Well, this is one story out of Disneyland that’s certainly NOT a fairytale!
An environmental group says that Disneyland is full of attractions that contain potentially dangerous levels of lead, according to The Daily Mail! Kids could be at risk!
The Mateel Environment Justice Foundation sued the theme park in Anaheim, California and said that certain attractions contained excessive levels of lead. Some of the attractions mentioned were the stained glass windows in Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, the brass door knobs at Minnie’s House and the Sword In The Stone attraction!
According to The Daily Mail, William Verick, the president of Mateel said: “We are asking the court to force Disney to take steps that should have been taken when we first told them that children at Disneyland are in danger of illegal lead exposures.”
The group claims that attractions containing lead did not have a required health warning sign posted. By law, if the average exposure exceeds 0.5 micrograms per day, a warning sign should be posted.
Suzi Brown, a Disney spokeswoman, told the Los Angeles Times that Disney hasn’t seen the papers that are being filed. “However, we believe that Disneyland Resort is in full compliance with the signage requirements.”
