LEGOLAND Winter Haven - Day Trip Tips

By Published On: April 14th, 2021

LEGOLAND – Within Two Hours of Tampa Bay Area

Post 1 of 2: Our #LovingStPeteDayTrips series feature activities within a 2 hour drive of St. Pete, doable in a day. On Sunday we tackled the LEGOLAND Theme Park! (not their Water Park quite yet)

LEGOS are one of Colt’s favorite activities, though usually with mom. They even plan to be on the LEGO Masters TV show as a team one day. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Admittedly, LEGOS just aren’t in my bag. We’ve found my time is best spent outside with him 🏈 🎾🎣 and on our father/son adventures around town.

Long story short, when LEGOLAND offered $99 annual passes for Florida residents, we jumped on it as it’s a blend of something for everyone. The $99 deal was a savings of $50 per ticket, 33% off.

Monitor LEGOLAND Florida social media for resident annual pass specials. NOTE: If you remember only one tip from my two LL posts, make it the **last tip** in this afternoon’s LEGOLAND post!

Driving in From Tampa/St.Pete:

Only 90 minutes from St. Pete, LEGOLAND is fairly easy to reach by their 10am opening. Unlike Disney, reservations are not currently required, though if they reach ‘capacity’ you’ll be denied entry (per call with LL). This is one reason we tried to arrive soon after opening.

Upon arrival you’ll find that parking is free for pass holders, though you can pay $10 to upgrade to ‘preferred parking’ – a covered lot, very near the entrance. We opted for the upgrade and within 10 minutes we were inside the gates and on our first ride.

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
