Our summer vacation in California included our first family visit to LEGOLAND®. My four year old daughter had an amazing time and I am already looking forward to planning our next visit.
With more than 60 rides, shows and attractions, and interactive exhibits we knew our day would be full of fun. My husband was excited to navigate our day through the park with the map.
We spent the next hour exploring Fun Town until we were ready for lunch. LEGOLAND has many different dining options and I was happy to learn all the resort restaurants are trans-fat free. Each restaurant has healthy meal options for kids and most also include gluten-free and vegetarian options too. We had lunch at the Pizza & Pasta Buffet.
The buffet had hot pan pizza and breadsticks, pasta, and a salad bar but I did not see pasta with out sauce. We asked if we could have a plate of plain pasta for my daughter and less than five minutes later, a big plate full arrived at our table. My daughter was happy and I was impressed with the great service.
My daughter loves to spin and couldn’t wait to ride the Bionicle Blaster. When the ride was over she hopped off and asked to get in line to go again.
If you’re looking for a place to run and play with out lines, The Duplo Playtown is great!
An exact replica of the world’s largest LEGO® model, the Star Wars X-wing starfighter, is currently on display for the remainder of the year at LEGOLAND. The model has five million LEGO bricks and took over 17,000 hours to construct. I had fun posing with some of the models leading up to the display.
Our last ride of the day was a relaxing boat ride through Fairy Tale Brook where we saw some of my daughter’s favorite fairy tale characters constructed with LEGO bricks.
Our first family visit to LEGOLAND was a great day. We easily could have spent several days at the resort. We still have a long list of rides and attractions we would like to see during our next visit.
We made a stop in The Big Shop before we left. The largest shop at LEGOLAND is filled with all the LEGO toys you could ever want including some hard to find items. The shop also has fun souvenirs and clothing items.
LEGOLAND offers so many accommodations for parents to make your visit enjoyable including locker, wheelchair, and stroller rentals.
The resort is designed for a relaxing day full of family fun. Although we weren’t traveling with an infant, the Baby Care Center makes it seem easy. Guests have access to microwaves, bottle warmers, and high chairs. All restrooms include diaper changing tables.
The ride height restrictions permitted my four year old daughter to enjoy almost every attraction. The tallest restriction is 42 inches so my daughter could ride everything. Almost half the rides do not have a height restriction making visiting with smaller guests fun too.
A couple of hours in our day were spent at the SEA LIFE Aquarium in LEGOLAND. My daughter could have easily spent the entire day touching sea stars and crabs in the Discovery Zone Touch Pool. You will see more photos and information about our visit to the aquarium soon.
Our visit to the resort also included a tour of the new amazing LEGOLAND hotel. We will definitely be planning another visit to the resort to enjoy a stay at the hotel and return to the park.
Tickets to LEGOLAND can be purchased online and onsite. When planning your visit, you can save on the price of admission by purchasing your ticket online using the designated date of your visit. Tickets can also be purchased with out a specified visit date. The Merlin Annual Pass is a great deal and monthly payment options are available at the resort.
