7 LEGOLAND Florida Tips for Families
- Best age to go to LEGOLAND Florida is ideally 6-12. Children between these ages who are already fans of LEGO movies and toys are going to have a blast. Younger children will probably have fun too, but if you really want your kids to fully enjoy the park experience, 6 is a great age to bring them.
- Bring your own food. The food at the parks is not great so one of our favorite LEGOLAND Florida tips is to bring food and drink with you to the park. It will save you time and money! We love packing sandwiches, snacks and bottles of water in these soft coolers that fit in our backpacks.
- Bring LEGO mini figures. If you have some around the house that are collecting dust, a cute thing that employees do is trade mini figures that they wear on their name tags!
- Check the show schedule. There aren’t that many show times and the shows are really well done. Make sure that you plan your day according to the shows so you don’t miss out.
- Use the package pick up system when you buy your souvenirs. You can have them send your purchases to the front of the park (as long as you don’t wait until the last minute to buy your goodies).
- Keep an eye on the park hours for your visit. While open most days, the days & hours depend on the time of year.
- Get the Best Ticket Price for LEGOLAND Florida. You will find that a day at LEGOLAND park Florida is very affordable. LEGOLAND typically throws out deals through out the year, so be sure to do some searching before you pay full price for a ticket. Tickets are most expensive at the gate, so one of our best LEGOLAND tips is to buy your tickets for LEGOLAND online. We encourage you to check the prices with Undercover Tourist as they tend to be the lowest around!
