|Opening date||March 28, 2001|
|Total height||122 ft (37.2 m)|
Built in front of The Great Movie Ride. The Sorcerer's Hat debuted on March 28, 2001 as part of the 100 Years of Magic celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort. The structure was inspired by the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment in Walt Disney's 1940 animated film Fantasia.
During the celebration, interactive kiosks were installed underneath The Sorcerer's Hat where guests could learn about Walt Disney's life and career. When the celebration ended in early 2003, the kiosks were removed.
It was used as a venue for pin trading and sales. It also served as the backdrop to many special events and shows. Disney Channel Rocks! was a show that culminated several dances from several shows on Disney Channel that performed several times a day in front of the hat. Disney characters made a meet and greet appearances around the hat throughout the day.
