Farewell to Hollywood Studios’ ‘Earffel Tower’

As we approach the 27th birthday of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, there is very little that remains from the original Disney’s MGM Studios birth in 1989. The big blue sorcerer’s hat was removed last year and the entire backlot is now a construction zone. One element that has stood tall consistently through the years is the ‘Earffel Tower,’ a giant water towel with Mickey Mouse ears bearing the park logo.

It stood tall until last night.

The Earffel Tower met an unceremonious demise as it was dismantled last night as part of the massive Toy Story Land construction project. Now it is just a memory along with the hat, the backlot and countless Roger Rabbit references.

RIP Earffel Tower (1989-2016)
