Duke Energy and Walt Disney World officials announced details of the Mickey-shaped solar farm near Epcot this morning.

The five-megawatt solar farm is being called the Walt Disney World Solar Facility. It is visible from the air as a giant Mickey Mouse shape. It’s just off the east shoulder of World Drive, near its intersection with Epcot Center Drive. It’s just west of Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort.

The farm is about 22 acres, part of a 15-year agreement that allows Duke Energy to build, own and operate the farm on Disney’s land. In return, the farm will provide solar power to Walt Disney World.
