Tips and tricks for this year’s Christmas Bricktacular

Christmas Bricktacular at LEGOLAND Florida ResortJoin us Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23-25 for LEGOLAND® Florida Resort’s brick-tastic holiday event included with park admission.  Here’s how to get the most out of your Christmas Bricktacular day!

Tip #1:  Visit early

The busiest event dates will be closer to Christmas, so avoid the hustle, bustle and long lines by visiting earlier in the month! You’ll get to enjoy everything the popular annual event has to offer!

Tip #2: Pick up an event guide

There’s plenty happening and the free event guide is your handy guide to all the holiday gifts we have in store for you. Learn about everything from brick-tastic shows to festive snacks, special offers to dazzling LEGO® photo ops like our giant new wreath or cheerful reindeer!  Pick one up as you enter the park.

Tip #3: Stay and play at LEGOLAND Hotel

Surround yourself in a Christmas wonderland at LEGOLAND Hotel. Exclusive activities are available free of charge for hotel guests during Christmas Bricktacular, such as decorating cookies with Mrs. Claus, creating a special holiday LEGO® model with a Master Model Builder or listening to a Christmas story during a stroll on the Christmas Boardwalk Tour.

Tip #4: Enjoy storytime with Mrs. Claus

In the theme park, listen to Mrs. Claus tell an interactive holiday story multiple times on each date of Christmas Bricktacular. Then write a letter to Santa and send it all the way to the North Pole. A little elf told us that Santa will reply to every LEGOLAND letter!

Tip #5: Save shopping for last

Do your shopping at the end of the day and you won’t have to carry your purchases around while having fun! Or, use our complimentary package pickup service if you shop throughout the day and have your purchases waiting for you to pick up on your way out.

UK singing sensation Sam Bailey visits LEGOLAND® Florida Resort during birthday celebration

UK pop star Sam Bailey, who recently wrapped her “Sing My Heart Out” tour in support of her second album, visited LEGOLAND® Florida Resort recently with husband Craig, their three children, Tommy, Brooke and Miley, mom Jackie and several close friends during a weeks-long Florida vacation celebrating her 40th birthday.

Sam, who rocketed to fame after winning Britain’s “The X Factor” TV talent competition in 2013, enjoyed a stay in the LEGO® Friends suite at our LEGOLAND Hotel, plus a private tour of the resort’s Model Shop, where Master Model Builders create and repair the many elaborate LEGO models on display throughout the theme park.

She autographed a star made of LEGO bricks for the hotel’s wall of fame, which includes autographs from celebrities such as singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, actress-singer Jennifer Hudson and broadcaster Megyn Kelly. In appreciation of her visit, we presented Sam with a mosaic of her debut single, “Skyscraper,” made out of more than 600 LEGO pieces.

Sam and friends ended the evening as special guests of LEGOLAND Knight Lights, our exclusive summertime event.
