Last week we went to LEGOLAND for the first time, and I have to tell you, I was really impressed with the park! If you have yet to visit this LEGO wonderland, I’ve compiled some important info for your first trip!
Here’s What to Expect on Your First Trip to LEGOLAND!
From the moment we arrived, everything was really easy going from parking to having our bags checked. One of the things I was really happy with was with the fact that you can bring in your own food. We were able to save some money since we have four mouths to feed, although the food at Legoland is quite affordable.
It’s nice to have a warm meal to fully embrace the theme park experience. You’re certain to get your fill at Fun Town Pizza and Pasta Buffet. That’s right! All you can eat for $15.99 for adults and $9.95 for kids. If you do not want the buffet, they have some really good looking Paninis at Panini Grill or mouth-watering burgers at Burger Kitchen. And to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can top it off with some ice cream from Firehouse Ice Cream.
Most of the rides have a 44 inch height requirement, so my oldest had such a good time! His favorite ride was the new Ninjago ride which debuted in January. All four of us got a kick out of having to do ninja moves, and let’s just say they were not professional moves! Even though my one year old could not ride some of the rides, I was able to entertain him while my husband and four year old rode the rides.
If you have a little one, they have something called Tot spots. It is a miniature playground for toddlers, so I loved that my little guy could play with LEGOS, go down slides, and run a round. The park is divided into different areas so there is a little bit to do for everyone in the family. From Duplo Valley, Heartland Park, and LEGO City, the fun does not stop.
If you like Pirates, you will really enjoy the Pirate’s Cove water ski show by the lake. If you just want to get out of the sun for a couple of hours and relax, I recommend heading over to the Wells Fargo theater. LEGOLAND has a 4-D movie theater that seats 700 people. You can watch”The LEGO® Movie™ 4D : A New Adventure”. Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny reunite at the invitation of a shady new character, Risky Business, who plans to open a curious theme park bearing a suspicious resemblance to LEGOLAND.
LEGOLAND’s new Beach Resort opens in April, 2017. Additionally there is the LEGOLAND Hotel, which is literally right next to the park. The five-story, 152-room Hotel immerses guests into a creative LEGO® world designed to bring children’s imaginations to life. More than two million LEGO bricks make up over 2,000 LEGO models throughout the hotel. The LEGOLAND Hotel is built for kids to take control, with LEGO surprises around every corner. Here’s some info about the hotel.
Ticket prices are also affordable and right now with the purchase of one adult ticket and a coupon from McDonald’s, kids get in free. Check out this link for prices, and special events such as Star War Days.
LEGOLAND also has a waterpark! We *just* missed the opening of the waterpark, but from what I saw, it’s amazing! I can’t wait to return and check it out! It is literally right next to LEGOLAND!
I am so happy we live in Florida, we have so many annual passes to choose from. If you do get an annual pass from LEGOLAND you get discounts at SeaLife Aquarium, Madame Tussauds, and The Orlando Eye!
