    I have no idea. I came on here one night and saw the he was banned and I was completely shocked. I've asked mods but haven't gotten an answer. I did that just to be ornery ha ha.

    Originally the movies had to be MGM, or Disney because they owned them, because it was MGM Studios after all and they contracted with MGM. The sorcerer's hat in front of the theater had to go up when the MGM contract expired. Since the contract has expired, the Great Movie Ride rumors have been flying.

    The sorcerer's hat has been up since 2001, for the 100 years of magic celebration, not for the contract expirering, which was in 2007.

    I think its ok at the moment. Maybe in a couple of years when better movies come out. Although, the ones in the ride are classics! If they do fix it up i would like them to take out the alien part. it scares all the little kids that just want to see dorothy.

    ive answered this before... the sorcerer's hat is their because the Graumann family was suing Disney because of the likeness that the GMR is to the Chinese Theateer... so Disney put the hat up and have no intention of taking it down... because they agreed to keep the theater's appearance away from the main entrance view...


    remember back in the day the MGM logo was the theater... and you could see it from the turnstiles...? not anymore...

    they always have been either MGM or Disney...

    Disney paid MGM a pretty penny for each film they did...

    Ingrid Bergman cannot be heard on the attraction... why? her family asked for over a million dollars for every 5 seconds or so her voice is heard in the attraction...

    Fantasia was supposed to be the twister scene of Wizard of Oz... it wasnt because again it would have cost Disney millions to add the 10 second scene of the house landing... MGM was tough using Oz...

    I don't think that's a good reason to take out a scene. There are plenty of adults who enjoy the ride too (and Alien is a classic).

    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    yeh... and the sad thing was it was without obstruction for like 12 years before they did that... i dont know what made them all of a sudden let it bother them so much... but Disney uses the 100 years of magic as an excuse...

    Re: The Great Movie Ride Rehab???

    maybe... but i also noticed there isnt alot of signage around there... and the entrance seems strange to those who have not ridden before... so they may miss it entirely... plus the sorcerers hat kind of makes that section of the courtyard not a central hub as it once was... it was much busier and much more happening back in the day... you can bypass the entire attraction by turning to go by VoA or near Star Tours and Indiana Jones... i think i have longwindedly answered your question... in short yeh... i think that is one of a few reasons...

    I wish they would or could take that hat down because it is an eye sore.
