Earrfel Tower Coming Down at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Earful Tower

The “Earffel Tower” landmark will be coming down at Disney’s Hollywood Studios soon, and the theme park will close several attractions April 2.

Along with the previously mentioned Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure; a Monsters Inc. meet-and-greet, and the Studio Catering Co. restaurant will all close as part of a makeover.

Disney has recently added a couple new attractions based on the Star Wars space saga, including Star Wars Launch Bay and a new fireworks show.

No date was given for the removal of the Earffel Tower. The structure which is 130 feet tall with a 32,000-pound set of mouse ears, has been a Disney’s Hollywood Studios fixture since it opened.  The tower does not actually hold any water.  The Earrfel Tower was inspired by the working water tower in Burbank, Calif., a landmark at the Disney Studios since 1939.
