Beautifiul, Breakable and Dishwasher Safe!
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!
