I love the hat but what I don't love is that it is front of the Chinese Theater.
Maybe they'll move the hat to the top of SSE to replace the wand?
I'm only guessing, but you're against my idea, right??
They make it a point to duscuss the hat in all the specials on the Travel Channel. I can't see them taking it down.

Wouldn't be a shame if a small tornado touched down only on the BAH destroying it and leaving everything around it fine...?

We can only hope for a tornado. I agree with everyone that the hat is just in the wrong spot for the studios. As you enter the park all you see is this gigantic hat blocking everything. I hope disney has enough sense to realize this and move it somewhere else. When the hat was first built there used to be some sort of games underneath it. I know that there is still a gift shop, but are the games still there? Why do we need another gift shop smack dab in the middle of the theme park. Look around there is giftshops EVERYWHERE. Is this one truly needed?

they cant take away the hat now
The Chinese theatre was never the icon of the studios. It was the Earful Tower before the hat. I really don't like the hat, and I didn't care for the wand either, so if the hat left it wouldn't bother me.
And to answer to another post I read earlier, it doesn't take that long to change the Icon (years and years), the hat took over in less than one year. It went through several planning phases first, it was originally going to be a dark ride over where LMA is currently located, then they thought about the front of the park near Fantasmic! but next to the Main Entrance, they actually did ballon checks for the two spots, but decided to make it a merchandise point and Icon in the middle of the park.
