Big changes are coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios over the next year but the most symbolic of which is the removal of the Sorcerer's Hat at the end of Hollywood Boulevard. When it was first installed in 2001 it was only meant as a temporary display, but quickly was adopted as the park's icon.
On January 7th the park will again take on the "Earful Tower" as its icon. The view at the end of Hollywood Boulevard will once again be the Chinese Theater. The pin store located inside the hat will be located to Sunset Boulevard.
This will be the first of many removals in the Studios as unclear plans for a Pixar Place expansion and Star Wars land begin construction. Keep checking back here for the latest.
