Those frequenting WDW Radio who have ever built anything with LEGO bricks, I have some good news for you. Announced earlier today was a LEGO Disney Castle set, although it may have a generic name, it is based on Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World.
The Disney Castle is the first Disney park element to be turned into an official LEGO set. Composed of 4080 pieces, this miniature Cinderella Castle comes with Minifigure representations of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Tinker Bell. The first four are new versions of their Disney Minifigures Series 1 release, while Tinker Bell is currently exclusive.
Just like the real castle, this version is brimming with small details. Interior rooms come complete with mirrors, books, buckets, lamps, and a glass slipper among other odds and ends. The third floor even has a LEGO Stud shooter to create your own blocky fireworks.
The Disney Castle set goes on sale online and at LEGO Stores on September 1st, for $349.99. Often times LEGO VIP Members (the LEGO rewards program) get early access a week or two in advance. Until then you can check out the official page for full details here. Just try not to drool too much on your keyboard.
As a massive Disney fan, I can only hope for more park related sets. In my speculative opinion, I think we will see another set next year, similar to the release pattern of the LEGO The Simpsons sets. Here’s hoping for Spaceship Earth.
