LEGOLAND NY – HOT TIP AUGUST 2021

Heading to Legoland NY for the day? Read this first.

It is SO exciting we finally have a super cool theme park destination (aside from Great Adventure or Dorney Park) just minutes from the house! This theme park isn’t as strongly expensive as other theme park destinations and won’t really break the bank. Preparing is always a MUST when planning to hit out any theme park for the day.

Legoland NEW YORK has been slowly opening all of their attractions and it seems they are all finally running smoothly – I think. Still some kinks to iron out but it is fun and looking good.

YOU ARE GOING TO GET WET

Legoland has a pirate boat ride that is so enticing and so much fun for the kiddos as well as your ENTIRE FAMILY! On this attraction you get to spray and soak every person you ride past, as well as Life-Sized LEGO MINIFIGURES along the attraction. The kicker is, the people standing along side of the ride get to shoot spray you as well – out of water cannons – and you are going to get SOAKED depending on where you are sitting!

So definitely prep yourself for that. I do not think you need to wear a bathing suit as there is no waterpark. But maybe if you do this ride first you will dry as you walk around.

This is an excellent ride to start out a super hot summer day at LEGOLAND NY!

Which Walt Disney World Resort I recommend for Summer 2021

Thinking of heading to Walt Disney World in the next few months? This is the hotel I recommend for Summer 2021.

DISCLAIMER: I am by no means responsible for anything that could happen or go wrong on your vacation; these are just my opinions after years and years of vacationing at Walt Disney World.

While we are still coming out of the pandemic and Disney World is still slowly opening up resorts, attractions and dining locations, I would suggest the best possible hotel to stay at currently would be (assuming you’re a party of no bigger than 4):

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort

EVERYTHING IS CONDENSED INTO ONE BUILDING

Florida can be terribly hot and humid and there is nothing like getting off a Disney bus, all hot and sweaty from a super fantastic day at the parks and walking into ONE wonderfully airconditioned building providing not just your cool room, but gift shop, quick service and restaurants all inside. It is so super convenient to have all of this inside the same building for extra AC and to avoid the constant rain showers that Summer 2021 is bringing us! Not to mention the lobby is stunning and the rooms are gorgeous!

BOAT TO MAGIC KINGDOM

Having the easy 10 minute boat ride to and from Magic Kingdom really does make your vacation feel extra magical!

FIREWORKS VIEWS FROM SOME LOCATIONS AT THE RESORT

Summer 2019 was the first time we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge and we were surprised with a beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom Castle as well as fireworks from our balcony! Now that the fireworks are back you are sure to enjoy!

WITH MANY DINING LOCATIONS CURRENTLY CLOSED, MORE DINING OPTIONS AVAILABLE

Whispering Canyon Cafรฉ has been open which is a delicious table-service restaurant if you need a change from quick service. Wilderness Lodge also has Geyser Point Bar and Grill which is an outdoor, water-view restaurant which is another great option to have. You can’t go wrong at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

AS A DISNEY WORLD DELUXE HOTEL ACCOMODATION, THE RATES AREN’T AWFUL AND WORTH IT

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge falls into the deluxe hotel categories because of it’s many amenities and for being one of the Magic Kingdom Resorts, but it isn’t nearly priced as high as the Contemporary, Grand Floridian or especially right now the Polynesian – if you ask for a standard view room. It is one of more affordable deluxe accommodations with many comforting habituations. Also this deluxe resort offers a slide at the main pool and there is a splash pad for the younger kids which gives you a little more to do at the resort.
