What to Know Before You Visit LEGOLAND Florida Resort

Why go: LEGOLAND Florida is a multi-day vacation destination built for kids ages 2-12. It’s home to a 150-acre theme park with over 50 rides, shows, and attractions inspired by LEGO brands and characters.

There is also a LEGOLAND water park with tube slides, body slides, a wave pool, and a lazy river that you’ll build a raft out of LEGOs to float on. Rounding out the resort is a botanical garden, two hotels (Pirate Island Hotel and LEGOLAND Hotel) with themed rooms, and the LEGOLAND Beach Retreat, a lakefront resort with 83 bungalows.

How long to visit: You may want to plan more than one day to experience the entire resort if the water park is open and you’re traveling with a LEGO enthusiast. Alternatively, even a half-day to enjoy fun rides, coasters, shows, and attractions is completely doable if you’re short on time.

Health and safety measures: Various regulations making it safe to visit are in effect for hotel and park guests. Your party will not be admitted if anyone in it has a fever of 100.4˚ F. Non-invasive temperature checks are required.

Face coverings are required for ages 2 and up and can be purchased inside of the park. Social distancing measures will be implemented, and the park will run at reduced occupancy. You will not be admitted if you’re traveled on a cruise ship or out of the country in the prior 14 days. Read the details for more information.

Go paperless: Not only is this the environmentally-sensitive thing to do but minimizing transactions reduces health risks. Download the app before you go to eliminate the need for a paper map. Be prepared to use credit cards or Apple Pay in place of cash. Also, the resort wants you to arrive having already purchased admission.

Understand ticket terms: Read all terms and conditions before purchasing LEGOLAND Florida tickets (which will include the new health and safety measures). Be sure that they do not expire before your visit and check refund or transfer policies. And, buy from an authorized ticket seller.

Check the calendar: You must check opening dates and hours. The reason is that the Florida water park has seasonal hours, and the theme park itself is closed entirely on Wednesdays in some months. When the park is open, hours vary by day.

Upgrade your day: For those looking for a VIP experience, the park now offers various packages that include a personal host, priority ride access, exclusive experiences, and more.

Parking prices: The parking fee is currently $23 and $33 for preferred parking. So that guests can keep a respectful distance from others, parking spaces are more spread out than they used to be.


LEGOLAND Florida Gate Prices

This is what you would pay at the front gate. Children aged 2 and under receive free admission.

  • Single-day admission (ages 3+): $106.99 plus tax.
  • Single-day plus water park admission (ages 3+): $133.74 plus tax
  • Two-day admission (ages 3+): $128.38 plus tax
  • Two-days plus water park admission (ages 3+): $155.14 plus tax

Despite these gate prices, you can purchase online at a lower price through authorized sellers and sometimes even through LEGOLAND directly. Let’s now walk through the various ways to find tickets discounts.


1. Direct Promotions Through LEGOLAND

Sometimes, you can find promotions directly through LEGOLAND that are better than any other authorized ticket seller. You can always check these here for comparison.

Note that you will pay 7% sales tax and a $2.99 processing fee on LEGOLAND Florida tickets purchased directly through them online.

So, unless they are running special offers, the prices in #2 below are typically cheaper.


2. 1-Day, 2-Day, and Combo Ticket Discounts

I’ve worked with an authorized LEGOLAND tickets seller called aRes Travel for years. They offer multiple ways to buy LEGOLAND Florida discount tickets and admission tickets to other nearby popular attractions in Tampa and Orlando like Walt Disney World® and Universal Orlando Resort™.

Their tickets are significantly cheaper than front gate pricing. You’ll buy them online and receive them immediately in your inbox. Print or access them via your mobile device. This means that you can head straight to the front gate without the need to redeem a ticket voucher at the theme park entrance. Their customer service has been great, and you can even call directly to purchase.

aRes Travel charges a $2 convenience fee per ticket, but you will still likely come out ahead. The prices below do not include parking unless indicated but they DO include tax.


3. LEGOLAND Florida Vacation Packages

The main benefit of staying on the resort at LEGOLAND Hotel, LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel, and LEGOLAND Beach Retreat is that you’ll have even more LEGO-themed activities on your doorstep.

But, you can save even more money by bundling cheap LEGOLAND Florida tickets with an offsite Winter Haven hotel. Choose from 11 different hotel options and then add the ticket type that you would like.

Tip: When you shop for vacation packages, look for the PRICE DROP alerts that save even more!


4. Go Orlando Pass

  2. Buy in advance and access your pass on the Go City App or print it at home.

The All-Inclusive passes are available in 2, 3, and 5 day options, each at different prices. Make sure the attractions you’d like to visit are listed on the option you buy.
