The Big Shop
Like many retail shops, this store tends to be fairly crowded. Be sure to make a tour of the outer walls of the shop. The motorized Lego displays are quite captivating. They are build at "kid height", which means that the controls are also at wheelchair height.
To board the boat, you must step up over the 6 inch edge of the boat, and down 1 foot onto the seat. There is then a second step of 1 foot down onto the floor of the boat. The boat is not anchored, so it does bob and move in the water as you attempt to board. You may need assistance from a member of your party to board.
Miniland covers the heart of Legoland. A replica of 5 areas of the US, it is made up of over 20 million bricks on a 1:20 scale. The entire area is accessible, though some parts may not be visible while seated in a wheelchair (you need to be taller to see some elements). On the other hand, there are several elements that are more easily seen from a wheelchair.
