    your feelings? (Mickey Sorcerer's Hat)

    So I'd like to know how everyone feels about the Sorcerer Mickey hat at DHS. I remember on my first trip to WDW, that hat was not there. We returned that summer to find that it was being built. I personally don't like it very much. It is a bit of an eyesore that blocks a wonderful view of the Chinese Theatre. The hat also doesn't really fit the theme of "the old Hollywood that never was."

    How do you feel about it?

    Maybe they will add a loop to the hat...

    I am not a fan, and think that it is a poor park icon. The hat does not say ''show biz'' to me.

    I'm pretty sure the only reason it's there is so the park has some "icon" or "wienie" they can use for advertising the park. I'm not sure why they stopped using the Earful Tower, but whatever.

    I hate the hat. It destroys the perspective of Hollywood Boulevard and completely alters the entrance experience to the park.

    I heard they "covered up" the theater for copyright or licensing reasons associated with the rebranding of the park and removal of MGM. I doubt this has much truth behind it, but what have the rest of you heard?

    The story as heard on the internet is, since the Chinese Theater is owned by Warner Bros., that Disney had to cover it up for legal reasons. But I have never read this from any official source, so that may well be just another internet legend. The Hat epitomizes the cheapness and tackiness that was the second decade of Eisner.

    A little off-topic but...did you guys hear that Disney is selling El Cap?...(the Mouse will remain as a tenant). I wonder why, when Disney went looking a classic movie theater in the late 1980s...why didn't just buy the Chinese Theater, instead of El Capitan? At that time they were planning on using it as an icon for two parks...Disney-MGM Orlando and Disney-MGM Paris. IMO it would have made a lot more sense.

    I don't like it's location. It's OK but is seems like people go to it looking for something, and there isn't much there.

    i have no problem with it whatsoever. My first visit didn't have the hat there but after it was placed there I had no problem with it. I almost expect to see it now everytime I go there. That hat isn't going anywhere. It's now an icon, whether we like it or not.
