    Disney bricks? (Merged threads)

    I just had a question for anyone who knows. I was trying to find out information about the personalized bricks in the front of Disneyland resort that you cane buy. If anyone knows how I can find out prices and stuff like that, could they let me know? Thanks.

    Re: Disney bricks?

    There is a customer service booth to the far left of the DL entrance gates, and there are brochures / order forms there. Or just call Customer service and they will get you setup. I had a form here somerwheres, but its about $130 / $150 per brick. No company names, no foul language, and you can put on one of about 3 designs. There is a special design for CM's also.

    One thing I didn't see on the order form was how long it takes from ordering to when your brick gets installed.

    I was going to do it, but it seemed like another money grab from DL, so I kind of avoided it. It might be kinda neat, though.

    My reason for not doing this is that there is no promise that the brick will be maintained, and the bricks are only "guaranteed" for 10 years or so (I believe that was the time stated when I initially considered the venture, could be more or less now).

    It does take a few months before you see your paver installed. 12wks I think it took for ours, but that was during the 2005/06 50th celebration, so it might have been due to the backlog they had to work thru.

    Still really cool to see it everytime we visit.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!

    Re: Disney bricks?

    In Jan a friend and I stopped into city hall and inquired about these bricks. they install as they get enough for a "block" it's currently about 10 weeks.

    The bricks are about $150 each, plus you can get a wood or acrylic replica for about $35 IIRC.

    My lit says no memorials, company names, nicknames, slogans or salutations.

    They are guaranteed 10 years but many have been there longer!

    Some of these poor bricks are worse for the wear. I always feel badly for the folks whose bricks have missing medallions, etc. I wanted one for a long time, but, never did buy one. Now, I don't want it, because I am afraid in a few years they will tear them out.

    I have actually seen those medallions replaced. So they do try too replace them in a reasonable time.

    Why wouldn't they let you have a momorial? A simple "In love of ____" seems harmless.

    What CAN You put on it? I've always been curious and to be honest, I thought it was some special thing....I had no iidea anyone could do it for a price!

    The medallions are only available if you're a passholder, I think. I THINK they're still available. I'm not quite sure though. They also have a mickey, wedding bells, the castle. I'm not sure what else. I swear I saw an application online. I'll try to find it again.

    You can put names, dates and locations - I'm not sure what else.

    That is an interesting question, plenty of other establishments allow such memorials. My only thought is that Disney does not want to be associated with death, even if it is in a positive light. At the same time it is easy to get around that rule... just put the person's name... Disney doesn't know the person so they would have no clue if the individual is dead or alive. I always thought the ILM was a waste of space personally, if their name is on it then it is a memory and if they didn't put it in then obviously someone else loves them.

    Re: Disney bricks?

    Here's something I posted the last time this came up:
    How to Get A Disneyland "Brick" Thursday, 17 May 2007 Bubblegum used to be a way to memorialize your visit to Disneyland- an outstretched arm on the Matterhorn could leave your flavorless dull pink mark on the ride, and on the park. But alas, with the wave of a putty knife, the memorials would be gone. Now Disneyland has a more permanent way to immortalize yourself - with an approved commemorative paver stone.

    The stones are located in the space between Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. The stones carry a Disney logo (choose between several), the name of an individual, couple or family, and a date. They are 8" octagons. The commemorative paver stones have a one time $150 fee, and for an extra $35.00, you can get a wood or acrylic replica for display at home.

    Some families make it a tradition to stop by and see their stone, and get a family picture on each visit. The pavers can make a special way to memorialize a loved one who is a part of special memories at Disneyland, and, although memorial specific messages aren't allowed, the name, and a birthdate or anniversary or the date of passing could be a thoughtful way to keep them close to Disneyland.
    Disneyland commemorative stones or "Disneyland Bricks" are available by calling 800-760-3566.

    Too bad Pressler isn't around... otherwise I'd say the bubblegum would last longer!
