The theme park is rolling out the red carpet for the dazzling new attraction and has unveiled many Hollywood-style enhancements at the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater, where the 12 ½-minute film will play several times a day starting Friday, Jan. 29.

Earlier this week, star Emmet Brickowski added an appropriately glamorous finishing touch by placing his distinctive hands and signature in cement, a time-honored show business tradition that will continue when his handprints go on permanent display outside the theater, along with those of his co-stars Wyldstyle, Benny, Unikitty, MetalBeard and shady newcomer Risky Business.

Join us Friday here on the Official LEGOLAND Florida Resort Blog for a photo-filled recap of the star-studded ceremony celebrating the fun new attraction’s debut.

It’s gonna be awesome!

A while back, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort partnered with the HLN cable network’s popular talk show, “Morning Express with Robin Meade,” to sponsor a Grand Prize vacation for the family of a child who created the most impressive LEGO monster model. The #BrickOrTreatContest drew entries from all over the country, and in the end, we decided to give the Grand Prize to all three kid finalists.

One, 10-year-old Sage Stuchell of Petoskey, Mich., arrives with his family this week. Here’s what he had to say before leaving home, where today’s high temperature is a frosty 30 degrees:

I feel very excited to be going to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.  I’ve always loved building with LEGO® and wanted to go to LEGOLAND ever since I heard about it in the LEGO Club Magazine. I look forward to meeting Emmet and all the other characters that can be found in LEGOLAND. I can’t wait to meet a LEGO Master Model Builder in the hotel workshop. One question I will have to ask is, What is the best way to create a LEGO model from an idea?

The Dragon is one of the first rides I would like to ride — it sounds super fun. I think “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” is going to be awesome. LEGO is the coolest toy.

Check back on our blog for a recap of Sage’s whirlwind visit, including his trip down the red carpet for tomorrow’s invitation-only world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” and a private tour of the model shop located inside our brand-new LEGOLAND Hotel.

Tonight, we’re giving our fans an exclusive sneak peek at a towering new addition that will greet guests when they approach the theater.
