Legoland Florida looks to expand to a Galaxy Far Far away

I know my DS is going to flip out about this.



Legoland Florida hints at Star Wars-themed expansion
By Sara K. Clarke, Orlando Sentinel

1:24 p.m. EST, September 4, 2012

Legoland Florida plans to announce an expansion at its Winter Haven park this week, apparently one with a Star Wars theme.

The theme park sent a video to members of the media Tuesday with scrolling yellow type over a galaxy background, reminiscent of the opening scene of Star Wars.

"In two days' time in a galaxy 45 minutes away...the esteemed council of Legoland Florida will reveal a top-secret expansion taking place within the park in the year 2012," the announcement said.

Legoland California has a Star Wars area in its Miniland, the part of the park which includes elaborate displays of Lego models. California's Star Wars section includes "seven of the most famous scenes from the six live-action Star Wars movies, as well as a scene from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars." The California park also hosts Star Wars days during which guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite movie characters and participate in Star Wars Lego building events.

Legoland said it will announced the details of the Winter Haven expansion at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday.

I wonder if this will just be in Miniland or if they will expand in other ways.

Lots of cool oppurtunities

It sounds like what they have here at Legoland Germany. Here's an idea of one of the scenes from the Star Wars miniland. (I'm not sure if this will show up.)
