Staying in one of our vacation rentals in Orlando? Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your time at Legoland.
Give yourself plenty of time. It takes roughly 45 minutes to drive from Tampa or Orlando to Legoland so allow a decent amount of traveling time, depending on where you’re staying.
Arrive early. The queues at Legoland can be long, especially in the middle of the day. Get there early, beat the crowds and make the most of what the attraction has to offer.
Try the Apple Fries. Make a pit stop at Granny’s Apples to try Legoland’s popular signature dish.
Consider two days. If you really love Lego, you might find it hard to cover everything in a single day. The attraction offers good deals on two-day passes.
Dress comfortably. You can expect to do quite a bit of walking between attractions at Legoland so bring comfortable shoes. If you’re planning on giving the water park a try, it might be worth bringing a change of clothes too.
