LEGOLAND Florida has revealed its official opening date: Saturday, 15 October 2011. The new 61-hectare theme park will feature more than 50 ride, including roller coasters to racing cars, as well as family-focused shows and attractions.
“I’d estimate 80 percent of the inquiries we’ve received have been about our opening date,” said LEGOLAND Florida Sales Manager, Todd Andrus. “Guests are all but begging to know the date, so they can book their flights and accommodations, and purchase admission tickets.”
The park has also unveiled a new online reservations programme. Travellers can now book tickets, accommodations, airlines and rental cars through the LEGOLAND Florida website.
“Planning a family vacation can be daunting, especially for families with very young children,” said Andrus. “Packing alone is enough to overwhelm even the most organised parents. That’s why we designed our online system to be both user-friendly and convenient, allowing parents to book the essentials and then print out everything they’ll need right at home.”
The other key benefit of the programme, Andrus explained, is that it features 13 preferred hotels in Central Florida that are officially endorsed by the park. Part of the ‘Bed & Brick’ programme, the hotels are all family friendly and collectively provide a range of price points and assets to accommodate different styles and budgets. Each of the hotels in the program will offer special rates and ticket/room packages.
