Thank you LEGOLAND® Florida for hosting us for the day! As always, all opinions are my own.
Christmas is officially 20 days away! I try my best to get all my shopping done by the first week of December, so we can take the kids to as many Christmas events as humanly possible. We kicked off the first day of December with a surprise trip to LEGOLAND® Florida for Christmas Bricktacular! We went to LEGOLAND® Florida back in March for the launch of the new The Great LEGO® Race. It’s North America’s First Virtual Reality Roller Coaster Adventure #BuiltForKids and combines Roller Coaster Thrills with Virtual Reality Tech!
This time, they invited us back to experience Christmas Bricktacular. Just like last time, we kept this visit a surprise to my LEGO-obsessed 4.5 year old. Once again, I had a very surprised and excited little boy on my hands. Even better–this time around he grew almost an inch and a half and could ride 2 new roller coasters! To say we had a blast is an understatement. So much fun, and best of all the weather was perfect and it wasn’t super crowded with long lines.
For those who aren’t familiar with Christmas Bricktacular it’s presented by Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas and is back at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort this December. You can celebrate the holidays with some very merry LEGO® builds, sweet holiday treats and resort-wide live entertainment during the theme park’s annual seasonal celebration for kids. This year, the festivities expand with “Holly Jolly Jubilee,” an all-new family-friendly show on the LEGO City Stage Presented by Wells Fargo. Santa’s elves are ready to send Saint Nick to the North Pole in this interactive show that will have guests singing along to songs of the season.
They had decorations on almost everything. Including the DUPLO figurine! Love his festive little Christmas sweater. Reagan on the other hand was a little confused on what was going on! lol
Included with park admission, Christmas Bricktacular takes place on select dates through December and provides a fun and interactive place for kids to enjoy the holiday festivities. Including meeting the LEGO Toy Soldier!
Activities for Christmas Bricktacular include:
- Synchronized light shows on a 30-foot-tall LEGO Christmas tree put on a dazzling display as “snow” flurries fall. Since we don’t get snow in Florida–this is the next best thing!
- Meet-and-greets with LEGO Santa and LEGO Toy Soldier
- Exclusive LEGO photo spots including: a life-sized model of Santa, Santa’s reindeer and sleigh, a giant holiday wreath and a friendly snowman
- “Holidays Around the World” LEGO Mosaic Build with a Master Model Builder, a LEGO Christmas tree build and a holiday-themed competition build when kids can use their imagination to create something spectacular for a chance to win a LEGO prize.
- “Santa’s Helper Scavenger Hunt” in MINILAND USA
- A “Letters to Santa” station with postage paid to the North Pole
Guests can indulge themselves in a taste of the season with holiday themed treats including Cheerful Churros and delicious Pumpkin Spice Granny’s Apple Fries. I love the traditional Granny’s Apple Fires but the Pumpkin Spice are a nice addition.
