It’s here! The date is finally here! We now know that The Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will begin to be dismantled starting on January 7. The park icon’s removal won’t happen overnight; instead it will happen in phases. This work will also include other important enhancements for the area as well.
For years, the Hat has also served as a pin store location. The merchandise from this shop will be relocated to Sunset Ranch. So for those of you looking for pins, make sure to head to Sunset Boulevard.
The iconic Hat which is located at the end of Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was introduced in 2001 as a part of the “100 Years of Magic” celebration, honoring Walt Disney’s 100th birthday and was initially supposed to be temporary.
It was officially announced that The Sorcerer’s Hat would be removed back in October.
