We met early in the morning to settle in for the 3.5 hour drive from Copenhagen to Billund and the scenery was gorgeous from the double-decker bus. The driver was a hoot and seemed very excited to be taking usto Legoland; he even had ussynchronize our watches so that we could be "precise" with meet ontime! After a quick pit stop andmore driving we finally made it to Legoland!

I spent the day with Andrea and Kelly (Yay Vandy!) and loved getting to see the miniature versions of important cities in Denmark (Copenhagen Harbor, the palace, etc) as well as other places such as Sweden, Hollywood, and the Statue of Liberty! We went on variety or rides and had French Hotdogs for lunch. I enjoyed all of the rides, especially the water one where I got wet! My wholeback was soaked for at least another half an hour since I went down straightback. It was an interesting/cool ride because an elevator-like belt pulls you straight up in order to get to the top of the drop. All of the rides were very kid friendly and visual; it was cool to see all of the things that could be made with legos.

There were a lot of children in the park; however, in contrast to America, none of the children were on leashes. Interestingly, many of them had their phone number written on their arm in sharpie. The lines were also inventive since they had lego building stations that the children could play in while their parents went through the lines.

The parks was also dog friendly and we saw so many cute dogs walking around!! There were even drinking stations set up by dogs made of legos.

Fun fact: Cotton candy in Denmark is called "Candy Floss."

We ate at a traditional Danish buffet for dinner that included pickled herring, breadedfish, pork, salmon, cheese and grapes, freshly baked bread, Danish rye bread,liver paste, potatoes and pork, meatballs, and some whipped-cream/chocolatebits/jasmine thing, among others. I tried the liver paste on rye bread for the first time... and it'll probably be the last. The final leg of the journey was rather slow but I was so glad to have signed up for both the Legoland and rock-climbing trips!!

I loved LegoLand. Visited it in Oct. 2010.

Were there any secrets in the LegoLand's MiniLand displays?

I used your legoland page with some special needs kids as a treat for working hard during therapy. They loved it!!!
