I haven't seen any pictures with workers at all, so I assume most if not all of this is taking place after the park closes. Limited hours may account for the rate they're moving at.
Can't wait to take my twin boys on their first trip to Walt Disney World! Planning on heading there sometime Feb-May 2014!

Pure speculation.
Good point!

Yeah, that makes sense too.

I also never liked the hat. I thought the Chinese Theatre was such a great thing to walk towards - real ambience.

I'm excited to see the view of the theater back again. I always like seeing that down the street...much better than the hat.

I'm kind of in the middle. I'm not crushed to see it go, but I'll miss it too.

I remembered the view before the hat and that is one of the reasons I was happy to see it was being taken down ~ the theater is a beautiful structure to see when you look down that way :D
