Thanks to our friends at Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans, we were able to reimagine our indoor attraction inside DUPLO Valley into a brand-new experience for our younger brick fans to enjoy! The Florida Prepaid Schoolhouse is an air-conditioned, indoor attraction located inside DUPLO Valley You can't miss its colorful exterior and signature school bell when you make your way past the Grand Carousel. Inside the Florida Prepaid Schoolhouse, kids can build with LEGO bricks, explore on soft-play structures and even dream about what they want to be when they grow up. You'll want to check out the learning pad  where practicing numbers and letters is fun and interactive.

Our partnership with Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans will help you build towards the future while creating memorable experiences today!

Holiday Cheer is Here During Holidays at LEGOLAND!

Holidays at LEGOLAND presented by Hallmark Channel takes place on November 29-30, and December 1, 7-8, 14-15, 20-31 and features seasonal shows, special dining, twinkling lights and more! The top three things I am most looking forward to this year are the larger than life LEGO holiday builds, the Holly Jolly Jubilee show, and savory new treats!

Giant LEGO Holiday Builds

The classic family holiday photos take a unique twist at LEGOLAND with snowmen that don’t melt, a 30-foot Christmas tree that doesn’t shed needles, reindeer that won’t run away, and a LEGO wreath the whole family can fit inside!

Holly Jolly Jubilee Live Show

LEGOLAND is full of entertainment that makes you want to sing and dance, but ‘Holly Jolly Jubilee’ is my favorite! Families join the elves in the workshop as they help prepare Santa on his way for Christmas. This interactive musical will leave the family in the holiday spirit!

Seasonal Treats

Satisfy your sweet tooth with one of the many holiday treats! My personal favorites are the Snowballs on a Stick which are coconut-rolled white chocolate bon bon lollipops and the Oatmeal Christmas Crème Pie which consists of chewy oatmeal cookies sandwiched over a savory marshmallow crème inside!

A special gift – Holidays at LEGOLAND is included in General Admission! To get your LEGOLAND tickets, visit LEGOLAND.com/Florida.

Eat Your Way Through LEGOLAND Florida Resort!

Every wanted to eat your way through LEGOLAND?!! Tess Koman from Delish was up for the challenge and came out to try some of our delicious food items around the park. Check it out!

Granny’s Apple Fries

When I inquired after the park’s most iconic of foods, I was pointed immediately to the apple fries, which are French fry-shaped sticks of Granny Smith apples served with whipped cream or vanilla soft serve ice cream and caramel drizzle. They are perfect parts moist, crunchy, and squishy and are—and I cannot emphasize this enough—divine.

Pizza & Pasta Buffet

At first glance, this buffet’s got something for everyone: pizza (duh), pasta (duh), and more pizza and pasta. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find gems like this berry Nutella pie, which is lovingly covered with vanilla glaze and is perfect for sharing…after you crush your savory pizzas, of course.

Dragon’s Den

Sure, you could opt for the turkey leg (or, as they call it in LEGOLAND, the dragon leg), but this little nook also serves Loaded Tots that are spicy and cheesy and way more exciting than straight meat to the face. You’re welcome! You’re so welcome.

Taco Everyday

LEGOLAND is arguably the most kid-friendly theme park in Florida (trust me: I saw much fewer childless millennials than I have elsewhere), and Taco Everyday is a perfect example of why. Adults can get run-of-the-mill, delicious “big bites” tacos, and kids, in the same place, can get pink- or blue-shelled tacos that are much less complex and friendlier for the under-12 bunch.

Panini Grill

Come for the absurd amount of avocado on the sandwiches. Stay for the warm pretzel buns.

Funnel Cake Factory

I, funnel cake expert, cannot recommend the Funnel Cake Factory selections enough. The OG selection is lush and dense, and the crazier options (see: the cheesecake cube-covered debacle above) are sweet and super fun. Get ’em all. Have a party.

Kick’n Chicken Co.

Have you ever had a chicken sandwich whose buns are cinnamon sugar waffles? I certainly hadn’t. Until Winter Haven, FL.

Kingdom Cones

If there’s a ‘grammable food option in the park, it’s pretty much everything happening at Kingdom Cones. You have the option to swirl a vibrant color/flavor through your soft serve, resulting in this gorgeousness. Yum.


P.S. Sick of eating (lol) but still want to keep at your food-related activities? The park’s new Masters of Flight ride features cotton candy-scented air that is both delicious and trippy. A delightful combo!

A Bag Full of Treats During Brick or Treat

Treats, treats and more treats! If you're coming to Brick or Treat this October, you really don't want to miss out on all the goodies you can get on our Brick or Treat Trail.  You'll walk through the fog and Halloween lights to trick-or-treat at our themed-houses and get treats to fill your bag. Complimentary bags are handed out at the start of the trail and Annual Passholders will receive a special keepsake bag. Of course, you're also free to bring your own trick-or-treat bucket and you're encouraged to wear your Halloween costumes to make the event even more festive!

A big thanks goes out to all of our Brick or Treat goody sponsors!  Make sure you find the goodies from Airheads, Snyder's, YumEarth, GoGo Squeeze and NFPA.  But, that's not all the yummy treats you'll find.  If you want to see what else we have for you, I guess you'll have to come discover for yourself on the Brick or Treat Trail only during Brick or Treat at LEGOLAND Florida.
