Mickey Mouse sure is cocky these days ... especially when it comes to phallic images at Disney World.
You're looking at the doors to the restrooms at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe' in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando ... doors that even Rorshach would have to admit bear a striking resemblance to giant green penises.
Of course, Disney has become notorious for sneaking alleged pervy images into a bunch of Disney movies ... including the penis castle in "Little Mermaid" and the word "sex" appearing in "Lion King."
No word if this wang-ish image was intentional or not ... but either way, now Pluto knows where to go if he's ever lookin' for a bone.

3/17/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who masterminded the "Bling Ring" robberies was arrested Friday ... after the skin specialist to the stars charged in a murder-for-hire plot dropped a dime on him.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Dawn DaLuise was interviewed by cops after she was arrested for allegedly attempting to hire a member of the Detroit Lions to kill the owner of a rival skin shop. During the interrogation she sang like a canary.
Our sources say Dawn told cops she was being harassed online by a man named Edward Feinstein -- who she claims posted several fake online personal ads under her name.
According to sources ... Dawn told cops Feinstein's roommate was none other than Nick Prugo -- and said he recently violated parole by traveling out of state without permission.
Law enforcement sources tell us after Prugo's name came up -- officials investigated information and arrested him on the violation.
Prugo is NOT accused of any involvement in the murder-for-hire plot.
He remains in jail with no bail.
I Reached Out To Jameis Winston
During Sexual Assault Case
3/17/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exonerated football star Brian Banks tells TMZ Sports he's now focused on becoming a life coach -- and last year contacted Jameis Winston to offer advice and encouragement when the FSU star was at the center of a sexual assault investigation.
Banks -- who spent 5 years behind bars for a rape he didn't commit -- wouldn't tell us what he and Winston talked about ... saying they made a pact to never discuss it. He also says privacy is the number one rule of life coach training.
Banks himself was a standout high school football player when he was accused of rape by a classmate. He was convicted and went to prison ... but his accuser later admitted she had lied and the conviction was overturned.
After his release from prison, Brian had a brief fling last year with the Atlanta Falcons ... but he says he's done with football for now. He wants to concentrate on life coaching and other projects -- including an upcoming movie about his life.
Winston seems to have been moved by Banks' story ... he recently posted one of Banks' speeches on his Twitter account.
Smokes Peace Pipe with Brooke Mueller
3/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There's nothing like a common enemy to unite enemies .... just ask Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller
The ex spouses -- who have been at war for months, with hideous superlatives thrown back and forth -- are "friends again" ... thanks to newly-minted arch villain Denise Richards.
Charlie and Brooke hosted a party for Bob and Max Saturday, and by all appearances got along great.
Charlie Sheen threw the shindig at his house for their twins' 5th birthday ... and planned it with Brooke and fiancee Brett Rossi -- it was very wholesome ... bounce house and all.
As you may recall ... Sheen and Mueller have been in a legal tug of war royale over custody ... Charlie accusing Brooke of screwing up the kids by doing drugs while she was pregnant.
Charlie is on a tear now against Denise because he feels she's not giving him enough access to their girls. Brooke hates Denise ... possibly because she's threatened that Denise has been the go-to mother when Brooke went in and out of rehab.
One big happy family.
While Bev Hills Mansion Shopping
3/17/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Diddy has zeroed in on a new Beverly Hills mansion -- but he needs to know HOW HARD CAN HE RAGE??? The mogul is asking the local homeowners' association about its party policies.
Bev Hills real estate sources tell us, Diddy is eying a $12 million 11,200 sq. ft. home in the city's gated Beverly Ridge area. But we're told he won't make an offer if he and his friends can't cut loose.
So, Diddy, if you buy the house anyone you invite in must first be cleared by gate security. If you're throwing a big party you need a valet service and security. And there are noise regs too.
The Homeowner's Ass'n is pretty flexible because lots of famous residents are known for their opulent shindigs.
As for the house itself, Keyshawn Johnson had it custom built in 2003, then sold it in 2004 to Paris Hilton's then-fiance Paris Latsis. When the house went back up for sale last year, we're told Kim Kardashian seriously considered buying it -- but ultimately settled on a nearby $11 million Bel Air mansion.
'Basketball Wives' Star
FINALLY HUNTED DOWN
Faces Jail In Deadbeat Dad Case
3/17/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The search is finally over for former NBA player Eric Williams ... because his deadbeat ass was tracked down in Jersey ... and now he could be sent to jail for ducking his baby mama, TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story ... 41-year-old Williams -- who also appeared on "Basketball Wives" -- has been on the hook for $24k in unpaid child support to the mother of his 13-year-old son since back in November, but he blew off a court order to pay up and then went M.I.A.
Well, now ... we've learned a process server finally found the guy in the Garden State and gave him a court summons to appear before a judge in April ... OR ELSE!!!!
FYI -- the "or else" means the judge could order a warrant for his arrest if he doesn't show ... which means he could find himself behind bars.
Choose wisely ...
'Magic City' Strip Club
Rival Strip Joint
Bitch Slapped By Judge
3/17/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A Chicago strip club just got schooled on how to spell L-O-S-E-R ... because a judge has ruled it can't use the name "Magic City" -- or any version ... no matter how it's spelled.
TMZ broke the story ... Atlanta's infamous "Magic City" strip club sued the Chicago joint for trying to jack the club's name that has become iconic in the rap world -- with regulars like Jay Z, Ludacris and Outkast.
A judge just ruled the ATL club has cornered the market on the name, ordering the Chi-town club to stop using the name Magic or any variation, including Majik, Majic, and Magik.
The Chicago owners are required to take out ads apologizing for confusing customers.
Ass-clapping ATL strip clubs ... accept no substitutions.

