THROUGH DECEMBER: Donate a Walmart toy to Toys for Tots at LEGOLAND® and kids get in FREE!

Give back and save this holiday season!

From now until the end of the month, donate a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more from participating Walmart locations at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and receive a free, one-day child’s ticket (valued at $86.99 plus tax) with the purchase of a one-day adult ticket.

Through the combined efforts of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Walmart Stores, Inc., Coca-Cola Beverages Florida and Toys for Tots, all donated toys will go to deserving children in Central Florida through Polk County’s Toys for Tots program.

But don’t wait too long, time’s almost up! This Kids Go Free deal is valid through Dec. 31, 2017 — just in time to experience Christmas Bricktacular or Kids’ New Year’s Party! The offer cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions, and adult tickets purchased prior to the toy donation are not eligible to receive the Kids Go Free discount.

Guests will earn one Kids Go Free discount for each qualifying toy purchased and donated, along with the corresponding purchase of an adult ticket at the same time.

You can donate as many toys as you’d like! For example, if you purchase three toys each worth $5 or more at participating Walmart locations and donate them at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, you’ll receive three free child tickets with the purchase of three adult tickets.

In order to receive the “Kids Go Free” discount, the donated toy must be purchased at participating Walmart stores from Tampa to Daytona Beach and dropped off in Toys for Tots collection bins at the theme park entrance. Walmart proof of purchase must be presented along with the donated toy to receive the discount.

In just four weeks, we’ll be hosting the world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure,” a dazzling new attraction that continues the story of Emmet and his friends after the events of the hit movie.

To prepare, we’re adding some Hollywood-style glamour to the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater, where the action-packed 12 1/2-minute film will play several times a day.

Here’s a look at the theater from earlier tonight:

A brand-new canopy recently was installed in the entrance plaza, giving the theme park venue a more regal look.

But that’s not all!

Much more is on the way ahead of the attraction’s debut, including something terrific under construction behind the fabric on the right. That’s a story for another day, however.

Tonight, we’re giving our fans an exclusive sneak peek at a towering new addition that will greet guests when they approach the theater. Two giant, golden statues of a certain… “special” hero from “The LEGO® Movie™.” Here’s a rendering of what they’ll look like once installed at more than 8 feet tall:

Awesome, huh?
