    I wouldn't think they would have anything different than any other state in the US. Am I to assume that they will be in Orlando?

    Last time we were in Florida we went to legoland at cypress gardens and get some real good buys in the lego store there. There is the brickly model only available at downtown disney lego store and we picked up some deals at Target and walmart was good for polys - have fun

    I live in Florida and only 25 minutes from Orlando. I go to the store about twice to three times a month. I went last Friday to get a couple PaB cups and as of now there is nothing special going on. I will keep you updated as I will be back coming Wednesday.

    I thought the state of Florida had an exclusive CMF; a guy in swim trunks holding a bag of oranges ;)

    I thought the CMF was a sunburnt man in trunks with a Mickey Mouse pair of ears and a bag of Gator Jerky.

    Seriously, do check out the discount shop at LL FL. Visited there twice and found some great stuff at great prices. Maybe your friend can text you with set numbers and you can respond while he is in the store....if he has room to pack some stash for you in his bags. The main item exclusive to FL seemed to be teeshirts, so make sure friend has your size. Not much else with FL on it. Which is very surprising with the number of tourists that stumble through FL every year.

    @legogal Can you visit the shop without purchasing a ticket to the park? I am in Florida myself in early September and may take a trip to the shop.

    They allow you 1 hour for shopping. You buy your gate admission then as long as you are out within the hour they will refund your admission. I did this myself last year.

    Yes, wear your running shoes and take a large backpack and roller cart so you make it back out to the front gate in time. It is a good walk into the park. Make sure you know exactly where you are going before you get there because I got lost several times in the heat, which messes with your brain. (And get in your credit cards and yourself shape before you go!!!)

    @Pitfall69 Ah dang it. Lol it is true too
  • BACbrixBACbrix AmericaMember Posts: 655
    All of your Florida jokes aren't really anything to argue. They are all true and this place is scary. I am going to Disney with my family tomorrow and some how hope to survive the endless waves of elders and foreigners.

    Seriously though, I think the OP was just wondering because it is a different country/state, they would have something exclusive to that area ie. The Billund Airport. It is quite funny when friends come to visit here from other countries. My wife's friend came from London and wanted to take a day trip to Florida from Michigan ;)

    For reference to other people who come to this thread, #40115 "LEGOLAND Entrance with Family" is exclusive to LegoLand. So if you aren't normally near one, it's a good souvenir to pick up.

    How is the PAB wall at the downtown Disney store?
  • BACbrixBACbrix AmericaMember Posts: 655
    Not bad. I went there for some 1x1 smooth light blueish gray tiles and clear 1x2 bricks to simulate ships flying in air. The wall is quite extensive but lots of 2x4 bricks in tons of colors. I notice they change inventory quite often. I go there about once every other week and they always have something new. I figure because that store has so much traffic. The worst part about the store is that deals are snatched up fast since 1000s of visitors come daily.

    Thanks, Grateful for that, just hoping there's something happening for the 4th July etc.

    I need 1x1 trans green tiles (x1000+). They have them?

    Still looking for buying tips in Orlando!

    Here's my take from another thread:

    "Downtown Disney Lego Store:  Aside from the awesome outdoor displays I was slightly disappointed with with the actual store.  The store is a giant oval with lots of space within to help with the flow of foot traffic.  Unfortunately there were very few sets on display inside the store.  Lots of stock and damaged box discounts (you have to ask).  Store staff was very friendly.  Pick-a-brick wall was disappointing.  Was expecting more variety.  No rare sets to be found.  Red-Five was missing from action (no biggie for me).  No Tower Bridges, Pet Shops, Cinema Palaces.  My guess is that these sets sell quickly as soon as they receive stock.
    Regarding Downtown Disney as a whole:  Lego store is towards the back.  It rains almost every day in Orlando.  Sometimes for hours at a time.  Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the rain. "

    Just went today as promised. Really stormy in Florida. Guess what? Death Star sold out in Downtown Disney! No other stock expected until late August. Good sign? Nothing going on. No promotions or deals. Damaged in back had Ewok Village for 209.99 but the box was trashed.spespels

    Poured for hours when we were at Downtown Disney.  Miserable experience.  Most of the restaurants had 2+ hour waits because there is no easy way out of the place.  Lego store is ok, but not as impressive as I was expecting.  Lots of damaged box options though.  
  • BACbrixBACbrix AmericaMember Posts: 655
    Yeah I agree. I recommend reservations. Ended up eating at Paradiso 37 because waits for more than 2 hours yesterday. I went to the water parks before hand and they were crazy packed. Orlando is fun and all but by 6 pm thunderstorms come in and too many people trying to leave at once make it a mad house. Lol back to the Lego I agree nothing special going on. I left the store just with an Ultra Agents set for the parts.

    Hah. We wound up eating at the same place because it had a short wait. Overpriced for what it was.  We were just happy to be out of the rain.
