Legoland – one of the newest theme parks in central Florida. A lot of family fun, perfect for kids (no height restrictions) and with its own water park.
One can stay at a Lego hotel or visit as a day trip from Orlando or the west coast.
A lot of praise to Legoland for having preserved classical Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven very well.

Legoland started modestly 2011, but is the more active nowadays and the theme park has developed a lot over the years.
Now with Lego-style hotels, a new water park and the Ninjago World, they are competing with more famous parks a little further north.

It was tragic to see Cypress Gardens go, but the park is still alive – thanks to Legoland!
Not only the beautiful gardens, also their well-known shows with water-skiing. All respect to the toy giants decision-makers for having saved a piece of Florida histiry.

Legoland has eleven main sections

There are eleven main sections, most identical to similar parks in other countries or the sister park in California. In total 50 attractions and we find it exciting that Florida has its own section within Miniland USA, including St Augustine, Daytona Beach, Kennedy Space Center and Florida Keys.

In Ninjago World, the young visitor can become a ninja, step into the world that is synonymous with Lego products of the same name. The main attraction is a 3-dimensional adventure in the dark.

This section opened in 2017, and the same goes for Legoland Water Park.

The downside with Legoland is that they still stubbornly refuse to keep the park open all days. Contrary to what applies to virtually any other park in Orlando.

So make sure to check opening days when buying your tickets at Official Ticket Center whose staff also can inform if the water park is accessible.

It’s during low season the park closes some Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the water park opening hours depend on the season.

Legoland Florida Resort Hotel is a 5-story building, with rooms designed with different motives from the Danish toy giant.
Legoland Beach Resort is more like a holiday village: 85 beach bungalows with 166 rooms, with themes from popular Lego characters.

Legoland is preparing for the largest expansion

In spring 2019, Legoland will be much bigger. According to Tampa Bay Business Journal, the park makes its biggest expansion since its inception seven years ago.
Much is unclear, but we know that it’s intended to let “The Lego Movie” be the main theme.

Two smaller rides will disappear and in addition to the main attraction, which is supposed to be a boat adventure, there will be two brand new (and still secret) projects.

Legoland, strategically positioned exactly halfway between Tampa and Orlando, has 1,500 employees during the peak season, and new jobs are expected in connection with the expansion.
