    Olszewski Cinderella Castle (Pics)

    I finally bought this castle. I've wanted it for about a year and picked one up from The Art of Disney on Main Street.







    And the castle at night.

    A rock from near the actual castle maybe? That is really gorgeous, congratulations to you. There is a glorious and delicate pocelain one in one of the shops (used to be in the castle, but I believe it has moved) that is a treasure as well. Yours is beautiful and amazing and the lights are really pretty.

    Is the rock the on/off switch? Make music?

    Thank you. Very close! I was walking down Main Street a couple of days ago and noticed cracks in the street. There were broken pieces off the street in some of the cracks and I picked one up that looked about the right size to pose as a boulder in the water. I love the fact that I own an actual piece of Main Street. I also have a piece of Pirates of the Carribean, but that's another story

    The castle doesn't make music but I have my Playstation PSP playing "Wishes" behind it. The tree circled is attached magnetically and hides the on/off switch.

    What a great idea- to have an actual piece of Main Street there!
    I envision many of us walking with our heads down looking for little pieces to pick up.

    Pardon me in advance if I accidentally bump into any of you.

    You should have seen me walking around with my head down. I bet I looked ridiculous!

    Wow that is just beautiful! What are the dimensions of it? It looks quite big but I think that's just the forced perspective (ok sorry had to do it).
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    The exact dimensions are 12 1/4"H x 11 7/8"W x 3 3/4"D. So it's a foot tall. When I get up close with the macro setting on my camera it looks incredible. It is an open edtion so I encourage everyone to save up and get one on your next trip. With tax it was around $260. I carried it out to the car and got lost in the Pluto parking lot. It was very hot and at one point I started thinking, "Am I gonna die out here?"
