    It's only fitting that solar panels that will help with the power needs of Walt Disney World are shaped like the famous ears of the mouse that started the Disney enterprise.

    Officials with Disney World, Duke Energy and Disney's private government on Tuesday flipped on the switch to a Mickey Mouse-shaped solar facility located on 22 acres near the Epcot theme park.

    The facility is made up of 48,000 solar panels and is operated by Duke Energy.

    Duke Energy will sell the energy to Disney's private government, Reedy Creek Improvement District.
