Legoland, Florida

Our next day was spent at the Legoland in Winter Haven about an hour outside of Orlando. The park opens around 10am so while we still had to be up bright and early it wasn't as much of a rush. It also closed early.. around 6pm. I had been to the California Legoland many many years ago so I was excited to check out the Florida version.

Growing up my brother and I lived for Lego's.. and I wanted to get D a bit more excited about playing with them too.. they haven't been is favorite toy. So here's hoping!

We started with a really cute welcome family picture..


It was a chilly day.. and our first ride was Island in the Sky.. it takes you 150 feet high and gives you a 360 degree tour of the park.. up that high and near the water it was bbrr..


Next stop was the carousel.. remember how I loved Disney's baby friendliness.. yea well Legoland not so much. Infants must be wearing shoes on all rides.. thank god we had H's shoes with us.. they may take them off and drop them mid ride but.. whatever! And on the carousel I could't sit with him on it.. I could stand next to him though.. so he just hung on for dear life for the 30 second ride.


Next up was the Duplo Valley.. this area was geared for the really little kids with a little train ride and a little tractor ride.. again H needed his shoes and couldn't sit in our laps and there was crying and the toddler geared rides seemed too tame for my roller coaster riding man... so we didn't spend too much time there..


We made our way to Lego Kingdoms. We rode on The Dragon.. my parent's sat this one out with H and D and I took a spin on Merlin's Challenge.


D participated in a Royal Joust


and then we were off to Miniland USA.. seriously this place is great.. you get totally sucked in looking at all the little details and before you know it an hour has gone by.. we had to force ourselves to move along. D loved pushing the buttons to make the married couple walk out the chapel, the boats to shoot water and the cars to go.. 


In the Land of Adventure, D rode the Beetle Bounce by his lonesome.. and we rode the Lost Kingdom Adventure.. my dad sat out with H.. this ride was very similar to Disney's Buzz Lightyear ride which H was allowed to sit on. We skipped the Coastersaurus.. D didn't meet the height requirement. 

We decided to take a break and have some lunch. We ate at iZone Panini in Imagination Zone.

Next up was Lego City.. we skipped Rescue Academy and took a class in Boating School


and then D when to Ford Jr. Driving School and M and I took a course in Flying School


Our last stop was Lego Technic.. the Pirate's Cove was closed for the season.. the Cypress Garden's were under construction and Imagination Zone was geared towards older kids. The only ride left was the Technicycle..



It was another great day.. if you have kids under 10 this is a great park.. any older and they may get bored quick.



And if you are looking to buy some Lego's like we were try the Extreme Brick Bargain's Shop first.. the prices were slashed in half..

  2. I've never been to a LegoLand, but it's a little disappointing that they're not so family-friendly as other theme parks. That photo of H on the carousel - oh, it makes me giggle! So cute, but you can tell he is hanging on for dear life. =0)

  7. Legoes rock. My brother had this firehouse set. I think I helped with the building of that. I like how the company doesn't skimp on the instructions.

  9. I didn't know Florida even had a legoland - it looks like it was a lot of fun; we've got plans to take our lot to the UK one when they're a bit bigger!

  11. I've been hoping to visit Legoland in CA eventually. My kids LOVE Legos and it seems like a really interesting concept for a theme park. It looks like you had a good time there. It does sound a bit difficult with a baby but you did okay with him. I can tell he had fun too. Your family photos are so nice, you're a really good-looking family!

  13. Love this review, Hena! This looks like heaven for our Oliver, who is 7. But you know, he really only got to be BIG into Lego about a year ago. It does take a while for them to get into the swing of things! Your poor little one...some of the rides might have been overwhelming for him. Oh well...you got some GREAT family pictures!

  28. Leggo's! How can he not like them :o( I grew up with them too. I got hand-me-downs from my older cousins but still loved all the random pieces and bodies missing heads hehehe. I had so much fun with them and I hope your boys will start seeing them in a new light too!
