Now through Dec. 31, kids go free at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort when guests purchase a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more at participating Walmart locations in Central Florida, then donate the toy outside the theme park ticket windows and purchase an adult ticket at the same time.

It’s all part of a great promotion that unites LEGOLAND, Walmart Stores, Inc., Coca-Cola Beverages Florida and Toys for Tots in a unique effort to brighten the holidays of deserving children. The donated toys will benefit kids in Florida’s Polk County, home of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, through the Toys for Tots program.
