Travel Log- Legoland Edition

If you have read some of my other posts you know that I have a son that absolutely loves Legos. He reads the magazines and plays on the Lego website all the time. I really wanted to take him to Legoland. I knew he would remember it forever. And I would too! I ended up taking a special trip with him for a long weekend and it was great.
Travel Log- Legoland Edition
We flew out on a Friday afternoon, Mother’s Day weekend. He had never flown before so this was a a special experience too. We stayed in Kissimmee, about an hour a way. Legoland Florida has a theme park and water park. I bought the 2 day pass so we could spend one day at each, which was perfect. We got there right when it opened and it wasn’t crowded at all. Parking is a little steep, around $15.
The water park is at the back of the theme park. I was very confused by this and kept looking for the water park entrance. You must enter through the regular gate and walk to the water park area and show your ticket again. They have a wave pool, splash pad, lazy river, baby play area and several water slides. The splash pad had several slides in it too. I sat back and relaxed while he played in this area for a long time. We rode the lazy river several times, jumped in the wave pool, but we spent most of our time on the big slides. They required an intertube and he loved it. One was a dark tunnel the entire way down. We must have ridden it 20 times.
The second day we headed to the theme park area. The rides were perfect for his age. He was holding his hands up while I was holding on tight. We saw a 4D Legends of Chima movie and a live show performed in a small amphitheater. We enjoyed walking around and looking at all the Lego creations. There are some really cool ones. There are also classes to take that last around 45 minutes but we didn’t do that. He also enjoyed spending his money in some of the stores. He ended up getting 2 sets. I bought t-shirts for the rest of the kids that didn’t come and they were reasonably priced around $10-$20. We ended up going back to the water park this day too.
We have been talking about going back since. Something I didn’t like about our trip was that I chose a hotel so far from the park. That was my fault and I should have looked for something closer. The Legoland Resort is opening soon and I would love to go back and stay there. I did like that the park closed early, around 5 or 6. Even with the park closing early and the 2 day pass, we were still able to get everything done without rushing. We were tired by the end of the day, but not totally exhausted. Oh, and make sure you bring plenty of extra Lego people, since you can trade with the workers there anytime.
Hope this gives you some information to help you plan your trip.
