We saw everything in less than a day in January. I don't think it would be worth driving in twice, unless you want to do the water park too. However, we had very low crowds and kids at the upper end of the target audience (8 and 13) so others might have a different opinion.

A lot depends on the age of your child. DS was 10, and it's really geared to the younger set. We got there at park opening and left by 3pm at the latest because DS just wanted to get on over to WDW. However, he did Love the mindstorm lesson that you can sign up for. It lasts about an hour and got him hooked on robotics, which is a nice thing since the schools offer robotics clubs now.

This is the same question that I had so thanks!!!
BTW... where is the sticky under this forum for Legoland planning? Wish there was one. We have been to Disney once a year for 3 years & want to try something a little different this time. I have no idea of where to even start planning for the portion of our vacation that does not include Disney.
I do appreciate this wonderful Passporter website though. Thanks!

We try to incorporate a little something different too since going to the World so many years in a row. The drive to Legoland was only about half an hour and easy to get to. We've also gone to Kennedy Space Center for a day too. That was about 45 min. from the World. Since we drive to Orlando, we do an overnight at the "extra" place. For instance, we stayed by the space center & when we were ready to leave Kennedy, it was just a matter of jumping in the car and go! I just pack a duffle with what we'll need for the overnight and the rest stays in the trunk. Easy, breezy! Same for Legoland. The Best Western was right beside the park! I would say that Legoland is geared for the 10 & under crowd. But it was a really cute park.

We went in August and loved it. We did everything except the water park and we that in one day. It was really quiet but it was the end of August and midweek. My daredevil 5 yr old loved the coasters especially Coastersaurus. Her and DH got to ride several times without getting off as there was no queues whatsoever.
