Journey to Mythica 4D Movie Debuts at LEGOLAND

LEGOLAND Florida Journey to Mythica

Enter an undiscovered world where LEGO creatures come to life with an all-new 4D movie, LEGO MYTHICA – JOURNEY TO MYTHICA, and an augmented reality (AR) experience opening May 27 at LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s Fun Town Theater.

Full of adventures and mysterious creatures all waiting to be discovered, LEGO MYTHICA is an incredible parallel universe to ours. A universe that, unbeknown to us, has been created by the power of kids’ imagination. Whenever a child takes the time and care to build a creature from LEGO bricks, it comes to life for real in MYTHICA. Starting May 27, this new journey comes to the theme park built for kids with two adventurous experiences.

NEW 4D MOVIE! LEGO MYTHICA – JOURNEY TO MYTHICA

LEGO MYTHICA – JOURNEY TO MYTHICA follows Bobs, a courageous little Alicorn on a 4D adventure into MYTHICA. There he will experience enchanted forests, raging seas, hidden caves, fire, and ice. He will have to escape the Chimera, soar with Maximus the Sky Lion and make a splash with Duo the Hydra, all before discovering his true powers.

This all-new 4D movie will be showing daily inside the LEGOLAND Fun Town Theater.

NEW AR EXPERIENCE! LEGO MYTHICA in MINILAND

LEGOLAND Florida Resort invites guests to enjoy the all-new 4D movie and then explore a world of imagination to see LEGO MYTHICA creatures come to life before their eyes. In this AR (Augmented Reality) scavenger hunt in MINILAND, families will work together to find the creatures from the 4D movie and save MYTHICA by inspiring kids to create again. Explore all sections of MINILAND to discover seven hidden LEGOMYTHICA creatures and “capture” them as digital trading cards, revealing their organic forms within the world of MYTHICA. This exclusive AR experience can be accessed by downloading the free LEGOLAND Florida app.

MINILAND will reopen for this limited-time experience over the summer before continuing construction on its previously announced shade structure.

Both awesome experiences are included in the price of admission to LEGOLAND Florida. For more information, visit LEGOLAND.com/Florida.

Planet LEGOLAND to Debut at LEGOLAND Florida

Planet LEGOLAND LEGOLAND Florida

The LEGOLAND Florida Resort is excited to introduce a world with no rules just pure creativity… PLANET LEGOLAND opening April 16, 2021!

This new immersive build experience encourages children and their parents to unleash their imaginations by building, unbuilding, and rebuilding the world of their dreams with, of course, LEGO bricks.

“During the past 12 months, we’ve all learned how resilient and creative our children are. They can play out stories, discover details and feel the sense of accomplishment when they build and play with LEGO,” said LEGOLAND Florida Resort President Rex Jackson. “With PLANET LEGOLAND, there are no rules, just unlimited creativity, empowering children to make the world a brighter place.”

Planet LEGOLAND LEGOLAND Florida

As guests enter, they will encounter a six-foot wide LEGO globe, built out of more than 200,000 bricks, awaiting their creations.

The first step is to select from one of four different themed stations where guests will create their masterpieces.

Planet LEGOLAND LEGOLAND Florida

A LEGO model of a castle spaceship sits atop the building table inspired by Dragons, Knights, and Princesses; a LEGO pirate ship with a lightbulb mast inspires those building at the Vehicles station; a LEGO surfing dragon leads creativity at the station for Ninjas; and a LEGO racing tortoise poses for inspiration at the station for Creatures and Animals.

A DUPLO station is also available for those younger guests with smaller hands. The stations are designed to encourage guests to explore their individual passions as they build, unbuild and rebuild creations using their imagination.

Planet LEGOLAND LEGOLAND Florida

Once built, guests are encouraged to take a selfie with their model and share it using #RebuildTheWorld for all to see.

The final step is to place individual models on the globe and once each child places their model, they have helped rebuild the world!

As the LEGO globe at PLANET LEGOLAND spans six-feet, guests will maintain that same distance when building in this new experience and all safety guidelines such as face masks, the use of hand sanitizer and reduced capacity will be managed.

Planet LEGOLAND LEGOLAND Florida

All bricks in the space will be “quarantined” for 72 hours after being sanitized, and the build stations will be cleaned several times a day.

LEGOLAND will host a sneak peek for Annual Passholders with an Exclusive Preview Event on April 15.

Disney Springs Reopening

It was really great to have a portion of the Walt Disney World Resort open again for guests, and even better that I had the opportunity to visit!!!

