As many of you already know, Legoland Florida will open its doors on Oct. 15th, 2011. Most of GFLUG has talked about going opening day & most of us have annual passes so we’ll be there for the preview days as well. I expect it to be crazy, so I’m mentally preparing myself now for it. 🙂
I’m curious to know how many people are planning to be there for the grand opening and how many of you are planning to hold off a few weeks before coming down?
In the back of our LUG’s mind, we’ve been thinking that we’d like to host an informal get-together — maybe see if the park will give fans a back-stage tour of the park.. maybe have a build/Q&A session with a Model Builder from the park, focusing on what it took to open the park… maybe asking the park for a small space to display fan LEGO creations… maybe organize a few after-hours activities for fans… something casual, not crowded, or fast paced… something that could happen a few weekends after the grand opening or after the major holidays, after some of the craziness has died down… So we’re looking at a few possible dates. Oct. 29 & 30 — Brick Or Treat Weekend — or something after the first of the year.
I’m not looking for commitments, just throwing the idea out and seeing what the fan community would like to see/do at such an event, if our LUG was to help plan one. I love to hear what everyone thinks.
