We pinch our pennies a lot. And for a big trip… or even a small trip or event for that matter… I budget months in advance. That’s being frugal. It’s not about being cheap, it’s about saving and spending your money wisely.
So visiting a theme park… a super easy past time here in Florida… is a big deal for us and our budget. And a theme park needs to really impress us, for us to go back again.
Well, Legoland Florida does that. It’s already one of the most affordable theme parks in Florida. And they just added a brand new section to the park that is pure heaven for all Lego Movie fans. (That includes us. 😉 )
We literally jumped at the chance for four complimentary tickets to Legoland Florida in exchange for my review.

All new Lego Movie World
Our family has been huge fans of the Lego-inspired movies, from the original Lego Movie to the Batman and Ninjago movies to the latest sequel, Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
So we were over-the-moon thrilled when Legoland Florida announced an entirely new part of the park dedicated to the Lego movies.
And it did not disappoint. I mean, you can actually gather in the dog! 👇
Inside the dog is the Masters Of Flight ride. Be sure you can handle virtual reality and don’t easily get motion sickness, because it’s pretty intense.
Even if you or your little ones do get motion sickness, no fear. My kids do sometimes (and my husband), so I gave them the new Non-Drowsy Naturals Dramamine and they had no problems at all.
And if motion sickness is the least of your problems, and kids bouncing off the walls while waiting in line is much worse… Legoland has you covered as only Legoland can. All along the queue, the walls are covered in legos that the kids… and adults… can create with while waiting.
When you need to cool off, the Battle of Bricksburg ride will definitely get you soaked.
You’re in a boat shooting water canons and getting lots of water back in return, so prepare to walk around wet or bring a change of clothes after this one.
Unikitty’s Disco Drop was a super cute ride and is perfect for the little ones, but not just the little ones. I rode this with my daughter and definitely felt my stomach drop… in a good way. 🙂
Fun for the whole family
Going to theme parks is getting more and more fun as my kids get older. They’re becoming more adventurous with roller coasters, so the whole family can enjoy more rides.
And Legoland has a great mix of rides and attractions for kids and adults of all ages. They have a great mix of wet and dry rides and small and big rides.
Something for everyone
Lego is a really wide-reaching brand, so whether you like Star Wars or Harry Potter, or other genres, chances are good that Legoland has something for you.
My daughter loved sitting under the sorting hat with Harry Potter and Hermione to pretend to find out which Hogwarts house she would be in. 🙂
A really fun thing about Legoland is that these little character gems are everywhere in the park, at attractions, and in shops. So be sure to have your camera ready!
There’s really no better place to see incredible Lego creations than at Legoland. Miniland USA is full of huge, intricate creations like this.
The best place to cool down
By far the best place to cool down, get a bite to eat and recharge is the Imagination Zone. They have a great restaurant inside, Panini Grill.
And the kids can get their hands on Legos and spend hours creating different vehicles and racing them in the Building Zone.
The best deals on toys
You can’t go to Legoland without coming home with some Legos, right?! But you also don’t want to go broke.
So a good option is to build a set of 3 minifigures in the Minifigure Market. Your kids get a souvenir they’ll play with and you’re only out $10. And kids can trade minifigures with park employees!
And do not miss this shop! Next to the Heartlake Ice Cream Parlor, you’ll see this small, pink building… the Extreme Brick Bargains Shop. They have clearance-priced Lego merchandise.
And if you’re coming back to Legoland for the all-new Lego Movie World, like we did, you can get all things Lego Movie related in the Awesome Shop. I was pleased to see their big selection of plushes (a big hit in my house) was nicely priced. A good size Lego Movie plush was around $20.
