Canada’s largest and most international city, dynamic Toronto mingles historical neighborhoods with hipster enclaves, sky-high landmarks with Victorian architecture, and vibrant cultural offerings with much-loved sports teams. Here’s how to plan the perfect 1-day stay.
LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto
1 Bass Pro Mills Drive, Vaughan, Ontario
Geared toward kids ages 2 to 10, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s permanent exhibits include a LEGO factory tour, which demonstrates how plastic is turned into LEGOblocks; Miniland, a detailed miniature replica of Toronto; and Merlin’s Apprentice, a ride that features interactive challenges.
To prevent overcrowding, LEGOLAND limits the number of guests on site at one time. Reserve your admission ticket online in advance to guarantee entry and skip the sometimes long lines.

How to Get There
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is located in the Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Toronto, and is most easily accessed by car via Route 400. If traveling by public transit, take bus 20 or bus 760, which both stop at the entrance to Vaughan Mills.
When to Get There
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 7pm on Sunday. Although it’s certainly busiest on weekends, the venue limits the number of guests, ensuring that it never feels overly crowded. Visitors holding annual passes gain access to special events, from exclusive movie previews to breakfast with the LEGOLAND mascot. Themed adult nights are held on the last Friday of every other month.
Tips and Tricks
The Discovery Centre’s LEGOMaster Builder Academy holds workshops that offer the company's secret tips and tricks for building with LEGOs. With classes that range from how to build a car to making intricate designs, Master Builder Academy leaves children and their families with new skills to take home and try on their own. Workshops are held every hour from 11am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm to 6pm on Sunday.
