so the basically almost everyone is in agreement that the hat is in the wrong place but i dont see it coming down now that it has been the icon since the 100 years of magic and since it became the official logo of mgm (excuse me disney's hollywood studios lol) and i had noticed that with the epcot wand not alot of merchandise had the latters and the wand on them most of the time it was just plain old SSE so im not quite sure they would be so willing to get rid of it now after all the money invested into it perhapse it will just move to a different location but who knows its been up for debate for a while now.

i'd be very surprised if anything happened. even just to move it is a big project in and of itself
That's true to. It would probably be cheaper just to tear it down.
Maybe, if they do move it, they will drop it and destroy it!
I Like the hat, I like it a whole lot and I have a story about that hat that endears it to me. When I took my DD in May/June, my GPS got me from home to WDW, I was driving down LBV Drive and my GPS said make immediate u-turn, I did, then she said it again, I did it again. I turned three times before I figured out she was not picking up the signal for the other end of the resort. She was not programmed for ASMu, and I have a really bad sense of direction in a new environment. I can, however, read a map and I had my trusty WDW resorts map. I pulled over near DTD and checked the map, realized I should be able to see the Hat before I needed to turn toward the resort. I found it, the hat saved me from turning in endless circles or asking for directions and it is now one of my favorite landmarks. It is my beacon in the dark now.
Besides, if they take out the hat where would High School Musical Pep Rally go?????? We love that.
There's another reason to take away the hat! I'm only kidding.

I live that story! I doubt the hat is going anywhere anytime soon unless hurricane Zelda comes blowing through WDW.

Dropping out and moving to Disney World because characters only have to be sixteen. Mustard! Now let's not be silly!
I agree wholeheartedly! Can't they at least move it off to a corner somewhere. The Movie Ride building was so cool to look at while entering this park. Stitch is most likely right, the $$ generated by the pins will probably win over. Newbies unknowingly walk into the hat to explore and find themselves in pin heaven (or heck!)

At least the wand isn't going over the Tower of Terror.
