I think a meetup would be nifty! I'm not much of a group event planner, I'm more of a here's a time/date/place, let's get together type person! But I live in Orlando about 15 minutes from Disney, so I'm up for meeting people anytime! But I think a group thing would be awesome! I didn't get to go to the last meet up Sandrita did.
Here are the photos of Duffy & Tourguide Ted's (his friend from the UK) adventure at Legoland Florida yesterday!
Duffy & Ted met Buddy, the Legoland mascot!
Having fun in the Duplo playground...
Our first rides were in the Lego Kingdoms section of the park. we rode The Dragon roller coaster & a kind of Himalaya style ride themed to Merlin's magic train or something...
Next up was Land of Adventure!
No Duffy, that's not Indiana Jones!
On the Lost Kingdom shooting ride, Duffy kicked Ted's butt!
Next we visited Lego City and had some fun...
We had lunch at the Fried Chicken Co, which was themed to a 50's diner.
Chicken wrap! It was pretty good.
Duffy ALWAYS has food on the brain...
The bears met this guy in the Imagination Zone!
The bears are twisted.
Next we visited the Cypress Gardens section of the park. Legoland is working on restoring the historic botanical gardens in phases.
The is the famous Banyan Tree. Duffy said it looked like something the Ewoks would live in on Endor.
The famous and historic gazebo!
Over by the pirate themed waterski show...
We checked out Miniland, which is really cool!
Bear attacks Paris... film at 11!
Hey! This isn't Epcot!
Great Movie Ride?
There's also a Star Wars section to Miniland!
We were getting tired...
So a snack was in order to refuel... Granny's Apple Fries! They were sooooo good!
Took a couple spins on the carousel...
The guy running the carousel was cracking up when they saw us strapping the bears onto their own horses. He was all, "That is so cool! I've never seen that before!" and he was getting other employees attention and pointing to the bears as they went around. It was quite the scene! They loved it!
Here's a video of the first time we rode. I already posted the video of the 2nd ride.
We did the Island In the Sky next. It gives a pretty awesome 360 view of the park and surrounding area. It's a ride left over from the Cypress Gardens days. Glad they kept it.
Checked out the Lego Factory to see how Legos are made.
A stop in the gift shop for some playing and souvenirs...
It was finally time to go.
But.... the day isn't over yet! It was rush hour and we wanted to avoid traffic, so Ted and his humans invited us to hang out at their vacation home in nearby Haines City for awhile.
Duffy finally got his scooter! We're going to pain the pink parts blue and add some Tampa Bay Rays decals.
While the humans talked, the bears had a pool party! The other bears are Frank (the big one) and Theo (the little one).
Finally it was time to head back home...
Our loot! We got a postcard, a Legoland magnet for the fridge and a Laval keychain from the Legend of Chima (which is a new section of the park that's opening this summer!).
