Milla Chatman from Disney Design Group has titled this pin "Ears To Epcot®." The pin features a stylized Mickey Mouse Ear Hat with Spaceship Earth inspired "tile" artwork. The "Epcot" logo is a pin-on-pin; while the dangle reads "Est. 1982 Walt Disney World®." In one ear, Mickey Mouse silhouettes feature the country flags of World Showcase. The other ear features the original Future World logos for Epcot®.
Milla's bio reads:
"The first time I came to Walt Disney World® at the age of five, I became a fan for life. After participating in the opening ceremonies for Epcot® as a high school student, I vowed I would work at Disney one day. Many years later, in 1995, I became a part of the magic and everyday I'm thrilled to work with all the creative people at the Disney Design Group. My inspiration for this hat came from my experiences during the opening of Epcot® and my continuing love of the theme park."
