    If someone can get us a photo of the gap in the wrought iron, we can compare it with the photos of the ebay relics. If one of them lines up perfectly, that will go a long way toward authenticating these items, but otherwise, they need some sort of official authentication from Disney, since this style of wrought iron has long been commercially available. It would be an easy, easy fake. (The gap was there, I'm tellin' ya, as of a few weeks ago, right there on the bottom floor where you can easily see it as you go by.)

    I'll be at Disneyland tomorrow and Saturday. I'll see if I can find the gap and get some pics.

    This is just my observation - I'm not trying to claim to have evidence one way or another - but I've found Theme Park Connection to be pretty consistent in having authentic Disney refuse. Somehow, they have obtained either a contract or agreement to take Disney's detritus and sift through it. These pieces don't look to me to be anything Disney would ever sell themselves as props or collectibles - just trash from a refurb. Sometimes it's surplus materials, and sometimes it's worn out costuming - junk, in Disney's eyes. And I wouldn't be surprised if they replaced large chunks of the iron wholesale, as I've noticed it get layers and layers of goopy paint over the years that start to alter the nice design at some point. The broken pieces are more likely broken simply from being tossed in piles and garbage containers by Disneyland when they were removed, than sections that have been broken off of the current facade.

    I've been collecting long enough to know that when I see something sold by Theme Park Connection as a park-used piece of discarded stuff, it's usually real. There will never be a certificate of authenticity for anything like that. That said, they have often sold things that are supposedly concept art or demonstration art that more likely was just a copy someone had framed and hanging in their office. And I know they have sold replica signage, though when I've seen it, it's been labeled as such. I also think they have sold surplus material and implied it was from an attraction, when it was likely an extra piece that was never used (like an external lantern, for example). That's just my experience with them.

    Another thought. They say it's from a 2005 refurb. Well, what did they do to the exterior in 2005? They put up a giant spiderweb for the 50th DL Anny. I wonder if they had to monkey with some of the ironwork to accommodate the heavy ropes, etc. used?

    I've just heard from another reliable source, someone who knows the person who supplied Theme Park Connection with the pieces, and the source affirms that they are indeed genuine.

    Well, at least this piece seems to match what's actually used on the Mansion:

    Still begs the question: Why was it necessary to replace this particular piece?

    I can think of all kinds of things, but the first one that came to mind was perhaps it was one of the lower corners and was used for a gum repository. Replace it, prep it for the trash and if someone wants to take it and make time to clean in and resell it... why not.

    It looks like the Epic Mickey Lonesome Manor.

    Another great interview with Rolly Crump, with comments toward the end about how he was booted off working on the Mansion.

    I actually liked the look of the Mansion from the movie. It's one of my guilty pleasures.

    Really, the biggest thing working against the movie was Eddie Murphy. The production design, sets, and music were all pretty cool.

    Well, the script was awful and they didn't seem to really understand the Mansion, right down to the caretaker and dog being portrayed as ghosts. As removed as Pirates ended up being from the ride, at least it had violence, murder, pirates chasing women, a good cast and basically a lack of embarrassing moments.
