A nonprofit group that has filed dozens of environmental suits against major companies is now accusing Disneyland of exposing children to lead.

The Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation sued the corporate owner of the Orange County theme park in April. That suit claims that stained glass windows in Cinderella’s Castle, brass door knobs at Minnie’s House and other items contained excessive levels of lead.

The Los Angeles Times says the group is seeking a court injunction Tuesday to require Disneyland to cover the items or post health warnings.

Disney has rejected the allegations and spokeswoman Suzi Brown says the company believes it is in full compliance with state law regarding signage.

Eureka-based Mateel has filed many suits in recent years contending that companies violate California’s Proposition 65 toxics law.

  1. um. can we say “money hungry”? that’s all i will say on this matter. i just hope none of these people ever visited a theme park or amusement park in their lives and hope to never see them at one. how sad and pathetic their lives must be. ignorance is a horrible monster.
