The LEGOLAND theme park is located in Winter Haven, Florida, approximately one hour from Walt Disney World. The theme park opened in 2011 and has become a great destination for families with small children.
The area now includes a resort, The LEGOLAND Resort Hotel that offers restaurants, entertainment and fun in the pool for the whole family. In addition, the resort is located next door to the gates of the theme park making stays at the park very convenient for visitors. Guests will love the quick return from a day of fun at the parks to this awesome resort.
The LEGOLAND theme park enjoys shorter hours, typically from 10 AM – 5 PM which also is great for families who want to be able to sleep in, enjoy the parks and then get their children to bed at a decent hour! After arriving at the hotel, the kids can play in the lobby. Chairs are all around the area and there is even a bar to grab a drink from while watching the kids play.
In 2012, the LEGOLAND Florida Water Park opened. The water park is loads of fun for children and offers a great way to cool down on those hot summer days. This park is seasonal so be sure to check the times guide so you can be assured that the water fun is available on your day of visit.
Later this year, the LEGOLAND resort area will add the LEGOLAND Beach Retreat. This resort will feature 83 beach-themed bungalows offering 166 separate rooms, each with whimsical LEGO® décor inside and out. The brightly colored bungalows are grouped into 13 sections, each named after a popular LEGO Minifigure including Shark Suit Guy, Ocean King and Sea Captain. Each centers around an outdoor play area with fun and challenging elements, all within view of the bungalows’ shaded patios, where parents can put their feet up, kick back and relax while kids play.
