Spending Time in Miniland USA at Legoland Florida
As much as I loved the area, it did get very hot in the afternoon sun. There’s not a lot of shade, so you need to visit early or right before closing. There’s no need to see Miniland USA in any particular order, but the Star Wars section is presented chronologically, based on the films. It will also be fun to see if you can figure out many of the iconic buildings and what they represent.
Make sure to check out the video to learn a little about the history of Legoland and how the parks got started. Currently, there are seven Legolands around the globe with more opening over the next few years.
Miniland USA at Legoland Florida: Star Wars!
The Star Wars section of Minland USA offers a chronological look at the prequels and original trilogy, brick-by-brick. Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for how amazing the Star Wars scenes were going to be. The cityscapes we mind-boggling and overwhelming. The Star Wars scenes simply blew my mind and were even more overwhelming. The level of detail is incredible.
Many of the regular cityscape scenes had minor animations, but almost every Star Wars scene had animation, sound effects and music. For the Star Wars fan, making a trip to Legoland Florida just for the Miniland USA area is well worth it.
Visiting Miniland USA was charming and completely unexpected. Even if you don’t have small children obsessed with Legos, the park is a great place to visit for theme park fans. And don’t forget to check out the historic Cypress Gardens section of Legoland Florida!
