LEGOLAND Florida Announces Thrilling February Events

LEGOLAND will kick off a stunt-stacked weekend on Friday, February 12 as world-renowned daredevil Nik Wallenda will walk across a high wire five stories above park guests to celebrate the debut of LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s all-new Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show and PirateFest Weekends.

LEGOLAND FLORIDA_PirateFest Weekends

In true pirate-fashion, Wallenda will “walk the plank” 60 feet in the air from inside the Theme Park to the new LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel to kick off the Resort’s first-ever pirate invasion!

Park and hotel guests are invited to take part in the fun by watching this nail-biting stunt safely from the ground.

This one-time-only event will be no “walk in the park” for the Wallenda Team as they will construct a high wire longer than 500 feet for the walk. They will also work closely with LEGOLAND Master Model Builders to craft LEGO® bricks onto Wallenda’s 28-foot balance pole.

This daring demonstration is the first event in a year-long celebration for the Park’s 10th birthday. From the skies to the seas, the stunts keep coming with the all-new show and event!

Named by LEGOLAND Florida’s social media fans and co-developed with LEGO masterminds, the cunning and fierce female pirate, “Calico Jade,” joins fan-favorite Captain Brickbeard as he whips his crew of new recruits into shape through a series of thrilling stunts on the seas. World-class wakeboarding, barefoot skiing, jump acts and an all-new flyboard act take this high-energy show to heroic heights above the legendary Lake Eloise.

With the all-new Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show weighing anchor, the Theme Park will be overtaken by the famous pirate’s feisty friends, for its first ever PirateFest Weekends!

What’s New This Weekend On the Go in the Parks

Disney Springs Town Center at Walt Disney World Resort Disney Springs Reopening
Photo: Walt Disney World Resort

The First Disney Operated locations opened at Disney Springs this week, which was really cool because it was great to get a look at how the virtual queue works!

Disney Springs is utilizing this system at both World of Disney and the Marketplace Co-Op, and to enter these shopping locations when it is busy you needed to join a virtual queue. 

To join the virtual queue find the Cast Member managing the queue near the entrance to the location, give them your cell phone number, and they will send you a text when it is your time to shop.

It’s super simple!!!

The third location that opened was D-Luxe Burger for mobile orders. YUM!!!!

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Disney Springs

It’s really great to have Disney Springs open again for guests, and it keeps getting better because now you can find Stormtroopers about the AMC theater entrance near Splitsville and in the Town Center above Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories.

If you are going to make your way to Disney Springs, make sure that you:

  • Bring your mask (here’s a quick no-sew mask DIY),
  • Make any dining reservations you would like in advance online, and 
  • Take the time to be patient as Cast Members are still getting used to new cleaning procedures. 
  • Check out these helpful Tips & Tricks on where to park and more!

Universal Orlando’s CityWalk

4pm – 10pm

Universal Orlando Resort CityWalk Reopening

It was so great to once again see people roaming CityWalk, but I will caution you that I expect the area to be busy this weekend so there a few things you can do to cut down on your waits!

To make your visit easier:

  • Download the Official Universal Orlando Resort App as they are encouraging cashless transactions.
  • Plan to arrive early: They are limiting the number of guests they are allowing in the CityWalk area, and there can be a back up at the parking plaza as self-parking is free.
  • Be prepared  – Have that mask on and ready as you approach the temperature check. 
  • Be patient – Mind those 6ft social distancing markers on the ground, relax, and make sure to enjoy your time once again at Universal’s CityWalk!!!

CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort is open daily from 4-10 pm, but please remember that the theme parks and resorts are still currently closed.
