  • [Question] What will happen to the tile murals from DCA?

    Are there any plans to sell the tiles (broken or full) that are being torn down from the murals inside DCA? It's so sad that they're going away and I'm wondering if there is any way to take home a piece of the memory?

    Most likely not. Last word we had was that because of the lead content of the paint/dye on the tiles, they would have to be disposed of in accordance with hazardous materials ordinances.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

          Thanks Mycroft - that's too bad! I know Disney is very particular about stuff like this. My friend's company worked on the Matterhorn recently and they had to cut a piece of the wall and then catalog where each of the pieces (we're talking 6" chunks) went, so that they didn't end up on eBay or something as souvenirs.

          I was hoping that they were trying to dismantle some whole tiles so that they could be kept. I'm not a huge DCA fan, but those tile murals were gorgeous. It's too bad that they're just going to be garbage -- and toxic garbage at that!
