The Earful Tower is an icon used in Disney theme parks. The tower is based on water towers commonly found on Hollywood studio backlots of the first half of the 1900s, originally a safety measure to douse any fires on the film sets. The tower resembles the water tower found at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California, with the exception of the Mickey Mouse ears. In the Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris, the tower is named the Earffel Tower (an obvious pun on the Eiffel Tower).