If you are going to make your way to Disney Springs, make sure that you bring your mask, 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. 

Universal Orlando’s CityWalk

Daily, 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!

  1. Download the Official Universal Orlando Resort App – Cashless 
  1. 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
  1. Be prepared  – Have that mask on and ready as you approach the temperature check 
  1. 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.

LEGOLAND Florida Announces Reopening Info

LEGO Movie World News

Let’s not waste any time…I am so excited to let you know that LEGOLAND Florida Resort will officially reopen on June 1!!!!!

The Resort will initially open with adjusted operating hours. LEGOLAND Theme Park will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and LEGOLAND Waterpark will be open daily from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s extensive plan of enhanced health and safety measures have been endorsed by the Polk County Commission and Winter Haven Mayor Bradley T. Dantzler and now fully comply with Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order 2020-123.  

As the health and safety of guests and employees at LEGOLAND Florida Resort continues to be paramount, the plan includes reduced capacity, cashless payments, social distancing practices, and enhanced cleaning regimes.

The plan has been developed with measures based on government advice and the requirements of health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“As part of Merlin Entertainments, our leaders across the globe have been sharing best practices daily, and we’ve been able to apply what we’ve learned from other successful Merlin attraction reopenings to be confident with our Resort’s reopening plan. In addition, we have also sought guidance from our partners at AdventHealth,” said General Manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort Rex Jackson. “We’re ready to play, and we look forward to reopening LEGOLAND Florida Resort as a safe and memorable place for families to play again.”

Here is a look at what guests can expect with the reopening of LEGOLAND Florida Resort on June 1, 2020:

PLANNING

Guests are encouraged to download the LEGOLAND mobile app and review the website in advance of their arrival, for a full outline of the parks’ new arrival and attractions procedures, as well as details on the enhanced cleaning measures.

Tickets and vacations should be booked in advance online, when possible.

Guests should be prepared to make on-site payments using a credit or debit card as cash will no longer be accepted on property. Guests experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19 should refrain from visiting the Resort.

ARRIVAL

At the time of reopening, the Park will operate at 50 percent of its capacity.

If guests are arriving by car, they should expect to leave spaces in between vehicles and follow additional spacing instructions.

All park employees and guests will be required to undergo non-invasive temperature checks. Those with a temperature of 100.4 F will not be allowed entry, nor will those in their party.

THROUGH THE RESORT

Every employee at LEGOLAND will wear a facial covering, and we will provide complimentary masks to encourage all our guests, ages three and above, to do the same.

Brick-themed spatial markers and kid-friendly, parkwide signage will help remind guests of social distancing recommendations and hygiene practices.

More than 200 hand sanitizing stations have been added throughout the park. Guests can view these locations on the LEGOLAND mobile app while traversing the park.

Character meet and greets and other select attractions will be suspended at the time of reopening.

Enhanced cleaning measures throughout the day will disinfect high-frequency touchpoints, including ride restraints, tables and chairs, service counters, handles and door handles.

Guests will also see enhancements in our mobile app over the coming weeks that will allow them to reserve their spot in queue lines for major attractions directly from their own devices.

Along with the park and waterpark’s reopening, the all-new LEGOLAND

Pirate Island Hotel will debut on June 1. Reservations are available for travel dates June 1 or later for both LEGOLAND Pirate Island Hotel and LEGOLAND Hotel.

Guests can stay up-to-date, with operational changes, as well as health and safety enhancements online by visiting:

Wallenda to Walk the Pirate Island Hotel Plank

Nik Wallenda LEGOLAND Florida Pirate Island Hotel Announcement

Just a few days after he performed his most daring stunt yet, walking over an active volcano, live on ABC, world-renown daredevil Nik Wallenda announced this morning that his next major event will be at LEGOLAND Florida Resort to mark the opening of the all-new Pirate Island Hotel.

In true pirate-fashion, Wallenda will “walk the plank” from inside the theme park to the new hotel to kick off the resort’s opening festivities on Thursday, April 16. LEGOLAND Florida Resort park and hotel guests are invited to take part in the fun and watch the nail-biting stunt safely from the ground.

This 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.   

LEGOLAND and Nik Wallenda fans alike can stay tuned to Facebook and Instagram as the park releases additional details on how to watch the stunt unfold live on Thursday, April 16. 

Pirate Island Hotel will officially open to the public on Fri., April 17. Reservations are available at LEGOLAND.com/pirateisland
