    because it does not say than or implies that on that line.
    In my opinion

    technically it would say tony stark. since jarvis is part of the display. there is no rdj

    Let's cut this down to just facts now. The press release states that you will see the Hall of Armor as seen in the film, among other props. Based on screenshots posted in this thread I would say that they delivered on that. Again, I'm sorry you got disappointed. I'm sorry that you misunderstood the press release and it caused you this much of a headache.

    Mark I-VII are the armors used in the background filming in the workshop. Glass enclosure armor more set pieces. None is fake. They were used in Iron Man 3 as stated.

    Do you have a source for that?

    This seems like the heart of your beef. To play the devil's advocate: Wouldn't an authentic prop from from the film be solid? There's no need for the prop to bend if it's simply used in the film in the Hall of Armor. How does being solid mean it's a replica and wasn't used in the film?

    I mention this since you might have a stronger argument with Disney if you're clear about this point.

    Re: truly bad experience at disneyland. need some advice

    Yup, bottom line here is that Disney lost a loyal customer due to technicalities. Assumptions make the worst of people, and that's exactly what happened here. If this exhibit were that big of a deal, a phone call or email (or snail mail) confirming that these suits were actually worn by RDJ should have taken place. The wording does not say that they were actually worn, you assumed it. Sorry, but that's just the truth. They could very well be (and probably are) the authentic pieces from the movie, which could have been (and probably were) props, one piece suits that looked to be the previously worn suits. Take it as a lesson learned... if something means this much to you, do some research before investing hard earned money and time.

    I do sympathize with you. I don't see Disney being wrong in this situation, though.

    I don't think there's anything Disney can do to make me not go there anymore... I hope I don't ever find out if there is.

    According to this article, the guy in charge of the exhibit (Jay Dreves) says they're not replicas but real armors that were used in the films.

    With this being said, it says nothing and doesn't imply actually being used by the RDJ.

    Unfortunate that something that should have been an awesome trip went sour so quickly.

    A quote from the article (emphasis mine):

    "The main draw at Iron Man Tech is Iron Man’s Hall of Armor, as seen in the films – with the Mark I through Mark VII armors worn in Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers all on display..."

Through simulation technology, guests will be able to see what it’s like to operate the latest pieces of the Mark 42 Iron Man armor, even getting the chance to test out its infamous repulsor blasts.

    It doesn't say anything about the suits being authentic. When it mentions the I - VII, my reading is that it mentions them as concepts, not physical suits. "Featured in" reads to me like they were "stars" of the show, not physically featured in. Similar to how you can meet Merida, but you're not really meeting Merida, you're meeting an actress dressed up like Merida. But, of course, they don't call it that.

    Honestly, I am sorry you had such a negative experience but in the future when marketing is vague like that it would make sense to find out what the real deal is before planning a trip.
    That's all and good for the press release but what about Disneyland's claim on their own website on the Innoventions page?
    Dates: Beginning April 13, 2013 (for a limited time)
    Celebrate the May 3, 2013 theatrical release of the highly anticipated action-adventure film, Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow with this remarkable exhibit:

    • See authentic movie armors from Iron Man 3.
    • Learn about the technology behind the Iron Man suits.
    • Through augmented reality technology, see yourself virtually suiting up in pieces of the latest Mark 42 armor on a video screen display.
    • Virtually, test out some of the cool features of the suit

    So, yes, unless he misspoke (saying worn instead of used), no real way the full suits on display at Innoventions are wearable to judge from seeing them in person it would seem. The pieces on display were based on armor models seen in the films, no doubt of that, but that's back to the Disney-speak aspect (meeting Merida and Cinderella and Jack Sparrow, etc) perhaps.

    Could be merely an assumption then the writer of that article misrepresented/propagated as fact, or the Imagineer propagated knowingly when it was inaccurate about the suits being 'worn'. Either way, the press for this in advance states potentially misleading information about what appeared on film and in what capacity, blurring the lines of what is 'authentic' and how it was utilized, regardless of if the armor seen in Innoventions had background use in the movie.

    Re: truly bad experience at disneyland. need some advice

    A lot of people are using the term authentic as if it actually means something. IMO this is similar to some food producers calling something organic when in fact it is anything but.

    Disney may very well have made exaggerations in regards to the Iron Man suits being "authentic". So much so they probably could be sued if someone if someone really wanted to.

    Is the OP justified in his anger? If he was from the local area I would say not. But seeing all the expense he went through only to be duped, I'd say his feelings are justified.
