Disney Fact #119

The Eiffel Tower in the France Pavilion at EPCOT is scaled wide at the bottom and narrow at the top. This is to make it appear taller than it actually is. If a bird were to land on the top of it, not only would it make the bird look enormous, but the tower would lose its illusion. Disney uses natural bird deterrents such as Methyl Anthranilate (found in concord grapes) to keep them away.
