Cinderella's Castle in the Walt Disney World Resort is easily recognizable to anyone. It is almost always featured in Disney World's advertisements and brochures.
It serves as the gateway entrance to the enchanted theme park, Fantasyland,
which is full of villages, characters, and rides. Families, groups
& friends stop for photos in front of the castle and that photo is often
their most treasured keepsake of their visit to Disney World. Therefore, the
Disney castle is indelibly etched in our minds as the symbol of the Magic
The Fabulous Lego Disney Castle Set #71040
LEGO Disney Castle 71040Several of our favorite Disney characters are included in the kit. With Lego, you can always add more Disney characters to join Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Tinker Bell at Cinderella's castle.
As I previously mentioned, the set has 4080 pieces. It is recommended for ages 16+. I know from experience that these ages are "recommendations" based on intricacy of the set, size & number of pieces, and dexterity. If you have a younger child who would like to build the Disney castle, why not create another wonderful memory by helping them. I fondly remember sitting at the dining room table, sorting Lego pieces into "like" piles for my son, when he was in elementary school. Not only did we accomplish building a magnificent Lego set, we talked about anything and everything. Building Lego sets together is about building relationships when you work together.
Inside the CastleThe back side of the Lego castle is also truly awesome! It allows us to take a peek at each room in the Lego Disney castle. The set includes mirror, chest, bed, spinning wheel, curtains, vases, chandelier, armor, shields and other decorative accessories are all included in the set.
There is also a hidden section under the roof to store the glass slipper or the special Lego piece created to look like a fairy-tale book.
Because either side has a finished appeal, you can decide which way you wish to display the castle. You could even place Mickey Mouse or the other characters in the rooms just for fun. What a delightful, easy way to change things around.
The Lego Disney Castle measures over 29” (74cm) high, 18.8” (48cm) wide and 12” (31cm) deep.
The Missing Element
Normally, Lego has everything you could think of, or wish for, in a Lego set. However, in this set, there is no Cinderella figure. I couldn't help but think they really should have included Cinderella. After all, she is readily available in other sets and could easily transition into this set without having to design a new figure.
Personally, I like the Cinderella figure below. I prefer the white detail in her gown that is not on some of the other Lego Cinderella figures.
For me, the castle is complete only when the lovely Cinderella there to greet her mouse and duck guests!
