Our First Trip to Legoland

Special thanks to LegoLand Orlando for sponsoring us tickets to enjoy the park. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 


As many times I have been to visit Orlando, Florida, we had never made time to visit Legoland Florida. My son has always had a love for Lego and had collected many of their very detailed sets over the years, so when we surprised him with a trip to the land full of tiny bricks, of course he was very excited!


We usually go on our Florida vacation during the first week in November because for some New Jersey residents it is during the NJ teacher's convention, voting season, and Veteran's Day so the school district started to give the students the whole week off. Meanwhile in Florida and in other states most of the kids in are school so the wait times and crowds aren't as crazy as in the summer or other peak times. This gave us the opportunity to walk around and take our time in the different sections of the park. 



One thing that surprised me about Legoland Orlando was the amount and variety of rides they had for every age group and trill seeker. My son isn't into rollercoasters so we kept things more on the mellow side. Some of his favorite rides were the Boating School and the Ford Driving School both found in the Lego City section of the park where kids run the world. They can even become a part of the rescue squad, put out fires and get their driver's license. 


Another area Darius enjoyed was the Land of Adventure, made with the explorer in mind. The Lost Kingdom Adventure is a fun, interactive game the whole family could enjoy and compete for a high score in a battle for treasure. As parents, we were able to catch a break in a shady, cool spot while Darius ran around in Pharaoh's Revenge a maze with foam balls whizzing and flying through the air. We also had fun searching for animals on the Safari Trek! Watch our 360 video here




Another must see at Legoland Orlando is Miniland, USA! Over 32 million Lego bricks make up this amazing area depicting well known tourist attractions and big cities from around the USA and even a galaxy, far, far away with their Star Wars installation. We took turns guessing which cities were which and seeing what every Lego minifigure was up to. Some much detail went into creating every scene you could literally spend hours in there. 





If you're wondering where you could grab a bite to eat while in the park. Try Pepper & Roni's Pizza Stop because who doesn't like pizza. (Plus they have a veggie option as well.) You won't be able to miss the singing Pizza Man MiniFigure standing outside. 


We really enjoyed our visit to Legoland, Orlando. It was like a breath of fresh air and something new and exciting to experience. To see more on our visit to Legoland Orlando, check out my InstaStory Highlight here
