I didn't care for the hat, but it was definitely more iconic and big than the Chinese Theater.

^ Agreed. Hopefully, we will see something better than the both of them at the end of the street eventually. Until then, it ought to be interesting to see how they utilize the area and fill it up.

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

I'm so loving the fact that the BAH is finally gone. It should have never been installed...at least for more than a year. Let's hope they bulldoze the tombstones in front of Epcot next! :)

I've gone pantless!

They should put a small Mount Rushmore of Bogart, Hepbern (Audrey or Katherine), Errol Flynn, and Bette Davis there.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

<<So on the MDX app, the Disney's Hollywood Studios icon is now Tower of Terror. Not the Earful Tower, not the Chinese Theater. Interesting, no?>>

Would tie in with what i heard about re useing the hat at the entrance to Fantasmic but due to the hill the hat would dwarf the TOT. So they scraped the idea.

This is the 1st time i have seen it with no hat sad to see it go but will reserve judgement until i see the whole park finish.

Great to see that the hat is gone! But I hope that the spires that used to be on the wings of the Chinese Theater will be restored; the view is a bit 'empty' without them. Does anyone know why these were removed in the first place?

Delicious & Refreshing

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2015/03/more-opportunities-to-soar-enjoy-toy-story-mania-coming-to-walt-disney-world-resort

Here at Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, we’re always making investments to exceed your expectations – whether it’s creating new attractions and entertainment or making existing experiences even better.

One of the things we’ve heard from our guests is that a visit to Walt Disney World Resort just isn’t complete without enjoying the spectacular views at Soarin’ in Epcot or a spin through Toy Story Mania! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Well, I’m excited to share that we are expanding both attractions by adding another theater at Soarin’ and more midway track at Toy Story Mania! We’ll also be updating the screens and projection system at Soarin,’ bringing a visually enhanced experience.

These expansions are expected to be complete by late 2016, offering even more opportunities for you to enjoy these beloved attractions during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

Chances they'll switch over to Soarin' Over the World when the third theater opens? I imagine this is as much a retroactive 'this thing has horrible capacity' decision as much as it is a future 'and now we're going to make it brand new again' one.
