Hat Height - The hat itself is 100 feet tall. Since it is resting atop the ears and canted to the side, the summit of the Icon will settle at 122 feet.

Icon Weight - 156 tons

Hat Weight (the brim and hat only, excluding the ears and support structure) - 27 tons

Foundation Concrete - If poured on a 1' depth, the amount of concrete in the base would cover an entire football field.

Hat Size (as wardrobe) - The hat is a size 605 and 7/8

Mickey Size (if he were to wear it) - For a proportional perspective, Mickey, wearing this hat, would be 350 feet tall. (Based off of scaling the real-life entertainment characters in the park)

Hat Paint (Chameleon Paint) - The hat is painted with a custom paint technique called "chameleon paint" which will cause the hat to shift in color as guests move closer and around it. We are using enough of this "automotive type paint" to cover 500 Cadillac's.

Mickey Ears (Light Ribbon) - The faces of the ears are new special effect called "Light Ribbons" (by Walt Disney Imagineering).
The ears will appear to change colors, surface shapes and sparkle with internal pixie dust lighting.
