    Can anyone point me towards a model (free or not) of Disney World's Cinderella castle. I know there is one on the Disney Experience site, but it is the birthday cake version. I am looking for the regular or normal version. Thanks in advance.

    Disney isn't hosting it now, but this was downloaded and stored when they were.

    Thanks for the link romfolmar, but that was the Slepping Beauty castle at Disneyland not the Cinderella one in Orlando. I still cannot find that one- in a regular scheme.

    The only model of Cinderella Castle from WDW that I know of is the book by Alan Rose. There are currently two copies on eBay, but I wouldn't look at those unless you're sitting down :eek:

    Do check auction sites from time to time though, I found my copies on eBay for under $25USD. I got one cut out and one uncut :mrgreen:

    You might check used book stores also.

    Here is the pertinent info:

    Title: Build Your Own Walt Disneys Cinderella Castle
    Author: Alan Rose
    ISBN: 0399-50654-3
    ISBN 13: 978-0399-50654-3
    Publisher: Perigee
    Publish Date: November, 1982
    Binding: Paperback
    List Price: USD 9.95

    Good hunting!

    That is the one that romfolmar had mentioned a couple posts back.
    It used to be free but when some pirates started selling his free models, he decided to fight back by not giving them out freely anymore.
    He still gives away a couple on a rotational basis but the really nice onesare all commercial models now.

    WRONG! My models are all free! Though, I haven't released them all yet. You can get the unreleased ones on CD if you can't wait. The CDs help pay for excess bandwidth. A couple of the CDs come with something that isn't available for download (like Davey Jones' key). Other than that, they're all FREE!:mrgreen:

    I've built the WDW Cinderella Castle that was sold at the park. It's nice!

    I just remembered that there is someone who is designing a Cinderella Castle paper model. I haven't heard from her in a while, so I don't know what's going on. The last I heard, she was planning on creating a Web site to share her models. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Thanks for the infoTrader Sam. The one that you mentioned on the site is the one or version I want to do. Post if you get more info on the lady's progress and if she puts the model on a site.

    P.S. The Disney Experience site is fanastic!! I am attempting a few of the kits now.

    Castle

    Is this the one. This is from the disney experience site and has got to be one of the best card models around. I've been building this with my 9yo niece for about 6 months now, she has done about 90/95% of the work on the castle. She has only got a few more things to finish it off now. It's not a hard build and she just took her time.

    I would suggest using a very good quality card for it though.

    Sorry guys. My niece has just told me she is nearly 10yr old, not 9yr old. She isn't actually 10 until Feb, but I suppose you all know how kids are.

    She was a little annoyed that I put a photo up of the model unfinished, so I better spend some time with her this week finishing it. She is a bit camera shy, but I will try and get a photo of her with it completed.

    Tell your niece she is doing a fine job and we like seeing progress photo's of models around here just as much as the finished models ;)

    Agreed. The progress pic makes me look forward to the finished project and to me a project isn't complete without a pic of the builder! :mrgreen: This one looks good. :thumb:

    I like doing build threads and putting progress photos up as much as you guys, but it was her build (even if she is only 9!), so I should have asked her.
