Orlando station WKMG has confirmed that the Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be removed:
Disney Spokesman Bryan Malenius just confirmed to Local 6 the park plans to reimagine the park’s central plaza by removing the Sorcerer’s Hat in early 2015
The hat was installed in 2000 as part of the 100 Years of Magic campaign, but has remained following the conclusion of that celebration. It is currently used by Disney as the icon of the park. It is unknown what Disney will use for that purpose once the hat is removed.
