The holidays at Legoland Florida have arrived! This fun and festive event is presented by the Hallmark Channel. All across the park are various holiday activities and fun for the whole family to enjoy. We had the opportunity to experience it for ourselves and wanted to share some highlights of what to expect!
Legoland Florida offers three specific holiday-themed shows on top of the already existing offerings that occur daily.
Two fun stage shows happen throughout the afternoon. Holly Jolly Jubilee and North Pole Nonsense follow the stories of the elves of the North Pole. While Holly Jolly Jubilee is a musical following the elves preparing Santa for his big day, North Pole Nonsense is filled with fun acrobatic style acts of two elves trying to find their place.
Our personal favorite show we experienced was Rockin’ Around. This takes place at the Lego built Christmas tree that’s at the front of the park. It’s a dazzling light display set to fun Christmas songs. This show occurs in the evening so it could be an excellent way to end your day!
We had an amazing time hanging out with some of the holiday-themed Lego characters. New for this year is the Lego Gingerbread Man and Holiday Unikitty. The meet and greet area for the Lego Gingerbread man even smelled like gingerbread. It was amazing!
Of course, no trip to Legoland for the holidays would be complete without meeting Lego Santa! He was just bricktastic and holly jolly as ever. Surprisingly there wasn’t a large line to meet Lego Santa. If you have little ones this may be an excellent opportunity to get a fun Santa photo with a minimum wait time, unlike other parks.
Throughout the park are fun festive-themed treats. We were grateful that a few were cooler treats geared towards our occasionally warm Florida Decembers. We tried out the Ho-Ho-Hot Chocolate Freeze and it was so good! Very similar to a chocolate milkshake and very much appreciated since it was warm out.
Other treats you could find around the park were the Merry Mint Twist and the Oatmeal Creme Pie. Both looked so good!
Something unique to Legoland we found was the fun Christmas activities. There was a variety of Lego-themed building opportunities. A really unique one was the Holidays Around The World Lego Mosaic Build. Families were able to build a small section of legos to add to a mosaic and by the end of the day, a full picture would be complete.
We also loved the Lego Holiday Build. Families are given the opportunity to help decorate a 19 foot tall Lego Christmas tree! There were a few ornament options to choose from to build for the tree.
Other activities included a fun scavenger hunt in the Miniland section of the park, letters to Santa, and a fun holiday-themed competition build.
Of course, it isn’t the holiday season if we didn’t talk about some shopping. In the stores near the front of the park, we found a few ornament options. A couple was pre-built including Hallmark branded ornaments.
The ornaments we really enjoyed were the Lego ornaments you take home and build. This could be a great gift for someone that really loves Legos. They had many options including Santa, a penguin, a snowman, and a reindeer.
We had a really great time experiencing the holidays at Legoland Florida! The decor was adorable and the variety of activities, entertainment, and festive treats got us in the holiday spirit. Legoland Florida should certainly be put on your holiday wish list this year!
