Big Kids Love LEGOLAND Florida, too

Share

We received admission to LEGOLAND Florida in exchange for an honest review.

Back in November 2014, we visited LEGOLAND Florida as a family. The kids loved all of the activities they were able to participate in then {there are some rides with height minimums} but now that they are 2.5 years older and inches taller, they found even more ways to enjoy LEGOLAND. First up, the carousel. Last time we went, the kids stayed at the bottom level of the carousel. This time? They headed to the top for a whole new experience!

Last time, the kids did not meet the height requirement for all of the rides, but this time, they were able to go on all the roller coasters. They both had a blast riding every single roller coaster they could find.

While Lydia is super brave and always excited to about each ride she encounters, Bryce tends to be a bit more fearful. Here’s Bryce’s before/after the last roller coaster we visited that day. I think the structure of the seat was intimidating at first, but he LOVED it!

Bryce also got to ride the horse by himself, something Lydia got to do last time, when she was taller than him. Now, he’s about an inch or two taller than she is, even though he is two years younger.

We visited LEGOLAND Florida with my blogger friend Melissa from The Eyes of a Boy. Our kids really had so much fun together. This is a cute shot from when they earned their driver’s licenses. These four are growing up too quickly!

They learned how to drive boats, too! We made it to the finishing line without getting splashed too much or bumping too many other boats. I call that a win!

And of course, the kids enjoyed all of the different LEGO displays and statues throughout the park. With so many different areas to explore throughout LEGOLAND Florida, there are lots of opportunities for fun photographs with lots of different structures.

Cars always make a fun place for a photo opportunity, especially when you can hang out with LEGO Friends.

The kids also they had fun putting out a fire with Richard. First they had to pump up and down to drive the fire truck, and then they aimed the fire house to put out the building that was on fire. Hooray, Wells family teamwork!

One of our last stops was the mini LEGO city. It’s a fun place to check out, too, with lots of different cityscapes, historic periods, and moving pieces to watch.

What was Lydia most excited about again? The Apple Fries! {I caught her mid-bite in this photo because she couldn’t wait to eat them}. This girl talked about the Apple Fries for two-and-a-half years! Covered in cinnamon sugar and dipped in whipped cream? YUM! I couldn’t resist eating a few, too.

At the end of the day, we let Lydia and Bryce build their own LEGO bag to purchase. Last time, we were still buying Duplo sets, but now, they build all kinds of structures at home with the smaller LEGO pieces. They got to choose from so many shapes, sizes, and colors.

LEGOLAND Florida is a great way to spend the day with your children, whether they are toddlers, pre-schoolers, or elementary-age. At each stage of development, there are new ways for children to explore their environment, enjoy different rides, and see awesome LEGO sculptures throughout the park.

Have you visited LEGOLAND Florida with your children?
