We arrived first thing in the morning, and didn't have any lines to deal with which was exactly what we were hoping for! The kids were definitely ready to start their adventures.
We started our day with SeaLife. Different rooms had fish that glow, turtles, a touch pool, and every other type of sealife imaginable. The best part? The exhibit was designed for the height of little kids. My kids are only two-years-old, but they were able to see everything without us having to continually pick them up.

After exploring SeaLife, we took a break for lunch. This was our kids first time walking through something like this, and we didn't want to tire them out too quickly. Legoland has a cafe inside their atraction, but the day was beautiful, so we brought a sack lunch and ate at the picnic tables just outside. The kids also had a chance to run around a bit more freely before we went back inside for our second adventure.

And then it was time to head off to our second adventure: LegoLand!
The first room young builders enter is the Lego "Factory" Room. Here they have some cute "machines" where kids can pretend that they are making legos. This is also where you can view the Lego Master Builder at work. Caleb is our block builder (using toddler size legos), and he was fascinated by what he saw.

There are two rides in LegoLand. We tried one ride where you play a life-size version of a computer lego game and save the princess. Remember how I said that our two sensory kids really loved SeaLife? Well, let's just say that sensory kids may want to avoid this ride. But Abby and Elijah thought it was fun! In fact, Abby and Elijah quickly decided that LegoLand was definitely more their speed!
That girl cut years off of my life. Sheesh.
Anyway, once we found her, we explored the rest of the attraction.
Some of the activities in LegoLand were too old for our kids, so we decided to hold off for a few years until they can really enjoy them.
But they did have a fun little nook with gigantic blocks and animals made out of legos! We headed to the toddler area and let the kids play there for a few minutes before we headed home.
A couple of things if you are thinking about visiting either SeaLife Kansas City or LegoLand Kansas City:
- Kids two-years-old and under are free!
- They do not allow side-by-side twin strollers because the paths are very narrow. Front-and-back twin strollers are allowed, but I think you'd be better off with a couple of umbrella strollers if you have multiples and enough adults to push them.
- Leave the diaper bags at home and use backpacks instead. It's just easier to carry all that stuff around and keep your arms and hand available for more important things (like keeping track of
