Back in 2016 LEGO revealed a beautiful Disney Castle (set 71040). As many of you know this set only contains the front half of the castle with the backside showing rooms and interior. Part of me wished to build the other half with a bit of environment to make a complete castle. Unfortunately it would take up too much space, parts and money.

To make my wish come true I set out to design a miniature version of the Cinderella Castle (including the scenery) located in both the Magic Kingdom in Florida and Tokyo Disneyland. The result is what you see in the pictures. This ‘slice of Disneyland’ is build on 1 baseplate of 48 x 48 studs, contains about 3000 parts and took about 3 months to design and build.

The plaza in front of the castle contains a small mosaic of a star. This mosaic is a design by the admirable LEGO mosaic builder Katie Walker.

This looks really awesome. There are lots of good ideas on the castle to create different shapes and textures. Beautiful! :classic:

Wow very impressive! As much as I love the interior of the official set, this makes a great display model; its smaller size allowing the possibility of building neighboring parts of the theme park!

Fantastic and absolutely perfect. I think one could not build a better version in this scale!

WONDERFUL!!!  I have been working on a significantly larger version of this since visiting the Magic Kingdom in March.  I wish I had taken your approach to size.

I am looking forward to see your large version of the castle!

I was recently wondering if anyone made roughly micro scale castles, and here we go, pretty cool

Cool design! Looks great and the angled walls certainly didn't make it easy!

That is astonishingly lovely. 10/10 would shrink down to microscale and visit again!
