Stupid question....but what is in the Mickey Hat? I haven't been there since the hat was added.
I can't wait to see what they do to it!!

I don't know if the trivia stuff was still there.

yeah i wonder what that is going to be there was rumor of a meet and greet character place but then why would they be working on the inside?? kinda stinks if you are on vaca right now not to good for pics lol

I think they have it closed for the new lighting effects they are putting in the hat.

And here I was hoping they were finally going to take that thing down.
Well, they got rid of the wand so I can still hope!
I think the hat is a wonderful 'icon' for this park. Epcot has the ball, MK has the castle, AK has the Tree of Life...everyone on the planet knows what that hat is, and I like it as MGM's officla image. I loko forward to the new effects
Does anyone have any word on when the refurb on the hat is going to be done? I'm trying to keep tabs on everything that will be shut down or blocked off when we go so that when we get down there I won't be surprised and sad, haha.

I think they should put the wand with the hat. it seems a better fit to me...and yes, im thrilled looking at a bare SSE!!!
