A Little Something for the Parents: Inside Jokes at LegolandLegoland California: The park's Miniland offers quite a few details for the grown-ups... if they take the time to look.

Let me give you the first couple of paragraphs, just so you can see the tone of the article (you need to read the entire thing!)
>>Hidden in a miniature Washington, D.C., at Legoland California, among thousands of characters living frozen lives, a businessman moons a presidential motorcade. Nearby, in a Lego replica of New York City, a man does his laundry in the nude. And at a New England harbor, beneath an overturned rowboat, two pairs of legs tangle suggestively.
Such adult-themed vignettes, played out in tiny plastic bricks, are a secret diversion at the Carlsbad theme park, where "master builders" make a sport of putting risque scenes into G-rated landscapes.
"It's definitely on the sly," said Bill Vollbrecht, a former master builder who recently left his job at Legoland.<<

I've noticed before a few details such as the ones mentioned in this article. And they've always made me laugh or chuckle. Nothing at Legoland is done in a prurient manner. But the master builders have filled the park with tongue-in-cheek details. Some, the kids will get (such as Prince Charming's cell phone -- which just *kills* my kids) and others are for the grown-ups.
Legoland's not best appreciated by people who aren't willing to endure a little sarcasm in their lives, anyway. They should stick to the earnestly innocent Magic Kingdom instead.
