Say goodbye to the Earffel Tower, which has been the park’s icon since 1989. The 130-foot tall tower was inspired by the water tower in Disney’s Burbank studio in California, that has been a fixture since 1939. Disney has not said when the tower will be removed or if it will be re-located to another area in the park.

The decision was made because the Toy Story “Land” expansion would use the same area where it now stands, and it would also conflict with the area themeing.

Other upcoming attraction closings include Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure playground, Monsters Inc. Character Meet and Greet, Writer’s Stop, Watto’s Grotto and Studio Catering Co. They are all scheduled to close on April 2nd.

    Ellen Burke Disney – on both coasts – is becoming one of the least customer-friendly places. They don’t listen to what guests say and seem oblivious to what guests want.

    Wendy Cunningham McGuinn It seems that these things could be relocated. It was very wasteful to not find a new home for the hat, same with this. They should be relocated where we can still view them. I agree with Ellen Burke, there is a very different attitude at the parks nowadays, very far from the happiest place on earth that they used to be.
