Farewell…the Earffel Tower at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Gone

The iconic Earffel Tower at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been removed, bringing an end to the parks original symbol and icon.

The tower which stood at 130 ft, and as every Disney fan knew had a hat size of 342 3/8. The top tower weighed 32,000 lbs, and each ear weighed in at 5000 lbs.

Although the tower actually never held 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. The area that the tower occupied will soon be home to Toy Story Land.

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