How to Get to Legoland Florida
Legoland is located in Winterhaven Florida, 33884. If you’re staying in Miamihttp://www.miamigov.com/home/ or in Orlandohttp://www.cityoforlando.net/, and you have reserved a rental car you can take International Highway I-4 East until exit 27 on the Polk County Parkway. It’s about a 3 hour trip between Miami and Legoland, and about 45 minutes between Orlando and Legoland. It’s not a difficult trip, the route is well marked. However you can enjoy the journey even more if your rental car has a GPS that speaks your language. It’s also helpful to contact a rental car that does not impose a daily mile limit, so you can avoid the inconvenience of extra costs that you have not expected. RentingCarz offers this service in the USA.
Upon arriving to the park entrance, you’ll see a sign that says Legoland. If you continue along that way in your rental car and later turn left, you’ll pass through the exterior part of the parking lot which will lead you to the ticket-booth. Here the cost is US$14 per day. Unlike other parking lots, this one does not have a VIP section, so it’s advisable to arrive early to get spots closer to the entrance doors. The parking lot opens about 45 minutes before the park opens.
