What has been considered by many as the original icon of Disney's Hollywood Studios is now gone. The Earfell Tower (its name was conceived as an homage to the famed Eiffel Tower in Paris) was removed overnight at the park, leaving a rather large empty space in the backstage area where this icon once stood.
While the news of its sudden removal certainly caught everyone by surprise, the demolition of the Earffel Tower was confirmed by Disney several months ago.


This recognizable landmark, which sported giant, illuminated Mickey Mouse ears, originally featured the logo of Disney-MGM Studios. It was repainted in early 2008 with the theme park’s new name and logo.


If the giant, mouse-eared structure had a hat, the size would be a whopping 342 & 3/4ths. This fun fact has been shared by many Disney fans in the past, and it's surely one of the most interesting ones.
