Disney’s Magic Kingdom, and particularly Sleeping Beauty’s castle, has been a popular subject for LEGO builders. However, many of the attempts to recreate the magic “in the brick” have been in microscale. It’s not often we see someone take on a major re-creation of the park at minifigure-scale. Etel Enzos does just that, with a wonderful diorama of Orlando’s main attraction, complete with central castle and some of the surrounding themed “lands”.
Whilst we’re missing some of the Magic Kingdom’s headline attractions — Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and the Haunted Mansion are noticeably absent — this is more than compensated for by the nicely put-together version of the recently refurbished Fantasyland, including some snazzy lighting effects…
Big Thunder Mountain also makes an appearance, with its little red loco puffing down the tracks that twist between the mesa towers. “This here’s the wildest ride in the wilderness…”
Walt Disney said of his theme parks that they were built “to delight all members of the family, young and old, parent and child”. This LEGO creation follows along in that grand tradition of building things to make people smile — I think Walt would have liked it.
