Tips for Visiting LEGOLAND Florida for Toddlers
Bringing a toddler to a theme park doesn’t have to be intimidating, if you plan ahead. LEGOLAND Florida has a ton of fun for the entire family, babies and toddlers included. If you’re planning a trip, here are my tips for visiting LEGOLAND Florida for toddlers.
Thank you to LEGOLAND Florida for providing free tickets for my family to enjoy. All opinions are my own.
Bring a Stroller to LEGOLAND Florida
A good stroller is essential when planning a trip to any theme park. LEGOLAND Florida offers rentals, but with babies and toddlers, I highly recommend bringing your own. Theme park strollers (for little ones) must have three things: a reclining seat, tons of storage space, and cupholders for parents. If you’re visiting during summer months, I also recommend purchasing a plastic rain cover too. Be sure to stock up your diaper bag with extra diapers, wipes, clothes, and baby food or formula. If you plan on going to the water park or playing in the splash park in DUPLO land, don’t forget swim diapers and proper attire for your little one.
Use the Baby Care Center
LEGOLAND Florida offers a fantastic Baby Care Center to help take care of your little one. This space is located inside the DUPLO Farm play spot (so dad can wait with the older kids while they play). Inside the Baby Care Center, there are four changing tables, a microwave, two highchairs, a restroom, and four private nursing areas. The nursing rooms also have a little chair in each one if you have another small child in tow. This facility is a must use when planning a trip to LEGOLAND Florida for toddlers or babies.
Play Areas at LEGOLAND Florida for Toddlers
Most rides are for preschool age children and up. There are a few rides that handheld infants can ride, but they have to be able to sit up on their own with good head control. If they are being carried, they don’t need shoes. However, if your little one wants to ‘walk’ onto a ride, they must have proper footwear on. My 11 month old LOVED the play areas sporadically around the park. While we passed a few that were for older children, there were several that were perfect for her age. I would take her to play while her sister was on a ride.
Stay Cool at LEGOLAND Florida with a Baby
Florida summers can be brutal! Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, hats, etc to prevent sunburn. Take advantage of the Air Conditioned indoor play areas, especially during the hotter parts of the day. My little one also loved the water park. She enjoyed floating with me down the lazy river, splashing in the toddler section and crawling in the shallow end of the wave pool.
