Disney Movie Secrets

By Kaye Nemec

Disney movies like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Aladdin are popular among kids and adults around the world. Their characters continue to come to life as Halloween costumes and at birthday parties and their hit songs are easily recognized (perhaps unwilling to admit it, most of us could probably sing at least one completely from memory).


But perhaps something that most Disney movie fans don’t know is that several of the movies have hidden secrets scattered throughout. If you do not own a copy of these movies, clips of the secrets can be found on You Tube. Several of the hidden secrets are not G rated and are not appropriate for Disney films and, therefore, not listed here.

The Little Mermaid

  • When King Triton enters the stadium to watch Aerial sing, the camera views him from behind. If you look in the bottom left corner of the screen, in the audience, you will find Goofy, Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.

The Lion King

  • Some people claim that when Simba lays down on the rock ledge at the end of the movie and dust flies out from underneath him the particles form the word “SEX” in the sky. Others claim this is a shout out to the special effects team that worked on the movie and it actually spells SFX.

Beauty and the Beast

  • As Gaston is being thrown from the ledge at the end of the movie skulls replace his pupils.

Hunchback of Notre Dame

  • Belle, Pumbaa and Alladin’s carpet make cameo appearances.

Snow White

  • In the movie, Snow White has brown eyes but in most of the merchandise she has blue eyes.

Monster’s Inc.

  • Jessie from Toy Story 2 appears at the end of the movie when Sulley returns Boo to her room – she picks her up and gives her to Sulley. The “Pizza Planet” truck from Toy Story makes subtle appearances in many Pixar films such as: Cars, A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, Monster’s Inc and WALL-E.

Lilo and Stitch

  • When Lilo wakes up Nani in her bedroom there is a Mulan movie poster on the wall.

  • 2. Kalie  |  May 4, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    You’re on top of the game. Tnahks for sharing.

  • 3. Rayne  |  May 23, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    In Tarzan, Miss Potts and Chip make an appearance at Jane’s campsite when the Apes come to visit.

  • 4. Megan  |  June 13, 2011 at 1:55 am

    In the Jungle Book, Baloo says, “shit, we need to get to a tree” while singing the bear neccesities. In Aladin you can find Pinochio, sabastion, & the beast. The dancing scenes are the same in Snow White, Robin Hood, The Jungle Book, & in The Aristocats. In HunchBack of Notre Dame, Frollo is sexually segestive towards Esmeralda, before leaving her in the church (and through out the entire movie as well…hes got a mega crush on her! Lol). Well, there’s a few funn facts for ya, and believe me…there are many maaany more! O.o;;

  • 5. Megan  |  June 13, 2011 at 2:01 am

    OH! And that mean cat from Cinderella was named Lucifer! Hahaha! I thought that was kinda funny! XD

  • 6. Jeanie  |  August 16, 2011 at 12:20 am

    “All good teenagers take off your clothes” from Aladdin when the genie is a bumblebee buzzing in aladdin’s ear. Listen closely with the volume loud.

    • 7. apple  |  May 14, 2013 at 8:08 pm

      what if it was genie giving aladdin “advice” hahahah “take off your clothes” is all i hear

  • 8. George  |  August 26, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    http://gyazo.com/fd2051bbcbaf601b1e8261661e0c5cc6.png On the opening scene of most Disney movies, there is a giant penis slapping us in the face.

  • 9. xoma  |  September 13, 2011 at 2:20 am

    I think this is one of the best ways to make some some secret on Disney movies also we can make some special effects on it by using new techniques and latest ideas of our own.

  • 10. sophia  |  November 19, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    You guys just try and make as much non sense as you can especially Jeanie

    • 11. doug  |  September 7, 2012 at 5:02 am

      No I think you are delusional and can’t comprehend what is going on in our world.

  • 12. Al  |  January 31, 2012 at 1:57 am

    The reason you see the characters from other movies in certain movies is because…Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story, etc all came from one writer!

    Just like you can see the word Tron hidden in Transformers three.

    I could tell you a lot more if you wish. The writer is the most prolific screenplay writer of all time, with movies from the eighties till now and beyond.

    Think, Avatar The Last Airbender and Avatar the JC. version are from the the same writer.

  • 13. danni  |  March 12, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    I believe Pumba makes an appearance in Tarzan II.

  • 14. teenagetudorfreak  |  March 24, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    In Aladdin, when Jafar is bored and stacking up toys, near the top there is a figurine of the Beast from Beauty and the Beast.

  • 15. Clarissa  |  April 10, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    The number A113 (first seen as the license plate on Andy’s car) appears in almost every Pixar movie (and Mission: Impossible 4, which was directed by Brad Bird of Pixar fame).

    • 16. Brittany  |  September 20, 2012 at 3:00 am

      the reason for that is because they used the animation studio room number from pixar….just saying.

  • 17. Cheyenne  |  April 27, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Buzz Lightyear is in the toy chest at the dentist office in Finding Nemo

  • 18. Cheyenne  |  April 27, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Ohh and another one is in Olive And Company, some of the dogs from Lady and the Tramp, and I think 101 Dalmations are in there at the begining when Dodger sings.

    • 19. Shaybrew  |  April 1, 2014 at 1:50 am

      Actually– none of this is nonsense. Especially not Jeanie. I’ve heard it and known about it since 1994. See for yourself… Then feel ridiculous for discounting it right away with nothing to back your statement.
      Each department likes to fool around and leave their own inside joke/mark on the movies.
      True story.

  • 20. Nick  |  May 1, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Scar is on Hercules head when is he having a statue made.

    • 21. The Doctor  |  December 9, 2013 at 9:41 pm

      It’s actually when the artist is painting him, but yes Scar is in Hercules.

  • 22. brandon lee  |  May 10, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    Disney has a lot of subliminal messages because they are part of the ilumanati.And the ilumanati controls almost the whole world look it up in youtube!It’s kind of scary so… yeah-.-

    • 23. doug  |  September 7, 2012 at 5:03 am

      People aren’t smart enough to find out the truth Brandon.. Don’t give fools that much credit lol ;)

    • 24. Angel Garcia  |  November 17, 2012 at 9:23 am

      Yeah brandon im with you 100 % but like doug said ppl are to stupid to see whats right infront of them. The chips are out dont except them.

  • 25. dylan  |  June 10, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    on the original cover of the little mermaid look on the castle and there is a penis drew on it

    • 26. Brittany  |  September 20, 2012 at 3:02 am

      yeah you try being a guy and drawing ariel for a year and see if you put a dick somewhere hahaha

    • 27. Wendy  |  November 22, 2012 at 1:01 am

      There is more than just one, but several. I know I have the original case.

  • 28. dylan  |  June 10, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    oh and this is a little off centered. but if you watch the wizard of oz just after they talk after finding the tin man. before it fades to black look over by the tree’s you will see what looks like a bird. that is actually a munchkin that commited suicide

    • 29. Brittany  |  September 20, 2012 at 3:03 am

      thats a rumor. the producers themselves said that it was a bird. geez.. if it was real they wouldve took that out.

      • 30. taco_time  |  March 11, 2013 at 8:20 pm

        in the dvd version they edited it to look like a bird but if u watch the origanal its clearly a munckin!

    • 31. Emy Peluso  |  March 9, 2013 at 9:02 pm

      it wasnt a munckin it was the writer that hung himself

  • 32. Angie  |  June 23, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    if you watch Toy Story 3, the kid in the beginning is Sid from Toy Story (the kid who blew up toys) he is the garbage man. and Boo is in one of the classrooms wearing a pink headband and pink shirt.

  • 33. Amanda  |  July 14, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    In ariel the castles towers are shaped loke penis’s

  • 34. Gracie  |  July 19, 2012 at 2:48 am

    There are a bunch more! The dogs shadow in Ratatouille is Doug from Up, Mike from Monsters Inc and Mr. Incredible show up in Finding Nemo, and Sid from Toy Story is the garbage man in Toy Story 3.

  • 35. Jessie Gittins  |  July 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    A couple that were left out: in Aladdin: when the sultan is stacking his toys before jafar slams the door and makes the tower fall, you can see that one of the toys is the beast(beauty and the beast). Also, in tarzan, you can see in the camp right before the apes start playing music, mrs. Potts and some cups(including chip) are sitting on a table.

  • 36. doug  |  September 7, 2012 at 5:04 am

  • 37. Brittany  |  September 20, 2012 at 3:05 am

  • 38. jackparker  |  October 19, 2012 at 1:14 am

    what are some movies that are good for kids with the right message and over all innocence.

  • 39. Alvilda745  |  October 27, 2012 at 10:58 am

    In Aladdin he holds up a rug right around when he gets attacked by a hoard of girls and meets Meg for the second time, the rug is Scar from the Lion King.

    In Ratatouille WALL-E is driving a truck in the end of the movie.

  • 40. Jenn  |  October 28, 2012 at 6:33 am

    In Aladdin, when Rajah the tiger is turned back into a full grown tiger at the end of the film, for one frame his face turns into that of Mickey Mouse. It is impossible to when watching the film normally, but I paused it and it is actually there.

  • 41. Bridget  |  December 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    In The Little Mermaid, the king and his advisor from Cinderella attend the wedding of Eric to Vanessa.

  • 42. Chavae  |  January 3, 2013 at 9:52 am

    In the movie sleeping beauty when the prince and Aurora are dancing if you look in “their” reflection of the water it is actually Ariel and her prince dancing.

    • 43. Caroline Gorham  |  February 22, 2013 at 2:39 am

    in beauty and the beast, when the town is singing “Belle” at the start, belle is reading the book beauty and the beast.
    she mentions magic spells and a prince in disguise when talking about it and then her favourite part is “when the she meets prince charming but she won’t discover that it’s him ’till chapter three” you see the page and there is a picture of a girl in a blue dress and a beast in human clothes
