Legoland Florida Resort has become the first theme park resort to become a Certified Autism Center (CAC).
This Resort-wide CAC designation recognises all Legoland related rides and attractions.
The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) awards the CAC certification to organizations completing guest-facing staff training and certification.
IBCCES conducted an onsite review Resort-wide to provide additional recommendations and options for autistic visitors and their families, and sensory guides to help guests understand and plan for the sensory impacts of each ride or attraction.
“We are proud that Legoland Florida Resort has partnered with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) to earn our designation as a Certified Autism Center across Legoland Florida Theme Park, Water Park, and the all-new Peppa Pig Theme Park,” said Kelly Hornick, Head of Marketing & Communications for Legoland Florida Resort and Peppa Pig Theme Park.
“We are passionate about being the Resort for families to build awesome vacation memories, and we are thankful to our partners at IBCCES for helping us be more welcoming and more inclusive to more families, including those with sensory needs.”
As a Certified Autism Center, Legoland Florida Resort can now provide trained, helpful, front-line team members equipped to better assist autistic guests or those with other sensory sensitivities and help them enjoy their time at the resort. The resort can also provide a sensory guide for every attraction that provides insight into how the attraction or ride may be affected by each of the five senses to make it easier for individuals and families to plan activities that align with their needs.
