    Say, what? That Hat has completely screwed-up the original, beautiful design of the Studio park. The recreation of Grauman's Chinese was a spectacular weenie at the end of the street - - the "castle" of Hollywood Bl. The cheesy Hat is, like the wand, a useless and tacky manifestation of brand-marketing creepiness over taste and design.

    They should move it - - use it as a souvenier or information kiosk on the freeway or a parking booth or something like that. Ick!!!
    I agree with your merlinjones. That Hat is such an eyesore. Not only does it obstruct the view of the Chinese Theater, but it also kills the Mickey profile that WDI designed into the layout.

    Get rid of the hat!!

    If they leave the base in place you can probably be worried. Time will tell.

    The hat did not come from DL at all, but was made specifically for the 100 years of magic celebration. I agree with everyone here that it needs to be moved. I suggest by the entrance of the Studios, by the security check and boat launch. That way, the people who like the hat can keep it, and the people who don't won't have to worry about it blocking the view the way it was originally designed.

    I think it should be moved over to the All-Star Movies resort. The hat at the Disneyland Hotel looks decent enough as it's at one of the entrances of DTD. The Disney-MGM hat would fit right in near the Fantasia section of the ASM resort!

    There are enough threads with discussions on what to do with the hat within them. This is a thread about the wand.

    So do you have something to say about the wand or just want to bash the folks that are discussing both the wand and the hat????

    The wand and hat are a matched set, like bra and panties (allegedly).

    I was thinking the same thing and that they both should be taken off, err, out....

    Nevermind the fact that Mickey never used a wand. Maybe their talking it down to put up a giant Tinkerbell. <Gags>

    Re: The Wand to Leave Epcot

    I've detested that wand for so long now that even if they sawed it up into chunks to sell on eBay, I wouldn't even want a piece of that thing if they gave it to me.

    I'm serious (and this is coming from a person that collects pieces of retired rides, promotions, and attractions)!

    Great news! Now get rid of the Leave-A-Lechery tombstones, bring back the acrylic fountain and the lovely flower beds, and I'll be a happy Epcot-er once again.

    The Wand to Leave Epcot - Update

    July 11, 2007





    MiceChat.com has learned that the back of Spaceship Earth now currently reads "Epc" as the letter "ot" have already been removed. Also, according to TDLFAN, the lighting on the wand is no longer being used as the removal process has begun. Spaceship Earth is also now down for its long refurbishment.

    MiceChat Discussion) thread (with photos): Very quick TP from EC.

    MiceChat Member, Club 33 has generated an Epcot Wand Removal feed via the Dolphin Web Cam.
