Family Holiday: Build the perfect day of fun at Legoland
Florida Vacation Guide to a LEGOLAND holiday for kids
45 minutes southwest of Orlando and 45 minutes from downtown Tampa there’s a Lego-lover’s paradise to explore on your next family trip! In October of 2011, LEGOLAND opened in Florida where Cypress Gardens once was. Though you can still admire the natural beauty of the area, you can also see Lego deer and other brick animals gathering near botanical gardens and mossy trees.
All that the kids are likely to notice, though, is the opportunity to play. Around every corner. This is a holiday for kids that they’ll never forget. Building blocks pop up all over the place. In the Welcome sign that leads you into the park, for instance. Made from the iconic little plastic bricks, it’s basically impossible for kids to not crawl through the O and the C.
The largest Legoland in the entire world, the 150-acre park in Florida offers so much fun for kids in its water park, at the more than 50 rides and activities and a 4-D movie theater, that they’ll hardly notice the gift shop that sells Lego sets of all description.
The park as a whole is geared towards those who travel with kids aged 2 to 12. Little ones will enjoy the two-story carousel while the older kids will love the roller coasters and the suspended ride. Come for a holiday such as July 4th or New Year’s Eve and stick around for the evening 3D fireworks display where Lego blocks explode in the sky!
Dining at LEGOLAND Florida
If you don’t want to leave the park to get lunch, there’s an all-you-can-eat pasta, pizza and salad buffet to eat from. For a snack in the afternoon, try an order of Granny’s Apple Fries – fried apples sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon!
