Mickey: In Yellow

As part of the 2003 celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 75th anniversary, celebrities and high-profile Disney personalities were asked to design a single Mickey statue. The event was known as Celebrate Mickey: 75 InspEARations, and each statue used the same well known Mickey Mouse pose as a canvas to create their own unique work of art. The collection of statues then toured the country.

After the tour ended, the Mickey statues each had to find a new home away from life on the road. Today, this statue designed by Rosie O’Donnell calls Team Mickey Athletic Club in the Downtown Disney Marketplace home. The name of this statue is Mickey: In Yellow, it stands at six feet tall and weighs in at over a whopping seven-hundred pounds. Seems like Mickey may want to cut back on the camembert!

I have a picture of my daughter dressed as Snow White (after visiting the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique) standing next to this Mickey!
