Beautifiul, Breakable and Dishwasher Safe!

Greetings Ghost Fans,

A question I have been asked for quite a while now is about some of the manufacturers of the Mansion's more common details, such as where to purchase the Stretch Room wallpaper, or maybe even where a certain lighting fixture may be found outside of the Mansion. One that I have gotten more than any other is who crafts the beautiful Ballroom plates for both Disneyland at Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion's.

Well, with some research from both Mansions, I have found an answer. Both the Blue Disneyland plates and the Red Walt Disney World plates come from the same manufacturer. The pattern is from J & G Meakin of England, it is titled Romantic England Blue (Disneyland) and Romantic England Red (Walt Disney World). The plates, as well as the red cups and flatware are the same at both Mansion's. It appears that when the Disney Decorating department was equipping the Mansion with its dinner service sets, they purchased them at the same time, just a different color.

On a special side note, I would like to thank all of my readers for something that occured the other day. The Ghost Relations Dept. installed a counter a few months after opening to track demographics as to how to better display my blog. Since that installation in May of 2007, there have been over 100,000 hits to the blog. I thank you for reading and your continued support!

Informative post, as always. I've already ordered a set from Now, where do you suppose they got that glassware?

It would be interesting to see how your blog has affected purchases of this pattern, whether they be on ebay or another source!

These are the same plates (pink-ones) that my family has been using for almost seven years!

Do you know that the Hidden Mickeys on the tables are unofficial? Whenever Alex Carruthers goes through the Mansion he returns the china to where it truly belongs, and after he leaves the CMs put them back in a Mickey head shape. But if you ever go though the Mansion and the plates aren't in the Hidden Mickey shape, that means that Alex was there recently.
