About Peppa Pig Theme Park
Merlin Entertainments and Hasbro started work on the 4.5-acre Peppa Pigg Theme Park in August 2021. It’s located next door to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in Winter Haven, part of Polk Counties’ growing attractions.
The grand opening date was February 24th, 2022. And, this is the only Peppa Pig Theme Park on the planet!
Peppa Pig Theme Park features various rides and attractions for preschoolers and their parents. There is no minimum height restriction, and parents can enjoy all rides with their sprogs.
A Certified Autism Center Theme Park
Did you know that in America alone, between 1 in 44 children suffer from autism? Autistic people have social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication challenges. People with autism might have sensitivities to:
Balance – Vestibular
Awareness of body position and movement – Proprioception
Understanding of internal body cues and sensations – Interoception
Source: Autism Speaks
Peppa Pig Theme Park partnered with The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) to earn its accreditation as a Certified Autism Center (CAC). All staff is trained to meet IBCCES standards, and sensory guidelines meet the standards.
The sensory guides provide information on how a child with sensory processing issues may be affected by the five senses. The guides use a scale is 1 – 5, with one being the lowest in terms of impact to a sense.
I have to tell you this caught my attention. It made me stop and think for a while about what it must be like to have autism and not get to experience theme parks. I bet you that other parks will soon follow suit.

Grandpa Pig’s Greenhouse
Grandpa Pig is an expert gardener who particularly enjoys cultivating tomatoes in his greenhouse. Allow your children to climb, crawl, and slide their way around Grandpa Pig’s Greenhouse, an interactive outdoor playground.
Meet Peppa Pig
Perhaps the star attraction for some fans is the ability to meet Peppa Pig. I’ll be candid here; it never dawned on me that there would be characters on site. It never crossed my mind that there’d be a long line of fans wanting to take their picture with Peppa Pig. Consider me educated!
What touched me was how much joy this brought kids of all ages. You can pose with the characters and get a photo. It reminded me of how The Monkey used to react to characters at Disney. I also watched older autistic children pose and meet their favorite pig. It was evident how excited they were, crystal clear that this was something they had always dreamed of doing.
Note: I did not take a photo of any of the kids posing with Peppa Pig. This was a deliberate choice to respect the kids and families. Many of the kids in line were autistic. This is a commercial monetized site. It did not feel right to me to capture these moments.
If you visit the Peppa Park Theme Park, please educate your children on autism in advance so that all the children here can enjoy the park equally.

Peppa Pig Theme Park is a must-visit place for kids, especially those with autism. It’s a relatively small park but appropriately sized for the age group and audience. In fact, for parents trolling small sprogs, it’s a blessing. We’ve all got the t-shirt from walking miles and miles in the blazing heat across other parks. Or should I say, we’ve all had the feet blisters and chaffed legs! You don’t have to worry about that here.
My monkey is too old for Peppa Pig, so it’s not a place that we will frequent. However, I was impressed with this park. It’s affordable, spotless, it’s a perfect size, it’s a happy chilled out place, and it’s a ton of fun for kids.
Most importantly, I was blown away by the intentional provisions for autism. This is the first time I’ve ever seen this in a theme park, and I firmly believe we will see more of this shortly.
