My husband and I have 4 boys ages 2, 5, 7, 10. We decided to try Legoland instead of a Disney trip and it was well worth it. There was something for all my children to do in all areas of the park and there were even rides all 6 of us could go on together. While waiting in line the kids can play with Lego so they don't get bored and then meet you when it is time to get on the ride. The Lego water shows are hilarious and full of family fun. We spent two whole days and could have spent one more. the stores are amazing and are no more expensive than if you were shopping at a mall store. The 4D movie was a family favorite as well. Mini figure village is amazing. A must go with younger kids!! the only thing negative I would say is tht if you have older kids it might be kind of tame for them but the staff was awesome. We are planning a second trip!

Hi Megan,

Thank you for your review of LEGOLAND Florida Resort!

I'm so pleased to hear that you and your five boys (husband included!) enjoyed their time at LEGOLAND. It sounds like all of you had some truly memorable experiences during your visit. I hope to see you very soon for that second trip!

Thanks again,

If you compare Legoland to Disney, you will be disappointed. If you have a young Lego fan (ages 3-10), they will have a great time. Legoland does not offer the same level as service as Disney, but our family of 5 enjoyed our two day pass.

One complaint I have read again and again is in regards to Legoland's weather policy. The first day we were there, the park was essentially closed after 2PM. There was no rain, we heard one rumble of thunder in the distance and it remained bright and sunny all afternoon. Their policy seems like overkill. There are no announcements or information boards so there is no way to know what rides are closed and which ones are open. On the second day, many of the rides were closed again in the afternoon. At one point, we were standing near the playground area and overheard an announcement on an attendant's radio. I asked what it meant and he said everything was open. We walked over the dragon ride and waited for several minutes before someone came over and said the ride was closed. I told her we just heard an announcement that all were open. She said no. At that time, two security staff walked by and told her the ride should be open. She continued to insist that the ride was closed. After 15 minutes, the attendants at this ride finally opened it. Definite communication problems!

After the better part of two days we could not ride everything because of the weather closures. The park is only open from 10AM-6PM, so the afternoon is kind of a bust with Florida's summer weather. Between the short hours and heat/storms it is hard to get your money's worth. The park really should open by 9AM. In the future, we will avoid the summer months.

We ate lunch at the panini sandwich stand. All things considered it was good and fairly affordable.

We also used the water park one morning. It is nice (small) but good for the young children. We rented a cabana, but there was plenty of seating the day we were there. The cabana was supposed to include a host/hostess that would take our lunch order and bring it to the cabana. The first hour we were there, I never saw a host. When we did find one, he did not know the prices of the food. There had a been a recent fire at the food stand so there was very limited food the day we were there. I can't help but think they COULD have made other arrangements for food, but that is going above and beyond (more of a Disney thing).

The best part of our visit was there were no lines. We never waited more than 5 minutes for a ride. This is very desirable with young children. I am not sure if it always like that (we were there June 10-11).

We visited with our 5 year old son & 7 year old daughter. You can't compare this to Disney parks, so if you're looking for that type of experience, this isn't it. On the plus side, our kids had a GREAT time. They could ride all of the rides & the lines were not ridiculously long. They especially loved the roller coasters and water rides. They enjoyed the 4D Chima movie. It was blazing hot, so they were glad that we packed swim suits to play on the splash pads. There is not a lot for adults to do here & there are a lot of Lego product being pushed. However, this is a great (age appropriate) theme park for young kids. They market it for kids up to 12, but I think most kids over 10 would be bored here unless they were big lego fans. Food was pricey, just like other theme parks.

Hi Irene,

Thank you for your review of LEGOLAND Florida Resort!

I'm glad your kids had such a GREAT time as you wrote above! The 4-D Chima movie is awesome, but we have an even awesomer 4-D movie brand new to 2016 - The LEGO Movie 4-D! We hope you consider a visit to come and experience this exciting addition soon.

Thanks again,

Poor employee training and oversight plus some inadequate organization seemed to be responsible for the poor handicapped access we experienced. No tags or stickers are used to identify necessary wheelchairs and other devices so some attractions will not let you enter with them. We also noted quite a few unfriendly employees who did not know the meaning of "smile" and projected the attitude they really did not want to be there. This place was also only open f'rom 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (water park closed at 5:30 p.m.) so you don't get much time for your money. Overall, the park was well designed and laid out but not a lot there considering the cost (plus parking fee) and limited hours. Hard for me to recommend it all things considered.

Park is beautiful and tons of fun for young children who love Legos. Very expensive and not budget friendly but worth saving for a trip.
