New Years Eve is over and 2013 is now two days old, but there was plenty of fun in Central Florida for the holiday. The theme parks are known for their fireworks displays to ring in the New Year, and Legoland Florida added its own twist to the festivities: dropping a giant brick. Click the video at lower left to see it.
Legoland Florida adds another twist to New Years Eve each year. Since the park is aimed at kids between the ages of 2 and 12, it celebrates at a more kid-friendly time than midnight. Instead, the new year gets rung in at 6 p.m.
New Years Eve capped the holiday festivities at Legoland Florida, which also included Santas in Miniland USA, Santa visiting with kids, tree ornament building, and a nightly tree lighting ceremony. Now there's a lull for a while, but it's a good time to get to the park and check out the Star Wars Miniland section that opened at Legoland Florida in November.
The Cypress Gardens section also changes with the seasons, and the cool weather is perfect for strolling among the greenery, visiting the famous banyan tree, and doing the Travelocity gnome scavenger hunt.
