    Hated the wand...I understood that the 2000 was the celebratory type thing they did, so I dealt with it...but I really didn't need it to say EPCOT for how many years. Where else in the world do they have a golf ball that size?! I knew what it was, thank you.

    Re: The Spaceship Earth Wand

    I didn't mind i i got use to it being there. I remember (some what) of going and seeing the new 2000 on the golf ball then it changing to Epcot and i forgot what it had looked like without it. Then when i went back without it i saw how much better it looked! So i didn't mind it with the wand but i LOVE it without the wand.

    I really didn't care one way or the other, but I think SSA looks better without it.

    I was okay with it for 2000. It was...tolerable in it's newness. But beyond that I'd look up at it and go "Really? Does this really contribute anything positive to the scenery?"

    as i have mentioned before there is a reason the hat is there... and it has nothing to do with the mouse or making MGM beautiful... its more how do i say... a legality thing... or so the rumor is...

    Interesting read. Makes a lot of sense that the rumor started but really has no basis. Disney is smarter than that.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Check out my blog... I just wrote something on this... What I heard was similar... But what I had heard makes more plausible sense...

    This is true...but I'll take the Sorcerer's Hat over the Epcot wand any day of the week...at least that horrid High School Musical stage is gone...it made walking down Hollywood Blvd really depressing to see the Sorcerer's Hat blocked...I've come to be accustomed to the Sorcerer's Hat, but I didn't think they would end up making it a permanent fixture

    But, yes, I agree...Spaceship Earth is best in original form
