Ms. Joy's timing is PERFECT. Just after TPI leaks another big fat Universal theme park action movie mess, we discover that Legoland Florida is offering up an attraction with elegance and history.
Just an OUTSTANDING effort.

She has a positive voice and tells us about the things that she likes and teaches us things we don't know. She also takes great pictures and when I read her columns I just feel good about the world. I love that.
Another writer who has recently returned to the site always has to use really negative imagery and just goes to such dark places with whatever he's trying to communicate. I don't get it. Life is short. This is a great site for theme park lovers. I just wish every column could be in the positive, life-loving voice of Krista Joy or Robert Niles himself. I have never understood the value in all the dark clouds another writer chooses to summon.
Published: March 9, 2014 at 5:53 AMMy husband and I honeymooned in Orlando in 1986 and Cypress Gardens was one of the best memories. We roamed the gardens, saw shows, and posed for pictures. It is such a loss to think that others cannot share in this opportunity, but thanks to Legoland for starting the tradition again!

Published: March 13, 2014 at 1:37 PMI remember a very large mirror at Cypress Gardens that you would put you camera on a post and do a HUGE family selfie. What a great idea it would be to bring back that beloved mirror. Being a ride/coaster junkie I never really had fond memories of CG...but you know what they say..."you never really know what you have lost until it is gone". Legoland...thanks for bringing back a little of the CG greatness!
