The journey of a lifetime aboard the LEGO Disney Princess carriage
Once upon a time, a LEGO Disney Princess touring carriage visited 65 locations across the UK. The carriage was made out of 125,755 pieces of LEGO and took 377 hours for our LEGO builders to make. Throughout these LEGO events, Princes and Princesses were encouraged to take a royal photo inside the carriage and upload to social media channels using #LEGODisneyPrincess. Intrigued guests could enter a competition to win a prize of a lifetime – a trip to Disneyland Paris with LEGO.
The experiential tour visited Smyth’s Toy stores and Tesco shops across the UK, and a few lucky Princesses and Princes guests from across the UK were selected at random for their chance of winning a trip to remember forever.
When that day finally arrived, the PrettyGreen team were ready for a very special adventure. It was 5am, and as you would imagine, not a soul was stirring. Well that’s almost true… except our competition winners and influencers who sprang out of bed, far too excited that the big day had finally arrived, and a wonderfully magical adventure awaited.
Everyone was packed and ready for the experience of a lifetime, they just needed to get out of the house on time in order to catch the LEGO Disney Princess Eurostar train.
The royal guests were welcomed by our very own Lady-in-Waiting Mabel, who guided the guests onto the train carriage and the children became immersed into a world of LEGO Disney Princess. Taking inspiration from the LEGO Disney princess sets, the carriage was dressed with LEGO Disney Princess seat covers, cushions and building plates for kids to build their own Disney Princess creations.
Storytimes, building activities, songs, quizzes and colouring activities kept the children busy and our lucky Princes and Princesses left the carriage happy, with heavy bags full of LEGO sets, key rings, a LEGO passport and polaroid photos in a frame to remember their trip by. To make the day even more spectacular, very special guest Alesha Dixon and her friends and family joined the magical ride! Not to mention, Ruby Rube, Cupcake surprise Toys, Emily Tube, Katie Baby, Toby and Roo too!
After a flurry of excitement on the train, they pulled into Disneyland Paris station. The children, unable to contain their excitement, waved goodbye to Butler Jeeves and Lady-in-Waiting Mabel, thanking them for creating such a magical ride aboard the LEGO Disney Princess carriage. Getting on a train would never be quite the same again.
