Just seen some photos of it and it looks all plain without its wand :( did anyone else like the sparkly wand or just me?

it looks as it is supposed to be.
But, after seeing it like that for so long one does get used to it!!

I admit....I liked the wand :p015:
Many folks really liked the wand. I prefer the original, but that is because it is what I knew first and longest. :yes:
I thought the wand looked a bit too carnival for EPCOT. But again, that's my opinion and many others loved it. :yes:

too bland now i agree, i much preferred the wand with it

I saw it first without and prefer it I think. Epcot was always supposed to be a more educational type of park, away from the glitz and glamour.

definitely more "right" without the wand, but I can't help it, I like the epcot ball with the wand and I like the mk castle with the christmas lights :)
It looks naked now without the wand. I much preferred it with.

Definitely more like the original, without the wand. But I miss the wand.

I never did like the wand much so I'm glad it's gone. I guess I just love it the classic way.

Loved the wand...really sad now that it's gone. I know EPCOT is supposed to be way toned down on the Disney touch that is so obvious in the other parks...but really...How much does it hurt to know you are in a Disney park?

I'm really not sure. I first saw the 2000 hand and then the wand..
could someone send me to Epcot so I can make an informed decision :overhere:

I admit to being attracted to shiny things :p015: so I loved the wand!

I did like the wand and had no problem with it while it was there but seeing the ball 'naked' again last year I must say I prefer it that way :D

without the wand, but I didn't hate it ,like I did the castle birthday cake.
Same here GrammiePo. Didn't like the wand, but that cake was hideous! :eek:

yuck the cake was horrid!

I liked the wand, it looks bare without it.
I like the plain sphere at EPCOT. :) It's the way I first saw it in 1981 before the park opened.

I loved some of the photo's I shot whilst the wand was there, but I guess I'm a purist at heart...

Plain for me. Purely stunning. :)
