Last week  Lori Watson and I made our way down to LEGOLAND for a site inspection of this new Florida attraction (Lori develops and markets our tours to all of the Florida attractions).  Located between Tampa and Orlando in the town of Winter Haven, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found here: kids having lots of fun and learning at the same time!

Designed for younger children (in my opinion students from kindergarten through fourth grade), this park is so much more than sculptures created with Lego building materials – although the sculptures are absolutely incredible.  What this park creates is a warm and friendly environment for kids to engage in all kinds of activities.  There are rides designed for young travelers, an exciting 4-D theatre, great entertainment, water ski shows, impressive gardens and a special educational center.  During our visit I saw kids totally immersed in the LEGOLAND experience.  What I did not witness was bored, complaining kids (which I do see from time to time at attractions).

The educational programs offered to children are outstanding.  There are eight to choose from and each program last 45 minutes in length.  The kids I saw participating in the programs had big smiles on their faces.  Little did they know or care that all of the programs incorporated STEM and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.  The instructors were dynamic and had their students totally involved with hands-on activities.

I came away from my visit quite impressed.  We are partnering with LEGOLAND to offer very reasonably priced trips that your young students are just going to love.  While the savings will be substantial, the experience the kids will have will be even more special.  Please call Lori Watson or email  lwatson@myedtours.com for more details and pricing from your area.
