Legoland Florida is the first major theme park in the state of Florida to officially announce their re opening date since the COVID-19 closures in March. Legoland Florida will officially be re opening on Monday June 1st with some new regulations. Yesterday, Legoland Florida presented a plan to the Orange County Task Force to re open the resort as well as a set re opening which everyone now knows is June 1st. The plan was approved but still had to be approved by Gov. Ron Desantis, and now is officially confirmed.
All guests who are looking to visit Legoland Florida are encouraged to wear a face masks, an important thing to keep in mind is even though it’s not required we HIGHLY recommend wearing a masks for you and others health and safety. The park will be providing complimentary masks for everyone who is visiting the parks. Every employee however will be required to wear a face mask. Social distancing markers will play a big part in the parks re opening with kid friendly brick themed markers scattered through the resort to ensure guests are taking the necessary steps to social distancing. Like other theme parks, Legoland will implement the use of the virtual queue system for some of their rides and attractions. Guests can download the Legoland Florida app and reserve their place in queue lines for these specific rides and attractions.
Hand sanitizer will play a key role in keeping guests safe at the resort and that’s why more than 200 stations have been installed through the resort and the best part about this is guests can view these various locations on the interactive map in the Legoland Florida app. Certain attractions and experiences such as character meet and greets will be temporarily suspended for the time being but hopefully we can see them return in the near future. All railings, door handles, ride restraints, and other areas that are touched frequently throughout the day will be sanitized at an effective rate to ensure the health and safety of all guests. No cash will be excepted at the resort as well, Legoland will only be offering cashless transactions such as Debit cards, Credit cards, etc. and the park encourages everyone to download the mobile app to purchase tickets, make online reservations, and more to prevent in person contact buying tickets at the property.
Guests who have 100.4 degrees temperature or greater will not be permitted into Legoland Florida, everyone will be screened prior to entering the theme park. There are certain arrival procedures as well such as leaving spaces in between cars when parking in the lot. The theme park will currently operate at 50% capacity and will open with both the Legoland Water Park and the NEW Pirate Island Hotel! The current adjusted hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily for the main theme park and 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. daily for the water park.
This is a big step in the right direction for theme parks all across the country and we hope to see everyone taking the necessary steps while visiting Legoland Florida to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
