The Eiffel Tower at dusk.

The Eiffel Tower is a 324 meter (1,063 foot) tall structure built for Paris’ 1889 World’s Fair. Like many world icons, this one has a number of connections to the Disney universe.

Most memorable is Epcot’s World Showcase where a 1/10th scale replica of the tower perched high above the pavilion gives the forced-perspective impression that the full-sized tower is looming above, a common site in the real City of Lights.

Deeper inside the Epcot pavilion lies Impressions de France, an 18-minute film showcasing France‘s famous sites. This famous tower acts as the grande finale. Want to be magically transported to Epcot right now? Check out this audio track and you’ll feel like you’re there.

The Eiffel Tower can be seen from many different areas along the streets of Paris

Also in Epcot, you can fly up to the top of the Eiffel Tower while riding Soarin’ Around the World. Its spectacular twinkling lights can also be seen during two other versions of this ride: Soarin’ Around the World at Disney California Adventure and Soaring Over the Horizon at Shanghai Disneyland. Tokyo’s version, Soaring: Fantastic Flight, opted to replace their Eiffel Tower with an extended finale featuring the Eiffel inspired Tokyo Tower.

Finally, the gigantic tower can be seen briefly during The Aristocats (1970) and Pixar’s Ratatouille (2007), Monsters, Inc. (2001), and Cars 2 (2011). While The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) takes place in Paris, the famed structure didn’t yet exist as this story takes place nearly 400 years before it was added to the city skyline.
