If you are a family with young children like ours, Legoland Florida is probably on your bucket list for an upcoming trip. However, you also may be asking a question that often comes up with the recommended ages of 2-12 for the park. How much is there really for my two year old to do? I’m happy to share with you 20 things we found for two year olds at Legoland Florida. Be sure to grab my Free Legoland Rides Height Cheat Sheet by signing up for my newsletter here.
1. The Grand Carousel
The carousel is the first ride you encounter as you come into the park so it’s a great way to start your day. This carousel is a double-decker so if your lucky enough to be the first seven or eight people in line head to the top when the attendant lets you in. The carousel has adorable Lego-inspired horses that your little one can ride around and around.
2. Duplo Farm
Right next to the Grand Carousel you will find a toddler dreamland-Duplo Valley. The first stop in Duplo Valley is the Duplo Farm. The Duplo Farm is an adorable indoor playground where you and your child can beat the heat by playing in air conditioning. With farm-inspired playground equipment this is a fun spot for all two-year-olds.
Another great part of the Duplo Farm is the Baby Care Center. Found in the back of the play area there is a great area for mamas of babies birth through 2. This area includes 4 rooms for nursing mamas which includes a rocking chair and a little rocking chair for the sibling. There are also four changing tables in the center of the room. In the far corner of the room there are high chairs, a microwave, and a sink for all your feeding needs. Our favorite part of the baby care center. The family size bathroom. Since this area is for mamas it is a nice place to use the restroom with your little ones.
3. Duplo Tractor
As you exit the Duplo Farm you will see the Duplo Tractor ride. This ride allows children to get in the driver seat and drive their tractor through a Duplo Farm scene. In addition to the ride, make sure to let your little one stop and hit all the farm animal buttons.
4. Duplo Train
One of our son’s favorites at Legoland is the Duplo Train. The coveted seat for our kids is definitely the front seat but all seats on the train are a great view. Similar to the Duplo Tractor, the Duplo Train has a circular track that takes you on two loops. There are cute little Duplo figurines for your little one to look at as they ride the train. Be sure as you exit the train to stop and let your little one ring the bell.
5. Duplo Splash Pad
One thing is for sure, almost year round you need to beat the heat. The Duplo Splash Pad is a great place to take a little break and cool off.
6. The Duplo Tot Spot
Right across from the splash pad you will find the next play place for your toddler. This is a cute little shaded area where your child can play pretend in the house or build with giant sized rubber legos. They can also slide down a perfect toddler sized slide.
7. The Forestman’s Hideout
As you leave Duplo Valley you will head into Lego Kingdoms. The Forestman’s Hideout can be found across from The Royal Joust ride. This is a great place to get energy out. It is an elevated wooden platform where your little one can walk through the maze like structure. There is a rope climb that your two year old may want to try. There’s not much to it, but it’s a great place to explore.
8. The Lost Kingdom Adventure
The Lost Kingdom Adventure is a great ride where your little one uses a laser blaster to shoot interactive Lego characters. The ride also keeps score so older siblings can compete to see who can get the most points. This ride is appropriate for your two-year old dependent upon what types of things scare them. It is a dark ride and there are some things that possibly would scare a two-year old-spiders, mummies, etc. You can watch our video below to see a preview of the ride.
9. Pharaoh’s Revenge
Pharaoh’s Revenge is a play area your two year old is sure to love. It is a two story play structure full of fun. Your little one can choose to climb to the top to shoot soft balls down at the people below. They then can go below and help send the balls back up to the people at the top with tubes of air. You definitely can spend a good amount of time here but it does get a little hot so be sure to hit the misting fan just outside the structure.
10. Safari Trek
This next ride is sure to be a favorite of your two year old. Just be prepared it is one of the longer lines in the park. Also be prepared that your child must be at least 34″ to ride. Jonah is on the shorter end so it was not until recently that he was able to ride this one. This is an adorable ride where your child gets to drive through the safari and see many lego animals.
Ninjago is a fantastic ride that any child that can sit up on their own can ride. You are a ninja fighting the bad guys by waving your hand over a circular sensor. It is a fun ride. However, it was definitely too extreme for my Jonah. As you can see in the video below there are very large screens with images such as snakes. There are also very loud noises. If your child does not mind these things then Ninjago may be for them.
12. Lego City Show
Our next feature of Legoland for toddlers is the Lego City Show. Unfortunately this show is only available on weekends and special dates so be sure to check your show guide to see if it is available.
13. Pirates Cove Ski Show
The ski show is definitely one of our family favorites. No matter how many times we go to Legoland we are always sure to catch the ski show. It has spectacular water skiing and an adorable storyline to go along with it. Again be sure to check your show guide to be sure not to miss it. On slower days they typically have 2 shows and busier days there are 3.
14. Cypress Gardens
Located right next to the ski show is the old Cypress Gardens. Back before Legoland, the park was Cypress Gardens. Legoland has taken measures to be sure to preserve the original gardens established more than 75 years ago. It is a great place to see some beautiful plants and flowers. Be sure to check out the amazing Banyan tree planted back in 1939.
15. Imagination Zone
Another great place to get a break from the heat is in the Imagination Zone. The Imagination Zone is a great place to have some hands on play. From the Lego pits filled with Legos to play in to building your own Lego car to race you are sure to find something your two year old will enjoy.
16. Boating School
Another family favorite is boating school. On this ride your two year old can take the wheel and drive their little boat through a path. While driving there are cute Lego characters to observe. The best part of this ride is the laughter that will ensue once you realize that the boat is not on a track.
As a heads up this is usually one of the longest rides in the park. If you are getting to the park when it opens I would suggest getting this ride in first to avoid the longer lines later in the day.
17. Rescue Academy
Rescue Academy is an adorable ride. Your child gets to pretend to be a firefighter while mom or/and dad get a work out :). There are four fire trucks that race to put out fires. You will pump your firetruck down to the end of the track. Next, you jump out and use a water hose to put out your fire. You then jump back in your fire truck and race back to the beginning.
18. Duplo Tot Spot
This air-conditioned play place is located at the very back of the park. It is another great place designated for children under 2 to have their own place to play. With airplane themed rubber play structures it is sure to entertain your little one.
19. Miniland USA
Miniland is a great place to see some amazing Lego creations. Your little one can also go around and push the buttons to experience different features. All of our children enjoy this area with the favorite being the space shuttle that launches.
20. Character Meet & Greets
The character meet & greets are a great way to capture photos of your favorite Lego characters. Be sure to check out the show schedule for the times the characters are available.
BONUS: Battle Of Bricksburg
At the time of this writing, the Lego Movie World is just opening. This is a great new area of Legoland Florida. The ride that your two-year-old will be able to ride is the Battle Of Bricksburg. Be Prepared you will get wet on this ride. On this ride you travel on a boat spraying the Duplo Alien Invaders. It is a fun slow ride with a lot of water which is always fun for the whole family!
Other Things To Consider
You will need sunscreen and a sun hat is always nice. The majority of the year Central Florida weather is HOT so you’ll want to be sure to have the necessary supplies to keep your little one protected. Our favorite toddler sun hat is the iplay sun hat.
The water park (if open-check the schedule before you go) is great for little ones as well. You will need your child’s bathing suit and a towel. I would also recommend a pair of flip flops for the whole family to wear in the bathroom while changing.
Sometimes it is difficult to imagine all that Legoland has to offer for little ones so we also made a video that covers shows our two year old at Legoland.
