So….any of you moms out there planning a visit to Legoland Toronto? I took a quick gauge of your interest over on Twitter and, honestly, you moms seem more stoked than the kids! Thanks to a family friend that I want to strangle,  my kid is insisting that he’s going, stat. I’m taking him, just not maybe during the opening week and/or in the middle of March Break, you know?

But for those of you keen to brave the excited crowds in March and during March Break, I did some research for you. Here are 5 facts about Legoland Discovery Centre in Toronto.

1. Your kids need to wear socks to play in the soft play areas. I imagine this isn’t a huge issue in March, but something to remember in sandal season, or for the sock-haters out there. If you forget them, Legoland sells socks for $1.

2. The best price for Legoland Toronto is on its website. I can’t vouch for this, but the site says that it offers a best price guarantee if you buy online. That price, as of today is $16.39 for anyone 3+. If you’re not yet 3, you get in free.

3. You can’t bring your own food. Which is kind of a bummer if you want to bring home-packed lunches. Only baby food and milk is allowed. But there is a café at the centre that offers drinks and snacks.

4. Adults can’t visit Legoland Discovery Centre without any children. According to Legoland Toronto’s website, the attraction is designed for families with children aged 3 to 10 years old. However, there will be adult nights for grownup Legophiles. I suppose you’ll have to stay tuned to its website to find out when.

5. Legoland is open until 9pm every night except Sunday, when it is open until 7pm. That’s great, in my opinion anyway, for night-owly evening-activity-loving families such as mine. The Legoland Store is open the same hours, too.
