Sorcerer Mickey Hat to be removed at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Confirmed by www.mynews13.com

“It’s time to say goodbye to a Walt Disney World icon: The 122-foot-tall Sorcerer’s Hat will be removed from Disney’s Hollywood Studios in early 2015.

Walt Disney World spokesman Bryan Malenius confirmed Hollywood Studios would be removing its hat early next year, but would not say whether anything would take its place, or if the plan is to restore the once-clear view of the replica of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre that houses the Great Movie Ride as guests enter the theme park.

According to our sources, as the theme park crowds thin after the New Year, the construction walls will rise. Those walls may be up in time for or shortly after Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, which runs from January 7–11, 2015.

The 122-foot-tall Sorcerer’s Hat has stood in the center of Disney’s Hollywood Studios since 2001, when it replaced the Earful Tower as the theme park’s official icon.

Earlier in October, our partners at Orlando Attractions Magazine reported the possibility of the Sorcerer’s Hat being removed after noticing the hat’s absence from a map of Hollywood Studios inside an updated Disney World brochure at area hotels.”
