    Since my pin is going to my mom (she got through the waiting room long before I did) then she’ll have to mail it on to me, someone else would surely be able to get pictures of the pin in person long before I will. In the meantime, this whole series is based on a picture book. The Frozen castle isn’t in the book as it is older and only has 9 castles in it, but of the other ones released so far, they’ve been 100% identical to the images in the book.

    Wow! What book is that? It looks amazing! I love that the rooms are ID'd! Are the Sleeping Beauty and the B&tB castles in it? :)

    Anyone know if there is a room ID for the Frozen one, actually? :)

    Went to get the Snow White Castle pin at my local store and every single pin the pieces didn’t match up. Didn’t end up getting one. Might try the other store next week and see if there’s are in any better shape.
    Wonder how they passed inspection?

    Thank you for the link to the book, my almost 2 year old niece loves Disney.

    One of the only “words” she can say “D” or “Dsss” and she gets so excited over Disney/ princess books. She’s going to love it! :)

    I linked to the book on Amazon in my post with the Snow White pics but it’s called A Home for a Princess in case the link doesn’t work for you.

    BatB interior is one of 3 foldout pages in the book so bigger than the others and slightly harder for me to photograph with my pupper wanting to investigate.

    This is a super cool looking castle! I kind of expected the tower! Love the purple and yellow rooms inside!

    I just received 2 copies of this book: one for friend and one for niece for Christmas. However, it's not Christmas yet, so I'm reading it, and it's actually really neat how they laid it out and identify all the areas.

    So I had to pause on the journal searching because of things getting kind of tight during the pandemic and after being initially disappointed with Mulan’s design my writing sister and I were thinking we would just pick five of our favorite to still work along with our stories.

    Well we got the opportunity during the rapunzel release to get the journals (thank goodness no more limit to 1 on them!) AND we were able to catch up with Snow White.

    .... and now Mulan is on the way. :D

    for anyone who are journal collectors, these are pretty big, but wow do they look beautiful together! And they have on the side “vol. I” , “vol. II” etc... I will for sure post pics later today when I get the chance. ;)

    See, I'm the complete opposite of you (well, sort of, haha). My original plan was to get the journals for the castles I really love ... pretty much the classic fairytale styles. So I was going to skip Mulan, Jasmine, and Merida. Then I saw the Mulan art and thought it looked WAY more powerful and appealing than I expected. So that was the point when I switched to "Might as well just get them all." :D And the biggest ha-ha is that it was SNOW's castle that almost made me regret that decision. It's fine, but it coulda/shoulda been better. :p

    that’s awesome! Well not awesome to the snow disappointment for you but awesome in the variety of Disney taste ;)

    For me, I was looking forward to Mulan but when I think of Mulan I always go to the blossoms look (the father daughter aspect of the story makes me melt each time I see that scene of them talking about the flower’s bloom). So when it came out, I was like, “duh, what was I expecting?” but I just wasn’t that impressed, and the timing of the release made it easy to initially pass. Now I can’t wait to see how it looks with the others! :D

    with Snow White, I think it appeals to me because I really like the soft color scheme in comparison to some of the others so far. It’s plain on its own, but cool in the set in my opinion. But I can see if someone was looking forward to Snow White how it could easily disappoint.

    Sorry that my pictures took so long!

    still waiting for Mulan, and I still feel like my pictures don’t do them justice!

    This will be their home for now- still working on my room decor since moving in but for now this will fit all of them very nicely and they are just the right height!

    And here is a close up of the “vol.” inclusion which I think was such a classic touch! It convinced my sister and I to change the plans we had for the journal and right our series in order ... each vol won’t be able to contain an entire series but their beauty will be enough of a motivating factor to fill them up and get some stories penned down! :D


    Thanks for letting me share :)

    ShopDisney has now updated its Castle Collection page but only says "Coming Soon." Making it Largely Useless. :D

    Thanks a much for keeping us updated with news on this set- Sleeping beauty looks, well, beautiful! :D

    I can’t believe I never updated after getting our Mulan journals- honestly I can’t say enough how pictures don’t do them justice. They are stunning! I couldn’t be happier with how they did Mulan- the colors as a whole compliment and contrast with each other very well- not sure if that’s the right way to describe it but in essence this is such an inspiring series and they have two happy writers anticipating the rest of the series =)
