    They are doing a LOT of projects right now at Disney, and things take time! You have to take it apart step by step, so it definitely takes time!

    They hope to have it off by Epcot's 25th!

    Ok forgive me for the blasphemy but why do so many object to the hand and wand? I know it wasn't part of the original EPCOT but I think it was a nice plus up. The Scorcer's Hat wasn't part of MGHM but I think it improved the vista there (except of course that it did mess up the giant hidden Mickey).

    I am so excited to go to Disney World and see Epcot without the wand the last time i saw it like that was when i was like 5 years old. I am so thrilled to see it how it was originally presented when it opened 25 years ago! YAY!

    Basically because it has nothing to do with the theme of Epcot. It doesn't fit at all. The hat is completely in line with the theme of MGM - Disney Movies. The hat comes from Fantasia. The hand and wand do nothing to enhance what Epcot is, they just serve to make it more kid-like, and closer to the theme of the Magic Kingdom. Spaceship Earth by itself is an engineering marvel and has its own intrinsic beauty. By adding the hand and wand, the architectural icon was de-emphasized. The emphasis is now on the hand and wand itself, and makes the geodesic sphere look somehow "smaller" and less grand.

    And the giant "EPCOT" is just redundant. None of the other parks feel the need to tell us where we are in such a blunt and overbearing manor.

    That's my 2 anyway.
