For a park aimed primarily at young children there are an impressive amount and variety of roller coasters.
As you might expect thrills here are related to the age demographic & these attractions also have some height restrictions.
Paying homage to the world famous ski show that used to call this place its home you’ll find a great array of water rides.
Young ones don’t want to sit and watch so most attractions are kinetic and outdoors making the most of the scenery.
The vast majority of attractions here cater for young or very young children. Keep an eye on age & height restrictions.
With a park this beautiful you don’t want to be indoors for too long but there are a couple of shows to escape the heat.
Getting To The Park
Legoland Florida is roughly 45 minutes to an hour south of Kissimmee and Disney World.
A low-cost bus service like the Busch Gardens Express has not returned post-Covid. Currently, your only option to get to Legoland Florida is to drive.
With 3 on-site hotels you could organise a mini-break from Disney and Orlando if you want to maximise your time and really get to know Legoland Florida.
Time Saving Queue Tips
Arrive early and head to the back of the park. It’s tempting to stop at attractions on the way but start at the back and work your way forward.
You will beat the crowds and you’ll have much less of a walk to exit the park come closing time when everyone is tired.
Speaking of, if there is a queue for your favourite attraction, but especially the roller coasters, wait until the half-hour before the park closes and try again. Little legs get tired by mid-afternoon so come park closing the ride queue times are slashed.
Visit During The Week
Like Busch Gardens in Tampa this park gets crazy busy at the weekends with annual pass holders.
If you want to maximise your time here visit during the week but please check the Legoland Florida calenadar before you schedule a visit.
In quiet periods Legoland Florida doesn’t open some days during the week at all. The water park is also only open in the warmer months.
