As you enter LEGOLAND Florida through the Entry Plaza from the parking area, you are in “The Beginning”. In turn The Beginning leads into Fun Town.
Guest Services and the Marketplace
Here you will find the usual Guest Services including Lost and Found, First Aid Facility and Lost Parents (where children can wait for their lost parents!).
In the Marketplace you can rent strollers (buggies), wheelchairs and Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECV) plus you purchase last minute items such as cameras and sunblock. On your way out you can also pick up packages purchased in the park, at the Package Pickup.
If you have purchased an Annual Pass online then you need to head to the Annual Pass Center where your temporary one-day Pass can be replaced by the full Annual Pass.
The Big Shop
One of the first things you’ll see as you enter The Beginning is the aptly named Big Shop (formerly the Jubilee Mercantile in Cypress Gardens day). The Big Shop is one of the largest retail LEGO stores in the world where you can buy from a huge selection of LEGO and DUPLO toy sets as well as LEGOLAND Florida souvenir merchandise including hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts and mugs.
In the Market Restaurant you will find authentic imported Danish pastries and freshly baked pastries, fruit, a selection of yoghurt and soft serve ice creams plus beverages including gourmet coffee, cappuccino, café latte, and espresso, milk, juice and cold drinks such as Pepsi.
It is a café, restaurant and originally a birthday party venue all in one. Party rooms used to be available for hosting birthday parties but at present LEGOLAND Florida are no longer hosting birthday parties.
Island in the Sky
The re-themed 153-foot high Island in the Sky, formerly known as the Observation Tower, used to lift you up to provide 360 degree panoramic views across the whole park and the Chain of Lakes.
First opened in 1983, the Island in the Sky was closed in 2017.
