    I know, right?

    I'm still not utterly convinced it's "real" but it certainly seems to be...

    Me too :(

    I'm a HUGE EPCOT fan and I know most of the purist EPCOT fans hated the wand but I was delighted with it. Really sad to see it go

    I was a fence sitter on the wand...I thought it was pretty, but realized it wasn't "true Disney"...but seeing it all mangled and tangled made me incredibly sad...

    Oh I liked it a lot. Gave the ball a lot of pizazz!

    Of course, I revel in the gloriously tacky.

    I was one who really objected to the wand. It looked to carnival to me. :sorry: However, that is incredibly sad footage. :( I would have thought that they would have taken it down in a much different manner. It looks like a dump. :( I surely hope that wherever that mess is they clean it up! (Let's hope it's old footage)? :unsure:

    According to the original poster, it's gone now. Not sure to where, but apparently it was removed shortly after this footage was taken...

    What a waste! I didn't like the wand, but wouldn't have wanted it to end up like this. Let's hope they have recycled whatever they can of it?
