To celebrate Mickey's 75th Birthday, 75 individual life-sized statues of Mickey have been created. The artistic display is in the front of the Magic Kingdom at and around the entrance.

The statues are approximately 6 feet tall and weigh more than 700 pounds. They were created by a wide variety of folks including Disney Legends, artists, actors, musicians and athletes.

They will remain at the Magic Kingdom through April 2004. After that, they will tour cities around the US and Disneyland in California. Sotheby's will auction every statue in 2005 with proceeds benefiting charities chosen by each artist.
