Seeing the world through the eyes of a child is almost like stepping into a time machine and traveling back into your own childhood. Lego is one of those toys that many adults seem to enjoy as much as their kids. There’s something about those little blocks and the limitless creativity that they provide that just brings us all a little joy. My family is no exception to this so it’s no surprise that Legoland is a place that we have all enjoyed. My second son and I have had the pleasure of visiting Legoland California, and as an entire family we have visited Legoland Florida on a couple of occasions. The first time we took the family was nearly four years ago.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting any of the Legoland attractions, you may not know about Miniland. This is the part of the park where you find entire cities, attractions and even movie sets (think Star Wars!) built entirely of Lego on a miniature scale. Wandering through these tiny impressive builds is awe inspiring. My youngest son was intrigued and needed to know who built all of these amazing creations. His response when he learned that there are people whose jobs involve creating and building Lego designs?

“I found my life!”

That’s not a bad career goal, in my opinion. Perhaps he can ensure we have regular passes to any Legoland in the world! Germany, here we come!

While Griffin pondered his future in lego building, we explored the rest of the park. We went on some awesome rides, and arrived at the park highlight, the Driving School. Kellen has raved about Driving School since he tried it in California and Griffin was anxious for his turn. I was pretty impressed with his driving skills! Take a look at how he narrowly avoided a crash in the video below.

He’s a natural and now his career path may have to expand to include race car driver. Kellen and Avery aced the Driving School for older kids and argued their way through boating school (no, even Legoland isn’t all smiles and giggles). Short tempers and tired kids signals time for a change, so we finished our day off at the waterpark.

  1. We’re hoping to include a visit here on our January Orlando trip. Fingers crossed!
    And, I don’t blame him for wanting to build Lego for a living. How cool would that be??!

  2. I’ve always wanted to check out LegoLand here in CA. Now I’m going to wait til my kids are older so we can all enjoy it together.

  3. Legoland in Florida is so much fun, the boys all love it. He is definitely a great little driver. All the other kids were being pulled off the curb and he was just cruising.

  4. My little boy is looking over my shoulder and can only say, “Oh, WOW”, over and over and over. It looks like so much fun!

  5. I would love to be able to take my kids there someday. We’ve gone to the LEGO-fests here in Raleigh and the kids have such an amazing day!

  6. I really wanted to take my son to LEGOLAND when we were in Orlando earlier this year but we just couldn’t fit it in. Hopefully someday soon!

  7. Even though my kids are older, I would love to go to Legoland. All of my kids loved their lego and my youngest has kept all of his lego. I bet he would love to go too!

  8. I have a grandson who loved Lego all the time he was growing up and he could make the most complicated designs from the instructions, so I have an idea of how your son feels. It is wonderful to do something you love.
    I watched the video and he is a very careful driver.

  9. It is incredible that people can build all that from Lego! I remember being very proud of building a rectangular house! Lol!
