Farewell to the Earffel Tower at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Earfell Tower overview

The iconic Earffel Tower at Disney's Hollywood Studios was removed overnight, bringing an end to the parks original symbol and icon.

The tower stood at 130ft tall, and famously had a hat size of 342 3/8. The top tower weighed 32,000lbs, and each ear weighed in at 5000lbs.

Although never designed to actually hold water, the Disney's Hollywood Studios version represented the common sight of water towers at motion picture studios.

Disney announced back in January 2016 that the Earffel Tower would be removed as part of the plans to redevelop the park. The area of land that the tower occupied will soon be home to Toy Story Land.

Although the tower served as the parks official icon, Disney has frequently used both the Chinese Theater and The Hollywood Tower Hotel in promotional material to represent the park.
