In the restored Cypress Gardens there is a Banyan tree that was planted as a seedling in a five-gallon bucket in 1939 by the original Cypress Garden's owner. It's massive and often missed by most guests at the park, it's definitely a must-see!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Thoughts on post-Christmas yet pre-New Year's (or even a few days past New Year's) crowd levels? I may be visiting parents in Tampa after Christmas and am looking at options; I know its a super busy time of year for FL parks in general but looking into non Disney/Universal for maybe something less mobbed.

This weekend Theme Park Review was invited to visit Legoland Florida to participate in LEGO Ninjago Days, a new themed event offered on January 25th - 26th, February 1st - 2nd and February 8th - 9th, 2020. Inspired by the hit LEGO sets that have spawned a TV series, mini movies, a feature length film in theaters and a land in the Legoland parks (including this one), the popular franchise fills the park with activities, character experiences, unique entertainment and specialty food offerings to plus an already great family day at Legoland Florida.

Legoland Florida is a well spread out park with a large number of family-friendly, interactive attractions for everyone to enjoy. The classic charm of Cypress Gardens is retained in its original format and can still be accessed at no additional cost with standard admission from inside of the park. LEGO Ninjago Days is another great excuse to come out and visit this park. Guests, especially those with younger families will find a lot to enjoy during the event!

Interesting that the Legoland Playset has "Billund" (the original park in Denmark) on it's entrance sign.
Wonder if most parents will be able to explain what that means, to their kids. :wink:


Great tour of the park (and the food) during Ninjago Days. Thanks for sharing your visit, Adam.

Will eventually visit this park. I am sure I'd have a great time. I actually have a free ticket via the Lego Rewards system (bought a few larger sets). Thanks for the look!

If you look closely on the bottom right hand corner of the box, you'll see they actually have stickers with the names of all of the current Legoland parks, so you can make the entrance sign represent whichever park you want! I thought that was a pretty clever touch.

^^ Hah, I was going to add to my post that they might be including
stickers with the different parks' names. I didn't notice that in the
corner, honestly. Till you noted it. Cool that they've included that. :smile:

Interesting. So pre-booking encouraged not required. Masks encouraged but not required.

Also 'table service will be the only source for all food and beverages' surprises me a bit. I can see why no buffets or salad bars, but no quick service or kiosks seems surprising (unless this bit is incorrect).

Also I didn't realise how small Legoland was with a maximum capacity of only 12,000 people.
