Legoland Florida moves to a shortened schedule in September; it’s closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the month, as well as in October, and the water park shifts to weekend-only operation. The shortened schedule for the regular park continues up until Thanksgiving week, and the water park closes for the season in November. Make sure you check the park hours and operation schedule before you visit in the fall. You don’t want to show up on the wrong day and feel like the Griswold family when they arrived at Wallyworld in that classic movie moment!
Autumn is actually a great time to visit the park, just as it is at any of the Central Florida theme parks. Summer is a hot, busy time with high temperatures and big crowds, but things take on a cooler, slower pace in the fall. The list attached to this article discusses some of the best parts of coming out to Legoland Florida at this lovely time of year.
Now that school’s back in, the park is a great place for a field trip. Jump to this article to read about the educational opportunities.
Cooler Weather: There’s not a lot of shade in Miniland USA, but it’s a place you’ll want to spend a lot of time admiring the Lego creations. Fall is a perfect time because the Florida temperatures slowly but surely start to drop. You can spend more time browsing around without feeling like you’re melting.
Shorter Lines: The park attracts field trips on weekdays when kids are back in school, but other than that, the fall crowds are typically light. You can easily do the whole park, including brand new rides like Quest for Chi. You should even have time to repeat your favorite rides, when you visit in the off-season.
Cypress Gardens: I love the Cypress Gardens area, and one of my favorite things is how it changes with the seasons. I make it a point to stroll through the classic garden area throughout the year, noticing its seasonal phases, which is something you don’t see a lot of in Florida. It’s especially nice to spend some time there on a cool fall day.
A Last Water Park Fling
A Last Water Park Fling: The water park stays open during September and October, and fall in Florida is still warm enough for most people to swim comfortably. Pack your swimsuit and enjoy the significantly lower crowd enjoying the water park late in the year. It’s a great time to slide to your heart’s content before building yourself a raft and taking a rest in the lazy river.
Brick or Treat
Brick or Treat: October weekends at Legoland Florida mean the Brick or Treat Halloween celebration. Kids can dress up in their favorite costumes, build a Lego pumpkin, and of course go trick or treating for lots of goodies. There’s even a Saturday dance party in Miniland USA.
