T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Adios Sorcerer Hat!

Disney World is an ever changing, ever evolving place – they are constantly introducing new rides, attractions, food, restaurants, characters, merchandise…the list goes on. Needless to say, I don’t think anyone can accuse them of not being innovative. Changes are being made every day all around the Disney Parks, and one of those changes I am personally pretty excited about is the removal of the Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In case you aren’t familiar with the hat, it’s that HUGE thing with Mickey ears you can see the minute you enter the park:

It appeared in 2001 as a part of the “100 years of magic” celebration, and it originally housed interactive kiosks where you could learn about the career and life of the man himself – Walt Disney. Once the celebration ended in 2003, the kiosks were removed and the hat served as a special events venue as well as a pin trading/purchase site. Disney announced it would be removed in October 2014 as part of a Hollywood Studios makeover. Here’s a look at how the de-construction is going:

No word on what will replace it, but I am sure it will be something awesome (stay tuned for more news on that right here!). And in the meantime, enjoy the awesome view of the Great Movie Ride that is now unobstructed! Yay!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of my favorite of the 4 Theme Parks – it’s ‘streets’, live performers, rides and attractions emulate the Hollywood glamour of the early 20th century. As you stand at the entrance, you’re taken in by the sights and sounds of Old Hollywood, and if you listen closely, you can even hear the screams coming from the Tower of Terror

Check out some of my favorite “Hollywood” spots:

Hollywood Studios has a lot to offer – and for you movie lovers out there, I suggest you check it out – it’s pure heaven!
