Well this morning on her way to school, my daughter told me that she thought Pirates had come and stolen The Wand out of Epcot. So, that ought to lighten the mood around here and smooth any ruffled feathers.
I was doing some serious chuckling over that theory!
“To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past...and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America...with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

It had an independant magic that didnt need the aid of a giant sparkly mickey wand. It was out of place, had nothing to do with the attraction and has nothing to do with the themeing of future world, or the entire park. Why would it be there? It was just a cheap (relativly speaking) way for disney to look like it was doing something and it was a failure. It was in all technical terms a complete backfire.
Not that I would have liked it at all but if it was say a rocket ship flying over Spaceship Earth it would make sense. If it was set of planets orbitting it would make sense but a giant magic wand in a "city of tomorrow"...why?
