Is LEGOLAND Florida Toddler Friendly? – Review

My family and I received complimentary admission to LEGOLAND Florida in exchange for our honest review. All fun was had by us, and all opinions expressed are my own ;). 

When we planned Zayn’s birthday trip honestly I had RJ in mind. I really wanted to take him to LEGOLAND because he LOVES all things LEGO. He begs me to take him to the LEGO store EVERY mall trip, he watches LEGO shorts on Kids YouTube and he has a good amount of LEGO books. I knew we had to make the trip there during our vacation. 

LEGOLAND actually isn’t in Orlando, unbeknownst to me. It was about a 45 minute drive from our hotel in Winter Haven, Florida. We packed the kids into the rental, and made the trip without telling RJ where we were headed. I wish I had the footage of when we arrived to the park. He literally started singing “Everything is Awesome” and sang it from the parking lot through the gates.

I Rode My First Rollercoaster at 26!

Thank you to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom for providing us with complimentary admission in exchange for this blog post. All opinions expressed belong to me =)

A couple weeks ago I FINALLY had a day off from work and was able to take a day trip with my boyfriend and friends to Dorney Park. We went on a perfect day, being a Tuesday (which Dorney recommends on their Trip Tips page) the wait time in line was MAYBE 10 minutes the longest. 

I was excited, but secretly terrified all at the same time LOL. I had never done the rollercoaster thing. The last time I went to an amusement park I was in …… EIGHT grade? Soooooo over 10 years ago. And even then I was too chicken to ride any rollercoasters. I was excited, it was my boyfriend and my 6 year anniversary and I was ready to face my (for nothing) fear!!

 Out here being a winner.... Though I didn't actually win anything LOL

If you can’t tell by the name, Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom are two separate parks, in one location. They have the majority of their water rides separated from the dry rides still allowing you to get the best of both worlds. Saisha and I were ALL READY for the water rides, but the guys weren’t as thrilled. After two rides (and the two of us spending some time in the kiddie area LOL) they were ready to go to the other side of the park. 

 Idk if my boyfriend is dancing... playing the drums.... I have no idea. LOL

 In line for the Wild Mouse rollercoaster... which is one of their smallest coasters, yet it's the one that gave me the biggest heart attack.

When we first got to the park The Talon was being worked on and we didn’t think we would get to ride that particular roller coaster. It ended up being the last ride we went on and my favorite from the entire day. I’m glad I got over my fear, tried something new, and enjoyed the experience with some of the people I love the most! I can’t wait to make another trip to Dorney! 

I ended up taking most of pictures on and of the actual rides on SnapChat (follow me) and forgetting to save them, my boyfriend also was convinced his phone case was waterproof, took pictures, and the phone didn’t survive to share LOL. So sorry for the stock image of the coaster but the one below has part of it in the background!

What’s your favorite amusement park? Do you have a roller coaster fear? What other parks should I visit?
