We’re built for little kids too

LEGOLAND is built for ALL kids- and that includes our littlest brick lovers! While theme parks may seem like an overwhelming place to bring your little ones, here at LEGOLAND Florida Resort we pride ourselves in being able to provide an awesome experience for you and your little one. (Many thanks to Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center!)

One of the best amenities we have for our little ones is our Baby Care Center – presented by Heart of Florida. Our Baby Care Center is located in the DUPLO Barn in the middle of DUPLO Valley – the area of the park where our smallest guests can take control! Your little one can splash around with farm animals in the DUPLO Splash & Play, take a ride on the DUPLO Train and when it’s time to get some much-needed AC, they can relax in the DUPLO Farm area where they can slide and climb around on a whole host of farm animals!

 

The best part about the DUPLO Farm for little ones is the Baby Care Center located at the back of the barn! This area provides 3 private nursing areas and 4 changing areas, as well as a bottle warming station and more!

Sound too good to be true? Check it out!

That’s right! A designated area for your little one to play AND get taken care of – sounds pretty awesome to us! Thanks, Heart of Florida!

On your mark, get set, collect!

Summer is coming and here in Florida, we know what that means…some hot days out in the park! Never fear, we have a brand new souvenir cup for you to stay refreshed all day.  Many of you may know that we introduced the Coca-Cola Freestyle® program into LEGOLAND® Florida Resort last year.  And, you probably also know that there has only been one design for the cups available in the “Refresh and Refill” stations throughout the park.  All that is about to change!

We’re introducing a new souvenir cup that features some of your favorite LEGO® costume characters including Captain Brickbeard, Emmett, Wyldstyle, and the Adventurer. Don’t worry though, if you haven’t had the chance to get your NINJAGO™ cup, it’s still available too.  And, with special deals when you buy 2 or more souvenir cups, you can start your very own collection!

Like the new design and wish there were more cups to collect? Good news!  We will have 2 more new designs coming in 2018.  But, you will have to visit us during Brick-or-Treat and Christmas Bricktacular to get them since they will be holiday themed and available only during those times.

Get one or collect them all! Our souvenir cups allow you to fill up with your favorite Coca-Cola products all day long for one low price.  The choice is yours as you get to choose from more than 100 beverages including low and no-calorie options.  Then, bring your souvenir back with you on your next LEGOLAND visit and get all-day refills for a highly discounted rate.

It’s gonna get hot out there, stay refreshed and hydrated! What characters would you like to see on the Brick or Treat and Christmas Bricktacular cups?

Inside the Making of a Brick & Boom Fireworks Celebration

Did you know the origins of fireworks date back 1000 years? According to most historians, the Chinese originally used fireworks to ward off evil spirits! Fireworks have come a long way in 1000 years and are now used for entertainment and celebration! Have you ever wondered, as I have, what goes into making a modern day fireworks show?

I interviewed Jaime Becerra, one of our awesome Model Citizens (fancy term for employees) from our Entertainment Tech team to learn what it takes to plan a fireworks show. I learned several things about the planning process, such as the development begins 7-12 months in advance; however, the more interesting part is the technical bit, which is best stated from Jaime’s words!

Q: How many people does it take to run a firework spectacular?

A: The fireworks team consists of several people, including a Main Shooter, 4 loaders, and 3 Pyro Assists. The lights, music and fireworks are all synced with time code from a computer and sent to other consoles, so people do not need to manually ignite the fireworks. The Main Shooter sits in the tech booth onsite and is in charge of the preshow continuity checks and monitors weather, particularly wind direction and instructs the Pyro Assists on any changes.  The four loaders spend their day loading the product and wiring it.  Two Pyro Assists start on the water and are in charge of the positioning several pyro barges. The land Pyro Assist gives directions to the two out on the water to ensure proper placement of the barges.  Once barges are placed, they ensure continuity with the Main Shooter, and then take their places on land to act as spotters for falling debris.  In order to create a full spectacular we also have several audio and lighting techs, as well as a full usher team to assist with the guests.

Q: What types of fireworks and other special effects are used during a show?

A: The majority of the fireworks are aerial, but we also use red strobe nautical with ground fireworks and of course accompany the show with themed lighting and festive music. For aerial fireworks, we like to use fireworks with a pyro technic tail so you can watch the lights go up to add to the interactive experience with your 3D glasses.

Q: The 3D glasses are amazing, can you tell me a little more about them?

A: We hand out special viewing glasses with special holographic lenses that turn the light from the fireworks into 2×2 LEGO bricks. The glasses immerse you into the experience and enhance the theming of the show. These are free for guests and act as a great souvenir to take home.

Q: What is your favorite part about the show?

 

 

“After the finale when you hear the roar of the crowd, it makes all the prep and planning worth it!”

Want to see it for yourself? Join us for Red, White & Boom this July 4 where you can dance the night away, build a patriotic creation and enjoy the biggest fireworks spectacular of the year, featuring festive music and star spangled lights during the Brick & Boom Fireworks Celebration!
