It seems everywhere you go at Walt Disney World these days you will find construction walls. Walt Disney’s philosophy was that his theme parks would never be finished. He said that they will “continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” Walt Disney World is changing daily with some new and exciting attractions, some much needed road work, parking garages, etc. One of the things that many disagreed on was the Sorcerer Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
There is either much rejoicing, or wailing that the hat is coming down in the Disney community. We are a split house here, I think it is kind of sad it is going away. My daughter is delighted the hat is going away. I do agree that the view down the street will return to the original classic look where you see Grauman’s Chinese Theater at the end of the street.
They have started taking down the hat. You only have a short time left if you want to get your picture with part of the hat. PhotoPass photographers are no longer taking pictures with the hat in the background. They are turning you around so the entrance is behind you.

It shouldn’t be too much longer until the Sorcerer Hat is just a memory. There are some attractions that have closed in the park with no announcement of what may be coming. The Disney community has plenty of rumors to go around about what may be coming.
It is sad to me when you see a shuttered attraction. It will be nice when they announce what is coming to these locations.
The Backlot Tour is closed.
Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show is rumored to be closing in the near future.
A project that is almost finished is the new Starbucks location. It is on Hollywood Boulevard, on the right as you are walking down the street towards the tip board. It should be opening in February.
So we have plenty to look forward to at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. What are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below. See you in the parks!
