Merlin’s Magic Wand will provide tickets for nearly 200 Make-A-Wish guests to enjoy the theme park and help kick off Christmas Bricktacular with a Tree Lighting Ceremony. LEGO Santa and the stars of “The LEGO® Movie,” Emmett and Wyldstyle, will take the stage to light the LEGO® Christmas Tree. The tree is more than 30 feet tall, made with a combination of 270,000 LEGO and DUPLO® bricks.
LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s parent company, Merlin Entertainments, created Merlin’s Magic Wand to put the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children. Teaming up with Make-A-Wish for this special event, the two charitable organizations aim to give this wonderful group of children a day to escape and enter a world where they can take control.
The annual Christmas Bricktacular event will continue weekends in December with extraordinary holiday-themed LEGO builds, interactive LEGO Santa and LEGO Toy Soldier Characters and snow fall in Fun Town.
