Legoland Florida Resort will celebrate the holiday season with festive activities and entertainment on nine nights when Christmas Bricktacular returns starting December 17, with several new activities joining this year’s lineup.
Beginning Saturday, Dec. 17 this year, Legoland Florida’s Christmas Bricktacular provides lots of hands-on experiences where kids can enjoy the holiday festivities: from a sparkling fireworks show over Lake Eloise to meet-and-greet opportunities with Lego Santa and Lego Toy Soldier; from a holiday-themed scavenger hunt through the streets of Miniland USA to dazzling photo backdrops including a giant Christmas tree and a life-size Santa Claus, both made out of thousands of ordinary Lego and Duplo bricks.
Adding to the merriment are several brand-new entertainment offerings this year, including a live, holiday-themed stage show starring the Lego Friends; Storytime with Mrs. Claus; and live performances of classic Christmas music by the Lego Brickettes. Other returning activities include Lego builds with Master Model Builders and a station where — through Saturday, December 24 — kids can write and send a letter to Santa at the North Pole.
Christmas Bricktacular takes place throughout the day and is included with all forms of park admission, including one-day tickets and annual passes, on the following 2016 dates:
December 17-18 (Saturday & Sunday)
December 24-30 (Saturday-Friday)
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the Lego fans in your life, enjoy an extra hour among the shops in Fun Town and The Beginning each night of Christmas Bricktacular after the park closes, including The Big Shop, LEGO Studio Store, Minifigure Market and Heartlake Mall. Guests can obtain a complimentary, one-hour Shopper’s Pass at the theme park ticket windows. The cost of a single-day admission ticket is required as a deposit, which is refunded upon exit within the one-hour time limit.
Beginning Nov. 26, LEGOLAND Florida Resort guests can make the holidays merrier with several premium upgrades:
