Now, everyone knows Disney and Pixar put A LOT of easter eggs in their films. Whether it's the famous A113 code in every Pixar film or Nemo in Monsters, Inc., Disney is well-known for putting in special treats in their films. So here they are: 10 amazing easter eggs in Disney movies.

10. Mike and Mickey in Frozen

Okay, I just want to make this clear first and foremost. I absolutely hate it when people fangirl all over this movie because of one catchy song and an average plot. Come on. This movie was very average. And an average movie gets their own snow cone machine.


Man, that is sick.

But there are easter eggs in it. At one point, Anna walks into Wandering Oaken's Trading Post since she fell into a river (which really should have been frozen). We then see Mike Wazowski on the counter from Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University.

You can't really see it.

But we also see Mickey Mouse in there, too.

9. King Triton's Guests in 'The Little Mermaid'

At the beginning of The Little Mermaid (which, on a side note, was released five days before Back to the Future: Part II), we see King Triton and Sebastian make a grand entrance in front of an audience of mermen, mermaids, and some other familiar faces. This includes Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy.

We also see Kermit, and less people are aware of this.

8. Sleeping Beauty's Spinning Wheel

In Sleeping Beauty, the princess pricks her finger on the spindle of her spinning wheel, which put her in a deep sleep. She is trapped by an evil witch. And this spinning wheel also appeared in Rapunzel's tower in Tangled, where Rapunzel is trapped by an evil witch.

7. 'Wreck-It Ralph' Cameos

In one wide shot of Game Central Station in Wreck-It Ralph we can see Vladimir, one of the thugs, and Maximus, the horse, in Tangled.

We can also see Tiny the T-Rex from Meet the Robinsons on the right.

6. Rapunzel and The Little Mermaid in 'The Princess and the Frog'

In The Princess and the Frog, at one point, we get a very quick glimpse of Tiana's shelf. And on the shelf, we see "Rapunzel," a reference to Tangled, which came after the film.

And three books next from that, we see The Little Mermaid.

5. Olaf in Big Hero 6

Now, THIS was actually a GOOD movie.

This is Disney's first animated film after Frozen and they had to put in some references to that. For example, when Hiro and Baymax are flying around San Fransokyo, for a split second, we see a statue of Olaf the snowman.

If you haven't seen this, it is MUCH better than Frozen.

Seriously. People say that this is the only Disney movie that showed princesses didn't need a prince to save them. What about Merida from Brave? What about Mulan? Geez, there was nothing I absolutely LOVED about Frozen.

4. Kristoff's Boogers

In one scene in Frozen, Kristoff says that all men pick their noses and eat their boogers. And then during the credits, we see this:

The views and opinions expressed by Kristoff in the film that all men eat their own boogers are solely his own and do not necessary reflect the views or opinions of The Walt Disney Company or the filmmakers.


3. Andy's Postcard

I've bought this up before in my "Who is Emma Jean?" and "Carl is Crazy" posts. In Toy Story 3, we see Andy's bulletin board and we see a postcard addressed to Carl and Ellie Fredricksen in Up.

2. Nemo was in 'Brother Bear' the same year 'Finding Nemo' was released

At one point in Brother Bear, a bunch of salmon are knocked into a river. And I don't know how anyone caught this, but when they fall in, we can see that there is a clownfish among them.

So, Nemo WASN'T at P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney?

We better have a callback to that in Finding Dory.

1. 'Mulan' Poster

At one point in Lilo and Stitch, we can see a Mulan poster.

There you go!
