Our Visit To Legoland Florida

We have been to Florida on numerous occasions, but we had never been to Legoland Florida. Legoland Florida is only about 45 minutes away from Disney World. This trip we decided to pay Legoland a visit. We were on a family vacation and decided to make the most of it. Here are tips, tricks, and advice about visiting Legoland Florida.

Legoland Florida

My daughter is 4 and while she likes the Disney Princess Legos that is pretty much the extent of it, so I wasn’t sure how she would like Legoland.  She actually loved it.  It was really nicely done.  It was fun for those of us that aren’t obsessed with Legos.


I’m a sucker for a waterskiing show.  Ever since I was little I have had a secret dream of being one of those ladies in a waterski show.  I was quite impressed with the people who waterskied dressed as Lego men!

I loved Miniland.  It had small versions of Kennedy Space Center.

New York and more.  They were so detailed it was amazing.

They had rides for all sizes which was nice.  They have a couple roller coasters, but over all not a ton of huge thrill rides.  If you are looking to buy some Legos there are PLENTY of stores to do that at.


The park use to be Cypress Gardens which was known for their beautiful gardens.  The plant life is still gorgeous and exceeded my expectations.

Legoland Duplo Farm

My only complaint was that Florida in the summer is tough.  It was about 100 degrees with high humidity and we were all melting.  I would’ve liked to do more while we were there, but it was just too hot.  They did have lots of places to hide out in air conditioning.  My daughter loved the indoor farm playground in the Duplo area.  I recommend going just not during the super hot summer months if you are sensitive to heat.  We had a ball though and are planning to go back when it isn’t summer.

I thought these Star Wars Lego people magnets were super cute. (Princess Leia, Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, Han Solo and Yoda).

    I just took my kids to Legoland California! It was amazing. My favorite Star Wars character is Luke Skywalker (He gets even cooler in the books.) I do love legos. My husband and I grew up playing with them. We passed this love on to our kids (Lucas 7 and Emma 4). They were especially excited to see the Star Wars exhibit……..though my husband seemed the most excited of all of us…. πŸ™‚ We would love a lego Star Wars magnet for our fridge.

    Let’s see – Yes, we’ve been to Legoland and my oldest son LOVED it! Our favorite SW character is Han Solo. I love Lego bricks because it really stretches my kids’ creativity! I didn’t grow up playing with Lego bricks but I DO have three boys who love them!

    We haven’t been to Legoland, but with two lego fans, it’s definitely on the list! My favorite star wars character is Yoda. We all love playing with legos — it’s fun, my boys now have some of my old sets and they love building with them.

    Both my sons and my favorite character is definitely Darth Vader.

    We were JUST at Legoland!! What day were you there? Wouldn’t it be funny if we were there the same day and didn’t know it? Both of my sons (9 and 2) AND my hubby (good therapy for his TBI and PTSD) love Legos – we have THOUSANDS in our house.

    What a fun giveaway! I’ve been to Legoland California twice, I LOVE it! My favorite Star Wars characters is Boba Fett. I have always been really obsessed with Lego’s, party because I grew up with them! I don’t have any kids, but my younger brother also loves Lego’s πŸ™‚

    I have never been to Legoland, but it seems like a really cool place to go. I may need to put it on my list of places to take my son. I grew up playing with Legos, my parents had to buy them all the time…tended to take them outside and leave them a lot. My son and I love playing with Legos now he has gotten a little older. It is our go to on rainy days…tent and legos!! I haven’t seen Star Wars in forever…may need to rent that this upcoming weekend! I loved Luke Skywalker, probably a typically choice!!

    My son needs all of those. Obviously we need to go to Legoland πŸ˜‰

    Looks like you had a great time! I’m so glad they’re starting to make Princess Leia stuff again (especially when it’s kick butt Leia and not slave Leia…). Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
