A big part of traveling overseas is exchanging your money. Now one of Central Florida’s many theme parks is making their park currency available at many locations outside the park.
Legoland Florida Resort has entered into an exclusive partnership with Travelex, an independent foreign exchange business, to list the resort’s official currency, Legoland Dollars, on Travelex’s currency exchange boards at 55 participating Travelex locations.
This partnership represents the first theme park to have an official currency listed on a currency exchange board. The Legoland Dollar will be available for purchase at a 1:1 exchange rate to the U.S. Dollar, with a minimum exchange of $5. Legoland Dollars will only be available for purchase with U.S. Dollars. Legoland Dollars can be purchased through the select Travelex locations for the summer 2015 season.
With a $50 purchase, guests will receive $50 in Legoland Dollars, plus an additional $39.25 in added value, including free parking, an upgrade to the Legoland Water Park and an order of the resort’s famous Granny’s Apple Fries. Legoland Dollars can be spent at any of the park’s restaurants, concessions, retail stores and more.
Legoland Dollars will be available at certain Travelex locations in Atlanta, Boca Raton, Dallas, DC, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Orlando, Palm Beach, Philadelphia and Tampa. For a full list of locations, visit Travelex.com/Legoland.
“Everything at Legoland Florida Resort is created for kids, including the currency. By using Legoland Dollars with a playful design, it builds on the immersive experience for young guests. Although we accept U.S. currency, only Legoland Dollars will get you an additional $39.25 in added value,” said Adrian Jones, general manager, Legoland Florida Resort.
“We’re pleased to add the Legoland dollar to our extensive range of currencies this summer. Of course, Legoland Florida Resort comes as highly recommended by my two sons, ages 4 and 8, but we’re also happy to offer additional value and benefits to our customers through this partnership”, said Christopher McShane, Head of retail, Travelex.
