Mickey Mouse Cap

Ten year old Amelia Liebhold purchased this pair of Mickey Mouse ears as a souvenir from a trip to Walt Disney World in 1996. The Disney theme park located in Orlando, Florida is one of the most popular American vacation destinations and the iconic cap is a top selling item. Mickey Mouse ears first appeared in association with the 1950s children’s TV show, the Mickey Mouse Club.
The cap memorializes the 25th anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World with a special logo. The front of the cap has a red star inside a white circle with an image Sorcerer Mickey and “Walt Disney World/25” written below. The back of the ears is personalized with the name “Amelia” embroidered in silver thread.
