My Lo is a 6 year old little boy obsessed with Legos. To be completely honest, obsessed is probably a term used very loosely he is enamored by legos. It never ceases to amaze me seeing this little 6 year old boy construct these elaborate Lego works of art in hours and sometimes minutes. So it was such a treat when we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Lego Land Florida. It was truly a dream come true for him. I have to say not only for him but for us as well. We were lucky enough to receive two tickets from the wonderful company to go check the park out for ourselves. I honestly didn't know what to expect. I knew there would be a lot of legos(a given) but I wasn't prepared for the fun time we all had as a family.
Legoland Florida is nestled in the sweet town of Winter Haven Florida. A town that once boosted the famous Cypress Gardens Amusement park. I remember going there as a little girl and was so sad to hear it closed. However, I quickly realized Lego Land not only took the park over but kept the beautiful gardens and glimpses of the famous water show alive and well for a new generation to enjoy.
You will find Winter Haven about 40 minutes South West of Orlando, Florida. It sounds a bit daunting as a tourist to make that drive but with the amount of hotels in the surrounding towns/cities this really isn't a big deal. You can easily get some great hotel ideas and suggestions off the Lego Site.
The park is easy to get to and there are signs in order to guide you straight to the park with no problems. Parking is easy and quick. You can purchase even pre purchase your parking ticket ahead of time for a discounted rate online.
All the rides are Lego Centered or "scaled to people Size" I even got to go on many with my kids. I felt like a kid again enjoying all these fun rides!
Not only did my Lego Fan have fun but the girls did as well. Between rides and face painting the fun was non stop.
- The park is 40-45 minutes from Orland so if you are staying there plan your drive accordingly.
- The hours will vary daily so make sure and check online to see what the schedule is.
- Go online to buy tickets. Chances are they will be cheaper there than if you buy them at the door.
- You can also make reservations for your hotel through their site and many of their hotels offer ticket packages as well!
- You can take your stroller or rent one there for a minimal price.
- Make sure your little one takes their minifigures with them so they can trade them with park employees. This is really a fun thing to do for them!
- The price of food at the park is actually very reasonable. There is an Italian Buffet as well as a fried chicken place with family prices. Lego yearly pass holders get a discount for food,and many other perks.So if you can this is a great buy!
- This park is really geared towards kids 5-12 years old. Kids that are older will still enjoy it (I did!) but little ones will really get a kick out if it.
