It’s the most wonderful time of the year! LEGOLAND® Florida Resort kicked off the holiday season on Saturday, December 6th with a 30-foot LEGO® Christmas tree lighting! This marked the beginning of Christmas Bricktacular presented by Shutterfly®, continuing weekends in December. Don’t worry if you were unable to attend the event! We’ve got you covered with a full recap of the experience:
The night began with the joyous sound of Christmas carolers singing all your favorite holiday songs including: Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jingle Bells, and Feliz Navidad.
To officially begin the awesome ceremony, LEGOLAND had a little help from some familiar characters. Emmet and Wyldstyle joined the celebration and pumped up the crowd to welcome LEGO® Santa and help with the highly anticipated countdown!
Our Guests of Honor were over 200 Make-A-Wish visitors. Thanks to Merlin’s Magic Wand, the families were provided tickets to enjoy LEGOLAND Florida Resort for the day. Four children were selected to help light the LEGO® tree which is made up of 270,000 LEGO® and DUPLO® bricks! The Tree Lighting marked the beginning of Christmas Bricktacular and other holiday events taking place during December at LEGOLAND Florida Resort. This holiday event is included in your park admission so be sure to take advantage by visiting weekends in December!
Christmas Bricktacular presented by Shutterfly® takes place on December 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, and 21. Guests can enjoy Nightly Fireworks December 26-30 leading up to our Kids’ New Year’s Eve celebration on December 31st! See our website for more details.
LEGOLAND® Florida will celebrate the 4th of July with a big bang for the Independence Day event – Red, Brick & Boom from July 4-6.
To get in the mood you should definitely join the “Super Brick” American Flag Build, built out of hundreds of LEGO® bricks on July 4, while listening to some patriotic anthems! You don’t want to miss the Scavenger Hunt and see what’s hidden in MINILAND to win a LEGO Prize pack and much more! You can pick-up and return your entry form at the LEGO Studio Store in FUN TOWN. Be certain to watch out for a Competition Build in the IMAGINATION ZONE from 10:00am – 6:00pm, where guests can build the best patriotic-themed LEGO model on July 4. On July 5 and 6 the Building Competition will continue with a special LEGO Movie theme!
To top it off LEGOLAND Florida will have extended hours during these three nights! Don’t miss the “AWESOME” Fireworks Show inspired by The LEGO Movie in Pirates Cove at 9:00pm, including such hits as “Everything is Awesome!” Grab your special 3D glasses in Pirates Cove starting at 8:00pm and just enjoy the moment. With those special glasses you can see ordinary fireworks turning into millions of exploding LEGO bricks. This is definitely sure to dazzle and delight! Red, Brick and Boom is included with park admission.
