Legoland Florida is a delightful place for all kids, but it took on some special magic earlier this week. That's when a group of children from the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida (DSACF) joined their families for a very special day in the park.
Merlin Entertainments, which owns Legoland Florida, is opening its 100th attraction this year. Park of the celebration to mark that milestone is helping special needs kids enjoy the attractions, or even bringing special play areas to those who are unable to visit.
Merlin's Magic Wand is Merlin's charitable organization, which hosted the Legoland Florida visits by the DCACF kids. As you can see in the video accompanying this article, they had a great day of rides and merriment as they explored the park.
"The Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida is honored to partner with Legoland," said Edward DeAguilera, the group's Director of Development & Community Partnerships. "With World Down Syndrome Day being on March 21st it is great way to celebrate our loved ones with Down syndrome, create awareness, and just have a good time! DSACF truly thanks Legoland and Merlin’s Magic Wand, Merlin Entertainment Group’s Charity, for being true partners in our community."
