An exciting new icon is being built with the creation of a giant Sorcerer Mickey Hat, just like the hat worn by Sorcerer Mickey - brilliant blue in color and standing more than 120ft tall. Where is it going to be in the park? The Sorcerer Mickey hat will stand at the the end of Hollywood Blvd., directly in front of the Chinese theater, and will take approximately nine months to complete.

The Disney/MGM Studios is a dynamic theme park that captures the excitement of the many aspects of entertainment-not only movies, but animation, television, theater, and music. the new icon will represent the magic of show business and the entertainment wizardry of Disney. What will this mean for the Earful Tower? Will it remain on property? The Earful Tower still remains a very important part of our park. We are just thrilled at the opportunity to build an icon that more reflects the magic of show business and the entertainment wizardry of Disney.
