WINTER HAVEN, Florida. – Legoland Florida Resort is officially designated as a Certified Center for Autism, making it the first theme park to receive this certification.
The designation now covers the theme park, water park, hotel, its Pirate Island hotel and its beach retreat. The Peppa Pig theme park, part of Legoland, opened in February as a certified center for autism.

The station has partnered with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) to obtain the special accreditation.

According to Legoland, as a certified center for autism, the station will provide:
Trained, helpful and equipped frontline team members to best assist guests with autism or those with other sensory sensitivities and help them enjoy their stay at the resort
A sensory guide for each attraction that provides insight into how the attraction or ride can be affected by each of the five senses to make it easier for individuals and families to plan activities that match their needs and accommodations
Low sensory zones to allow guests with sensory sensitivities to pause and relax in a less stimulating environment
An updated accessibility guide, which will be available on its website and in its customer relations areas.
