You can go on a magical train ride with LEGO’s new Disney set


If you’ve ever wanted to go on a magical train ride with your favorite Disney characters, LEGO has officially got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the company’s newest Disney set.

LEGO has made it possible for kids (and adults, we’re not judging) to rebuild and immerse themselves in their favorite fictional worlds — from Star Wars to Jurassic Park — and now the company is teaming up with Disney to send collectors on a train ride with their favorite characters from the House of Mouse.

The Disney 71044 Train and Station set was unveiled earlier this week, and it features a motorized steam train, along with several cars, a track, and a Disney World-style train station. The set also comes with minifigures to wait for and board the train, including Mickey, Minnie, Chip, Dale, and Goofy. (What sort of journey these five would be headed on together remains to be seen, but it would likely involve plenty of shenanigans from Goofy.)

The entire set consists of more than 2,900 pieces, and the details within the train and its station will be impressive to even the most practiced LEGO builder. The inside of the train includes armchairs, tables, and even a tea set, while the train station features a ticket counter, café, and furnishings. (If real-life train stations were this nice, we’d travel via train everywhere.)

And all the miniscule details aren’t even the coolest part of the Disney Train and Station set. The battery-operated train can move and make sounds, and all of this can be managed straight from a smartphone or smart device. By using the LEGO Powered Up app, users can control the train they built, making this a LEGO set that will be fun to play with long after it’s been built.

The Disney Train and Station hits stores on September 1, right on time for the weather to cool down and keep all of us indoors — building LEGOs perhaps? It should be exciting to see what can be done with this addition to the collection, and it’ll certainly make a nice gift or decoration as the holiday season approaches.

The set comes with a $329.99 price tag, but if you’re willing to splurge, you’ll be able to feel like you’re at Disney every time you look at it. And that’s a feeling we all want to replicate, isn’t it?
