Today Walt Disney World officials confirmed the rumor that has been around for years, the large Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is being removed from its current iconic location.
We recently reported on the hat being removed from the Hollywood Studios map in the “4 Parks of Fun Guide” that is distributed all around Central Florida. At the time, we weren’t sure if it was a printing error or on purpose. But Disney’s comment of “We have nothing to announce at this time,” led many to believe it wasn’t a printing error.
No date has been given to when the hat will be removed other than “early 2015.” There’s also no word if the hat will be replaced, destroyed or moved. Although many long-time fans of the park are happy about this news, other fans are still sad to see it go.
Also getting the axe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be The Legend of Jack Sparrow. The official Walt Disney World website lists the attraction as having its final day on Nov. 6, 2014.
