Earful tower moving to Disney Springs?

It certainly sounds plausible but I just don't know. It would make sense on one hand - they already have a water tower, why build another - but on the other hand it doesn't. Either I have a faulty memory or this guy is talking about something that hasn't been happening.

Based on the amount of recycling we’ve seen from Walt Disney Imagineering the last few years with larger props from extinct attractions, I can imagine a scenario where the Disney Springs water tower is built from the remains of the Earful Tower.
The only things I remember being mentioned as being recycled were some of the animatronics from Snow White but that's been done before supposedly (I guess some of the animatronics in Splash Mountain are from Disneyland Sings or whatever the carousel show was they had in DL). I don't remember anything else as being recycled - and not "larger props"

It's possible I suppose!

Hollywood Studios is definitely pushing the Tower of Terror as the park "weenie" and the Earful Tower (not really being properly visible "inside" the park) seems to be destined for the same scrap heap as my beloved Sorceror's Hat!!

It would, on the face of it, make sense to "up-cycle" the tower and use it as the Disney Springs "weenie". Lots of variables re cost of "relocating" compared to cost of new etc but plausible!
