I do hope it goes to DCA instead of being scrapped. Afterall, we did take your MSEP, we can even throw in the Pixar Pals Countown to Fun parade if you want it. ;)
I think it could be a cool entrance for the car park. Where MK has a well known entrance to the parking lot, this could be a cool way to enter the parking lot at DHS. Have the parking attendants collect the parking tolls under it as you drive in. Would create a very memorable entrance experience but it wouldnt be intrusive to the park itself.
The park had used the water tower as the DisneyMGM center piece, so to speak or as MASCOT from the opening. But somewhere I read that they wanted a center piece, like the castle at the Magic Kingdom, to be a park reference and to be similar to the other park. It may have tied in to the 100 years of magic, be I can't tell you of a single person that liked that thing. It could obviously stand for a long time, you don't building something that big in a windy state and build it flimsy.
The problem with putting that big thing in front of Grumans, is it does not look right. It just does not seem to fit the scene. Where the Castle and Epcots Spaceship Earth were built in, This was a new creation that had no place to go.
I don't know where it could look like it belongs anywhere in the DisneyMGM area but it might look ok in front of the ticket area. Put it high enough so guests can walk under it and enjoy the shade as they approach the ticket booths. Possibly put another trinket store under it. At least it won't be a total loss and it can remain the mascot for DisneyMGM studios.
I agree, it would be nice to get it out of the park.
This is like holding on to old clothes that don't fit, toys your kids don't play with, or ugly nicknacks you keep in a box. Except it was always an ugly gift.
It's metal right? Maybe they can use it to build new 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea subs for Animal Kingdom.
Is it telling that both of my suggestions make no attempt to keep it in hat form and just treat it as a big piece of scrap?
just move it to the area where the christmas tree now goes and you have fixed the problem.
It's like Grandma's fruit cake, nobody wants it but people feel bad throwing it away.
I don't feel bad!!!
Also I think removing the hat might help raise attendance for the Great Movie Ride. You wouldn't even know there was an iconic structure behind that pin store, let alone a ride.

I'm not sure how accurate this is. I know the Chinese has new owners and didn't revert to their old owners.
