Guests can also now see videos in their accounts that previously only Memory Maker Guests could access. All Guests wearing active MagicBands will have attraction videos automatically associated to their accounts. More details on the changes can be found in the link below...

Sorcerer's Hat to be Removed From Disney's Hollywood Studios - Jack Sparrow Departing

INTERCOT's Sources are telling us that Disney will announce the removal of the Sorcerer's Hat from Disney's Hollywood Studios shortly.  The park icon (much like the wand over Epcot's Spaceship Earth) has been a source of minor controversy since it's introduction.  Purists argue that the Great Movie Ride was designed to be the "weenie" of the park while others point to the Earful Tower as the parks symbol.  In other news, the Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow is also mentioned to be closing next month.
