Now through Dec. 31, kids go free at LEGOLAND Florida Resort when guests purchase a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more at dozens of participating Walmart locations in Central Florida, then donate the toy at the Winter Haven, Fla., theme park and purchase an adult ticket at the same time.  It’s all part of a great promotion that unites Coca-Cola Beverages Florida, LEGOLAND, Walmart Stores, Inc., and Toys for Tots in a unique effort to brighten the holidays of deserving children.

In order to receive the Kids Go Free discount, the donated toy must be purchased at participating Walmart stores from Tampa to Daytona Beach, and dropped off in Toys for Tots collection bins at the theme park entrance. Walmart proof of purchase must be presented along with the donated toy to receive the Kids Go Free discount.

In addition, the purchase of an adult ticket is required at the time of the toy donation to receive the free child’s ticket. This offer cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions, and adult tickets purchased prior to the toy donation are not eligible to receive the Kids Go Free discount.

The donated toys will benefit kids in Florida’s Polk County, home of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, through the Toys for Tots program. A printable PDF list of all participating Walmart stores is available online at

The Kids Go Free offer, which is valid through Dec. 31, 2016, entitles guests to one free child’s admission with the purchase of one full-price adult admission to LEGOLAND Florida Resort. Each qualifying toy is eligible for one Kids Go Free discount with purchase of single-day adult admission.

“This promotion is a perfect example of our partnership with our valued customers, Walmart and LEGOLAND Florida Resort,” said Reginald Goins, chief operating officer of Coca-Cola Beverages Florida. “We are proud to be serving the community together during the holiday season.”

Adrian Jones, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, said it’s a perfect example of parent company’s Merlin Entertainments’ commitment to enriching the communities in which it operates.

“As a vacation destination built for kids, we’re delighted to work with other businesses that share our desire to brighten the spirits of children,” he said.

According to George Overstreet, co-coordinator of Toys for Tots Polk County, the effort is a welcome gesture of goodwill for the region’s youngest members.

“Every child deserves a toy for Christmas,” he said.
