Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat Gone But Not Forgotten

Today, Disney fans from around the world said goodbye to a iconic landmark in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Construction crews began tearing down Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat after the park closed last night and what is to replace it is still a mystery. This 122 foot tall structure was added back in 2001 and was the center piece to guests entering the park. It served as a beacon to guests entering the park as well as a stage at time to host performances of all types. The hat was designed to showcase Mickey’s magical sorcerer’s hat for the cult classic Disney movie, “Fantasia.” To this day Disney has not said how long it will take to fully remove the hat and there has not been any word on if the hat will be moved to any other part of the Walt Disney World Resort. This removal of such a iconic symbol is just one of many that Disney Hollywood Studios has encountered over the past year like the American Idol Experience, the Legend of Jack Sparrow and most recently the Studio Backlot Tour.
