First look at Legoland Florida’s park map and logo merchandise

by

Legoland Florida started welcoming guests to their front gate this weekend to pick up their annual passes. Although the gates to get in Florida’s newest theme park are not yet open, those picking up their passes had the opportunity to buy some Lego merchandise, get a park map and meet a couple of Lego characters.

The line to pick up passes was very long on Friday and Saturday. Most waited about two hours. But Legoland officials were doing all they could to keep guests comfortable. They were offering rides to and from guest’s cars, handing out free water and they set up as many tents and fans as they could find.


Since everyone getting a pass needs to be present (because your photo is on your pass), a kids play area was set up full of Legos. Pictured here is the park’s general manager Adrian Jones making sure the kids are having fun while their parents wait in line.


Here’s Lego character Max. He made regular appearances to meet and take photos with the guests as they waited.


Buddy was also out and about the entrance area.


While there won’t be any Legoland Florida specific Lego building sets, the park’s logo will be on hats, shirts and more in the park’s many stores when it opens. Pictured here are some of the various hats they were selling at the pass pickup. The photo at the top of this page shows the grand opening logo on a hat and T-shirt.

The annual passes are hard plastic with the guest’s photo on them. To get in the park, guests just need to show their pass. There’s no fingerprint scan like at most other Florida theme parks.


The official park maps were being handed out to guests. Here’s a scan of the inside of the map. Click on the photo to see a larger version.


Legoland already announced they are keeping the gardens part of the park, but it’s nice to see they also kept the Cypress Gardens name. Look closely and you can also see some Southern Belles wearing their large dresses. Look for them to be made of Legos.


Legoland Florida has extended the days available to pick up annual passes and avoid possibly even longer lines at opening. Here are the pickup days still to come:
9/18 until 5 p.m.
9/22 from Noon to 5 p.m.
9/23 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
9/24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
9/25 through 9/30 from noon to 5 p.m.

Legoland Florida officially opens on Oct. 15, 2011. Annual passholders are invited to preview the park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 10, 12 and 13. AAA members can purchase tickets for $34.99 to preview the park on Oct. 7 or 8.

I’m wondering why you thought the grand opening 2011 t’s would be there, they can’t have them around all year long, or even the next year.
