Earlier this year, we picked up the LEGO Disney Princess Arendelle Castle Celebration set for the girl. She owned a few of the LEGO sets she received for Christmas, so we allowed her to trade those in and use some of her Christmas money, to trade in for this set.
This set was tons of fun, so I took what will seem like a million photos. Trust me, you’ll appreciate it!
If you haven’t come across this set, it’s probably because you’ve been under a log. No, really. How could you not be affected by the Frozen craze that has swept the world. So if you need to know more information about the (brace yourself for an affiliate link…) LEGO Disney Princess Arendelle Castle Celebration set , here is the description from the LEGO shop page:
Celebrate Anna’s birthday at Arendelle Castle!
Help Elsa and Olaf prepare the courtyard outside for Anna’s party, but keep the Snowgies away from all the sweets! It’s time to wake Anna up and search for her birthday presents hidden in the castle. What kind of presents will she get? Get ready at the vanity in Anna’s bedroom. Search for gifts in the living room with its grandfather clock. Then slide down the roof into the courtyard for cake and birthday celebrations!

On the front of the box, you see a full photo of the castle build.
On the back of the box, you see more of the details of the build and the interior of the castle.
When you open the box, you’ll find a bound instruction booklet, 4 bags, a slide, a sticker sheet and 2 baseplates. Elsa is out and built in the photo above, only because the little brick was anxious to get her built. So you know we opened the first bag immediately.
If you haven’t seen the sticker sheet, it’s worth taking a look at. The LEGO designers did an outstanding job with the detail, in my opinion.
Here is a closer photo of the Elsa minifigure build. She comes with a pretty neat yellow cape sporting pink flowers.
I love those itty bitty princess crowns.
Once the excitement of building Elsa subsided, the little brick got right to building.
One of the first pieces they have you build are the party balloons. I absolutely love the colors.
And there’s also the cake table. Looks scrumptious, no?
The first bag consisted simply of laying the groundwork for the build and the additional items not part of the actual castle.
Once you’re done with the bag, you’ll end up with this first floor foundation. You also build Olaf and the Snowgies, but I couldn’t pry them away from her long enough to snap a photo of them individually.
These were the extra pieces left over after building the first bag. Notice you receive an extra crown, carrot and reindeer antler. Those will come in handy later, I’m sure. Who hasn’t lost a carrot nose?
Not to be left out, Anna gets built at the start of bag 2.
Bag 2 is also where you really start to see a bit of the final build come together. Don’t mind the upside down tile brick with the banner sticker in the above photo. The girl put it on that way, insisting it was windy that day…
And look at that slide!
Notice the frozen water fountain? I love that detail.
On the backside, you see more interesting views in regards to the build.
Here you will find a fireplace.
There’s also this awesome standing clock with a little storage area on the side and a chaise in front. The storage place is where Anna and Elsa keep their skis.
After she finished with bag 2, she had these pieces left over.
This was also our stopping point for the day. While the build does say ages 6-12, this was quite a bit of concentrating for her and she was wiped out. It was time for a break.
On the second day, we picked up with bag 3. No minifigures here, but this is where the majority of the second floor of the castle gets built.
There were tons of foundational elements to put together in this bag.
This is what you will have once you finish this bag.
And this is the backside of building bag 3.
In more detail…
Yay! Fireplace! I love fire places…
When we finally got this bag completed, it was time to put Elsa to action!
After bag 3, we had all of these pieces left over.
Bag 4 is the crowning glory of this build. It adds the peaks to the castle.
And the shining frosty star at the top of the build.
Notice the awesome icicles on the awnings. (You can also find these in many super hero and ultra agents themed sets.)
On the back side, you will have added a royal bed and used the last of your remaining stickers.
And while the other bags gave you tons of pieces left over, this bag will only give you 3.
All in all, it is a beautiful build. You can take a look at it from all sides in the photos below:
My take on the LEGO Disney Princess Arendelle Castle Celebration Set
This is absolutely one of the more entertaining sets in the LEGO Disney Princess theme. With Snowgies, balloons and plenty of colors that pop, there is tons of playability here. Also, who can forget about the slide? So much fun.
When the little brick’s friends come over, this is one of the sets they all gravitate towards. It is certainly well loved in this house. We highly recommend it!
