Disney World

Magic Kingdom


You can’t have any list of amazing family friendly theme parks without having Disney World on the list! As one of the most popular parks around the world, Disney attracts families of every age and nationality every year to it’s Orlando headquarters.

What makes Disney World so special is it’s a number of parks wrapped into one. Explore incredible wildlife on safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, go for a full splashdown to escape the Florida heat at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, or enjoy the wonder of it all (and catch a princess or two) at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Legoland California

What kid doesn’t love Lego’s? Well any trip to Legoland in Carlsbad, California will make sure your kids will never get enough of them. This park is well suited for families of all ages, and features a lot more than just those famous building blocks.

There are over 60 different rides and attractions all split into ten different themed areas, like Land of Adventure, Legoland Water Park and Castle Hill. Some of the best attractions are the gigantic Lego sculptures that dot the park including a 34 foot long dinosaur that is made entirely of Legos!
