Once upon a time, there was a man named Walt Disney who dreamt about creating a magical park where children and grown-ups, alike, could laugh and play together. In 1955, Disney's vision was realized when the doors of Disneyland opened. Disneyland offered everything he had imagined from fairy tale castles to a land that featured marvels of the future.
In the same year, The Mickey Mouse Club premiered on television. Kids across America were so excited to watch the show on their black-and-white TV sets. They dreamed of the day that they could visit Disneyland and meet Mickey Mouse and the talented Mouseketeers in person! Reminiscent of an original Mouseketeer, Barbie doll sports a full pleated skirt, T-shirt, bobby socks, and of course, Mouseketeer ears. With attraction tickets (replicated from those used in the early days at the park) in hand, she is all ready for a day at the Disney Theme Parks.
Now - as then - one can stroll along Main Street, U.S.A. and enjoy delicious confections, try on a pair of Mouseketeer Ears or check out the coolest looks with their own Disney magic. Today Barbie Doll Celebrates 50 Years of the Disney Theme Parks with an anniversary fashion t-shirt and special edition, golden anniversary Mickey ears hat!
Walt Disney's dream lives on!
