Get Tradin’ LEGOLAND!


At LEGOLAND Florida, we are constantly thinking of new ideas to increase guest interaction and create enjoyable experiences. Minifigure trading is a unique and fun way to meet new friends and Model Citizens throughout LEGOLAND Florida! There have been nearly 4,000 unique minifigures designs to date, all of them unique and special in their own way. There are more than 8 quadrillion (8,181,068,395,500,000) possible combinations of minifigures that can be made using all of the unique parts over the last 30 years.We’ve seen mobsters, explorers, skeletons, and spacemen — all in minifigure form.

Minifigure trading is an excellent way to meet and interact with our Model Citizens.Visitors are welcome to request to trade with any Model Citizen sporting a minifigure of their own on their nametag. Some park guests may decide to trade with other park guests while waiting in lines or awaiting a show to start. There’s no limit to the amount you can trade and swap- making it a great daytime activity.

Don’t have any minifigures to trade? Minifigure Market found in Fun Town has many pre-assembled minifigures for sale. You can also build your own minifigure from scratch and personalize it however you’d like or purchase a mystery pack for a minifigure surprise.

A fully assembled minifigure has three parts — legs, a torso, and a head. However many also come with added accessories such as swords, hats, backpacks and flashlights. Accessories are also fair in the trading game! If you see an accessory or body part you would like to trade, go-ahead.

So get creative and build your minifigure collection now!

We want to know, what’s your favorite minifigure?

LEGO® Star Wars TM Miniland Cluster Expansion Announced for Fall 2012


The Force is coming to LEGOLAND® Florida with a new expansion to the park — LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Cluster. The big announcement came earlier today when Adrian Jones, LEGOLAND® Florida General Manager, officially announced that work has begun on the LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland Cluster.

“Today, less than a year after our grand opening and only three months after opening the all-new water park, we are thrilled to announce yet another expansion of the park coming this fall,” said Jones. “We continue to add interactive experiences for our guests and enhance the memorable moments available at LEGOLAND Florida.”


Guests will follow a chronological path through the Star Wars™ timeline and retrace major events from each of the six live-action Star Wars™ movies, as well as a scene from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™. More than 1.5 million LEGO bricks will be used to build over 2,000 LEGO models in 1:20 scale. Some of the LEGO Star Wars™ models will be more than 6-feet-tall.

The LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Cluster is being installed on the path between Miniland USA and Land of Adventure. A grand opening date for LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland has been scheduled for November 2012. We hope to see you there.

Which scene from the six Star Wars™ movies or the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™ are you most looking forward to seeing as a LEGO model?
