Theme Park of the Day: Legoland California

Is this the ultimate Disney castle souvenir set?

July 11, 2016, 6:00 AM · What's the most famous part of a Disney theme park? Whether you've visited a Disney park or not, odds are you'd answer "the castle." Disney's castles are its theme park icons, and models and other depictions of those castles remain some of the most popular souvenirs that Disney sells.

This September, Disney theme park fans will have the opportunity to buy what looks like one of the most detailed and engaging models of a Disney castle yet offered. On September 1, Lego will start selling a new "Disney Castle" set, based on the Cinderella Castle at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The set will include more than 4,000 pieces, including five minifigs: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Tinker Bell. When assembled, the set will be 29 inches tall... and might be more detailed than the actual castle, which didn't offer much more than a restaurant and a cast member break room until Disney added the Dream Suite several years ago. The Lego set includes four floors on the main building, with five additional floors in the main tower.

Each room in the castle offers a detailed scene, including Mickey's sorcerer's apprentice gear. Additional details include suits of armor, a magic carpet, a spinning wheel (Hey, I thought this was Cinderella's castle!), a golden mirror and red apple (Maybe Cindy's got some of the other princesses over for the weekend?), and a glass slipper (OK, now that's more like it).

They had a Marx Disneyland play set in the 1960s, I just wish they made a more detailed set with just the castle, and then with other buildings/lands. The Disneykins were the perfect scale for a play set, unlike the bigger castle play sets they sell in the parks nowadays.

July 11, 2016 at 8:01 PM · "The box for this one said 'Ages 16 and up.'"
"That's a suggestion. They have to put that on there."
July 11, 2016 at 8:14 PM · Beautiful but I'll wait for the Anaheim version. I also look forward to Lego sets of the classic attractions such as Jungle Cruise, Pirates, etc.
July 13, 2016 at 9:53 AM · I wonder is this only sold at Disney Parks and or also at Disney Stores and Lego stores at local shopping malls around the U.S..
July 14, 2016 at 11:35 AM · Lego store in Orlando and my guess
