Gotham City’s Caped Crusader kicks off an awesome lineup of special events at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in 2017, promising plenty of fun, fireworks and festivities at the popular vacation destination, including two all-new events.
Whether it’s fan-focused celebrations of blockbuster properties like “The LEGO® Batman™ Movie” and LEGO Star Wars™, an exclusive KIDZ BOP concert series or a unique spin on special occasions like Halloween, Christmas and New Year’s Eve, LEGOLAND Florida Resort offers an incredible calendar of kid-centric events that bring to life the limitless creativity of the LEGO brand.
Here’s what’s happening in 2017, the resort’s awesomest year ever:
The LEGO Batman™ Movie Days – March 4-5 & 11-12; new this year!

KIDZ BOP Weekend – April 28-30; new this year!
The No. 1 music brand for kids will deliver three days of high-energy fun during this inaugural event exclusive to LEGOLAND Florida Resort.
