Legoland Florida Resort #LEGOLANDFL


 **I received a free complimentary tickets to facilitate this review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
When I found out we were heading to Legoland I kept myself off their website. I wanted to give an honest review, as always, so I had no idea what we were in for! Legoland is housed on 150-acres of interactive theme park with more than 50 rides, shows and attractions, restaurants, shopping, a breathtaking botanical garden and the LEGOLAND Water Park all geared to families with children ages 2 to 12.
This is a great place for kids, I recommend getting to the park early. They do not allow early entry so you will have to wait in line at the front gate. After entering we tried the Island in the Sky ride. It is a 150- foot rotating platform that gives guests a 360° view of LEGOLAND Florida.
Next we headed to this double Decker Ferris wheel. Children can ride some of their beloved Lego pieces, how neat is that?
In between rides, shops and attractions were Lego made statues. The Park is filled with them and we couldn't help but stop and take photos with some of them. Great for Family vacation photos!
Throughout the Park they also had Lego Characters walking around.
Mac was in LEGO heaven!!
Next we stopped into the Barn. An air-conditioned play area for children to slide, climb and crawl around a whole host of friendly farm animals. This was so nice to sit and enjoy some air conditioning when outside was 82 degrees.
Within this Barn it housed a toddle spot and a Baby Care Center, presented by Winter Haven Hospital, provides a nursing and changing area and bottle warming station.
Once we finished our Barn fun we headed over to the Tractor ride. Mac felt right at home, on the farm, with chickens and gardens! These rides throughout the park are so nice because adults and children can ride no matter their size!
LEGO Kingdom takes you back to medieval times with the LEGOLAND Castle where spells are cast and many knights, damsels and dragons are found.

We may have gotten into a bit of trouble here and there whilst in the castle ourselves! Saw a few dragons, rescued a princess and rode a roller coaster.
  Mac was excited to Joust since we had just previously been to Medieval Times the night before. Children ride Lego horses through medieval scenes where they experience a simulated joust.
  They only let children ride one at a time so this ride is a little longer of a wait. Keep that in mind on Hot days, although it does have a roof to wait under.
We stopped for lunch, which consisted of Peta sandwiches, apple sauce and a water. Several of the areas had fans and spray water misters to keep you cooled.
Since we had eaten we decided to watch a show. The Pirates’ Cove has a water ski and stunt show, The Battle for Brickbeard’s Bounty, as well as Cap’n Brickbeard’s Burgers. If you are interested, we shot a video of the show HERE.
Pirates’ Cove has been taken over by swashbuckling pirates along the shores of Lake Eloise at LEGOLAND Florida’s very own live action, water-stunt show. Boy do I recommend this show if you are at the Park. It is funny, entertaining and full of action packed stunts everyone will enjoy.
 I also want to mention that they have a SPLASH zone!!
Next we took a stroll into the botanical gardens. Turtles, gators and all sorts of wildlife were around us.
They also have a few sitting areas and waterfalls to enjoy.
Everything pails in comparison to the Cypress Tree. It is very old and VERY large. Each branch roots down and creates another tree that interlocks.
It is so large I could not fit the tree in it's entirty within my photo lens! 
It is definitely worth the hike to go and see it!
What we liked: All the rides accommodated all ages in our family! Most theme parks Mac is not tall enough for rides so in our book this was a BIG advantage. This is a large park but well constructed with lots to see, do, experience without feeling overwhelmed. You don't have to walk very far between things. 
**The Mist Machines were AMAZING on this hot and humid day**
What could be Improved: We had a hard time locating bathrooms. The signs were on the small size and easily missed in all the attraction colors.
Overall Rating: 4.8 out of 5 Stars!!
