After 13 years the legendary Sorcerer Mickey Hat is going to be removed beginning January 7, 2015. The structure was originally built in 2001 in front of the Chinese Theater. The theater would remain blocked for the next 13 years. There is much speculation as to why the hat is being removed. It could be financially the right time for Disney to remove it. It may be moved to another location or it may just be ready to come down for structural reasons. Details have not been confirmed.
Merchandise located under the hat will be moved to another location on Sunset Boulevard.
What are your thought’s about the hat’s removal? Do you think it will be relocated or just taken down permanently?
There has been no timeline released on long the process will take.
Stay tuned for more information and updates on the progress.
