Hello OSSS readers! It’s Kimberly again from Get Away Today. It’s been nearly a year since I shared why LEGOLAND is the best theme park for toddlers, so I figured it was time for an update if you’re thinking of a Legoland Family Vacation. Today I want to share with you what’s happening with LEGOLAND California these days, and how you can enjoy big savings when you book with Get Away Today. Also, we will go over ride height requirements, LEGOLAND hotels, shows, and more!
LEGOLAND Family Vacation
Designed for kids ages 2 – 12, I personally think of LEGOLAND as designed for LEGO lovers of all ages. Yes, little kids can easily enjoy themselves at this theme park, but so can grown ups! If you’re not sure about taking a LEGOLAND family vacation, today I plan to help you make up your mind.
LEGOLAND Family Vacation – Ride Heights
In my last LEGOLAND post I focused on LEGOLAND rides and experiences for toddlers. For families traveling with older kids, or a good mix of ages, you might be wondering what’s at LEGOLAND for bigger kids. While not comprehensive, this list gives you a good look at rides and experiences for older kids at LEGOLAND.
