Florida certainly has no shortage of great attractions. When seeking a family-friendly getaway to the Sunshine State, you have an assortment from which to choose.

But that just makes it even more impressive that LEGOLAND® manages to stand out from the pack.

LEGOLAND® Florida is the largest of all of the LEGOLAND® parks worldwide. This is a destination experience that will delight LEGO® fans of all ages.

First-time visitors will likely be surprised at the wide range of activities and offerings the park has to offer. Not surprisingly, there are LEGO® activities galore. This is truly an interactive destination that encourages and promotes creativity, fun and imaginative play. With more than 50 rides, shows and attractions, there are great things for everyone to do. This is guaranteed to be thrilling for guests of all ages.

For added enjoyment—and a refreshing break from the Florida heat—there is also the LEGOLAND® Water Park. Cool off and have fun on the slides, wave rides or lazy river. Don’t forget to check out the interactive water structures. There is even a special section just for toddlers.  

If you need a break from the action, sit back and watch some of the terrific entertainment. The pirate-themed water ski spectacular show is a popular highlight, and the character meet-and-greets also delight visitors. Or take in a one-of-a-kind movie experience at the Wells Fargo Fun Town 4D Theater.

There are also a variety of extras that let you get valuable special perks during your visit. Opt for Bonus Brick Time, which entitles you to gain early entrance to the park. Or get the Premium Play Band, which provides you with unlimited front-of-the-line privileges—and also one Mystery Minifigure as a special extra surprise. The park and hotel each also offer exclusive VIP experiences, such as the Red Brick Carpet experience where you get your own personal host to accompany you around the park all day sharing interesting facts and insider information about the park.

You may not be able to live in LEGOLAND®, but you can experience the next best thing. Stay as close to the action as you can get when you spend your stay at LEGOLAND® Hotel. Almost like an attraction in itself, the hotel offers surprises at every turn, as you can discover the 2,000 LEGO models dispersed around the property. And the resort is now accepting reservations for stays at their new beach-themed retreat, scheduled to open in mid-2017.

Fuel up with your favorite eats, as there are many different dining options available to you. The kid-friendly selections include child-approved favorites such as pizza and burgers, but you can also opt for Asian cuisine or fried chicken. Plenty of ice cream desserts and sweet treats are also on the menu.

Guests can also bring their own Minifigures (or buy some at the resort), which they can then trade with park employees known as Model Citizens. You can even get some shopping done without ever leaving the park, as there are a variety of shops throughout the resort. Great for picking up some souvenirs!
