Take Pictures with the Special Characters at Brick or Treat

Aidan’s favorite part of visiting LEGOLAND is meeting all the characters he loves, and he was grinning ear to ear at all the different characters he got to high-five at the Brick or Treat Halloween Party. 

Every meet and greet that we went to had very short lines, there was no rushing, and I loved how each child really got to have a great one on one experience.  However, each character only comes out for 30 minutes during each time slot so if you are attending on a busy night make sure you get in line early.

Try One of the Yummy Halloween Themed Treats

Eat dinner early so you have plenty of room for all the pumpkin flavored yummyness!  I am absolutely obsessed with Granny Apple Fries and can’t imagine a trip to LEGOLAND Florida without them, So when I heard Granny Apple Fries got a pumpkin twist for Fall, it was my first stop on the way into the park!  Biggest Tip Ever: Try the Pumpkin Spice Granny Apple Fries!

Some other treats to try are:
Dirt Cups (Market Coffee Shop, Pepper and Roni’s Pizza Shop)
Spooky Trail Mix (Castle Burger, Fried Chicken Co. & Panini Grill, Market Restaurant)
Halloween Rice Krispy Treats (Market Restaurant)
Pumpkin Spice Flavor Burst (Kingdom Cones)

Bust Out Your Moves at the Monster Bash!

One of LEGOLAND Florida’s most popular rides is The Great LEGO Race Virtual Reality Coaster.  The line for this ride can easily be over 45 minutes on a slow day, so take advantage of the Monster Bash that is located right outside the ride area.  All the great music will definitely make the wait time pass faster.
The Monster Bash is from 5pm – 7:30pm

Trick or treating at LEGOLAND Florida

Collect Lots of Sweets on the Brick or Treat Trail

This trick or treating trail is filled with scarecrows, ghosts, and sweets galore! Kids 12 and under will be provided a treat bag to collect their candy haul in, and I love how the kids received lots of different options including candy, granola bars, and even a juice box!
The Trail is open from 3:00-7:00 and is weather permitting, so I recommend doing the trail as early as possible in case a Florida rainstorm comes through.

Search for Candy at the LEGO Candy Scavenger Hunt

Grab a scavenger hunt form and start your search for all the candy corns that are hidden throughout MINILAND.  We love taking our time and strolling through MINILAND, so this was perfect for my family!  Once you find all them all, head back to Studio Store to turn in your form and receive your special souvenir.

LEGOLAND Brick or Treet Scavenger HuntRide the Rides and Cool of at the Water Park

Make sure you take some time to enjoy the rides LEGOLAND Florida has to offer!  This was our first time riding Ninjago and it was awesome, the kids wanted to ride it a dozen times.

It is also may be fall but it is still HOT in Florida.  It was 90 degrees last weekend when we attended Brick or Treat, so if your spending the day at the park remember to pack a swimsuit so you can head to the waterpark and cool off in the lazy river. (Remember the waterpark closes at 5 pm)

Rock Out with the Jammin’ Jack-O-Lanterns

Dance to the spooky tunes as the LEGO Jack-O-Lantern Trio comes alive to put on a great 7-minute musical performance!  This show starts at 7 pm and continues every 15 minutes until the park closes.  I recommend checking these fun pumpkins out before the fireworks because it gets very crowded as everyone is leaving after the fireworks spectacular is over.

End Your Night with A Fireworks Spectacular

Make your way over to Pirate’s Cove around 7 pm to grab a pair of 3D glasses (That’s right fireworks in 3D, cool huh?!?) and find a great seat.  The show starts at 8 pm and lasts approximately 7 minutes.  This was our first time seeing fireworks at LEGOLAND Florida and I left in aw!  The storyline was great, the fireworks were fantastic, and when the 3D glasses that transformed the fireworks into lego bricks were worn this show was incredible!
