Legoland Florida experiences...

Postby jmm7375 » Tue Oct 09, 2012 4:01 pm

Hey all,

I am new to the forum, but not new to Lego. Visited Legoland Florida at the end of August and although my family and I had a blast (Florida schools started and the park was empty) I left with a slightly bad taste in my mouth...

My wife wanted me to get a souvenir, but honestly I get myself all the Lego Star Wars sets I'd like. Anyway, I tried to find something I wanted or could use, but nothing seemed right. Finally after parading around the park I saw what I wanted, a wide brimmed navy beach hat that had the Legoland logo on it. I thought this would be perfect since I normally work at a daycamp over the summer and the sun and I don't always get along.

Well first of all, I couldn't believe it but the hat is not even for sale. Apparently it is only available to employees as part of their wardrobe. I was really upset by this, but I have a feeling I only wanted it more, since I couldn't have it. I thought this was silly not to offer a hat for purchase. I can understand not selling name pins which is like an employee badge, but a hat?

So I am crazy or do others feel my frustration too. I already contacted the person in charge of retail purchasing and they assure me they'll be in touch if something similar is available to the public. Somehow I doubt I'll hear back from them.

Be well.

I think it's understandable for a vendor not to offer "uniform" pieces for sale. It'd be like Target selling red polo shirts with their logo on them.

I understand what you are saying, but not every employee wears the hat and a ton of their merchandise has their logo on it. I liked the style of this hat compared to the visors and baseball caps they had to offer.

BTW, I've worn a red polo and khaki's to Target and people ask me for help :)

Right- it would make sense to sell a hat in a similar style but perhaps a different color scheme. For example, I have a yellow Lego polo shirt from an event I attended, but their store staff all wear black shirts. For a laugh along these lines, watch this. :-)

100% on the same page as you. I think employees where navy and khaki, so if they had black or red I would have been totally fine with that, just like your shirt. Video was cute simply due to the sheer # of participants. Thanks for your thoughts :)
