    You are right it is a hat. A hat that we see around the parks a lot but is no being discontinued because someone saw some metrics that shows they don't see as well as other hats in a different park no less. So this person takes these metrics over to someone and convince them they will save lets say 100k a year but stopping production on them. This clueless suit says sure why not great idea! He might even say I have never seen those in the park! Let's say that same suit becomes more powerful and gets a shiny new title and does decide to take out the attraction based on his earlier decision and say it's only a small attraction anyways. It may sound extreme to you but I have seen this happen at my company. All you need is a little power and the wrong vision and the ability to save a nickel to take even the most sacred of things away from your customers/ guests.

    Aww, sad. They were cute. I like seeing people wearing hats like that!

    Does anyone remember the day where the merchandise bags were exclusively for Disneyland? The whole One Disney thing made me think of that

    Has there been precedent set for things returning that have previously been discontinued? If so, I don't see why not take your collective frustration straight to Disney.

    They were removed because they weren't selling well? I always see people wearing them at the parks! It makes me wonder...

    When something like this happens the best thing to do after posting it on a fan site is to write a letter to the President of Disneyland resort and might as well send one to John Lassitor. Sometimes it helps to go straight up to the people that care.

    I noticed a few posts that have said, I was going to buy one, but never have. As sad as it may be, Disney is a business and if a particular piece of merchandise isn't selling well, you dont keep it around simply for novelty.

    Have you tried costume shops? They may have something similar, while not authentic.

    Exactly. While it is unfortunate for those who may have wanted one, the discontinuation of this hat is being portrayed as the worst marketing decision since New Coke.

    Re-read my first post. Only Disney World wasn't selling them. They're extremely popular here.

    Clearly I disagree. While not as huge, it's still a very iconic piece of merchandise that see people wearing all the time.

    It wasn't selling well in Disney World. Judging by the amount of people wearing them in Disneyland, it sold quite well there.

    Re: Peter Pan hats discontiuned!!!

    Has anyone seen a Mad Hatter hat for sale recently(animated version)? in WDW the only ones available have been the Johnny Depp version for the years since that movie opened and I figure they're discontinued here.. They were gone for Disneyland for a short time but were then brought back. Are they still there at all?


    And while I don't see the Peter Pan hat out at WDW ever, I see a whole lot of the Disney sold Peter Pan costume(the hat is a different style).
