5 tips to enjoy LEGOLAND Orlando

5 tips to enjoy LEGOLAND Orlando

So my kids have been wanting to go for awhile to LEGOLAND and we finally got to go and they were over the moon. Now before we go anywhere I like to  spend a lot of time trying to research so that I know what to expect.  So I have compiled a list of our top 15 tips to enjoy LEGOLAND Orlando based off of our experience and what I learned from my research.

1.  This is NOT just for LEGO lovers!

LEGOLAND is a must go to place if you are a LEGO lover however, it is not only for LEGO lovers. We have some LEGO lovers in our family and some not so much. But all of the kids had a BLAST at LEGOLAND! We only went for one day and we were able to do everything however, had we decided to stay for a second day the price only increases by $15. Which is an awesome deal!

2.  Bring mini-figures to trade.

I read about this online on a few sites but I didn’t buy any so that the kids could trade.Who knew this would be such a highlight? My kids wanted to do it! So I would recommend that you have your kids bring at least 3-4 to trade. In case you haven’t heard of mini-figure trading let me tell you a bit about it. Every LEGO employee wears mini-figures on their name tag(it’s kind of like Disney and the pins).  Employees are very gracious and willing to trade immediately.  There is also a “Mini-figure Ambassador”.  This employee can be hard to track down, but they have almost 100 mini-figures pinned to them ready to trade.  Could you imagine 100 mini-figures!!

3.  Weather can be tricky especially in Florida.

We all know just how unpredictable weather is so I would recommend that you need to be prepared for both rain and sun. IBe sure to check the weather when you head out to an amusement park, especially when flying and you can only pack but so much. When we went it was 90% chance of rain!! For a brief moment we thought maybe we should reschedule the trip but we decided to be optimistic. We only experienced a brief rain shower. It’s because of this I suggest you either plan on purchasing ponchos there or do what we did and buy them at the dollar store. I like these because you can fit them anywhere and they are disposable. I also recommend taking an extra pair of clothes for everyone just in case.

So the good thing about visiting LEGOLAND when there is a high chance of rain is that the crowds are so small. It was AWESOME! not crowded one bit. We did have to wait a bit for some of the rides to get backup and running but there are so many things to do when it’s raining that you won’t even miss them. Here are a few of our recommendations of things to do while it’s raining at LEGOLAND

  • The Imagination Center– here the kids can build cars and test them on a track, you can also test your building ability with an earthquake simulator or sign up for free building classes.  The great thing about these classes is that they are 45 minutes long.
  • Lost Kingdom Adventure-this ride is an indoor roller coaster type ride where the participants are asked to help find a captured explorer. My kids really enjoyed this ride they went on it a few times.
  • DUPLO Farm– in an indoor playground especially made for younger children. These are also the best restrooms in the whole park.
  • You can go to the Wells Fargo 4D Theater and check out some shows. We got to see LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS 4D: The Book of Creativity. This was a good show we really enjoyed it.
  • Another great thing to do while it’s raining is get some FOOD!!! They have many different options. We opted for Fun Town Pizza and Pasta Buffet it was REALLY good (don’t forget to check out our review HERE)
  • Another place to find shelter from the rain are the stores!!!

4.  Outdoor Activities- Age and Height

There are many many things to do outside. We really did LOVE this park. We went when there wasn’t alot of people so we were able to send the kids ahead of us (within eye sight) to go scope out the next ride. They loved the little bit of independence they got and we loved not worrying about them getting lost in a crowd of people.

Aside from the rides we had a blast visiting Miniland USA. The kids enjoyed all the interactive buttons at the stations and we were just in awe of how amazing everything looked!

5.Saving Money at LEGOLAND FLORIDA

When planning I discovered there were a wide variety of ways to save money at LEGOLAND. You can use the coupons from the free LEGO Magazine.  Normally the coupons are for buy one adult, get a child free. However, you do need to do this ahead of time due to it being a bi-monthly publication. So we recommend If you’re planning your trip several months in advance, sign up for the magazine to get the coupons early. I found out about this later. So we had already opted for the GO ORLANDO GO PASS. And let me tell you this was seriously one of the BEST purchases I have EVER made. We had so much fun with this pass and we saved SO MUCH money$$$. Check out our post on the GO ORLANDO GO PASS.

Keep on BUILDING those MEMORIES!
