Okay so I was wondering what people would think about giving the sorcerer back his giant hat and retheming Grauman's Chinese Theatre to Carthay Circle Theatre.

I think that would be pretty cool, but I don't think that Disney will change now that it is an icon for the park.

As far as I know, there is already a Carthy Circle Theatre at DHS. Would it be possible to alter the building to accomodate a nice restaurant, like the one at DCA?

Personally, I'd rather see them dump the Mickey Hat, and re-do the Great Movie Ride. It's a fun concept that I would hate for them to just rip out completely, but it really needs to be re-done.

I'm definitely fine with getting rid of the hat, but I don't see the need to change the Chinese Theater to the Carthay Circle. IMO, the Chinese is much more iconic and well recognized; Disney did a pretty good job of educating folks about the Carthay Circle, since it was essentially unknown to the general population before they announced they were building a replica of it. I'd love to se the area return to a more period-specific look, but I just don't see the need to swap out one vintage movie palace for another, when that money could be better spent elsewhere in WDW.

The Carthay Circle in the Studios is much, much smaller than the DCA building, and really only serves at the facade of part of a shop. Given its positioning within the park, it really isn't even an iconic structure, as it just looks like another storefront. That area of the park has several old theaters scaled down and turned into shops, so it just sort of blends into the crowd. If they wanted to make a high-end dining experience like what they have in DCA, it woudl probably be easiest to just do a makeover at the Brown Derby.

The wand on the side of SSE was considered an icon for Epcot, yet that was mercifully removed. Here's hoping that they'll come to their senses about the dumb hat. It doesn't fit the time period, it's way out of scale with everythign around it, and a giant hat in the middle of a plaza just doesn't make any sense in the first place.

During my trip to WDW last week, I was amazed the earful tower was still there at DHS. The way WDW ignores this feature, I would have thought it had been removed.

But it costs money to remove the Earful Tower, so it's cheaper to just keep it around.

(or is there any chance that it's actually a functioning water tower too? that could explain why it's still there)

Speaking of things at WDW kept around. I went poking around over at the former River Country. I didn't know there was a boatdock there. I'm thinking it is for emergency personel usage. And an odd question, why is there a basketball hoop over at River Country?
