Dad Builds Mini Disneyland Using 60,000 Legos


Are you bored during quarantine? Well, you should think about recreating the happiest place on Earth!

John Wayne Daugherty used his dining room as space to create a mini Disneyland that was built out of 60,000 Legos, reported Pop Sugar.

Daugherty’s family had plans to visit Disneyland this summer, but they were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The father has a YouTube channel that he dedicates to his Lego projects. He previously constructed Cinderella's Castle, Main Street USA, Marvel Land, and several other rides on his page.

Daugherty appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” where he talked about his project.

"My wife and I don't talk about how much it costs," he said. "We don't discuss that. Also, I have to limit it or I'll go bankrupt."

In June, Disneyland and unions representing over 11,000 theme park cast members reached an agreement after facing pushback over health concerns with the park's reopening plans.

Disneyland signed an agreement with 20 cast member union affiliates outlining plans to bring employees back to work amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“The signed agreement details plans that include enhanced safety protocols that will allow us to responsibly reopen and get thousands of our cast members back to work,” according to a statement from Disneyland, per the publication.

The move comes after Disneyland, which has been closed since mid-March, delayed the planned July 17 reopening indefinitely. The reopening relied on government approvals.

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel planned July 23 reopening has also been postponed.

This weekend, Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida will open on Saturday, July 11. Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will reopen on Wednesday, July 15.
