside jokes that Disney animators hide for us eagle-eyed fans to find. We pored through our favorite Disney animated classics to bring you these Easter eggs—some well-known, and some that blew our minds:

 

Hercules

One day you’re overthrowing the king, the next day you’re a throw rug. Textbook case of karma, or ironic reminder to be prepared? You decide.

 

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Call him Mr. Gargoyle.

 

One Hundred and One Dalmatians

We’re not surprised that ladies and tramps are among the many dogs wandering the streets of London.

 

Beauty and the Beast

Take a close look at the signs, and imagine what a different movie it would be if Belle had to save Maurice from Valencia (home to CalArts, where many Disney Animators studied), or Anaheim (home, of course, to The Happiest Place on Earth).

 

The Fox and the Hound

How did Squirrel-Wart get all the way from Camelot to the forest where Widow Tweed leaves Tod?

 

Frozen

We like to imagine that all the Disney Princesses are best friends, and Rapunzel and Flynn’s appearance at Elsa’s coronation only confirms this in our minds.

 

A Goofy Movie

We know you’re a huge Powerline fan—and you’re not alone. Even Mickey Mouse wants to stand out above the crowd.

 

Tangled

We’re hoping Rapunzel’s usual morning line-up doesn’t include “prick finger on an enchanted spinning wheel and fall into a sleep-like death.”

 

The Great Mouse Detective

Appearing as an adorable bubble toy is one of Dumbo’s many talents.

 

Lilo & Stitch

The Little Mermaid

We bet the King and Grand Duke from Cinderella had a hard time choosing a wedding gift for Prince Eric and Vanessa. Seriously, what do you get the sea witch who has everything?

 

Meet the Robinsons

Goob is clearly dreaming of watching The Jungle Book.

 

The Princess and the Frog
