Mobility challenges or difficulty waiting in lines? Pick up a no-wait Hero Pass

To assist guests who have difficulty waiting in line, such as those with mobility challenges or guests using wheelchairs, the no-cost “Hero Pass” allows a LEGOLAND guest and one helper expedited access to popular theme park attractions. Meanwhile, the rest of the guest’s party will receive a reservation to return together at the designated time.

The no-cost “Blue Hero Pass” is offered specifically for guests on the autism spectrum and allows the guest’s entire group expedited access through the Hero Pass entrance of popular attractions.

Both Hero Pass types are available from Guest Services under the blue awning near the theme park’s exit. The Hero Pass is offered at the discretion of LEGOLAND staff as a courtesy for guests in genuine need of special assistance and can be revoked if terms are violated.

Accommodations for guests with cognitive disabilities

Beginning in 2016, LEGOLAND Florida Resort began launching a variety of services and initiatives to assist guests with autism spectrum disorders and their caregivers, efforts that have expanded in subsequent years to include the following:

  • Specially equipped spaces in the theme park’s Annual Pass, First Aid and Baby Care facilities serve as designated “quiet rooms” where quests on the autism spectrum and their families can take a break. Noise-cancelling headphones, weighted blankets, squishy toys and LEGO® building tables are some of the complimentary resources available. A similar space also is available within Guest Services at LEGOLAND Water Park.
  • The LEGOLAND Training & Development team has created “social stories” that offer an illustrated, step-by-step walkthrough of every theme park ride and show, so guests won’t be surprised by periods of darkness, loud noises, bright lights or other elements that often can be frightening or overwhelming. They’re available for review at Guest Services.
  • All newly hired resort employees receive specialized training to equip them with skills to more effectively interact with guests on the autism spectrum, as well as their families or caregivers. Consultants include Dr. Craig Glaser, the resort’s medical director, who also serves as medical director of Winter Haven’s Urgent Care Cypress facility nearby.

In honor of World Autism Awareness Day, observed annually on April 2, LEGOLANDFlorida Resort once again participated in Autism Speaks’ “Light It Up Blue” campaign by illuminating the theme park’s iconic Grand Carousel with blue bulbs. The famous double-decker carousel will remain blue through April for World Autism Month.

Each year, iconic landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families affected by autism. For more information, visit
