Not everyone is a fan of the giant Sorcerer Mickey hat at Animal Kingdom. Who knew?

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Taking all of us at Uncle Walt’s Insider by surprise, apparently some fans are not excited about the new installation of the giant Sorcerer Mickey hat in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Spa, as reported here yesterday.

Uncle Walt’s reached out to its devoted fans for their response. Here is a sampling of the reactions we received:

“It took me a long time to realize that the hat was there. Disney does so much with projections these days, I thought they were just projecting a hat on the Tree of Life.” – Roderick M., chef, Oregon

“I would have much preferred they put up the wand from Epcot instead.” – Carmen T., homemaker, Georgia

“I’m so upset. The hat is completely out of place where they put it! It would blend in much better in Pandora – The World of Avatar.” – Mark S., meteorologist, Colorado

“I refuse to visit Animal Kingdom until they add the Antarctic land Joe Rohde promised us years ago.” — Vincent, penguin, Antarctica

“I don’t get it.” – Shelly V., website critic and humor judge, California
