One of the best things about having an annual pass for Legoland is that it takes the pressure off when we visit. It doesn’t matter if Jessica decides that she “doesn’t like” going on certain rides or if there is a long queue for something – we can always go back another day.
Hubby bought me an annual pass for my birthday and Jessica also has a preschool pass which covers her and an accompanying adult during weekdays in term-time. This means that we can invite someone else to come with us for the day as my pass will cover me and Sophie gets in for free as she is under three. I love being able to invite a friend along – it’s nice to have another adult to talk to and if they have a child under three, they get to come along for free and the girls enjoy having company for the day too. My friend T and her 2 year old A have come with us a couple of times so far this season and it is lovely to see the three girls having fun together.
Earlier this week, Jessica’s preschool organised a day out at Legoland and being able to go to her “favourite Legoland ever” with her two best friends was the most exciting thing in the world for Jessica. Sophie also loves H and E too and the four children had a wonderful day together even if Jessica wasn’t quite as adventurous about the rides as her friends were!
For me the highlight of the day was watching the four of them at the pirate show together, seeing them dancing and really enjoying themselves. It’s still one of Jessica’ favourite things about going to Legoland although now that we’ve seen the new Heartlake City show, I think there might be a new favourite to take its place! Jessica was absolutely captivated by the “fairies” as she called them and their “beautiful dresses” and Sophie was up and dancing throughout the show too. I love the fact that both girls are developing a love of watching live shows and this something that hubby and I both enjoy and want to be able to share with our children.
Miniland is always a firm favourite whenever we have a day out in Legoland – Jessica loves to watch the train and the windmills in the Holland section and Sophie just runs about looking at everything! As Sophie gets to be quicker on her feet, it becomes more of a challenge trying to keep an eye on both of them and so we now always make sure we stop and get a couple of ‘lost child’ wristbands as soon as we arrive, just in case!
The Duplo train is still Jessica’s favourite ride – it’s one of the few rides that she is generally quite happy to go on, particularly if she gets to “drive” the train. Sophie is generally quite happy to go on any ride whereas Jessica gets quite nervous about certain rides, particularly the water ones.
We’ll be making the most of our passes for the next few weeks as once the summer holidays start, Jessica’s pass will no longer be valid and we’ll have to take a break from Legoland days out until the autumn.
