THE LEGO® MOVIE WORLD officially opened to visitors on March 27th at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, taking its guests on an exciting journey from the theater to the theme park!
THE LEGO® MOVIE WORLD was created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and LEGO®. This new expansion features three awesome new rides and numerous attractions, all of which were inspired by the characters and themes of the worldwide blockbuster THE LEGO® MOVIE™ and the sequel THE LEGO® MOVIE™ 2: The Second Part.
“We couldn’t be more excited to officially open THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, “THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is a key piece to our expansion and growth as we further cement ourselves as a multi-day destination.”
It's no wonder why THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is the largest expansion in LEGOLAND Florida Resort history! It has an incredible energy and movie-quality feel. The moment you step inside, you are walking in downtown Bricksburg with its authentic cityscape, lovable LEGO® MOVIE™ characters, dining in Bricksburg's favorite restaurant Taco Everyday (because Tacos aren't just for Tuesdays!) and enjoying all kinds of fun surprises.
In addition to the excitement of feeling like a life-size LEGO minifigure in the immersive land of THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, guests get to enjoy some of the world's most advanced ride technology with these three new rides: THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight, Unikitty’s Disco Drop and Battle of Bricksburg.
“THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is a game changer for LEGOLAND Florida Resort,” said Keith Carr, project director of Merlin Magic Making. “The immersion and theming that we’ve incorporated into the area is unlike anything we’ve ever done. Our guests will have so much fun on all three rides, but the land’s marquee ride, THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight encompasses the only 180-degree turn on a flying theater in the world.”

“Our goal is to put a smile on every child who walks into LEGOLAND Florida Resort. By the looks of excitement on the faces of our guests, I know we accomplished that today,” said Jackson.
That's not all! The fun can continue beyond the Park if you decide to stay in one of the new THE LEGO MOVIE themed rooms at the LEGOLAND Hotel! There rooms are designed with familiar scenery and beloved characters from The Lego Movie. Adults can relax in their own room inspired by Emmet's apartment and kids can dream of spaceships and adventures in the starts by staying in the separate children's room themed after Benny's spaceship!
