Hollywood Boulevard

Travel back in time to the golden age of Hollywood when starlets reigned supreme and every director was an auteur! This bustling shopping district is the retail heart of the park. Similar to Main Street USA, it leads to the park's centerpiece, the legendary Chinese Theater. There, in addition to the Great Movie ride, you will find hand and footprints of modern day film legends in Disney's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Take a stroll down Hollywood Boulevard, and keey your eyes peeled for its legendary Citizens, whose antics amuse and entertain daily. You may even be recruited to be part of the show!

Now Extinct: The Sorcerer's Hat

The Sorcerer's Hat was removed completely in Februrary 2015. It stood at the end of Hollywood Boulevard for over a decade, and stood as the park's icon for many years.


  • Head Measurements: The hat size is 606 7/8.

  • On Top of the Mouse: Mickey would have to be 350 feet tall if he were to wear this giant hat.
     
    The Hat: The hat itself is 100 feet tall. The interior space equals nearly 60,000 cubic feet. It can hold 444,744 gallons of water. Six stars and two moons adorn the hat.

  • Paint Job: The hat is painted with a custom technique called "chameleon paint" which shifts color as guests move around it. Painting the hat required enough paint to cover 500 Cadillacs.

  • Mickey Ears: The Mickey ears feature a new special effect called "Light Ribbons," which change color and sparkle with internal pixie dust lighting.

  • Holding it All Together: There are 13,493 bolts that hold the hat together, 26,986 washers and 17,000 feet (or 57 football fields) of underground utility piping.
