Picture Yourself at LEGOLAND Florida


There’s a lot of firsts at LEGOLAND Florida. Many youngsters ride their first roller coaster. Families ride their first fire trucks in Rescue Academy. Kids explore their first maze at Pharoh’s Revenge.

What’s missing from this picture? A way to record and capture every first moment! Well we have great news for you! At LEGOLAND Florida there are many ways to stay connected to friends and family at home and remember all of the cherished moments lived through the park.

Smart Phone Cameras: Save some weight in the fanny pack and leave your big, bulky camera behind. Both iPhones and Android devices work throughout the park. Capture photos and upload them instantly to Facebook and Twitter. You can even tag LEGOLAND Florida on Facebook for a chance to appear on our own page! Although we encourage snapping and uploading photos, keep in mind that LEGOLAND Florida and Winter Haven only have 3G signals.

Facebook Check-ins: Show your LEGOLAND Florida excitement through social media channels. Let your Facebook friends know you’re at our park by checking in on Facebook. After they see your location show up on their newsfeed, they will want to know more about your trip.

LEGOLAND Photographers: Don’t have a camera? Not a problem! LEGOLAND Florida has professional photographers ready to capture your memorable moments in the park. Just look for a LEGOLAND Florida employee with a camera near the Walk-Around.

Attraction Photos: What do CoasterSaurus, Flight School, The Lost Kingdom Adventure and LEGO TECHNIC all have in common? LEGOLAND Florida has placed cameras on each ride to capture every scream, laugh and smile! Simply have fun and check out your photo at the ride’s exit. Photos are available to purchase in a variety of sizes.

Have Yourself a Happy Meet and Greet


Are you looking for a fun and interactive experience at LEGOLAND Florida?

Meet Buddy — our walk-around character mascot of the park. He’s tall, yellow, friendly, and loves taking pictures with LEGOLAND Florida guests. Buddy and his friends Max and Stormer have all agreed to welcome LEGO fans into the park throughout the day.

We are aware many of our guests may have never been to a character greet before, so here are some of our top tips!

1. First time greeters: Many of our guests will experience their first time greeting our LEGOLAND characters. This is truly a remarkable milestone in a child’s life and we understand many of our guests may be intimidated by the large figures. Show how happy you are to visit our characters by greeting them yourself. When a parent is seen hugging, shaking hands, and saying hello to our characters, children are more likely to model the behavior.

2. Autographs: Although some of our LEGOLAND characters may not be able to sign with their LEGO hands, it’s a great idea to bring an autograph book with a pen to the park.

3. Photos: We want our guests to understand photo etiquette during greeting times. We encourage taking photos of your children (or even yourselves) with our characters but please be courteous to all guests that would like to also visit.

4. Avoiding moods: Many of our guests may not want to say goodbye to our LEGOLAND characters. When we see this scenario, we recommend talking about what attraction you will visit next. It’s easier when a child knows there’s something else to explore.

5. Consider time: A satisfying lunch and an early character greeting makes a big difference. Beat the afternoon blues. Kids tend to have a more positive interaction with our characters earlier in the day.

As an added tip for out blog readers, if you see one of our fantastic shows, The Battle for Brickbeard’s Bounty or Big Test, hang around after the show to meet characters from the show!

Safari Trek Photo Safari


The Land of Adventure at LEGOLAND Florida is host to some of the wildest attractions in the park. One of the most popular is the Safari Trek. Guests drive a jeep through the wilds of Africa populated with over 30 lifelike LEGO animals.

With a minimum height requirement of 34 inches even the littlest guest can enjoy the attraction. Guests over 48 inches tall can even pilot their own car without the aid of a responsible rider.

All of the African animal models on Safari Trek were designed and constructed to be as close to lifelike as possible.

Did you know that Zebras have black skin and white stripes and that no two Zebras have the same pattern of stripes? Just like fingerprints on humans!

Watch out for the Elephant! His nickname is squirt!

Don’t miss the Bird and Mask sculptures at the entrance to the Safari!
