    Wand possibly coming down?

    I know I know, we see this post every few days, but the guys over at re-imagineering have posted a seemingly cryptique blog hinting that it may very well be on its way. As I've said several times, all in all, if Epcot loses the wand and moves leave a legacy I'll consider that a successful 25th anniversary celebration for me.

    Here's the link where you can check it out yourself.

    I would mot pay attention at all to these things. They seem to be more opinions than actual facts.

    Re: Wand possibly coming down?

    Yes but that doesn't seem to be the case normally with reimagineering. They've got quite a few contacts high up within Pixar and with Lasseter now running the show I have more trust in them than the normal internet site. Plus I've never once seen them go out on a limb about some general rumor. If they're hearing it, they're hearing it from high up with Pixar or imagineering which means somebody high up is talking about it at least.

    Keep in mind that WDI is hearing things like this

    from people like us. Do you not think that some of the imagineers would like to see the wand or hat come down? It is certainly very possible that what was posted is true. I am just expressing an opinion on blogs like these.

    I'm still being skepticle until there's something more concrete. I'd like to see if Al's heard any murmurings about it.

    Re: Wand possibly coming down?

    well maybe siemon's is paying to take it down or maybe they suggested to WDI that it's time to go, or maybe lassetter is reading the boards too and figures it's time to take it down. I mean he was here several times this past year, maybe, just maybe they heard comments on how bad it looked. I wouldn't leave it to WDW management to spend the bucks to do it but if it came from higher up I can see it happening. first the wand... then the hat!!!

    As it has been posted on another board, the wand gives EPCOT it's DIsney feel. Many people do not realize that EPCOT is part of WDW. The wand gives it that Disney look.
    I would like to see SSE in it's original form but it may be a while longer before we see the wand come down.

    Re: Wand possibly coming down?

    This was posted on a Friday afternoon, on a web site created and maintained by current and former Imagineers and Pixar artists. Which means someone connected to these individuals learned about the demolition decision first hand.

    Trust me. It's coming down.

    Maybe Stepmother is stealing the wand to create another misguided sequel...

    That wand is the biggest eyesore (besides the hat).

    Oh please don't give 'em any ideas, MJ. These sequels suck dark water. Hard.

    I am sure there is at least a 'Million" of us who's dream would be to see the wand come down at Epcot. Disney could fulfill their Year of million Dreams, by simply taking down the wand.

    However, since they like to re-use things, watch what you wish for, the wand could go up next to the Tree of Life with "Animal Kingdom" hovering above the tree.
