More fun in 2023 at LEGOLAND New York Resort

We had the chance to have more fun this year at LEGOLAND New York Resort in Goshen NY on our way to a wedding.

This year, we took everything we learned from our trip last summer and planned ahead, taking lots of minifigs (for trading), bringing lots of sunscreen, umbrellas and a wagon so we didn't have to carry everything on our backs.

The Water Playground in LEGO City opened after our visit last year and is a perfect destination when it's hot outside. Reservations are required and can only be made starting at 7 am every day for a 20 minute period. The kids really enjoyed their time running around since it was so hot. 

We had my parents with us and my mom has a hard time walking around. We tried out one of the electric scooters and she said she wouldn't have been able to go around the park without it - it certainly was a life saver. There is lots of walking to do so be sure to bring a good pair of sneakers or walking shoes. I definitely felt it just a few hours into the first day!

Right when we got to the park, the kids started trading mini figures. We were pleasantly surprised with some of the trades we made. The most exciting ones we got were Disney minifigs.

We visited during the July 4th holiday weekend so we were treated to a nice display of fireworks every night and they passed out special glasses you could wear that would turn the fireworks into LEGO bricks. They also had special patriotic builds around the park and you could even help build a special piece of artwork by completing a 

This year, we had the opportunity to check out the new water park in LEGO City and the Miniland hub in addition to seeing all of the fun attractions we enjoyed last year.

One thing to remember is that there aren't many places for shade so we brought umbrellas with us for the occasional rain shower in the forecast but also to use to make a little bit of shade and it definitely saved us a few times.

The rides we loved the most were the LEGO factory tour where you are turned into a minifig and the Ninjago ride. We also enjoyed the random LEGO character encounters that we would have as we walked around the park. We really liked interacting with the Joker at LEGO Castle.
