Model Citizens celebrate Earth Day with third annual street cleanup

Recently, a group of enthusiastic Model Citizens came together to clean roads leading to our favorite place, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort! To do our part in the Great American Cleanup, we organized our annual, voluntary cleanup, which collected more than 30 bags of loose trash scattered along Cypress Gardens Boulevard and Helena Road outside the resort in Winter Haven, Fla.

The Great American Cleanup is a nationwide initiative led by Keep America Beautiful that has taken place annually for more than three decades. For the past three years, LEGOLAND Florida Resort has joined the effort as part of Keep Polk County Beautiful. For us, it’s all about upholding one of our parent company’s core values — being a force for good.

LEGOLAND® Beach Retreat NOW OPEN at LEGOLAND Florida Resort!

Under a beautiful blue sky on a morning filled with the state’s abundant sunshine, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort officially opened LEGOLAND Beach Retreat today, giving guests great new reasons to play — and stay — at the place #BuiltForKids. Here’s the beachy grand opening ceremony as it streamed live on Facebook, direct from #BrickBeach:

Filled with creative LEGO® theming inside and out, the village-style vacation resort features brightly colored bungalows grouped into 13 horseshoe-shaped “coves” named after popular LEGO Minifigures. The fun begins almost immediately, thanks to a drive-through check-in process that takes you from your car to your cove in minutes.

Designed to look like larger-than-life LEGO sets, 83 bungalows offer 166 separate rooms that sleep up to five, including a cozy area just for kids with a bunk bed, trundle bed and privacy curtain.

LEGOLAND Beach Retreat

They’re an ideal solution for families and groups traveling together, or for those seeking a fun new way to vacation at LEGOLAND Florida Resort. Each cove has its own outdoor play area within view of the bungalows’ shaded patios, where mom and dad can relax while kids romp and run.

Along with picturesque lake views and a giant LEGO lighthouse that really lights up, highlights include:

  • A giant swimming pool next to The Lighthouse, with an adjacent sandy area perfect for building sandcastles and the resort’s biggest outdoor play structure for kids.

  • Sandy’s Castle Restaurant, featuring a bountiful menu of entrees, sides and desserts designed to please the palates of kids and grownups alike. A delicious breakfast buffet is included with each night’s stay.

  • Bricks Beach Bar, offering an eclectic menu of made-to-order food, drinks and creative cocktails served both poolside and indoors.
  • Palm Tree Traders, a large retail shop stocked with LEGO building sets and Minifigures, apparel, toys, swimwear, snacks and sundries.

  • A hands-on LEGO building station where kids can contribute their original creations to a giant sandcastle made out of thousands of LEGO bricks.

  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the site.
  • Complimentary transportation to the theme park entrance, as well as complimentary parking in LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s main parking lot for guests who choose to drive.
  • Early access to the LEGOLAND Florida theme park, with exclusive use of some of the most popular attractions, including the all-new LEGO NINJAGO® World and LEGO NINJAGO The Ride.

Located three-quarters of a mile from the theme park entrance on the tranquil shores of Lake Dexter, LEGOLAND Beach Retreat represents the latest milestone in the largest period of growth and expansion in the five-year history of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, with theming and architecture unique among the eight LEGOLAND resorts worldwide. The Florida site is the first LEGOLAND resort in North America to offer a second accommodation type for overnight and multi-day stays, and more than doubles accommodations at the resort.

Nightly room rates start at $135 (plus tax and resort fee) and vary by season, date and availability. Packages including theme park tickets also are available, and Awesomer and Awesomest Annual Pass Members receive a 10 percent discount year-round. To book a stay, visit www.LEGOLAND.com/florida or call (877) 350-5346 daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern.

LEGOLAND® Florida Resort celebrates Autism Awareness Month with ‘Light It Up Blue’ campaign and fundraising efforts

Earlier this week we shared a few of the many ways we’re working to make our resort more enjoyable for guests on the autism spectrum (“Here’s how we’re making LEGOLAND® Florida Resort a better place for guests with autism spectrum disorders”).

As part of Autism Speaks’ “Light It Up Blue” campaign, which honors April 2’s World Autism Awareness Day, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort lit several of its miniature LEGO® landmarks in blue.

For Autism Awareness Month, which is observed in April, we’re showing our support for the many guests with autism spectrum disorders who visit us from around the world, along with their families and caregivers.

Each year around the world, landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes unite by shining bright blue lights in support of individuals and families affected by autism.

Like we did last year, we’re once again taking part in Autism Speaks“Light It Up Blue” campaign in honor of April 2’s World Autism Awareness Day. Each year, iconic landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families affected by autism. This year we lit some of the miniature LEGO® landmarks in MINILAND USA in blue.

 

 

 

 

Come build with us during April 22’s Autism Speaks Walk at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

On Saturday, April 22, LEGOLAND Florida Resort will host a hands-on building opportunity for kids during the Autism Speaks Walk at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., and on Saturday, Nov. 11 during the Autism Speaks Walk at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs, Fla.

Through a special promotion during Autism Awareness Month, LEGOLAND Florida Resort will contribute $15 of the proceeds from each ticket sold to the North and Central Florida chapter of Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks supporters can purchase print-at-home theme park tickets at a discounted rate of $45 plus tax, a $48 savings off the price of an adult ticket purchased at the resort’s ticket windows. This offer only will be available online through  Autism Speaks from April 1 through May 31, 2017.

 

LEGOLAND Florida Resort will participate in Autism Speaks Walks in Tampa, Fla., on April 22 and in Altamonte Springs, Fla., on Nov. 11.

Like the “we care” value we live by, “Being a Force for Good” is another campaign our parent company conducts around the world to improve and enhance the communities we operate in and the guests we serve.

Our efforts to make LEGOLAND Florida Resort a more enjoyable experience don’t end with the activities and efforts described this week, however. We welcome your feedback on more ways we can ensure that each and every guest who visits us has a truly brick-tastic day, every day.
