Does anyone know what the purpose of the wand was anyway? I mean, it doesn't even fit in the whole idea of EPCOT. It would have fit better at the Disney Studios, not that I would wish the wand on that Park.
The purpose of the wand was ornamental during the Millenium Celebration at EPCOT... sort of a special overlay for Spaceship Earth. Originally it read "2000" on top instead of "Epcot". It's run it's course, it's beginning to look dated and run down... It needs to be taken down for good. Same for the MGM Hat.
Same. I don't mind the Hat (although the Grauman is better), but the wand is awful.
