There’s only one weekend left for the only LEGO® Star Wars™ theme park event in Central Florida this year! On Saturday and Sunday, LEGO® Star Wars™ Days brings a galaxy full of fun to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.

 

See what 1.5 million LEGO bricks can make in MINILAND USA, where Master Model Builders have created miniature scenes from several of the famous film saga’s most memorable moments, brick by brick. From the Millennium Falcon lifting off from Docking Bay 94 to Anakin Skywalker’s fateful duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi, plus familiar music and sound effects.

Here’s the event guide, which lists all the fun.

Want to build with us? You can!

On both days, kids can help us create a giant LEGO Yoda model and a LEGO® Star Wars™ mural. You can also build your own creatures and creations from a “galaxy far, far away” and learn some of our Master Model Builders’ secrets.

Meanwhile, LEGO Darth Vader will be available for meet-and-greets and the droids you’re looking for will be hidden throughout MINILAND USA. Kids 12 and under can enter our popular costume parade dressed as their favorite LEGO® Star Wars™ character, and families can face off in a friendly test of their Star Wars™ knowledge and LEGO building skills in a fun new competition.

Everything’s happening both days and it’s all included with park admission! Plus, we’ve even got a few surprises up our Jedi cloaks…

As Yoda might say, Come, you must. There is no try.
