Information on Legoland for Families

Family Care Center

The Family Care Center (FCC) is at the far side of Legoland in the "Fun Town" area of the park. This is quite a hike from many popular points in the park but because of the hilly terrain at Legoland, I cannot think of a better geographical location.

The entrance opens into the waiting area (above), which is furnished with a Duplo table full of toys, another table set up with photocopies of Lego scenes to color, and child-sized Lego bean bag chairs.

The interior, like the rest of Legoland, is a simple European style. The feeding area is very functional, although "institutional" also fits. Several rocking chairs (above), both adult and children's sizes, are separated by curtains, providing areas where mothers can nurse in private and can also be joined by members of her party.

Across from the feeding area is a small kitchen (above), which includes a microwave and refrigerator. Parents who sign a release form may store food in the refrigerator for the day. Highchairs are stored there to use in the feeding area.

In the back of the facility are two changing tables (above). These are the same European-styled changing tables as those in the restrooms, so they are too small for older toddlers or children with disabilities. There is a sink conveniently adjacent to each table. This area is small and very difficult to use if both changing tables are occupied. A unisex restroom is also available here.

If you are in the area and need to change a diaper, I highly suggest using the Family Care Center over any public restrooms. The facilities are kept very clean and towels are always available. By afternoon, the public restrooms of Legoland are in very bad shape!

An observation: During my visits to the Family Care Center, I have not seen the feeding areas being used; however, I have noticed several mothers nursing infants throughout Legoland's public areas. I am usually a pretty public nursing mother, although as Matthew got older, I sometimes preferred quiet areas to nurse, to minimize Matthew's distractions and help him relax.

Summary of Children's Meal

Legoland has four buffeterias and assorted counter-service kiosks. The kiosks serve snacks, ice cream, burgers, hot dogs and pizza. One delightful treat at Castle Hill is apple fries, which are french fry-style deep-fried Granny Smith apples sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and served with a whipped cream dip. Yummy!

I highly recommend Legoland's "Kid's Kit Meals" available at the buffeterias, which come with a package of two Oreo cookies. Better still, each meal comes with a cool sipper cup. This is more than the plastic cup with a lid that restaurants typically offer with kids meals: this is a thick plastic cup with an image of a dragon that appears when the cup is filled with a cold beverage! The lid is sturdy and the cup comes with a reusable plastic straw. At Garden Restaurant and Fun Town Market, these meals are served in a cardboard car tray. What can I say? Little touches mean a lot!

  • Chicken nuggets
