Sorcerer's Hat

With rumors rising of DHS updating, I've been curious what the Disney community thinks about the Sorcerer's Hat at DHS. Please feel free to give your opinion and vote in the poll whether you think the hat should be kept or removed.

Personally, I don't mind the hat because I've never been to the park without it being there, although I would like the Chinese Theater more if it had a different attraction inside.

I like the hat and based on the choices, I would prefer the hat to stay. However, with the updates coming to DHS, I wouldn't be surprised if the hat goes and another icon takes its place.

I would like to see the hat go. I like the water tower with mickey ears better as a HS icon.

Since HS is my least favorite park, I really could care less. I'm at the point where I could skip it on a visit. I'd rather spend more time at the other three. If it wasn't for Star Tours being updated just before our last trip, I doubt DH and I would have gone to HS at all.

If they are updating/overhauling HS there is A LOT of room for improvement. For example, the Movie Ride is fine as a concept but it hasn't changed (as far as I know) since the ride opened. Either update the script or scrap it and start over. And I think the same can be said for most of the attractions at the park.

I associate Hollywoody Studios with the hat, but that's probably because I was only 9 or 10 when it went up, so I kind of grew up with it there...for the part I remember the most of anyway.

I don't remember a time without the hat there. But I can definitely understand why people who always knew the Chinese Theatre as the backdrop might want that back as well. I guess we'll just have to wait and see! We'll always have pictures.

I was so disappointed when the hat went up in front of the theater.
I like the Old Hollywood look.

Isn't there also rumor of the Chinese Theater going bye, bye?

AND, some newer images that showcase all 4 parks, show the castle, the tree of life, the epcot ball and TOT, not sure if anyone else has noticed that, but I have. Seems to me, that subtle image may suggest the hat will be gone in the future, but that's just my two cents.

I just came back to post this. I went to the Disneyworld web page and there was a large image that showed the icons of MK, AK and EPCOT, but the icon for DHS was Hollywood Tower of Terror. I find this really interesting because the Tower of Terror is not unique to DHS.

I was really surprised the first time I saw it there. It completely destroys the setting. I like the hat fine, but it needed to have been put somewhere else.
