Earffel Tower gets new logo for new park name


An artist paints the new logo for Disney’s Hollywood Studios Feb. 15, 2008, high atop the famous "mouse-eared" water tower on the backlot of Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Last month, Walt Disney World officially changed the name of the showbiz-themed park in Florida from "Disney-MGM Studios" to "Disney’s Hollywood Studios." Painters began work on the water tower this week, painting over the "Disney-MGM Studios" logo that had been there since the theme park opened in 1989. The giant Mickey Mouse ears on top of the water tower have made the structure — nicknamed the "Earffel Tower" — a theme park icon.

Also don’t forget that Feb. 29-March 2, 2008 marks the return of ESPN The Weekend to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Visit www.espntheweekend.com for the latest information about the upcoming event. (Garth Vaughan, photographer)
