A trip to Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida just got a lot more colorful as the company has released a first-of-its-kind limited edition “Mickey Mouse Rainbow Love Hat.”

Of course, the company is notorious for supporting the LGBT community without actually saying it. Case-in-point, the popular annual “unofficial” Gay Days which isn’t publicized by the house of mouse, but happens in California in October. 

The limited edition topper is flying off the shelves at both U.S. locations, selling out at some stores in the parks and gift shops outside. More hats will be re-stocked as soon as the next shipment comes in. 

Vlogger Gio Spano put together a comprehensive video on his search for the souvenir at the Orlando location. Spano points out that you can also stitch your name on it with rainbow thread. 

“For all of those who decided to [make the rainbow hats] I say thank you," Spano says in the video. "And to the Walt Disney Company I say thank you very much for always setting the standard in leading the way and celebrating diversity amongst all of your employees around the world.”

The commemorative topper retails for $17.99.
