LEGOLAND Florida is a very large theme park, and due to its size and its usually limited operating hours can sometimes make it a bit hard for families with a limited budget to get around the whole park in one single day. Just a few hours ago, LEGOLAND Florida posted an interesting post on their official blog regarding this subject, and they included some tips that you may find really helpful to schedule your day at the park:
Although LEGOLAND® Florida is still relatively young as a theme park, there are already some regular questions we get from first time visitors. One of these is “How much time do we need to see everything?” This is a great question, especially for people who are detailed planners. The answer will vary based on any number of factors: park operating hours, weather, age/number of kids, and Park attendance.
We've found that many families can experience the Park in one day, especially if they get there right when it opens and stay through closing. If you find that one day isn't enough adding a second day to your trip is just a $15 upgrade. When the Water Park opens in May we highly recommend a second day, which will also take the pressure off of seeing all of LEGOLAND in one day and will allow you time to re-visit your favorite attractions.
