A hat worn by Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins, recently discovered by the Walt Disney Archives. This black straw hat with faux cherries and flower blossoms was featured in the film as part of Mary’s instantly recognizable “traveling costume.”

A “Duckster” award. Created in 1952, this bronze-colored award in the image of Donald Duck honored those who made significant contributions to Disney over the years. Notable recipients include Clarence Nash (the original voice of Donald Duck) and Donald Duck comic artist Carl Barks. Roy Disney even presented one to Walt Disney, who proudly displayed it in his office.
