For years I’ve always had an appreciation for the decorative ironwork at Disneyland and later the California Adventures Park and Resort hotels. The volume of work is impressive, there must be miles and miles of quality iron work at the resort. The variety of the work is impressive too. Many of the gates and rails are made using traditional blacksmith techniques as newer parts of the park have introduced design elements made available through the use of modern CNC technology.
This is by no mean definitive. There is a LOT more work that could be show cased and should be. Many great examples of work were simply skipped in the interest of time and convenience, this was an impromptu project after all.
Through-out the video I have tagged where the ironwork can be found in relation to the nearest land, street or attraction and is not necessarily an example of the exact attraction mentioned. For example: in the subset of Buena Vista Street in California Adventures, I didn’t bother detailing, “just outside the bathrooms across from Award Wieners.” You get the idea.
The video is rough and if there’s enough interest in this, I might consider returning with a tripod and a better camera to get better imagery.
