Disney Responds to Accusations about Tenaya Stone at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
Earlier this week, we reported accusations that the stone at the center of the Tenaya Stone Spa may have been obtained in a culturally insensitive and possibly illegal manner. Now, Disney has responded to the original Fodors article.
In an emailed statement to Fodor’s, a Disney spokesperson denied the Tenaya stone came from Yosemite National Park.
Disney responded saying:
“To confirm, the stone was not sourced from the Yosemite National Park. Any suggestion that the stone was obtained in any unlawful way is completely misleading and blatantly false.”
