WINTER HAVEN, Fla – It’s the home to New York City, Washington D.C., Las Vegas, the Daytona International Speedway and Kennedy Space Center, but soon it will be the coolest place to chill out at Legoland Florida Resort.

Beginning next week, Legoland Florida Resort will begin installing a new shade structure over the top of its popular Miniland USA.

“Our iconic area will begin undergoing a huge transformation to include brand new shade structures to make our LEGO models even more enjoyable to view by this summer,” officials said in a posting on Facebook.

The transformation is just a piece of the park’s plans to celebrate its 10th birthday this year.

The park is also throwing back its pricing on annual passes to celebrate the big year. Officials said the new Play & Party Pass will cost Florida residents $99. The pass allows guests to enjoy 12 months of admission with select blockout dates, free parking, admission to select annual events and discounts on other Legoland Florida tickets. For non-Florida residents, the next best annual pass is the “Awesomer Pass,” which retails for $179.

With the start of 2021, we will be celebrating our 10th birthday ALL YEAR LONG by encouraging you to #Be10Too with us! 🥳...
