    My boyfriend wants this so bad. Almost bought it for him as a combined birthday Christmas present but he wasn't buying it. He's a fellow Disney running/lego nerd!

    We got one disney blind bag at the mall for kiddo and it was Ursula. She was thrilled because she has Ariel and was using a random robot minifigure as Ursula up to that point :)

    Super jealous of that castle!

    That looks really cool. Maybe I'll attempt it if they make one of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, but we'll have to see.

    I am looking into getting a few sets this year. I'm dreading dusting them! My son has had several sets through the years and keeps them on his bookshelves but I find them impossible to keep clean. Any ideas??

    Depending on the mass of the set, try a can of compressed air, like for cleaning keyboards. Obviously, minifigures won't 'stand' for this.

    Also, men's shaving brushes make pretty good light-weight feather dusters.

    I built mine as soon as I got it, but had to take it apart because my cat is a jerkcat and liked to pull off all the pieces at bath them around the room. So many times I woke up and wondered "what happened to Tink and all the white spires??"

    I would love for Lego to make a giant one of the Shanghai castle!

    Do I need to spend money on legos? No. Am I going to? Probably.

    It appears to be out of stock now again. Available only a few hours for the second time.

    I can't remember if I shared what I did with my castle. I incorporated it into a Main Street USA:
