We have been to Legoland twice this summer. The first time in June with nephews who are 9 and 11 along with grandparents and aunts and uncles. Our 2 year old was along on that trip and a second one we just did in August to celebrate her 2 year birthday.

The waterpark experience in June was great for everyone involved. One word of caution, if you have seniors or folks that have walking limitations, get a scooter as it is a very long walk from the parking lot to the water park.

On our second trip we were a little disappointed as our toddler was just under the 34-inch height limit for a lot of rides. There were still rides we could do with her, but not all the ones we had hoped for. Do be aware of both the 34-inch and 36-inch limits and avoid problems by asking for a height band at the entrance. That said, we still had a lot of fun.

Criticisms:

1) Food-not very good and of course expensive. I do not mind paying more if I know it is a least decent. This was not the case here.
2) Large sculptures and mini village are getting a little tired from the sun. Hey, it's Florida, it happens, but, it does take away from the high quality image of Legos when you see a lot for the mini village legos and the large sculptures with bleached out colors. It is a park that is just not up to the caliber or Disney or Universal when it comes to maintenance.
3) The walk to the waterpark. It would make a lot of sense to have an entrance near the water park. Alternately, a shuttle to get over there.

Still with those critiques, it is a fun family experience

I have a 5 year old girl, and 8 year old boy, who fell in love with Legoland. My kids have never been to an amusement park, this was our first family vacation, but it left a lasting impression on them. My daughter cried when it was time to leave!
I would say the highlight was the rollercoasters for them. We went August 14 and 15 and the lines that would normally be an hour long, were less than 5 minutes. They road them over and over again!
The worst ride for them was Ford Driving School, which I was surprised about. I read the reviews and thought that it would be THE THING to do! We spent about 10 minutes in line where they took the kids pictures for their driver's license. We then spent about 5 minutes in a class where they taught the kids about driving safely and gave short instructions. So about 15-20 minutes total before actually getting in the cars. Once in the cars, they drove for approx. 2 minutes before they were done. All that fuss, for such a short experience. The kids were not happy. An extra 3 minutes of drive time would have been sufficent and made greater sense for the amount of time we spent waiting and instruction given. I would have even felt more inclined to pay $18 for the driver's license picture if they made the drive time worth wild. Instead, we moved on. Very forgettable experience.
Ninjago and the World of Chima were defintaley favorites, as well as Project X!

Great location. You literally walk out of the park and into the hotel. My kids loved the treasure hunt in the room. When they finally figured out the secret code which is the combo to the safe there were little Lego sets and activity books and juice. Nice touch. Elevator disco is hilarious and the kids love getting on every time. There was a big castle in the middle of the hotel where some of the staff come and keep the kids entertained at night. There is a bar to order food and drinks which is a great way to end the day. It overlooks the castle area where the kids are playing. You can trade minifigures with everyone that works there. Breakfast was ok. Open buffet. A bit busy but not a long wait. Room also comes with free shaded parking. The rooms feel a bit like they need a refresher. The major downfall of this hotel was the price. It is unbelievably overpriced. In May it was $550 USD with 4 park passes. Two weeks ago in August it was $430 without passes. Doesn't make sense. I ended up staying at Legoland beach retreat for $195 and had a much better time. They should consider dropping the hotel price.

I visited the park on 08/12/2017 @ about 3:30pm
When me and my family arrived at Legoland, everyone was leaving because the supervisor/staff was shutting down the amusement rides. I asked the supervisor if it was okay for me to change my ticket for another day since they were shutting down the rides, the supervisor told me no and that it was only the water park that was shutting down. However, another employee standing next to the supervisor was telling the visitors at his window that all of the outside rides were shutting down due to the storm. The supervisor was in ear-shot of that employee, yet she continued to tell me and my family that the water park is the only area shutting down. Since the supervisor stated i could not use my ticket for another day, me and my family just went into the park. Guess what, majority of the rides were shut down and my family was only able to get on two rides. I will not waste my money again on Legoland.

We added the 14 day Legoland pass to our Disney tickets as it was only a £10 each additional cost. From our past experience of this venue I would not have bothered if were not for the price. On arrival we were surprised at how empty the car park was and there were no queues for rides. Our 5 year old loved it and he went on move rides in a morning than he has in 3 visits to Windsor. The park has improved since we last visited, it looks cleaner (especially the toilets) and there are a couple of new rides. The staff (not all, the older ones were great and true advocates of 'silver service') still need an injection of enthusiasm, urgency and good customer service. It took so long just to get a coffee or an ice cream and the place was empty.

If you can get a cheap deal on this it's well worth a visit, but not worth the 93 dollar day ticket entry.
