WDW Cinderella’s Castle LEGO Set Rumors

Big news in Disney and LEGO land. Fans were surprised with a sneak peek at the newest Disney LEGO set, and it’s pretty spectacular. The photos appear to have been first released by PopSugar who’s apparently pulled the story as it’s not currently accessible, but of course, rabid LEGO fans screen copied the very detailed photos of the interior of the castle. Perhaps they had an exclusive and released them early; we won’t know until they put the story back up or release the photos again in another way. Many of them are already available via Google search and as noted by the update above, in the web cache of PopSugar’s website.

LEGO Disney Cinderella Castle - Walt Disney World 2016 release
WDW News Today (an unofficial blog of all things Walt Disney World) says the new Cinderella Castle Model Set fashioned in the likeness of the Walt Disney World version of the castle is expected to retail for $349.  They’ve used the same photos as PopSugar but not credited them, so I don’t know if LEGO released the info to a few outlets or if they inadvertently left the credit off. (see update above)
While we don’t know for sure if those facts are true, and we don’t know where the new Disney Castle set was reportedly unveiled by LEGO, we do know that this new building brick set will be hugely popular even at that price point. So if you want it, mark September on your calendar as that’s the date most LEGO fan sites are saying it will be released. Those same fan sites have rumored that this new highly collectible set will be sold exclusively at the Disney Store and LEGO.com and will carry the LEGO set number of 71040.

This new LEGO Cinderella’s Castle is said to have 4080 pieces and when completed appears to be open from the back for lots of pretend play. There seems to be plenty of accessories like a pirate’s chest, a spinning wheel, magic mirror, sewing shears, trunks, a grandfather clock, suits of armor, chandeliers, and so much more. The set appears to come with five minifigs – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Tinkerbell. I’ll admit, I expected the Fab Five and would have thought we’d see Goofy and Pluto.  But no worries, LEGO released an entire series of Disney Character minifgures under the name LEGO Disney Minifigures Collection just a few months ago.
