It’s a microscale version of 2016’s enduring 71040 The Disney Castle, offering a cheaper and more accessible way to demonstrate your love for Mickey and the gang. Only one Mickey minifigure is included in this set, though, so you’ll have to supply the gang yourself.
Retailing for £30.99 / $34.99 / €34.99 for 567 pieces, 40478 Mini Disney Castle is decorated in the colours of the current real-life castle, which was repainted in 2020 to reflect Cinderella’s 70th anniversary. That means dialling up the blue and gold highlights, in contrast to 71040 The Disney Castle’s muted dark blue and tan, but it only makes for a more eye-catching model.
You can learn more about 40478 Mini Disney Castle in our detailed review, but to cut a long story short: it’s a brilliant exercise in microscale building that should also be celebrated for how affordable it is compared to 71040 The Disney Castle.
