A few weeks ago we had a weekend away at Legoland for Hubby’s 30th Birthday. We spent about a day and a half in the park and could have happily spent a lot longer, we didn’t quite manage to squeeze in all the rides and attractions we would have like to so we’ll definitely be going back. From what we did see and do I’ve put together our Top 5 (in no particular order) things to do at Legoland with a Baby and Toddler.

Pirates of Skeleton Bay Stunt Show- This was a huge hit with all four of us, so much so that we watched it twice!  The cast were all brilliant and the music very very catchy, it reminded me and Hubby of a Pantomime like atmosphere but with the added thrill of stunts and explosions.

DUPLO Valley- If you have a child under 1m tall then this is an area you must visit. I would highly recommend the Fairy Tale Brook, both our girls were able to ride this gentle boat ride through all our favourite fairy tales built from Lego. Willow and Hubby also thoroughly enjoyed the Duplo Valley Airport, unfortunately Allana was too small for this but we loved watching her big sister fly her very own Aircraft. Theres plenty of other rides in this area too, all geared for their smaller visitors and a huge play area too.

MINILAND- I think this was probably my favourite area, nearly 40 million lego bricks make up scenes of Europe and the USA. Willow loved watching the moving parts of the scenes like the cars, trains and boats whilst Allana seemed to really enjoy all the bright colours. I was completely amazed by the detail in each scene from the London Bridge rising to allow boats through, the turning windmills in Holland and Abba performing in Sweden. We could have easily and happily spent hours wondering around Miniland and I can’t wait to visit again to see what we missed the first time.

Legoland Character Spot- I have a feeling this may have been Willow’s favourite moment of the two days. She met Mr Gold and Emmet and didn’t want to leave, both characters were very interactive and Willow got lots of high fives and hugs. The staff attending the character meets couldn’t have been more helpful and we actually managed to get a few photos of the whole family with the Lego Characters!

Heartlake City- This is such a pretty area of Legoland, and the place where the Pirate Show is hosted. In Heartlake City all the buildings are built to look like buildings from Lego Friends and the attention to detail is amazing. There are three places to eat here, including an amazing Ice Cream Parlour (we may have had ice cream at 10.30am….) and also the Heartlake Shopping Mall which sold a fantastic collection of Lego and souvenirs for the whole family. Right at the end of day two we came across ‘Olivia’s House’ I wish we’d found it sooner as this offered a quiet, sheltered area for the children to play and explore away from the heat and crowds.

This literally only scratches the surface of what we enjoyed at Legoland and like I said earlier we didn’t manage to do everything either so I imagine we’ll be adding to this list after our next visit. Keep an eye out as I’ll be filling you all in on our Top 5 Favourite things about the Legoland Hotel and Top 5 Items to take to Legoland over the coming weeks.

Have you been to Legoland before? Is there anything you would recommend we see on our next visit?

    I’m saving this post. My friend visited Legoland from Ireland in July and said it was beyond amazing! I’ll wait until my toddler is a little older but it’s definitely on the cards for the brood! Your photos are gorgeous and it looks like it really was a holiday to remember.

    We keep thinking about going to LEGOLAND, although it is a long way from home, and reviews like this always make me question why we haven’t got round to it yet! It looks like so much fun, maybe we will incorporate it into our summer holiday plans next year. #bigpinklink

    I love Legoland. We took our son about 3/4 years ago and we all had a great time. The Legoland hotel was amazing and we watched the pirate show twice too. That area wasn’t heartlake city when we were there as I think they’d only just started with the Lego friends series then but I can definitely picture it. Our youngest is 2 at the minute and we want to wait another year before going again so she can enjoy a bit more, plus our oldest should be able to get on all the rides by then. It really is a great place x

    The Duplo area looks really sweet, a good starter ride for a little toddler! I didn’t realise there was stuff for our children’s age to do there, that’s interesting…especially as i think my husband would also like to go there (he was left laughing out loud watching the Lego Movie by himself the other day). A great summary and useful, interesting post! #bigpinklink
