The Chapeau now closed at the Magic Kingdom

The Chapeau closed
Posted: Monday March 29, 2021 8:05am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Alongside the start of the refurbishment of the Main Street Confectionery at Magic Kingdom, The Chapeau has closed its doors today.

Although not yet confirmed, its closure may be somewhat permanent, as Main Street Confectionery expands its footprint into some of the Chapeau space.

It isn't clear if all of the Chapeau space will be used by the Confectionery store, or if it will just be part of the first room which is closest.

All of the hats that were sold at The Chapeau are now available at Box Office Gifts inside Town Square Theater.

The only thing that could hold for this long is fondant. Once they scrape that off, you will see that is has been covering a swamp for 50 years.

Is the facade whipped cream, butter cream, or fondant?

I was hoping Blad Chapek would be the mascot for the Harmony Barber Shop. ;)

They still do embroidery at Disney Springs at Wonderful World of Memories (across from the Christmas store)

Fantasy Faire has embroidery stations.

I understand Le Chapeau will be renamed Le Chapek.

It was mentioned that the embroidery stations were being moved to Town Hall, so literally five seconds walk from Le Chapeau.

Big Top embroiders them, as well as a few other locations. I know Big Top is currently closed, but I don’t think embroidered Mickey ears are going anywhere.

But they will make it up in volume and reduced costs (so says the sharp pencil guy)

Another touch of Disney magic gone.... (embroidered Mickey ears.) They are gonna budget cut these parks until there’s nothing left but cupcake parties.

I'm pretty sure EPCOT and DHS also have stores that will embroider them (or did at one point; not sure if they still do), but I think there are multiple locations at the MK that do it. EDIT: Looks like Sir Mickey's and Big Top Souvenirs both also did it at least at one point, as did MouseGear at EPCOT (obviously not at the moment). Apparently the place that used to offer it at DHS has changed into a sweet shop but may still offer embroidery in the back? It was offered at Disney Springs at one point as well, and was briefly offered at Animal Kingdom but stopped pretty quickly. Maybe they're planning to phase it out entirely as another way to cut expenses because I just read it's no longer offered at Sir Mickey's either.

Can you get them personalized or was the hat store the only place? If they still do that
