"First off I want to say this LEGO set was a pretty awesome build bottom to top with tons of very neat details put into every corner to each section of this set! When I first saw this set was available early to VIP's back in August I contemplated on getting one because of the cost of the set. Then after seeing it sold out so fast both in August and then on its release date in September I realized I just had to go for it and just get one! So I called the LEGO store nearest to me and off I went!
So the build took me around 12-13 hours over the span of a few days to complete. Once you are all done with completing the construction of this set you'll truly appreciate the time and thought that was put into creating and constructing this amazing piece of art. The Disney Cinderella Castle has a lot of neat features from a variety of different Disney films which LEGO did an outstanding job with putting so much detail into each and every section.
I did go a little above and beyond by illuminating the entire castle. I illuminated the outside with colorful lights just as it would look at Disney World. Then I also installed lights on the interior. I was able to do all of the lighting without gluing or drilling holes through the plastic.
Overall this is a great set to build, own and I would really recommend getting your hands on one! I will say that this set is not the set you would want to play with once it's built other than displaying it."
