We visited Legoland Discovery Center on 3/29/13, which was the first week it opened. We went in a group. The kids enjoyed themselves immensely, the adults were more frazzled.I'll break the visit down into pros and cons:

Pros:
All staff members were extremely courteous, friendly, and helpful
Kids loved the playground jungle gym feature, and the build-your-own racecar feature
Coffee was delicious and inexpensive
Everything was clean
Gift shop has a large selection of unique Lego items with good price ranges. (Adult in the group loved the Lego Death Star kit).

Cons:
Waayyyyy, waaaayyyy too crowded. There were so many people in there that it was very difficult to even find a place to stand! To be honest though, we did go DURING spring break, and in opening week. So I guess the crowds were to be expected. The website said guests stay 2-3 hours. We were there about 5 hours. We didn't see any people leaving, there were long lines for each feature. If the crowds were minimal, your kid could have his fill of the park in 3 hours.
Food court options are pricey. Try the Greek restaurant outside the entrance, it was delicious with excellent service.
Poor supervision in the play structure. Big kids kept pushing smaller kids into the slide entrance at the top of the structure. I told my daughter to steer clear of the slide so she wouldnt get hurt.

I think most of these glitches will work themselves out with time. And the crowds will abate when the newness wears off. This is not really an amusement park, its more of an indoor play area, with a really cute gift shop. We'd come again on a midweek school day when there would be much fewer people. And I'd like to emphasize, the kids in our group truly enjoyed themselves.

So...wear comfortable shoes, get some coffee, get ready for kid happiness mayhem, and building block extravaganza!
