ONE WEEKEND LEFT! LEGO® Star Wars™ Days continues May 13-14

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.

Elsewhere, LEGO enthusiasts and fans of the Star Wars™ saga can build with bricks throughout the theme park in lots of fun ways…

Help our Master Model Builders create a giant LEGO® Star Wars™ mural brick by brick, or contribute pieces to the world’s largest LEGO Yoda model. Or build your own spaceship, droid, hero or villain inspired by the LEGO® Star Wars™ movies and spin-offs.

You also can meet LEGO Darth Vader, enter our LEGO® Star Wars™ costume parade (ages 12 and under) and test your family’s Star Wars™ knowledge and LEGO building skills against other families in a fun competition new to this year’s event.

LEGOLAND® Florida Resort celebrates Autism Awareness Month with ‘Light It Up Blue’ campaign and fundraising efforts

Earlier this week we shared a few of the many ways we’re working to make our resort more enjoyable for guests on the autism spectrum (“Here’s how we’re making LEGOLAND® Florida Resort a better place for guests with autism spectrum disorders”).

As part of Autism Speaks’ “Light It Up Blue” campaign, which honors April 2’s World Autism Awareness Day, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort lit several of its miniature LEGO® landmarks in blue.

For Autism Awareness Month, which is observed in April, we’re showing our support for the many guests with autism spectrum disorders who visit us from around the world, along with their families and caregivers.

Each year around the world, landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes unite by shining bright blue lights in support of individuals and families affected by autism.

Like we did last year, we’re once again taking part in Autism Speaks“Light It Up Blue” campaign in honor of April 2’s World Autism Awareness Day. Each year, iconic landmarks, skyscrapers, schools, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families affected by autism. This year we lit some of the miniature LEGO® landmarks in MINILAND USA in blue.

 

 

 

 

Come build with us during April 22’s Autism Speaks Walk at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

On Saturday, April 22, LEGOLAND Florida Resort will host a hands-on building opportunity for kids during the Autism Speaks Walk at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., and on Saturday, Nov. 11 during the Autism Speaks Walk at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs, Fla.

Through a special promotion during Autism Awareness Month, LEGOLAND Florida Resort will contribute $15 of the proceeds from each ticket sold to the North and Central Florida chapter of Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks supporters can purchase print-at-home theme park tickets at a discounted rate of $45 plus tax, a $48 savings off the price of an adult ticket purchased at the resort’s ticket windows. This offer only will be available online through  Autism Speaks from April 1 through May 31, 2017.

 

LEGOLAND Florida Resort will participate in Autism Speaks Walks in Tampa, Fla., on April 22 and in Altamonte Springs, Fla., on Nov. 11.

Like the “we care” value we live by, “Being a Force for Good” is another campaign our parent company conducts around the world to improve and enhance the communities we operate in and the guests we serve.

Our efforts to make LEGOLAND Florida Resort a more enjoyable experience don’t end with the activities and efforts described this week, however. We welcome your feedback on more ways we can ensure that each and every guest who visits us has a truly brick-tastic day, every day.
