What began as an out-of-the-blue internet rumor this morning seems to now be official.

According to ClickOrlando, the blue Sorcerer's Hat in the center of the park and The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, both located in Disney's Hollywood Studios, will soon be no more. ClickOrlando cites Disney spokesperson Bryan Malenius as confirming the rumor that the process to remove the Sorcerer's Hat will begin sometime in early 2015. In addition, the official Walt Disney World website now lists The Legend of Jack Sparrow's final day in operation as November 6, 2014.

There have been many changes announced recently for Disney's Hollywood Studios, including the closing of The American Idol Experience and the Studio Backlot Tour. There is much speculation about the reasons for these closures ranging from the addition of a Star Wars-themed land to a smaller version of Cars Land akin to the version in Disney's California Adventure, but nothing has been confirmed.