I'm Ready for My Jets Comeback
... If Jets Want Me Back
3/16/2014 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NY Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez says he's ready for battle -- telling TMZ Sports his shoulder feels great and he's focused on winning back his starting job ... if management keeps him around.
Sanchez was leaving a friend's birthday party at Katsuya in Hollywood this weekend when we asked him about the torn labrum in his throwing shoulder that ended his 2013 season.
"Shoulder feels great, already throwing and I'll be ready to go here soon," Sanchez says.
When asked how he would feel about leaving NYC to come play for a West Coast team, the former USC superstar smiled at the idea but says he's committed to NY ... at least for now.
"I do love the West Coast, but I'm a Jet for 2 more years at least on my contract," Mark said ... "I love being there. I love New York. I've had a ball there."
Sanchez says he felt like things were going great before the injury -- and believed he was solidifying his spot as the starter over Geno Smith -- but the injury screwed everything up.
As for his future, Sanchez seems to be realistic about the situation -- "I know management has some decisions to make in the next few days ... so we'll see what happens."
He adds, "Whatever happens, it'll be great."
Fantasia & Brandy
Ex-Publicist Claims Sony Fired Me 'Cause I'm Black
3/16/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Fantasia and Brandy have been caught in the middle of a racial war ... ignited by their former publicist who claims their music studio hates black people and that's why he lost his job.
Courtney Barnes -- a well-known publicist -- was hired by Fantasia a year ago, but fired days later. Barnes claims in his lawsuit her manager told him a V.P. at Sony hated him and wanted him gone.
Barnes claims he was told the V.P. came on so strong ... he threatened to screw Fantasia over if she didn't drop Barnes.
Now here's what Barnes says is the smoking gun. He claims in the lawsuit the Sony V.P. -- Sarah Dennison -- formed her opinion about Barnes based on hearsay that he had a reputation for "shady business practices."
Barnes insists in his lawsuit ... "shady business practices" is code for racism. He also claims the only interaction he ever had with her was a handshake on one occasion. So he says if she didn't know him, how could she form her opinion?
Barnes says the firing ruined his career, claiming it impacted Brandy's decision not to work with him ... based on Dennison trashing him to the singer.
Barnes is now suing Dennison and Sony Music for ruining his reputation and stressing him out. He claims he would have made $250K had he not been fired.
Sony says the whole thing is baseless.

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has some advice for "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul -- now that you're off the Denver bandwagon ... go be a Raiders fan!

'Party Down South'
Ends in Surrender!
3/16/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The South will apparently rise again -- "Party Down South" is coming back for Season 2 now that the cast is waving the white flag of surrender in its pay dispute ... TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... the "PDS" regulars were stonewalling ... refusing to work unless CMT paid them $7,500 an episode -- a hefty 1,400% pay raise from the paltry 500 bucks for Season 1.
But sources close to the show tell us ... CMT refused to budge -- even though "PDS" is the network's most successful show EVER.
We're told, the network is being hard-ass ... saying the cast signed a contract through season 2, so that's the way it is ... the network's way or the highway.
BUT ... CMT dangled a carrot, promising bigger paychecks in Season 3.
Note to cast: That's the oldest trick in the book.
