Forget Hidden Mickeys – the new game is spotting Hidden Fees!

With the revelation over the past few weeks that the Walt Disney World Resort will begin charging resort guests for driving their cars out of the parking lot, and last week’s exposé on these pages of new hidden fees Disney is charging throughout the World, we thought, “Hey, if we’re going to be paying these anyway, why not make a game of it?”
