A shopping experience with every imaginable LEGO creation set amongst towering LEGO creations of a giraffe, R2D2, Darth Vader, and the Empire State Building (just to name a few!). Lego tables with buckets of bricks are available for kids of all ages to play in.
Located in the Downtown Disney District right across from the Monorail Station.
This is a must-stop if you have lego-loving kids. Just seeing all the gigantic sculptures is awe-inspiring! Legos are sadly too expensive too buy as many as we wish we could, but it's fun to stop in just for inspiration!! Love the "pick a brick" wall where you can just buy loose bricks of whatever color you want!!
My first advice - set a budget before you even enter the store for you chid, um, or your grownup Lego lover!! Legos of every price, interest, age group, and wow the things they can make with Legos!! Look for the Legos that aren't available in your local stores. If you can buy it at Target or Toys R Us, you don't want to both with buying it at a Lego store and dragging it home. Look for the Lego branded items that are only available in the Lego store, or the specialty sets that are hard to find! And be prepared to spend awhile here (and unless you stick to that budget I mentioned, plan to spend $$$!)!
My 3 year old loved the Lego Imagination Center. She plays with the lego duplo blocks at home. She loved playing with all the leogs and building things. I loved being able to see all the different legos that were available. There are so many different kinds. The Lego Imagination Center if located in a great area.
The LEGO Imagination Center is located right in the heart of Downtown Disney. There is no cost associated with a visit to LEGO.
In my mind, the greatest thing about the center is that there are LEGOs to build and play with without having to pay. On a sunny day, the center puts out buckets of both DUPLOS for the little ones, and regular sized LEGOS for the older kids. Kids (and their parents) are able to make vehicles of their own and then race them on the raceway outside the store. (Please note: the expectation is that these LEGOS are returned to their bins after kids are done playing.) There are also several spots inside the store with the same set up, making the trip worthwhile regardless of weather. On our last visit, the 3 and 4 year olds in our group enjoyed all of the activities, and it was obvious that the middle school aged boys gathering around the exhibit did as well.
If you are in the mood to start or add to a LEGO collection, this is the place for you! Lining the walls are all the LEGO sets of which one could dream.
The LEGO Imagination Center (also known as the LEGO store) is easily accessible from the Disney Trams, Monorail, Disneyland Hotel or Disney parking lots (esp. Lilo, Mickey and Friends, and Simba.)
My kids love this store. My older boys (10 and 8) have been here many times. But my 4 year old's eyes were just alight with the awe of seeing a life sized Woody and a gigantic giraffe all made out of LEGOS.
We took pictures next to Woody, Darth Vader and R2D2 and then they played in the bins of LEGOS set up for kids of all ages to put block together. A new feature we loved was the digital image on a screen of a LEGO set all put together and animated. The amazing thing was that it was digitizing the box set that we held in front of it. Too cool!
We love coming here as an outing and visiting all the wonderful LEGO sets and marveling at the LEGO statues. On occasion, we even plunk down some money for a new set. But most of the time, we have a fun free visit to this store.
